Glen Woody

When 55-year-old truck driver Glen Woody was running late, his co-worker became concerned. Glen was a proud and reliable truck driver, and it wasn't like him to be behind schedule and fail to check in. Glen's team sought to track him down, and when they did, they had him taken to the hospital. The team thought Glen was experiencing food poisoning, but Glen actually had suffered a severe stroke.

James Kirk

Known as "Jimbo" by the staff, James Kirk made terrific progress at Ballard Rehabilitation Hospital as he recovered from a second stroke.

Janet Kirksey

Earlier this year, Janet Kirksey admitted to Ballard Rehabilitation Hospital following surgery on her spinal cord. Janet had spent the previous 30+ years suffering from back pain and finally decided to have a laminectomy to address the issue. After the procedure, Janet experienced difficulty with lower body dressing and walking, leading her to Ballard for inpatient rehabilitation.

Tim Benjamin

Having a sore back was nothing new for Tim Benjamin, having worked many years in the construction industry. So doing some "usual" heavy lifting one day, Tim didn't think anything of it. That was, until the next day when he experienced severe back pain.

Darryl Wright

Darryl Wright is lucky to be alive. After a head-on motor vehicle collision, Darryl sustained minimal injuries, the most significant being a fractured hip. His injuries resulted in a stay at Ballard Rehabilitation Hospital for inpatient rehab.

Paul Berger

Life after limb loss is an adjustment. Paul Berger is no exception to that statement.
