Hear from our Heart Patients

Lee and Beverly Droescher, of Norfolk, have shared a lot over the years, including the same heart surgeon. Both had heart surgery at Faith Regional Health Services less than two years apart. 

"I can't see someone in Norfolk going anywhere else for the type of care we experienced." - Lee Droescher 

"The ICU nurses were all totally amazing - just exactly as they were for my husband. I can't thank them enough." - Beverly Droescher

After open heart surgery, Maudie Hess, of Norfolk, lost her ability to play her dulcimer due to weakness in her arms. With the help of the staff at Faith Regional's Cardiac and Pulmonary Rehabilitation, Hess built up her strength again and was able to accomplish her top goal - to play her dulcimer again. 

"We have an excellent hospital. I can't say enough about the staff and doctors. And the facility is wonderful. I am just so thankful I could have the surgery right here. - Maudie Hess
