Derrell Stewart hospitalized

According to a story posted on the Singing News website yesterday, Southern Gospel legend Derrell Stewart, former pianist for the Florida Boys, is in intensive care in West Florida Hospital in Cantonment, FL. According to his wife Revé, he had been blacking out and is currently in cardiac intensive care.

On a lighter note, to my fellow blogger Wes Burke: You might want to brush up on your studies of the Florida healthcare system. I mean, I’m sure they’re struggling with the economy and all that, but still, “the hospital in Florida” is a little much.

  1. It could also be a tip to the quality of that particular hospital…THE hospital in Florida. 😛

  2. Point granted. 🙂

  3. He should go to Lecacy up in Portland. When my mom had surgery, her recovery room was huge, and she had it all to herself. Plus, it had a nice view of the city.

  4. I hope and pray that he will be OK.
