I have enjoyed a life-long friendship with Louise Pooley Sanders. In fact, both of us were born in the original hospital in Oakdale.
Louise is committed to the need of maintaining a community hospital for the convenience of Oakdale citizens. Her 17 years of employment at our present Oak Valley Hospital allowed her the opportunity to provide individual attention and care to a multitude of patients and their families.
Louise consistently demonstrated compassion with the families of her patients and provided them with answers and directions to aid them in caring for their loved ones. Her guidance for these families spilled over into her personal life and she didn’t mind one bit. Many times we have been at a local restaurant and a family member of one of her patients would stop at our table to address one of their needs … I used to tease her that going out with her was like strolling around with a movie star!
A vote for Louise Pooley Sanders, would be in the best interest of Oak Valley Hospital. She has a long term vision of the hospital needs for Oakdale, and would work tirelessly to benefit the medical issues of our community.
