Shout Out!

Shout Out

"A SHOUT OUT to EvergreenHealth, Nurse Hotline. I have heard from two different people recently what a wonderful service EvergreenHealth is providing by offering the 24 hour Nurse Hotline. The nurses discussed with the patients the immediate steps that needed to be taken to prevent an emergency situation. They addressed the fears, answered important questions, but most of all, made sure that the appropriate steps were taken by the patients for quality health care." Submitted by Lisa Roberts, Lisa Roberts Marketing Services.

"A THANK YOU to Country Inn & Suites! They did an awesome job of catering a recent college event. Food was great!" Submitted by Cascadia Community College.
