    Was at Saint Francis and checked myself out after comparing their reviews to Valley Medical. You guys are leaps and bounds beyond them from your professionalism, how qualified your doctor’s and nurses are to how clean your hospital is. So glad I made the decision of leaving Saint Francis!!! Thank You for saving my life by the way! 🙂
