To the Editor:

My husband passed away on June 24, 2009, despite everyone's remarkable skills in the medical field.

I want to thank the volunteer EMT's and paramedic on the Bridgewater Ambulance, all the personnel in the Emergency Room including the Director of Emergency Medicine, the nurse manager, the nurse practitioner, the doctors and the ICU Unit.

Thank you also to the Hospital's third floor personnel for their compassion and concern for my husband on a previous stay in the hospital.

All of us in the surrounding communities should be very proud and thankful for the New Milford Hospital and all of our volunteers.
