Please view the following patient testimonials. You'll be inspired by the bravery of our patients and by the compassion of our physicians who treated them.
Doug Dibble’s Story
To these young hockey players, it was the biggest save ever.
Michael and Steven Dibble wanted their dad (and coach) to get well quickly. As did the staff at ProMedica Flower Hospital. So when Doug Dibble arrived there with signs of a heart attack, the Emergency Center staff quickly stabilized his condition. He was then transported via ProMedica Mobile to the advanced cardiac care unit at ProMedica Toledo Hospital. Angioplasty surgery followed, plus several days in intensive care.
But the news was good: Doug Dibble – husband, father of two and coach of 15 – survived.
Judi Young’s Story
Her road to recovery started with us.
Not everyone has their name on a street sign. But Judi Young has been a driving force in Sylvania since 1978. For more than 20 years she served as a city council member, concerned with upgrading the downtown and initiating new recreation and senior services. Judi cares about her community – a feeling she knows we share at Hickman Cancer Center.
When doctors recognized melanoma on her knee, Judi immediately turned to the ProMedica Cancer Institute.
