The Marsalia family wanted to find a way to say thank you to the doctors and staff at OakBend Medical Center for making the final days of their wife and mother’s life a bit easier.
With the hospital’s Vision 2020 Campaign in place, the family decided to purchase one of the six new benches anchored in front of the OakBend Medical Center’s Jackson Street campus and dedicate it to the ICU Nurses.
“‘Tis the season to be thankful, grateful and appreciative. That’s what we feel for what we now call our extended family at OakBend Medical Center. We are thankful for the exceptional care my mother received. We are grateful for the numerous staff members that truly showed our family love and generosity. But most of all, our deepest appreciation goes to the ICU nurses and staff. You went above and beyond your call of duty. On top of your everyday job, you all made what was a very hard time in our lives as comfortable and bearable as possible. For this we are truly blessed that God put you in our path. There is a special place in heaven for all of you! Thank you and many blessings to you all” stated Shana Nesvadba on behalf of The Marsalia Family.
The family invited some of the ICU team and doctors that cared for Mrs. Marsalia to join them in the bench dedication. It was a chance to reunite under happier circumstance and one more opportunity to say thank you in person.
