"I would like to express my gratitude to the nurses, therapists and doctors at the ICU and Coronary Ward (Canberra Hospital)"

About: Belconnen Community Health Centre Canberra Hospital / Cardiothoracic surgery

(as the patient),

I had a quintuple heart bypass surgery at the Canberra Hospital earlier this year. I would like to express my gratitude to the nurses, therapists and doctors at the ICU and Coronary Ward. They were an amazing bunch of professionals. Special thanks to my cardiothoracic surgeon Dr Bhattarai who did a wonderful job on my heart and gave me a second chance in life. I think the patient-care was first class. Can't say much about the afternoon tea ladies!

Also the excellent home nurse service provided by the ACT Community Health (Belconnen) and the Cardiac Rehabilitation Program at the Calvary Hospital deserves mention. These important services helped me alot in my recovery. I was not afraid after being discharged from hospital.
