Capital Health Release:
Statement of thanks from patient’s family
We would like to thank the people of Halifax for their assistance and concern regarding our daughter following the recent pedestrian/vehicle collision on the afternoon of December 3 on Spring Garden Road. Many have thoughtfully enquired about the health of our daughter and we thank people for their concern. As with all individuals, our daughter’s health is a personal matter and we ask that people respect her privacy in that regard. However, we would be grateful if you would keep her in your thoughts.
We feel fortunate to have benefitted from the assistance of two first responders who were nearby and willing to help our daughter when the accident occurred. The EHS paramedics and staff of the emergency department, ICU, intermediate care unit and other areas at the Queen Elizabeth II Health Sciences Centre have all been exceptional. Everyone at the Halifax Regional Police Service has provided individual support in a manner that far exceeds merely filling out police reports. Dalhousie University’s tenacious dedication to student care has been demonstrated by their generosity and determination to problem solve on our daughter’s behalf. Haligonians we’ve never met have dropped off flowers, cards and reading material.
All Haligonians should be very proud of the public services that are provided in their city and of the Maritime hospitality that was offered our family. We are determined to pay it forward in the Haligonian way when we return to our home province.
