“This is a great place for care! I recently had back surgery and was on the Joint & Spine Unit during my hospital stay. I am so thankful for the care and attention I received from Dr. Parsioon and the hospital staff at Saint Francis. From the moment I stepped off the elevator in Same Day Surgery, I knew that I was at the right place. We were welcomed to the hospital, and all of my fears and apprehensions were addressed by the nursing staff. Growing up hearing the horror stories of “back surgery,” I was fearful of the unknown. The first person I encountered in Same Day Surgery came into my room, introduced himself, told me of his history at Saint Francis, and why he liked working in the Same Day Surgery Unit. He explained what to expect going into surgery and how to control my pain after surgery. I couldn’t have asked for better care than I received on the Joint & Spine Unit, which I attribute to the successful outcome of my surgery. The Unit is such a great addition to Saint Francis Hospital. The spacious separate rooms give both the patient and caregiver their own space. I was able to rest, while my caregiver talked on the phone and watched TV. The suite allowed the nursing staff and physician’s room to come in to assess me, without my caregiver having to be misplaced.
I’m back at work and able to resume my normal activities without pain. Thank you Saint Francis!”
“The Joint & Spine Center was absolutely wonderful. I wouldn’t go anywhere else for my care! I had great staff taking care of me and aiding me in a smooth recovery. The Center has excellent accommodations that you can’t get anywhere else. My husband loved having his own room while being with me in the hospital.”
“They have the best facility, the best surgical staff, the best support staff, and I could not be happier with the result and the care I got here. For the first time, there is no pain when I walk.”
