Grateful Patient: William Teeters
My wife and I had just moved to Shippensburg, Pennsylvania from Maryland. I was feeling more winded than usual. Since we were moving, I didn't think it was heart related. Two days before Christmas, I began experiencing chest pains that radiated into my neck. My wife drove me to the Chambersburg Hospital. I was scared, but the nurses made me feel at ease. The staff didn't waste any time. From the emergency room, I was sent to the cardiac catheterization unit, received a stent, and two hours later, I was resting in my room. I've been to a lot of hospitals in my lifetime, and Chambersburg Hospital is the best.
