“The staff was friendly. The facility was nice and very clean. The service and attentive care were amazing! Not a single regret with my decision to go to Florence Hospital. I had surgery on September 30th, 2021 and it’s been 11 months, but I’ve lost over 130 pounds! I’m no longer pre-diabetic and I feel so healthy and happy. Thank you!” – Jennifer Diaz
