Strength in stories: What Paoli Hospital patients are saying
We are honored to touch people’s lives every day. Here are some of the lives we have touched, and why they recommend Paoli Hospital to others.
Strength in the fight: Meet Steve
When Steve, a 46-year-old father from West Chester, was diagnosed with lymphoma in spring 2015, he was determined not to let his cancer conquer him. And—with the help of the Cancer Center at Paoli Hospital—it didn’t.
Strength in family: Meet Mary
After the birth of her son in Ronan, Mary and her husband returned to Paoli for the birth of their two daughters. So, when it came time to welcome their fourth child, the couple didn’t think twice; they chose the hospital that had always put their family first.
Strength in recovery: Meet Jody
As a Paoli Hospital volunteer, Jody was used to answering questions and escorting patients to their appointments. But when knee pain made it difficult to complete everyday tasks, she knew it wouldn’t be long before she became a patient, too.
Strength in a crisis: Meet Bob
Susan’s dad, Bob, had always looked out for her and her siblings. When he began to experience the symptoms of a stroke, it was their turn to look out for him. With the help of the Paoli Hospital trauma team, the patriarch is back on his feet and back to his family.
Strength in an emergency: Meet Tony
When Tony started experiencing abdominal pain and a low-grade fever, he took treatment into his own hands: He took two Advil and went to bed. But, when his pain persisted, the Paoli Hospital team was there with answers—and a more effective treatment plan.
