Grant G.

On 5/13 I was treated at the emergency room for pain from a kidney stone. The care and attention give me was outstanding. Today I received a phone call at home from the PC-C that treated me. In my 72 years I have never gotten a call from any hospital that has treated me in the past. I just want to say thank you and am very grateful for your concern.

Mee V.

On Nov. 2, my husband, Nhia Yang, had a hard time breathing so I took him to the emergency room at Rideout Hospital. I am so thankful for the loving and caring doctors and nurses who treated my husband. They did their best to treat my husband, even though we are Asian. Thank you very much to all the staff at Rideout Hospital. I know God will repay every single staff for all the good things that they have done for all the patients.

May you all have had a happy Thanksgiving and may God bless you for the new year.

Ron G.

I want to personally thank the Rideout Hospital staff in the Emergency Department for the professional care and compassion they showed my wife Norma. On Dec. 1, she arrived with excruciating pain in her back and thanks to Dr. Kulwinder Singh, and both nurses Melisa Atkins, R.N., and Tiffany Flowers, R.N., they were able to help her through a difficult time.

Dr. Singh was very thorough, he explained carefully what tests needed to be taken and reassured us while we waited for pain relief and a diagnosis. A day after my wife went home, Dr. Singh made a follow-up call to see how she was doing.

Thank you to each and every one who cared for my wife — your treatment helped her feel better and calmed our fears.

Steve T.

Many people say that other than our valiant military, fire fighters and peace officers, there are no heroes anymore. To that, I say "balderdash."

I recently had a near-death experience and encountered many heroes, beginning with the rapid response paramedics from the Yuba City Fire Department and the Bi-County Ambulance Service and the emergency room personnel, especially Dr. Dhillon and nurse Tara. These folks achieved hero status for me and do so for countless others each day.

Following the life-saving ministrations of these heroes, another group stepped in to see me to full recovery. This group, namely the hospital doctors, nurses and aides, began with the intensive care unit nurses whose round-the-clock vigilance was professional, compassionate, and thorough.

Once out of the ICU, the floor nurses, aides and student nurses took over with responsive, compassionate care while juggling Rideout Hospital needs of several other patients.

These folks are my personal heroes and are heroes to many others, even though they may blush at such an appellation. So, you may say there are no heroes anymore, but I know of many out there and give them all my heartfelt thanks.

Luis (Rod) R.

Earlier this spring, I was diagnosed with a malfunctioning mitral heart valve, and to correct it, I needed open heart surgery. My appointed surgeon was Dr. Baron Harper. He works out of Rideout Memorial Hospital in Marysville. I was unable to make the first appointment, and it was rescheduled for the following day. He was notified that I had arrived, and he ran all the way from Rideout to his office so not to keep me waiting. What's up with that? Unheard of. Ten minutes into the conversation, I was positive that I was in the best possible hands. My family (who all wanted to take me to Sacramento) met with Dr. Harper and bombarded him with questions. Afterward, they all concurred that he was the right surgeon for me. They realized why I was so at ease and so positive on the outcome. As I expected, all went well. After being released, my friends commented on my weight loss and they were surprised that I just had open heart surgery. I can't express enough of my gratitude to Dr. Harper. He checked on me in the morning and late evening while I was in the hospital. Rideout's staff, to me, is second to none in caring for their patients. Also, I was thoroughly impressed and grateful for the care my wife received five years ago when she was their patient for 19 days, and I am so pleased that I was a recipient of the same care.

Tamara G.

We are writing this letter to express our deepest gratitude for the health care professionals in our area. Tamara Godfrey had open heart surgery with a rare atrial septal defect known as ASD on Dec. 6 at Rideout hospital. How do we go about thanking all of the people involved in saving and preserving her precious life? This is just a small tribute to the people, starting with Dr. Hamid Kourdoni (primary MD), Dr. Rupinder S. Brar (cardiologist), Dr. Erium Tariq (MD urgent care), then the cardiothoracic surgeons, Dr. Baron Harper and his partner, Dr. Patrick Griffith.

We would also like to thank their astute and confident staffs and the surgeon team as well as the ICU team and staff on the fourth floor at Rideout. We would sincerely urge all Yuba/Sutter county residents to look no further than right here in this area, as there are excellent medical professionals with abilities, knowledge and personalized service second to none.

Thank you all again from the bottom and tops of our hearts. We were all treated with the utmost respect and care, and she has recovered miraculously!

Thanks from Tamara and Butch Godfrey along with daughters, Jennifer Godfrey of Yuba City and Sarah and Amber Cayer of Roseville. Tamara Godfrey and Family, Yuba City

Ron M.

This letter is to convey my appreciation to the Rideout Memorial Hospital in Marysville. My daughter, Jo-anna Myles, became very ill and passed away on April 26. The superb care that the staff from the ICU on 3M did for my baby in her last days was absolutely phenomenal and displayed to me the caring and professionalism that all caregivers should display.

I would like to thank everyone at the Rideout Hospital, from the security staff, cleaners, cafeteria staff, doctors, nurses, specialists and everyone else who helped her and made things as comfortable as possible. Also a great big thank you for accommodating the family and multitude of friends filling the waiting rooms and hallways during this hard time for all. Marysville should be proud to have a hospital of this caliber for its people.

Karen C.

My husband and I want to publicly thank the RNs and CNAs at Rideout Hospital. Jeane, Gabriella, Curtis, Ron, Juana, Daphne, and Liz: You made my husband's stay as pleasant as possible with your excellent care, kindness and great attitude, even at 3 a.m.

You worked to help my husband while maintaining his dignity. I had promised candy, but was stricken with the same illness that my husband had and have been home in bed for the last week, but I will come through, I promise, because I know that nothing says thank you to a nurse like candy! Also I want to thank Mel, my hubby's roommate.

He had a wonderful personality and great attitude. Mel, hope all is well with you. Anyway, God bless you all.

Rideout saves lives

This is a letter praising the local heroes at Rideout Hospital that save lives every day and often go unnoticed. These talented professionals provide quality care close to home every single day.

I am writing this letter in regards of the excellent, compassionate care my mother received by your staff as she was under their care for a open heart surgery procedure and a valve repair March1-11.

Your staff was exceptional in all aspects from the moment our mom, Gurminderjeet Gill, arrived via ambulance to your ER, through her three-day pre-op stay on the cardiac floor through the cardiovascular intensive care unit and until her discharge post-op. Each staff member was kind, compassionate, culturally sensitive, and very knowledgeable about her medical issues.

To name a few staff members that we want to acknowledge:

Jill Schultz, she diligently answered all of our medication questions.

Respiratory therapy staff: Jinder, Ryan, Denise and Katelyn.

Nurses Sonia, Mopey, Paredema, Diane, Renee and Sarah.

Dr. Griffith and Dr. Harper; these two gentlemen spent so much time educating us about the surgery with so much patience and compassion. They answered countless questions for us. Post-operatively, Dr. Harper rounded on our mom three times a day even each weekend day. Anyone can practice good medicine but to exceed our expectations with their attentiveness and caring amazed all of us.

Dr. Bains, Pulmonologist and Intensivist, was also amazing with his care during her stay.

Having quality care so close to home is a rare treasure. You are so fortunate to have such a great team of healthcare professionals.

As a side note, my sister, Romi Uppal, social work case manager, is a 15-year employee of your wonderful facility. Our mom, Gurminderjeet Gill, was also a Rideout employee for 11 years, many years ago.

Again, a heartfelt thank you to your stellar team of professionals.

Sukie Gill, Santa Rosa; Romi Uppal, Yuba City; Amar Gillof, Yuba City

Denise D.

I, Denise Dalton, D.O.B., was released from Fremont-Ride out Hospital Marysville CA. on 3/20/2013, after spending 9 long days there with a new diagnosis of Multiple Sclerosis/Transverse Myelitis.

After weeks of depression and not understanding of how this happens, I was released and into the care of Rideout Health Home Care Services without a treatment plan or pain management plan set ahead of time.

Since this time I have been meeting with in-home health care regularly in my home and began physical therapy a week after my release with Candy who explained the importance of physical therapy. She explained that Rick would become my regular physical therapist a few times a week on a regular basis.

Since Rick has been working with me, I have seen much improvement in my ability to get around with the assisted devices and am 50% more flexible in other areas that were once stiff and flaccid. Rick has a very professional attitude and at the same time very gentle and informative. He has a way of explaining and communicating important information that will benefit me all through this healing process and beyond.

I sincerely hope that you value the employees that you have working for you. Your physical therapists are miracle workers and provide a service to us that would otherwise be left untreated. I greatly appreciate the services that you have provided for me Rick and I know I would of never of come this far without your gentle but steady persistence to push me a little further each visit. Because of your persistence I now have 80% use of my right leg, which before I only had 20% movement.

Your time and dedication is commendable, I thank you so much for helping me become stronger with each visit. I know with your persistence I will sky dive again and eventually walk. Thank You!!!!

Recently my young niece, Jo-Anna Myles was admitted to critical care on 3M of Rideout Hospital in Marysville, CA. This letter is to commend all the doctors, nurses, technicians, and support staff who so lovingly took care of Jo-Anna until her passing on April 26th. I am from Canada and I can honestly say that I have never personally witnessed such amazing hospital staff ever. The compassion, honesty, and genuine care of your people will always be a warm, sustaining memory for me. I also want to applaud your housekeeping staff .. your hospital is spotless, and as I said to one young man on your cleaning crew, our hospitals in British Columbia could take some serious instruction on how to clean and maintain a health facility from your staff! A couple people I’d like to name personally for their incredible attention to Jo-Anna and the family’s concerns were: Abdullah, Aundrea, Dr. Bains, and the respirologist I met on the last day, Bill. I can’t thank all of you enough .. the citizens of Marysville should be very proud of having Rideout Memoria Hospital in their community . Oh, and last but not least .. your cafeteria is fantastic! The food is so delicious, and the staff so friendly. Sincerely, Rene Myles (Jo-Anna Myles’ aunt)

Larry R.

I recently took my wife to the Rideout E.R. (i.e. Sunday, April 7) to treat a allergic reaction to prescribed medication (Lactimal). She was extremely distressed/panicked when we arrived at the ER and was immediately seen by Cindy C. at the Intake Desk. Cindy was incredibly compassionate and empathetic and yet very direct and straight-forward. She was able to calm my wife down, get the information she needed for the attending doctors/nurses and quickly got my wife the help she needed. We also wanted to acknowledge Cheryl - she also directly assisted my wife and was able to comfort and calm her. I also want to add that I was able to observe Intake Nurse Cindy for about an hour that Sunday morning - and I have to say that she dealt w/a myriad of people with an even more diverse set of maladies (real or imagined...) - and she dealt with each the same calm, compassionate, straight-forward manner. She is a credit to your facility - I hope you’ll let her know.
