I wonder .. after this horrible event ... the very hospital that literally saved Kevin Everett's life, Millard Fillmore Gates, will it still be considered for closing? One life saved I hope will save this hospital!

Don't be that dense. The "hospital" didn't save Kevin Everett. The doctors in it saved him. They will be transferred to other area hospitals, where they will have all the same equipment and assistance.

It's not only the doctors or any individual doc who's been interviewed by any form of media, IT IS THE WHOLE HEALTHCARE TEAM who has worked TOGETHER - including the NURSES (without whom, any patient will not be administered meds/treatments promptly & properly); the professional TECHNICIANS (without whom, the docs will not get the lab works or x-rays or any procedure results for evaluation/re-evaluation in a life-threatening time manner); the NURSE ASSISTANTS (without whom, urine output will not be recorded for patient's kidney function, and patient will definitely for more complication like blood clots or bed sores if their help in positioning them...); PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE, I highly respect for the highly educated doctors but DON'T forget it's a TEAMWORK afterall - everyone in the healthcare team is vital & doctors' orders/prescription are NOTHING without nurses and other aides! It's the WHOLE healthcare team that saves Kelvin and any other patients as well! Most of all, don't forget about GOD (guiding these ANGELS around them, 24x7 "unconditionally")! God bless you Kevin & family.

You have a lot to be thankful for. You are already better off than most SCI persons before you due to the prompt medical care you received. I'm hoping you make a 100% recovery. I'm a C5 quadriplegic going on my 23rd year post injury (diving accident). I'm living proof that you can live a happy and successful life with this type of catastrophic injury. Best wishes, Kevin!
