Meet St. Marvelous

When your mother has open heart surgery, you can feel pretty helpless. Just ask Tim Mertz. His mom was being treated at St. Vincent’s Open Heart Recovery Unit— a special unit created solely for open heart patients. It’s the only one of its kind in Jacksonville. Nurse Suzanne Dedmon went the extra mile for Tim’s mom. Actually, he said she went an extra 150 miles. He wrote us insisting we put her on all the billboards around town as St. Marvelous. Tim says Mom is back home in Georgia and doing great thanks to the “marvelous” care she received. Meanwhile, Suzanne’s trying to get used to her new title!
