Dear CVRMC, ICU staff and community members,
On June 28 I was admitted to Cobre Valley Regional Medical Center for COVID complications with Pneumonia. I was in Intensive care for 40 days and in those 40 days I received exceptional care. The Doctor’s, surgical staff, nurses and CNA’s in the ICU were amazing. My family called constantly for updates on my status and the staff only made my family feel comfortable and at ease. The staff was absolutely compassionate and wonderful. My family and I are extremely appreciative for everything that the staff did. We are especially appreciative to Nicole Renon, RN BSN, Cayla Rodriguez, RN, Jesse, RN, Daniel Skaggs, CNA, Jaylin, CNA, Keri, in Physical Therapy and night staff Kathleen, RN, Sandra, RN, Ryan, RN and many other staff that we unfortunately forgot to mention, for the compassion they showed to myself and to my family members during my stay at CVRMC. Nicole and Cayla went absolutely above and beyond. Thanks to your staff, on Aug. 7, 2020, I was released and I’m in recovery and home with my family. We can’t say thank you enough, we love you all!
The day of my release CVRMC staff, Evelyn Vargas and community member, Christine Castaneda had set up a homecoming parade as I came out of patient discharge. Many community members and family including, Globe PD-Commander AJ Castaneda and fellow officers, Globe Mayor Al Gameros and Irene Gameros, Miami Mayor Sammy Gonzales, Miami PD- Officers Bender and Alonzo, Tri-City Fire and Globe Fire participated. It was an amazing celebration and surreal feeling to be welcomed home by my loving family and friends. I appreciate everyone who came out to welcome me home. Our prayers go out to all family members of people affected by COVID-19 and to those who continue their fight against the disease. Thank you to my Community and for all of those who prayed for my wellbeing.
Marivel A. Hurtado and Family
