The Orthopedic Hospital Invites Patients to Reunite with Their Physicians and Take a Swing
(May 12, 2011) – The Orthopedic Hospital of Lutheran Health Network has invited patients who attended the total joint replacement class within the past three years to join staff and physicians for a reunion from 5 to 7 p.m. on Thursday, May 19.
The reception will take place at The Plex South, 5702 Engle Rd., where TOH staff and physicians will connect with past patients and their guests. Attendees will be able to enjoy hitting golf balls at the driving range, chat with their physician, visit the education stations or partake in tropical hors d’oeuvres and desserts.
“It’s a pleasant way to reconnect with past patients to see how they are doing since their surgeries,” said Shelly Miller, CEO, The Orthopedic Hospital. “Everyone at The Orthopedic Hospital is interested in knowing what impact surgery has had on our patients and how it has changed their lives. When patients want to return to visit and share their experience, it reinforces to us that we are providing the best care and making a difference in the community.”
