There are many facets to Dr. Ronald Franzino - President of Medical Staff and general surgeon at Day Kimball Hospital, race car enthusiast, devoted husband and father, dog lover, antique collector and proud property owner.
Debilitating back pain brought all of his roles to a screeching halt. A stay at Westview Health Care Center gave him the green light to resume life at full throttle.
"In February of this year, I had spinal surgery and thought I would return home to recover. During my post operative stay at the hospital, it was apparent that going home was not an option due to my level of pain and restricted mobility. I also took into consideration that my family and outside services would not be able to provide the level of support 24 hours a day that I required to help me through my initial recovery process.
I realized that I needed further assistance and rehabilitation to assist my recovery so I chose Westview Health Care Center for my rehabilitation.
The care was tremendous! The staff planned an individualized treatment course that had me on my feet in days. The rehab facilities are terrific. All the equipment I needed to re-establish my strength and mobility were there. Each day we re-assessed and revised my rehab based on my progress.
I resumed working in the hospital 2 weeks after my arrival at Westview. I believe my return to work was accelerated by the excellent care I received at Westview."
