Kelly Decker is beyond grateful to the teams at Bon Secours Community Hospital for providing excellent care and taking the time to patiently explain each step in his treatment. Even during the most stressful days of the pandemic, he said the staff cared for him — and countless others — with respect and kindness.

Maryann Ey was born at Bon Secours Community Hospital in Port Jervis. In the intervening years she has been a patient, a nurse and now a volunteer.
