For the Heyer sisters, an academic medical center and a community hospital
came together at the right time.
Washington Hospital and UCSF Benioff Children’s Hospitals are teaming
up to bring you outstanding health care in our community.
Just ask Sukhdeep Heyer of Union City. Her two daughters, 5-year-old Simran
and 11-year-old Sukahmangit both had contracted very bad cases of influenza
(the flu). They became so severely dehydrated that their pediatrician,
Dr. Patrick Burke, advised Mrs. Heyer to bring the girls to Washington
Hospital. Once there, the sisters were admitted and cared for by UCSF
pediatricians. They were both given IV hydration and carefully monitored
for their fever. Simran spent one night at the Hospital while Sukahmangit
was there for two nights. Their mother was speechless with gratitude for
the excellent treatment and attention she and her girls received at the
Hospital. This new affiliation of award-winning hospitals came together
to bring the best health care to the Heyer family, and to everyone who
is cared for at Washington Hospital.
