What People Are Saying


Surgery Staff,

(01/07/2021)   I would like to express my gratitude to the team that cared for my recent shoulder surgery. Thank you Lori for the perfect insertion of the IV, Willow for the thousand easy questions, Steve for the no nausea and more that i can't remember, and Rueben for your thorough instructions. All of your extraordinary kindness, care, and professionalism put me at ease and assured me that I was in good hands. I am well and anxious to start physical therapy. Thank you!! 

Med Surg Staff,

Thank you all for the excellent care during my stay with you folks. May God bless you for your servant attitude. You made my stay very pleasant.

Physician Office and Lab Staff,

I just wanted to thank each of you for the great job you did for our health screening again.  Our guys give me compliments all the time after we do these health screenings.  I appreciate the effort and attitudes you all show each year.  Keep up the great work with us.  We plan to stick with Community Memorial for our health screens, flu shots, HepB vaccinations, and tetanus vaccines.

Dr. Grothaus and Surgery Staff,

Dr. Grothaus and the surgery staff are amazing! They were professional and efficient! The nurse was wonderful at calming my nerves and the CRNA was perfect. Dr. Grothaus took the time to answer all of my questions and explain everything to me. I am so happy with my decision to have my surgery done at CMH.

Dr. Wukie,

My daughter and I brought my grandson into the ER early morning. Dr. Wukie was amazing! He was very soft-spoken and very soothing to my grandson who was already a bit freaked out. 

Dietary/Kitchen Staff,

Hat's off to an excellent group of cooks and chef's here at Hicksville. The food here has been wonderful. Home cooking at its finest. Your no bake cookies brough back memories. They tasted just like my moms.
