Commentary: Beebe provided extraordinary care for my wife

Submitted to the Cape Gazette by Chuck Mowll

Beebe Healthcare didn’t save my wife. No hospital in the world could have. A few weeks before Christmas, my wife Darlene lost her appetite to eat, began experiencing stomach pains and cramps, and lost 14 pounds. On Dec. 26, I took her to the Beebe Healthcare Emergency Room where she immediately received a CT scan and was diagnosed with Stage IV Metastatic Liver Cancer. Ten days later she was dead. She had just celebrated her 64th birthday Dec. 20.
