Pohlen an as­set

Matamata Chronicle - - Opinion/news -

I re­cently broke my arm and wish to thank our lo­cal hospi­tal, Pohlen, for the speedy way in which I was seen both by the doc­tor and the X-ray depart­ment.

Within an hour of my ac­ci­dent, I had been won­der­fully taken care of with­out the need to travel to Hamil­ton.

To the kind ladies who let me jump the queue to let me treated by the doc­tor and have the X-ray, thank you for your com­pas­sion.

I have no doubt that I would have spent hours wait­ing at A&E to be seen, let alone be treated.

I feel Mata­mata has a won­der­ful as­set right here on our doorstep.

I am grate­ful that I am part of the Mata­mata com­mu­nity and that we all have ac­cess to such an amaz­ing fa­cil­ity.

So, thank you so much to the Pohlen Foun­da­tion trustees and the large num­ber of vol­un­teers who do­nate so much to the hospi­tal.
