Jill H.

Jill was no stranger to San Joaquin Valley Rehabilitation Hospital. Several years back, Jill required our expertise after undergoing her first knee surgery. Living a very active life style, it was only a matter of time before Jill required a second surgery on her alternate knee. An unfortunate fall ensured this inevitability. As with her first surgery, Jill's surgeon recommended she receive inpatient therapy. Naturally, she entrusted SJVRH to get her back to better once again.

It was very important to Jill that she get into tip-top shape as soon as possible. Not only does Jill enjoy her active lifestyle, but she has a beloved husband at home whom she cares for.

During Jill’s stay, she was happy to see many of the same nurses and staff members.

“Even after years of being discharged from SJVRH, it was great to see some of the same staff. I appreciate being at SJVRH because I know I will receive the same great therapy and care. They are a devoted and caring group of people. I noticed everything from the cleanliness, the courtesy, and care I was getting. It’s all consistent with how I remembered it many years ago.”

“The pain was very difficult to deal with when I started therapy this second time around. But as each day passed, the movement and pain became surprisingly better. Learning how to heal, manage pain, as well as move safely made all the difference.”

The progress Jill made during her ten day inpatient stay allowed her to discharge home with rehabilitation goals met.

“I’m so thankful for such a wonderful team; people like Dr. Singh, case manger Lisa, physical therapist Mary Ellen, and all of the inpatient staff who helped care for me. I want to say it’s not easy caring for patients because there are so many things that require attention, but when the care exceeds expectation, it’s phenomenal, and it’s what I got from this hospital.”

Jill could not express enough her appreciation to all who played a part in her recovery. She is eager to get back to her active life and most of all, back to caring for the love of her life.
