The annual Jim Thorpe Inpatient Rehabilitation Reunion at CCMH was held on October 11th to celebrate the success of former rehab patients.
Each year, a courage award is given out to a patient who has shown the most strength and perseverance. This year’s courage award went to Gloria Dille.
Gloria suffered a stroke in May. She started her rehab and was in the Jim Thorpe Inpatient Rehab for about a month working with the speech, physical, and occupational therapists.
Gloria said if it wasn’t for the rehab center, she wouldn’t be back home with her husband, which was her goal all along. “This facility sets a bar and nobody else can touch it. They really take care of their patients. They put the patients first. You develop a bond with each person you work with.” There were many nominations for this year’s award. The winner is chosen by the Leadership team from the rehab center.
