Thanks to hospital, wound care clinic

To the editor:

I want to express my sincere appreciation to a group of unsung heroes in our community. Recently, I found myself in need of medical attention for an injury on my foot. I was admitted to Tennova Healthcare-Shelbyville for 24 hours. The doctors, nurses, and technicians there were extremely professional and provided excellent care. The citizens of Bedford County are fortunate to have a great hospital when unexpected illness arises. I cannot thank them enough for starting me back onto the road to recovery.

The next group of behind the scene heroes I want to thank are the wonderful professionals at Tennova Wound Care. Cindi, Kassi, Lindsey, and Nicky, along with Lana Beavers, work hard daily to help people regain control of their lives. They have certainly made a difference in mine. When I first began this journey, the outcome was uncertain. These ladies have tended to my wound, supported me, and encouraged me. I am continuing to heal each day, thanks to their hard work and dedication. It is impossible to express how thankful I am to have such a fantastic facility with a professional staff. Once again Bedford County is so lucky to have Tennova Wound Care located in our community. In a time when the world is filled with so much negativity, I wanted to publicly express how thankful and grateful I am to each of these staff members. This is a fantastic community with many unnoticed healthcare givers that make a difference in our lives. Thank you from the bottom of my heart.
