At PVHC we strive to provide safe, compassionate, and sincere care to our patients. Don’t just take our word for it though! Read on to learn about our patients’ experiences…in their own words.

Richard Heller

San Angelo, Texas

In Richard’s Words…

“I was in very good care there at the hospital.  The best care I’ve ever had, and I’ve had 12 major surgeries, all over the country.  I told the doc there, Dr. Childers, that if I ever had to recommend a hospital to anybody else, with 10 being best, I’d give it two 10s. 

The girls were very concerned for my safety.  If I ever tried to get up on my own, they’d be right there.  It was fantastic.  They also treated my wife and daughter like they were queens.  My family was taken care of very well.   I would recommend the hospital to anybody. 

I really appreciate the great care I received.  It couldn’t have been better.  Everything worked out great.”

Powell, Wyoming

In Becky’s Words…

 “We are so happy to have found Kinsey Baxter with Powell Valley Healthcare. Currently, she is providing occupational therapy for our daughter, Kaylee, to assist with her sensory needs. Since working with Kinsey, we have seen so much growth in our daughter. Everyday tasks, such as getting dressed can turn into very stressful events for us. Our daughter is now wearing long sleeved shirts. This may seem like a minor activity; however, in the past, this was not a possibility.

Our daughter loves going to see Kinsey; she is so amazing with kids. Kinsey’s professionalism, guidance and knowledge are only a few of the reasons that I would highly recommend Kinsey Baxter to any family looking for support with occupational therapy.”

Lovell, WY
Patient Stories

In Sarah’s Words…

“I appreciated that I could trust that you had my best interests at heart. I could trust in the decisions you made because I had developed a relationship with you. I could trust that if forceps or a vacuum or even if a c-section had been the route taken, it would be because it was necessary, and all other options had been tried.

I want you to know how grateful I am for you and the nurses who took care of me and for the calls and decisions you made when I didn’t know what to do. I think I can say, this was my easiest delivery and it wasn’t that easy. Thank you for pushing through it with me and for being there for me and my family. I look forward to seeing you again at my 2 week & 6 week checkups.”

Tabitha Smith

Powell, WY
Patient Stories

In Tabitha’s Words…

“I had a bone marrow biopsy at Powell Valley Healthcare by Dr. Collins. After a myriad of testing she felt it was necessary to determine what was going on with my condition. Dr. Collins and Shawna both listened to my concerns and made me feel comfortable about the procedure. I felt in control because Dr. Collins was flexible and gave me options. I woke up from the procedure feeling great and just a little sore. Shawna and Lindsey, in the OR, made sure I received the medication that was best for me as I’ve developed some medication allergies over the past two years. Dr. Collins and Shawna were amazing. Thank you PVHC!”

Trudy Cozzens

Powell, Wyoming

In Trudy’s words…

“My doctor told me about the pulmonary rehabilitation program at PVHC.  He sent me there and it is the best thing I could have ever done.  I experienced severe issues from covid back in February 2022, even with being vaccinated for it.  I thought I would always be on oxygen.  When I first started my rehabilitation at PVHC, my oxygen saturation was terrible.  It was at 81 to 82 percent.  After completing the program my oxygen saturation is now 93 to 94 percent.  When I saw my oxygen results at the end of the program, I wanted to cry I was so happy.  I know I wouldn’t be here where I am today without this program.  I would recommend it to anyone having breathing issues.  My doctor didn’t think it was possible, but I reached my goal.  I wanted to get better and not be on oxygen.  My lungs are clear now and I don’t need oxygen.

I will continue working to care for my pulmonary health.  Cyndy gave me so much good information to help me.  She gave me exercises I can do at home plus an exit plan for places to go to get involved in other exercise programs.  Cyndy has so much helpful information to give to patients struggling with lung issues.”
