I have been in Madisonville St. Joseph Hospital for rehabilitation since my open-heart surgery, in September. I want to thank my prayer warriors, including members and pastors of Bedias United Methodist Church, Shiloh Baptist Church, Madisonville UMC, Faith Outreach Christian Center in Navasota, and many friends and neighbors, for their continued prayers, I want to thank the MSJH Ladies Auxiliary and Heart to Heart Florist, in Madisonville, for the unexpected flowers to brighten up my room. I have been blessed with much appreciated visitors from both Bedias and Madisonville friends and neighbors.

I have been in Madisonville St. Joseph Hospital for rehabilitation since my open-heart surgery, in September. I want to thank my prayer warriors, including members and pastors of Bedias United Methodist Church, Shiloh Baptist Church, Madisonville UMC, Faith Outreach Christian Center in Navasota, and many friends and neighbors, for their continued prayers, I want to thank the MSJH Ladies Auxiliary and Heart to Heart Florist, in Madisonville, for the unexpected flowers to brighten up my room. I have been blessed with much appreciated visitors from both Bedias and Madisonville friends and neighbors.

Now I’ll let you in on what must be Madisonville’s best kept secret… Our little St. Joseph Hospital staff. I have been an RN for over 40 years, and I cannot sing enough praises for all the staff who are taking such wonderful care of me. Dr. Hubley sees me every day and gave up one of his off Saturdays to make extra trips back into town when I got really sick and had to be shipped back to the “big hospital (St. Joseph) in Bryan. Dr. Hubley’s dedication to his patients is wonderful.

The support staff in Madisonville are, each and every one, kind, caring individuals and no department is lacking in everyday heroes who go above and beyond their jobs descriptions… Maintenance, Housekeeping, Dietary, Occupational and Physical Therapy… have been my own personal cheering section encouraging me forward, and progressing to our end goal of getting me stronger and with good endurance, so I can get home.

Now my other band of 24/7 heroes are the Nursing Staff, the RNs and the CNAs. These ladies and gentlemen work long, hard 12-hour shifts. Each and every one of them are highly skilled nurses who have great caring and compassion for their patients. I am secure as their patient that I have the Best Possible Care given to and for me. I cannot sing their praises long enough, or loud enough.

Madisonville St. Joseph’ Nurses are hidden jewels in a diamond mine and Madisonville is blessed to have them all here to care for us.

My sincere thanks to all the departments and staff of our St. Joseph Hospital,

Sandra J. Woodruff, RN and patient at St. Joseph Madisonville Hospital
