Rehab Success Stories
Meet our latest rehab graduate, Ms. Gail Bean!
Ms. Gail came to us on December 11th after having hip replacement surgery on December 8th. When asked about her time with us at The Columns, Ms. Gail said, “The care I received was wonderful. It was like taking a vacation!”
Ms. Gail teaches physical education at the Jonesville Elementary School. She said she was excited to get back to her kids in a few weeks. Pictured with Ms. Gail is one of her students who came to visit her, and Lacy, our certified occupational therapy assistant.
Keep us in mind if you are having a procedure done and would like to do your therapy close to home. We would love for you to come “take a vacation” with us!
