Because of Siskin Hospital, I can say, “I Love You.”

February 28, 2013

When retired New York City police officer Jimmie Baker suffered a stroke, his wife Deanna was constantly by his side encouraging him in his recovery.

After spending nearly 25 years together, she couldn’t imagine never being able to share a meal or a loving embrace with her husband again.

Knowing he needed the best stroke care available, she chose Siskin Hospital’s dedicated Stroke Rehabilitation Program. Specially-trained therapists and nurses were able to help the man she fell in love with regain his independence. After months of Physical, Occupational, and Speech Therapies through Siskin Hospital’s Inpatient, SubAcute, and Outpatient programs, Jimmie is back home with his wife, enjoying the everyday things that make their golden years special.

Today, going out to eat together means more than it once did. Jimmie has learned it isn’t just an evening away from the house – it’s another chance to savor a romantic moment with the person he loves most.

Because of Siskin Hospital, I CAN.
