I had my gallbladder removed, and the care I received at GRHS was the most heartfelt, individualized, attentive care I have ever had. Everyone that I came across gave me their undivided attention and compassionate care. I truly felt that I was not just a routine surgery. In addition, the follow-up care, phone calls, and check-in from multiple staff members reassured me that I made the best choice in returning to Glenwood to get the best care. Thanks to all!
