Fairfield resident Terry Derby was recently diagnosed with diabetes and prostrate cancer. He had this to say about his treatment at Jefferson County Health Center:
“After leaving the University of Iowa hospital I was fortunate to be able to continue my rehab here at JCHC. Every department – from the time you walk in at the front desk, to Physical and Occupational therapy, to the dietary department and the entire nursing staff – was wonderful. A special thank-you to Jennifer in Speech Therapy who was so kind and caring.”
On November 20, Chris Johnson of Fairfield began to experience gastrointestinal bleeding while out of town. Fearing a long wait in a Des Moines hospital emergency room, he made the decision to travel back home to Jefferson County Health Center
Though the JCHC ER was busy that day, Dr. Goodwill and staff were able to examine Chris within fifteen minutes. The exam proved his condition was more serious than he had originally thought.
"Thank you JCHC for the correct diagnosis and the immediate treatment of my stroke. When time was of the esssence they worked professionally and efficently to get me the drug that preserved the quality of my life ."
If you have any of the following symptons, note the time of the day, and go immedialty to E.R.
My daughter Lori contacted the Jefferson County Health Center emergency room to let them know I was coming in. My good friend Bill Moore quickly came to my aid and drove me to the hospital.
I traveled from out of state to have my surgery at the Jefferson County Health Center by Dr. Gregory Ivins because of his expertise in orthopedic surgery. I really appreciated Dr. Ivins' honest communication about my surgery and possible outcome. My previous surgeon had not been as forthright. I have been in many hospitals and have had many surgeries but I have never experienced such exemplary treatment from every single person I came in contact with.
