"Changes for the Best"

About: Darlington Memorial Hospital

I was in Darlington Memorial hospital a few years ago and vowed I would never return because I found it unwelcoming and not very clean. I have just been in for day surgery with a stay overnight and found it to be the very best of hospitals that I have ever been in, everything has changed for the very best, it is super clean, staff care is wonderful the bed I slept in I wish I could have taken home with me it was so comfortable and adjustable. Thank you Darlington Memorial Hospital for the overall care and satisfaction that has been given to me, I will not have any fear of returning and I will highly recommend it to everyone, keep up the great work, you should be proud of yourselves.
