    I have been a patient several times, both as a few long inpatient stays, but still as outpatient. Because of my complex medical history I have also been an inpatient at hospitals in DC and Baltimore. Guess where I have always gotten the best nursing care? Right there in our pearl in La Plata. Congratulations!
