Honor Your Caregiver

  • Alfred Mundt
    Heart transplant patient
    "My daughter was going to get married around the same time,” recalls Alfred Mundt of his heart transplant surgery. “Drs. Walsh, Cooper and Burkett worked with me during and following the transplant, made sure I was able to walk her down the aisle.”

    “There are a lot of special people at UT,” says his wife Adela. “We wanted to do something for the community since they have done so much for us.”

    Thanks to the Mundts’ generous donation of $1 million, the community will have access to a heart transplant facility. “The building is state-of-the-art and the doctors are the finest,” says Ms. Mundt. “This is the best thing that could happen anywhere, and I am so happy it happened in Toledo.”
  • Nicole Johnson
    Kidney transplant patient
    “Dr. Selman was great. Everyone was so nice as far as patient care; they took very good care of me. I’m very glad he was my surgeon. The nurse coordinator for transplant, she’s very good, keeping you in touch with the social workers, the people who handle the financial situations. The University of Toledo Medical Center is a wonderful place.”
  • Regina Myatt
    Surgery patient
    “Dr. Thomas Papadimos stayed with me around the clock. Dr. Kelly Manahan and Dr. John Geisler performed so diligently. That same concern and care was given by several nurses; I remember Roxanne Grinonneau, Jen Schell and Allison Batey: they were just awesome. I also want to recognize Lakisha Carter, patient care aide. She looks like a Barbie doll and works like an angel.”
  • Laura Johnson
    Stroke survivor
    At the age of 23, Laura Johnson had a massive stroke.
    “The care at UTMC is just so wonderful and so complete. I was not surprised by the level of care in that I know this is a fantastic institution, and I had no doubt that I was getting the best care. I’d say I’m doing wonderful.”

Excellence in health care is the result of great teamwork.

I hope that each of these outstanding individuals has made a favorable impression on you during your stay at UTMC. Their job and my job is to ensure that you have been treated with the greatest respect, courtesy and with the highest medical standards possible.
