Commuting for Care

When Arnold ‘Bruce’ Carroll was advised to have his left knee replaced in 2020, only one hospital was on his wish-list – Community Memorial (CMH) in Hamilton, NY. He himself had never been a patient at CMH, but two of his children were born here, and most recently, his brother had surgery here. “I knew the reputation of Community Memorial, and I instantly was fully committed to having my surgery at this hospital,” states Bruce.

The commute to a facility in Oneonta or Cooperstown may have been shorter, but traveling for high quality care in a 5-star hospital wasn’t an issue for Bruce or his wife. “From the moment I was there for my pre-op visit, to arriving the day of my surgery, to discharge afterwards – the staff at Community Memorial took care of all my needs.”

Attention to every patient, personal care given and the prompt and efficient response of staff are just some of the memorable things Bruce recalls from his knee surgery. “The entire hospital was so clean, the care was immaculate, and even the hospital food was good. Community Memorial deserves every star of its 5-star ranking.”

Patients that choose Community Memorial in Hamilton for their care find the same results as Bruce – individualized, detailed care in a great setting. Bruce may need his other knee replaced in the future, and he’s already chosen to return to CMH. “I would tell anyone considering care in a hospital to choose Community Memorial – I went out of my way to come here because of how great it is. Patients should know how well taken care of they’ll be. Choose CMH.

You can be a part of what we do; a gift to the Community Memorial Annual Fund supports all services in vital times. You can help ensure we remain a part of our rural community, carrying on the reputation of quality care for patients like Bruce. When you or your family needs us, we’re here, providing quality care, close to home.

Consider the tremendous impact YOU can make today and give.

For the community,
