In October of 2018, Chiropractor Erin Wright had a sudden recurrence of a lung condition she had experienced 14 years ago called spontaneous pneumothorax. After being free of any issues with her lungs for more than 14 years, she was shocked that it was happening again. She knew that it was time to consult a thoracic surgeon and called Glens Falls Hospital for help: “From Cheri and Dr. DeCunzo to the teams of providers assigned to my surgeries and the incredibly kind and attentive nurses of the surgical floor, to say my time at Glens Falls Hospital was a “good experience” is quite the understatement. I feel so fortunate to have been in such fantastic care and can now report I am back to full duties as mom, wife and ‘Dr. Erin’.”

“Being diagnosed with a third cancer in six years is truly terrifying. The care I was fortunate to receive at Glens Falls Hospital is the perfect combination of personalized attention blended with a nationally certified comprehensive cancer center – the highest accreditation a community hospital can attain. Their kindness and compassion will never be forgotten. Now, six years cancer free and living my best life, I feel not only grateful but truly blessed to have access to a wonderful local facility. Thank you Glens Falls Hospital, from the bottom of my healthy heart. This, combined with their excellent support services, and constant quality improvements, gave me the confidence to be home, getting the medical care I needed, but still be with my family and participating in life.”
