Mackay and Whitsunday Life

Five Star Medical Service

You never realise how lucky we are to have such remarkable local hospitals until you need the service and experience the magic firsthand.

This is exactly what happened to Whitsunday local, Koren Stewart who took to social media site, Whitsundays Chat last week to thank the staff who helped her out when she needed it the most.

“I just want to give a shout out and a huge thank you to Proserpine Hospital and Proserpine Ambulance service,” read the post.

“You don't realise how lucky we are, until we really need them. There are so many support services, all in the one place, exceptional food that tasted like homemade by mumma and everyone went above and beyond with their bedside manner and care, by all staff, medical and cleaning staff, honestly take a bow!”

“That team functioned like clockwork, a masterpiece. Promptly seen to on numerous emergency visits, with compassion and professionalism and went from zero to feeling like a million bucks!

“Please accept my thanks and gratitude, for a job well done! I'm dropping off chocolates, I'm telling you, they deserve so much more than that! How blessed are we to have those Earth angels!”
