Customer Corner

"I recently had an illness and had to be in the hospital for approximately 3 1/2 weeks. I had nurses from your organization come to my home to get me back on my feet. I had lost a lot of my muscle mass and stamina during my stay at hospital, plus had some medical needs. Your nurses from the North Country region are excellent! Every single one of them was great! You can take pride that you have employees like this representing your organization. Please convey my deep gratitude and appreciation for the nurses in my time of need. I think this is a great service! Thanks so much."
