Barbara, the daughter of a grateful patient, recently shared her mother’s story of receiving care at CHRISTUS Spohn Hospital Corpus Christi – Shoreline. She gave praise to the CHRISTUS Spohn physicians, nurses and Associates who helped save her 88 year-old mother’s life.

“Finding the correct diagnoses was a long and difficult investigation, but the doctors never gave up on my mom. They made sure to do all the tests and x-rays necessary to make sure they found the cause of my mother’s illness. These nurses and doctors were not just her caregivers, but they were her advocates ensuring that she received the best care.

“Dr. Petros was so compassionate he would even call from his home to reassure me that my mother was okay.

“Melinda, Danielle and Kourtney in the Rehabilitation Department were so helpful and motivational. Every time my mom was afraid to fall, they would give her the confidence that she needed to get up and try. All of the nurses were excellent and we are very thankful for all of their patience.

“It definitely took a team to get my mom better and thanks to their medical knowledge, diligent work and persistence, my mother is now in rehab outside of her home and even walking without her walker!

“For all of these reasons, please recognize the following physicians, nurses and Associates as our Healing Heroes. We also pledged a donation to the CHRISTUS Spohn Foundation as a tribute gift in their names. Please ensure that they are recognized, and let them know my mother and I are thankful for all they have done.”
