A few days after her 70th birthday, Susan awoke from a nap feeling extreme abdominal pain. She was rushed to the Mid Coast Hospital Emergency Department.
Immediately, she was taken into the Operating Room with Brady Mullin, MD, one of Mid Coast Medical Group–Surgical Care's world-class surgeons. After her initial recovery in the hospital, Susan received home care from CHANS Home Health & Hospice as she finished getting better.
Inspired by her exceptional care, Susan made a choice to return to Mid Coast Hospital as a volunteer greeter in the Emergency Department, so she could help others experiencing medical emergencies just like herself.
Mid Coast Hospital participates in the American College of Surgeons (ACS) National Surgical Quality Improvement Program (NSQIP), a nationally validated, risk-adjusted, outcomes-based program to measure and improve the quality of surgical care.
Additionally, Mid Coast Hospital's Enhanced Recovery After Surgery (ERAS) program supports quality surgical outcomes through four main goals: reducing the patient's length of stay, decreasing complications, promoting positive outcomes, and increasing patient satisfaction. ERAS is in place for a number of surgeries at Mid Coast Hospital, including total joint replacements, hysterectomies, and colectomies.
