Efficient and Urgent Care

Misty and Shane Gabbard, Clay County, Kentucky residents, have five children. During online schooling, one of their sons, Andrew, experienced a cooking accident that led to physical bruises and burns. Concerned for her son's well-being, his mother, Misty, immediately brought him to the ED at AdventHealth Manchester, where he quickly received the quality care he needed.

Andrew's father, Shane, was immensely grateful for how AdventHealth took care not only of his son but of his entire family. He was two counties away and could not make the distance in time to meet his wife and son. "It was an awesome experience for them (the medical staff) to take my family and treat them like their family.", he said, as he recalled how the quality of service in the ER was excellent on both a medical and personal level.

Misty, Andrew's mother, appreciated the staff and their conduct. In her words, "They knew exactly what to do, to help me and Andrew, and take our fears away." She recalled how one of the nurses held Andrew's hand while dressing the wounds and tried reassuring his fears, which in the process, reassured his mother's fears too.

Specialized Service

The Gabbard family has trusted AdventHealth with their family's care since their children were young for pediatric services. Mr. Gabbard appreciates the hospital's services, saying that "the family practice is exceptional," and praised the hospital for its expansion of services.
