  • “I had hip replacement surgery and came to your facility. This event became the best thing that has happened to me in a long time. Because of the type of surgery I had my movements were very restricted. I felt very despondent because I have never been so incapacitated in my life. My nurse was terrific. She took care of me as if I was a member of her family is the best way to put it without sounding maudlin or sentimental. Thanks for the terrific care I received there and I would recommend your institution to anybody.”
