Coordinated Care at UnityPoint Health
Gerald's True Story
Care Coordination Was Key to Gerald's Stroke Recovery
Gerald Stuart suffered a debilitating stroke in his home and his recovery and rehabilitation took many months and involved many people at UnityPoint Health. From the rapid response of LifeFlight, to UnityPoint Health - Methodist, to Younker Rehabilitation to UnityPoint at Home, Gerald's team coordinated his care to help him recover, regain mobility, go home and reach his special goal of participating in the Iowa State Fair. He shares his story, along with his wife, Bea, and his hospital and home care team.
