Hospital happenings

Shandra Harcarik

When her ATV malfunctioned and drove backwards off a hillside, Shandra Harcarik was found unconscious pinned against a tree with the ATV on top of her.  She arrived at Encompass Health Sewickly to begin her recovery from multiple surgeries and a brain injury. She was unable to walk or transfer on her own and was in severe pain. Her goal was to be able to get back to her job, family and independence.

Upon her discharge, Shandra had made huge strides on achieving these goals.  “After many weeks there these folks brought me back to life,” she said. “There is no better acute rehab in Pittsburgh. The therapists are amazing and I received VIP treatment from everyone. Encompass Health Sewickley has amazing staff and they gave me my life back.”  Congratulations on your discharge, Shandra. We wish you the best of luck on your continued recovery!
