Ron's True Story of Coordinated Care

Care Coordination Helps Patient Overcome Immense Obstacles Recovering from Heart Disease

Ron Johnston was discouraged. He was suffering from coronary artery disease, diabetes and high blood pressure. But his team of care coordinator, family doctor, home care nurse and cardiac rehab nurse at UnityPoint Health - Allen Hospital in Waterloo, made him feel cared for. 

This feeling had been missing since his wife's death. When Ron came to the doctor's office feeling very faint, he was relieved to see a familiar face - his care coordinator. Ron's health and his spirits have been improving. He's been able to come off many of his medications, and he enjoys walking at the mall.
