    Is This Sentence Grammatically Correct?

    In December last year, she was diagnosed of breast cancer and told to need to be hospitalized and treated immediately
    Dear teachers, is it grammatically correct? I find the wording of "(was) told to need to be hospitalized" wierd. How do I rephrase it in a more concise way? Thanks in advance:)

    Yes. Or, a little closer to your own words:

    "...
    told she needed to be hospitalized and treated immediately."
