Stories from Proud LGH Patients and Staff

Should you care to share your hospital experience, or that of a loved-one, please feel free to contact us, as we cherish your feedback.

“I cannot say enough good things about the nurses and doctors at this hospital. Everyone from the birth centre case room, to the post-partum recovery wing, even to the ER staff have been beyond amazing. Top notch care all around. Lakeshore GH gets a bad rap way too often and I just have to say that that’s not true for us at all. We couldn’t have asked for better care for our little family. I am so grateful for all the kindness, patience and empathy given by everyone we met. Gold star treatment all the way.”

“It feels odd to say “I loved my experience at Lakeshore” but I cannot imagine a better group of nurses to look after me. The nurses in the Mat Ward were absolutely amazing. As the only woman who was there not to have a baby, they were sensitive to this. They always ensured I had everything I needed, were wonderful at helping with pain management and were just lovely women to be around. Thank you Lakeshore for making what could have been a very awful experience in my life much easier.”

Nicola Barton

“I was admitted to the ICU. I was convinced I was going to die. I was operated on twice and had a tracheotomy. I was pumped full of antifungal and antibacterial medications. Finally, I began to slowly recuperate. Without the skill, dedication and caring of the doctors, nurses and technicians of the Lakeshore General Hospital’s Intensive Care Unit my wife Suzanne would be a widow and my children fatherless.”  

Andrew Storer  

“I’ve been treated at the Lakeshore General Hospital for Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, coupled with a heart attack and ulcerated colitis. I was in rough shape. I would not be here today had I not been properly cared for. The warmth, the care and the expertise that I received at the Lakeshore General Hospital was by far above and beyond the call of duty. It was life-saving! ”

Ken Blackburn

“Thank you to Dr. Eric Lillie, Dr. Biem, and all the Lakeshore General Hospital physicians, nurses, orderlies, technicians and administrators for the excellent health services provided. My wife was in the hospital for 8 days for a double pneumonia and is now recovered and home again. We both thank you. West Islanders are fortunate to have the Lakeshore General Hospital nearby.”

Erwin C. Hamilton

“My son was born at the Lakeshore Nick Di Tomaso Birthing Centre. It was without a doubt the most exciting day of my life. The personal care my wife and son received from the doctors and staff was simply extraordinary. We couldn’t be happier to give back to the hospital which gave us so much.”

Shaun McMahon

“My family and I want to thank each and everyone who helped in my recovery. Did they go above and beyond their duties? Absolutely, but not just for me; everyone in the Maria Saputo Monticciolo Short Stay Unit was cared for in the same manner. I will never forget all my little angels who helped me get through it all. I thank them for saving my life.”

Donna Reed

“I would like to take this opportunity to give a BIG thank you to all staff and doctors in ER and 4 West. My wife spent nine days at the Hospital last month. As busy and hectic as things were in ER, she says the care she and others received was top rate and the same was true at 4-West. So please pass on her thank you (and mine as well) to all the nurses, doctors etc.”
