Mercy Health - Irvine, KY

Juanita regained her mobility after a broken hip because you support rehabilitation services

When Juanita Hughes broke her hip, she was able to get a leg up on her recovery with your help.

She had surgery and then was in Mercy Health Marcum and Wallace Hospital for several weeks for recovery and rehabilitation. She’s back home now and living independently because of the inpatient and home therapy your gift provides.

“They worked with me, always encouraging me and helping me accomplish my goals,” Juanita said.


“I can’t say enough about them, as well as all of the doctors and nurses. It was
an unbelievably good experience.”


“No matter what time I called for them, they always came in with a smile on their face.”

Spending that long in the hospital was hard, and Juanita said it was stressful. But the staff made all the difference. Your gift to support rehabilitation services and home health care really gave Juanita the tools she needed to be able to take care of herself.

“I went from not being able to do anything to now, I can cook for myself and take care of my home,” she said. “It was such a blessing. I’d recommend our little hospital to high heaven!”
