Thanks to all at Baltimore VA Hospital Center [Letter]

In light of all the negative press that the Veterans Administration's health care system has received, I want to send my sincere thanks and gratitude to the Baltimore VA Hospital Center.

I recently had disc fusion surgery at the facility and the experience could not have been better. My doctor and his team were professional in every sense of the word. From pre-operative procedures and instructions until I entered the operating room, I was treated with the highest levels of respect and dignity and kept informed at all times.

I want to say thanks to all the ICU and 5th-floor nurses who attended to me during my stay: Anya, Blandina, Judy, Emily, Ronni, Sharon and Beta. I was carefully monitored and all my needs were immediately taken care of. Future veteran patients will be in very good hands.

Tom "Woody" Woodall, Luray, Va.
