Patient Success Stories
Her name is Dorothy; her friends call her "Jolly." Unfortunately, the past year was nothing but jolly. She had complications after surgery to replace her aortic and pulmonary valves. Her physician recommended Select Specialty Hospital. "I thought I was being sent there to die."
The team at Select eased all of Dorothy's fears. Dorothy's physicians worked with the hospital's nutritional specialist to maintain the stability needed to improve her kidney function.
They did it. By the time of Dorothy's discharge, she was weaned off the ventilator and eating, walking and talking again. Plus, her kidneys were functioning well enough to stop the dialysis treatments. "My doctors called me a walking miracle."
Thanks to the Select Specialty Hospital staff, Dorothy was well on her way to being "Jolly" again.
