Wheeling Health Right Inc
June 2, 2010
My mother owes her life to this nonprofit organization. She was able to be admitted to the hospital through the emergency department because this is a service offered by Wheeling Health Right. Dr. Commerci, her family physician, consulted a surgeon when she was admitted and she was found to have a life threatening fatal infection known as necrotizing fascitis (tissue eating bacteria). She was transported via ambulance to Allegheny General Hospital in Pittsburgh after having one surgery to try to contain the bacteria. The surgery was not a success and she needed more specialized surgeon and care that were not provided at Wheeling hospital. She ended up having 22 total surgeries, a wound vac placed, and went into acute renal failure. If she was not able to go to the hospital because of Health Right in the first place, she would be dead today! Thank you for saving my mother's life and allowing her to continue being an awesome mother. Thanks to Kathie Brown, the president of this organization, as her dedication to her patient's, patient's families, physicians, and staff has exceeded all expectations. Wheeling Health Right still provides care to my mother today and she receives her medications here as well. The staff are friendly, empathetic and always willing to help. Please keep nonprofit health care organizations such as this one up and running for those individuals that are not fortunate enough to be able to afford health care. I highly recommend Wheeling Health Right to anyone!!
I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...
being able to have my mother alive and with us today.
What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...
my mother's life!
The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...
friendly, empathetic, and compassionate about the patient's and their coworkers.
If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...
continue to help save lives of millions of people.
