In Their Own Words
Thank you to everyone at St. Luke’s who worked with me throughout my stay, you all were exceptional. Everyone had a professional demeanor and out-going personalities, which are characteristics that I deem highly necessary for success in today’s world. Everyone knew when to push me and when to hold me back. You changed my life. Thank you for always making me feel comfortable and special. Because of St. Luke’s I have the desire to continue on.
