Noreen Bivona's Story
I had my son in 1974 and my daughter in 1978, both at GBMC.
My son was born on December 22, 1974, and for Christmas the nurses put the babies in Christmas stockings with a Christmas cap. It was just so festive and so cute.
My kids also had their tonsils out at GBMC. I have had many surgeries at GBMC and I would not go anywhere else. GBMC has come a long way in terms of the facilities and comfort for their patients.
As an employee, I did not need to change any of my doctors because they are all right here. Both of my parents were treated here for cancer, colon and ovarian, and GBMC had the best oncologists in the area. These two doctors have been in the Top Docs edition of Baltimore magazine every year. Thanks to them, my parents have been cancer-free for years.
Thinking about my experiences with GBMC brought back good memories of when my children were born as well as the birth of my grandson twenty-seven years later. I was there for the delivery and it has left such a wonderful impact on my life. I feel very at ease knowing that there is a hospital that is there for me.
