COVID-19 has devastating impact on Franklin County family

What William Roemer and his family have gone through since the COVID-19 virus began showing up in the area has removed all doubt for them about just how real, how tragic and how serious is this infection. "It's real," says Roemer's daughter, Rose Boggs. "And you better pray to God you never get it." Their family was devastated by the outbreak that began in Franklin County in March. Three family members got sick - and possibly a fourth, who had symptoms but was not tested.

Charlie Centers' Story

Charlie Centers was a patient of Reid Health in April 2020 in the early days of the COVID-19 pandemic. As a patient, Mr. Centers had a profound affect on his caregivers despite the relatively short duration (four days) of his hospitalization.

In this video, two of Charlie's children tell the story from their perspective and how much it meant that Charlie was not alone. His caregivers each tell the story from their unique perspective and the profound impact this had on them personally.

Three years after Austin McNew was seriously injured in a sledding accident that put him in a wheelchair,  the former athlete and star student at Northeastern High School is making great progress through regular rehabilitation. See what he does next...

Darke County heart patient: Caregivers ‘just made me feel good’

A unit nurse made him so comfortable “she could have been a daughter” – and even returned on her own time to give him a hug before he was discharged. These unexpected personal touches, in addition to the special procedure that fixed an irregular heartbeat, gave Max Subler a lasting and warm impression of Reid Health.

Stroke survivor: Take meds, ‘get regular checkups for heaven’s sake!’

As a nurse it didn’t take Sandy Collins long to figure out what was going on. She had just returned from lunch and was standing at a nurse’s station in the Post Anesthesia Care Unit at Reid Health.  “I told one of my coworkers – ‘I think I’m having a stroke.’ They took me straight to emergency” recalls Sandy Collins of the June 2017 experience.

‘Medical Monday’ proves to be a lifesaver for attendee

During the March 2015 program, Krinka listened as presenter Jan Campbell, director of the Acute Rehabilitation Unit (ARU) at Reid Health, talked about stroke. “She described the signs and symptoms and explained what to do if you think you are having stroke,” Krinka recalled. Two months later, that information would prove to be lifesaving. 

Cancer patient among first in U.S. to receive new treatment

When John Straszheim and his family were told by an Ohio health care system that all options were exhausted for treating his cancer, he was given three months to a year to live. The Preble County, Ohio, family had begun thinking about hospice. But a decision to go to the nearby Reid Health Cancer Center for any remaining care proved life-saving -- thanks to what the family sees as a “miraculous” series of circumstances resulting in Straszheim becoming one of the first patients in the United States to be treated with a new immunotherapy shortly after it was approved by the Food and Drug Administration.
