Why I love CKHS

“They don’t treat you like a patient. They treat you like family.”

Background

Frank Simpson worked in heating and air conditioning repair for more than 50 years. Because of the rigors of his job, Simpson has dealt with some serious health issues. He chose Crozer-Chester Medical Center for his care. 

Frank Simpson, Patient Testimonial

“I have been to Crozer-Chester Medical Center on numerous occasions. The first time was when I was diagnosed with mesothelioma and was instructed to go to Crozer by my primary care doctor. I was under the care of pulmonologist Kenneth Lander, M.D., who is truly amazing. He was always willing to answer any question and explain everything in a manner that I could easily understand. Since that moment, I knew if I ever had a health problem that Crozer was the place to go.”

“In October 2013, I started having heart problems and I immediately knew that I needed to get to Crozer for treatment. The day I arrived at the hospital with my wife I was helped out of the car and into a wheelchair by a Crozer staff member. At that moment, I was told that ‘I died’ and I became incapacitated. Crozer cardiologist Jonathan Felsher, M.D. and the emergency room team of nurses were able to bring me back to life. The care that I received in the emergency room and ICU that day was surreal.  I am eternally grateful to all the Crozer staff that helped save my life.”

“On March 24, 2014, I was back at Crozer for a skin graft that included receiving 150+ staples in my leg. I was under the care of Gregory Domer, M.D., who was able to save my leg. Again, the Crozer staff took excellent care of me and was able to put me back together.”
