A patient who had heart valve replacement surgery at CHI Health Good Samaritan, Kearney, NE, in summer 2016 recently sent his thanks—in a big way. ?Kelli Rademacher, a member of the Imaging team at Good Samaritan, shared the story of the patient’s “thank you note” on Facebook.

“Every year when harvest is done, my Dad, Jim Obermiller, disks a message into a hill by his house highlighting an event from the last year. This year it reads ‘Thanks CHI’ (with a heart underneath). On July 8, 2016, my Dad had valve replacement surgery at CHI Good Samaritan in Kearney. He did NOT want to have this surgery but after a lot of convincing from family and friends, he agreed. We want to thank EVERY individual at Good Sam for all they did for him! He has his life back.”
