To the editor of THE EAGLE:

Recently our 95-year-old family matriarch was admitted to Berkshire Medical Center’s 2 South Medical Stroke/Neurology Unit. We’d like to express our deepest gratitude for the care members of this team provided. They went above and beyond professionalism with their compassion and concern.

Not only did they give remarkable comfort care to her, they cared for our very large family that did not want to leave her side. They made us feel very welcome and didn’t make us feel we were in the way. They showed such generosity during this difficult time as we were losing our loved one.

Our community is very fortunate to have this wonderful gem as a part of BMC. Extra gratitude to Dr. Seetha Muthavarapu, Dr. Jason Touhey, and her primary doctor, Dr. Barry Lobovits, for their support and compassion. God bless them all!
