"After having my two daughters at East Cooper Regional Medical Center, I knew that the quality of the care was second to none, but I didn't fully realize the depth of compassion and expertise the hospital staff had until I was there for a third time. At the age of 34, I was facing a breast cancer diagnosis. After doing my homework, I realized that the best of the best was right here in Charleston.
Because of East Cooper’s wonderful staff and my incredible surgeon, Dr. Craigie, what could have been an extremely scary and trying time of my life, was little more then a blip on the radar. I knew I was in the hands of some of the best oncologists, reconstructive surgeons and nurses but it didn't stop with simply having the talent. The staff also had that very rare mix of skill and kindness and empathy that is all too often lacking in our health care system today.
I don't think most people know just how lucky we are to have such cutting edge doctors right here in our own backyard.
THANK YOU East Cooper, for being there for me through the good times and even more importantly, the bad."
