Story of the Month

photoGrateful patient Maggie Grimes of Hamilton donated a new simulator to be used for educational purposes after recovering from surgery at Marcus Daly Memorial Hospital. She presented the gift to anesthesiologist Robert Ward at the offices of the Daly Hospital Foundation in April 2017 in appreciation for his lifesaving heroics.

“I came to the hospital in so much pain but didn’t anticipate any complications for my surgery,” Maggie said. “But suddenly my body reacted in ways no one could have anticipated. Rob was right there and I believe his compassion saved me. His quick thinking and can-do attitude saved me. His skill level saved me. I am a lucky woman. If I had not been at Marcus Daly Memorial Hospital in his care, I don’t think I’d be here today.

“Rob should be recognized,” Maggie said. “He is a silent warrior who saves people every day. He keeps patients calm at every step. I’d like to pull him out of the dark of the operating room and spotlight his incredible contributions to the success of MDMH.”

As a retired registered nurse, Maggie said it was an honor to work with Rob, especially on educational seminars for the nursing staff.

“He is an advocate for education and so I thought a simulator would be an appropriate gift to the hospital to honor his work and to help with education for the nursing staff,” she said.

Maggie estimated the value of the simulator to be $1,000.

Thank you Maggie for your generosity and thank you Rob for providing outstanding and lifesaving care for MDMH patients.
