A Spectrum of Care When You Need It

A Wide Spectrum of Care – Here When You Need It

A severe infection in her left foot and life-threatening sepsis brought Susan Henshaw into the emergency room at the Estes Park Medical Center. There was great concern that Susan’s foot would need to be amputated in order to save her life. The entire team went to work to do everything in their power to see that did not happen.

“Never have I been treated more kindly and been allowed to be more involved in my health care decisions as I have been at EPMC. This experience has changed my life, and I have had many weary, scared, tearful, sad moments. When people ask me how I stay so positive and encouraged, I share several reasons, one of which is the EPMC professionals and their positive presence in my life at the time I needed them,” said Susan.

Over the course of several months, Susan has experienced many facets of care available from the Medical Center. She has had three surgeries, spent more than a week as an in-patient, had 7 weeks of infusion therapy/IV-antibiotics as an out-patient 3-4 times a day, multiple tests, procedures, labs, hugs, warm blankets and cups of tea.

“Having been a patient in other larger hospitals, and seeing the size of EPMC, I was prepared to be told that I would be transferred to the valley,” said Susan. “But everything I needed – physicians, surgeon, physical therapy, personal care, wound care and emotional support – was here and has been expertly handled in a professional, caring, friendly and supportive way.”

It is only through donor giving that the Medical Center can offer the wide-range of services necessary in our community and continues to be held up as a national example of high-quality care, compassion and friendly service. Donations to the EPMC Foundation support programming, purchase equipment and fund capital improvements at the Medical Center, in addition to benefiting programs such as Emergency Medical Services, Prospect Park Living Center and Home Health/Hospice of the Estes Valley.
