"We were treated like royalty."
A Fairview nurse who helped Maggie Merelle give birth to her first child in 2004 changed her schedule so she could attend the arrival of a second baby two years later. That was when Maggie and her husband, William, were certain that they'd found a special hospital.
"We were treated like royalty," said Maggie. The proprietors of Rouge, a restaurant in West Stockbridge, Maggie and Bill also praise the high quality of care in the hospital's Emergency Department. "They've been a huge help for our employees if they get injured," Maggie said, adding that Rouge employs members of the county's growing Hispanic community.
"It seems that in nearly every department there's someone who speaks Spanish," she said. "It's just a wonderful place."
