"Hi, my name is Mattiya Parker and I'm currently a patient at Ballard Rehabilitation Hospital.

I was getting off of work one day and, unfortunately, I was the victim of a hit and run. I had a broken bone in my legs, I had broken my pelvis and my back, and they told me I wouldn't walk. I also had a fracture and a hemorrhage in my brain, but fortunately, they stabilized it and I had no damage.

After about two weeks in the hospital, Ballard came by and told me I had been accepted and I was ecstatic to come visit this place. It's rated five stars and let me tell you, they did a perfect job with that rating. Since I've been here, I've been able to stand up. I've been able to walk. I can take stairs with crutches.

I've also met some wonderful people. One of my favorite OTs is Rebecca. She is very verbally open with me and she works really hard with me and lets me push my limits to the perfect point. They take wonderful care of you here. If you ask something, they're eager to provide it for you. And honestly, if you need something like a rehab place, I would definitely recommend it!"
