A Birthday to Remember
On the day Roy Swander turned 52, he was admitted to HCMC. Although he would have preferred to spend his birthday somewhere—anywhere—else, Roy marvels at how HCMC was able to make it a positive experience. "I felt very cared for," Roy said. He was much more than a patient to the medical center staff; he was a person. They shared information with him, listened to his concerns, and perhaps most important, honored his birthday. "I’ve told all my friends about HCMC," he said. "It is definitely not your normal hospital. I felt much more of a connection to the providers here."
