I want to thank you for the wonderful care I received during my stay at Carolinas HealthCare System NorthEast. Once I left the Emergency Department, I was admitted to the 4th Floor Medical Unit where I am convinced the best nurses EVER work. My Care Partner, Jessica, even called back later to make sure my surgery went OK.

I had the sweetest person, James McAuley, clean my room; and Dr. Royal was my awesome doctor.

I had never had a sick stay in the hospital and I was very sick and afraid, but I was cared for so well from the time I walked into the Emergency Department until I was discharged. The nurses and care team made me feel like I was in the right place, and they were going to make sure I was OK.

— A Thankful Patient

Everyone was exceptionally nice and caring when I brought my mother to the CHS NorthEast Emergency Department. They kept us informed every step of the way.

Her care continued to go very well after she was admitted to the Post-Surgical Care I Unit.  Whenever my mother called for assistance, someone quickly answered the call bell and came in promptly to help her.  The physical therapist, Emily Smoak, who worked with my mother, was so helpful and caring.

Big positive shout out to everyone who was involved in her care!
