"My husband Jim had a knee replacement at the center, and in less than 12 weeks, he was back playing shuffleboard competitively!"
"I am happy to send kudos to the staff at Martin Health. What an efficient and caring group they are. I had a total knee replacement and stayed at the hospital for a few days. I can say very easily that the RNs, LPNs, aides and physical therapists gave their very best care and knowledge to make me feel better and make me more comfortable. I applaud them all for their dedication."
