Natividad staff saves son’s life

We recently spent almost eight weeks in Salinas while our son was in the Natividad hospital ICU and Medical/Surgical units after being air-lifted from a serious accident on Highway 1 near Big Sur. This letter is to express our appreciation for the excellent care he received from the trauma physicians and assistants, nurses, respiratory, physical and occupational therapists, and housekeepers and technicians. He had three major surgeries and his life was saved more than once. The skill and determination of the medical staff along with our son’s inner strength produced an outcome that finally allowed us to have him come home, which is four hours away, to continue his journey to a full recovery. Thank you, Natividad!
