To whom it may concern,
Almost a month ago, our Mother passed away at Kolding Hospital.
Her name was Angelika Schödl. She ended up in Fredericia because one of us decided to live there, married to a Dane. She was just visiting, and about to go back to Austria, where she was born and raised, to get medical treatment. She also considered herself as a Mexican, as she lived so many years there, gave birth and raised two of her children there.
Despite the fact that she is Austrian by birth and Mexican by heart, we would have not thought in a better place to go through this very painful and sad situation than your hospital. The staff always displayed high commitment and warmness. Two of us don’t even speak Danish, and we never felt we were being segregated or limited.
This letter is to let you know that not only the facilities and professionalism of the staff are at the highest level, but also understanding and sympathy from the doctors, nurses and rest of staff. I guess the primary objective of any medical service must be to help the patients on their recovery, but being kind and helpful is also very important; not only for the ones who die or their families, but for the ill people who are always in need of something more than medicines and medical intervention: human warmth.
Thank you for giving our mom such meaningful and calmed last hours, and for helping us get through it in a peaceful manner.
