Inmate thank you letter praises team at Lansing Correctional Facility in Kansas

It is always notable to receive a letter of thanks from a patient. The medical team at Lansing Correctional Facility (LCF) in Kansas recently received such a letter, in which their inmate patient details the encouraging and compassionate support he received prior to having to undergo shoulder surgery. In his letter, our patient calls out particularly memorable staff members, such as Dr. Williams (pictured), who “took time to sit down and talk” to the patient about his surgery options. The patient also mentions “Mrs. Anita,” who personally cared for him during his recovery and offered smiles when it came time to change his bandages. When closing his letter, the patient offers thanks for having “such caring people” in charge of his surgery. Now fully recovered, he exclaims, “I can do all the tings I could not do before–reach behind my back to scratch, lay on my left site, left things, raise my arm without pain.”

We also offer thanks to the team at LCF for being a true example of the Corizon Health Vision.
