Hospital happenings

John Lillie

John Lillie, a truck driver in Ocala, felt left side weakness while working in Missouri. He was able to call 911 and spent two weeks at a hospital in Missouri. His care team suggested rehabilitation at a local facility, but John wanted to return home to Ocala and be close to his family.

With the help of Encompass Health Ocala liaisons Lynndsey Blackwell and Shajuana Williams, John was able to fly home and begin his stroke recovery with our stroke certified physical therapist, Expedito Kallos. What a great job, Encompass Health Ocala team!
