"On October 29, 2012 my heart stopped. I was rushed to FVH. Upon entering the ER I could not talk or walk and I passed out so I could not explain anything. FVH ER folks soon found out what happened and worked on me continuously, no stopping or coffee breaks. When my wife arrived they explained what was going on. She said they were very helpful, kind and patient (if anyone could be patient at a time like that). I was told that from the time I entered the FVH ER, helicopter ride and Mercy in Sioux City it took 3 ½ hours to get me back to life. I cannot thank Floyd Valley Hospital's staff enough for what they did - very dedicated folks.
In the past five years I had approximately two procedures and one major surgery at FVH. I had excellent care, very good service and a very clean, private room. Our grandkids enjoyed your lunch room and me too. Thanks very much and may God Bless everyone at FVH." John Van Hill

On February 12, 2013 Remsen St. Mary's Christian Leadership Team (CLT) students present a check of $544.89 to the Floyd Valley Hospital Foundation's Breast Cancer Detection Assistance Fund. Gifts to this fund provide help to any Plymouth County women who need assistance in paying for breast cancer screenings and mammograms. Students raised money through the sales of cancer t-shirts, pink-out night activities and student casual day donations. Foundation members were delighted to receive the check from the students knowing that the money would help a lot of area women in the fight against breast cancer.
