Quality Healthcare Close to Home

According to Kerry Courter, "there’s no need to travel out of town for quality medical care, when we have a great hospital right here in our local community."

In addition to being an employee of Somerset Hospital, Kerry recently had the opportunity to become a patient.  A significant sized tumor was found on his back and naturally, he wanted it removed as soon as possible so it could be determined if further treatment was necessary.

His surgery was performed by Dr. Rafael Valladares on an outpatient basis.  "The same day surgery, anesthesia and OR staff were all great.  Everyone was skilled in performing their tasks relating to my procedure and treatment.  I was confident I was in good hands throughout the entire process and had no anxiety about the procedure. " 

Kerry awoke from anesthesia feeling great and had very little postoperative pain.  Fortunately, his tumor was benign and he feels much better knowing that the tumor is gone and he doesn’t need further treatment
