Big shoutout to @OttawaHospital and the fine people who run the medical daycare unit. I’ve now had a bone marrow biopsy, a blood transfusion and two days of chemo there. Total pros. Friendly and helpful. I look forward to the next six months – I am in good hands.

Pre-op appointment in time of covid – over the phone..makes surgery just that more scary then before… the kindest staff at @OttawaHospital helps out alot. It takes such an amazingly kind soul to go into health care, thank you from a scared patient in times of #COVID19Canada

Forgot to mention one thing in tweeting about the death of my awesome grandma. The staff at the @OttawaHospital Civic campus were outstanding in taking care of mamie. Special shoutout to her favourite nurse, James, whom she called her boyfriend…1/2

Can’t say enough about the amazing staff at the @OttawaHospital, both on 6E and 5W. And my incredible family. I really didn’t think this day would ever come. But they all kept reminding me that it would, and never let me accept anything else

Catherine S. @Cat2sReplying to @StuntmanStu and @OttawaHospital

I want to nominate Dr. Claudia Malic. She is an amazing surgeon. She effectively saves my son’s life 5 years ago. My son is a burn survivor & she replaced his burned skin with his own. He actually misses seeing her face. She also works @CHEO as well as the General. Thank you !

Sue Gardner-Barclay @SMBarclay

Today, my mom celebrates her 89th birthday. Tho we FaceTime every day, haven’t seen her in 6 weeks, since she had emergency hip surgery. A big thank you to @OttawaHospital and @bruyerecare for taking such good care of her, including a piece of birthday cake today! #LoveYouMom

Christine TausigFord @ctausigford

Here’s a heartfelt shout-out to the staff of @OttawaHospital General campus. I’ve experienced first-hand their kindness, compassion and skills as I deal with illnesses of family members. Thanks nurses, doctors, social workers, occupational therapists, cleaners – everyone!

Ms. Milito @MsMilito

I am in awe today. The incredible ICU nurses @OttawaHospital took time out of their busy schedules to write letters back to my students <3. They wrote about the importance of teamwork. They really are superheroes. Thank you Smiling face with smiling eyes @StDanielOCSB @OttCatholicSB #ocsbAtHome
