Although I am a phlebotomist at Centerpoint Medical Center, I have recently had occasion to be on the other end of the needle. On Sept. 3, my family took me to the emergency room, closer to dead than alive, whereupon I am told, the entire staff worked furiously to get me stabilized. I was finally discharged after 10 days.

Words cannot express the high praise I have for everyone with whom I came into contact. I am privileged to work with such fine people and blessed to have had the compassion and professionalism of the Centerpoint team to hand back to me my life. Thank you!
