At Fairfield Medical Center, our goal is for every patient and visitor to have a positive experience, regardless of whether their stay is just for an hour or a couple of days. We want everybody to leave our facility knowing they or their loved ones received the best care possible and to feel that they were treated as an individual – not a number.
It’s stories like these below that show our commitment to our patients and why we are here.
If you or a loved one has a story that you wish to share with our Marketing team, we invite you to contact Michelle George, public relations specialist, at 740-689-6636 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
