We recently experienced in a time period of about a week and a half the outstanding professional care of doctors, nurses and other staff at Benewah Community Hospital.

They took care of our loved one with great compassion, kindness, patience and professionalism. They also reached out to us, her family, with so many kind acts. Even the food service people went out of their way to meet any needs we had. (And for the record, BCH has some of the best food around.)

We feel that the community of St. Maries treats residents and even non-residents like family. This includes the hospital, Valley Vista, banks, grocery stores, restaurants, merchants and Hodge Funeral Home.

St. Maries is truly a gem in the state of Idaho; a true community and a caring family. You are appreciated.
