Shocked Re: Peninsula Hospital

Shocked Re: Peninsula Hospital

Dear Editor;

I was shocked when I read in the November 30 issue of The Wave, the complaint of "The Alliance For Quality Healthcare" that Peninsula Hospital was performing far below the national standard.

I have lived in Belle Harbor for forty years and have been associated with our hospitals as a volunteer, and as a patient for sometime, and my wife is a life-long member.

My experience with Peninsula Hospital has been one of great respect for its nurses, medical and general staff, who have always displayed outstanding professionalism and a deep feeling of compassion towards its patients. Over the years as a volunteer, I have had occasion to visit many of my friends and associates as patients in Peninsula and invariably they raved about the care they received.

Peninsula has had many good C.E.O.'s, but none as outstanding as Robert Levine, our current one. When he took over, we were in terrible financial condition, and within a short period of time, we're back in the black again.

The improvements under his leadership have been remarkable. The rest rooms have been painted, and the floors sparkle as never before. No wonder that all of us are such proud champions of Bob Levine!

My hope is that the Alliance will be fair enough to contact our C.E.O. and let him prove what he and his staff have done for our great Peninsula Hospital.
