After being dismissed by other doctors about her health concerns, Casey Chitwood just wanted to be heard. It was not until she arrived at Hillcrest Medical Center (HMC) that the Collinsville resident finally felt she had a voice.
“I had been to other hospitals, and they were not listening to me,” Chitwood said. “The Hillcrest people were so good to me. They listened and they saved me and my baby’s life.”
