A lobster fisherman for over 65 years, Ron Pinkham started in the industry when he was only 12 years old. Now almost 80 years old, Ron completes the same demanding outdoor labor he did when he was younger.
At around the same time he started fishing, however, another long-term pattern arose in Ron's life: knee pain. After more than 60 years of knee pain, Ron finally reached out to Thomas Kryzak, MD, and the Mid Coast Center for Joint Replacement and scheduled knee replacement surgery at Mid Coast Hospital.
Since the surgery, Ron has seen an improvement in his knee pain, and says he feels good.
With the help of Mid Coast Medical Group–Women's Health Care's nationally certified nurse midwifery team, Ashley Wing gave birth to both of her sons, Eli and Owen, at Mid Coast Hospital.
Early in her pregnancy with her first son, Ashley and her husband Tyler elected to take part in CenteringPregnancy, a model of group prenatal care that combines basic prenatal health assessment, education, and social support.
Knowing that the midwives work in close collaboration with the practice's OB/GYNs helped Ashley better prepare for the birthing process. It is this caring spirit that Ashley and Tyler remember most about delivering their babies at Mid Coast Hospital.
A 9-1-1 operator for 37 years, Mike Rankins spent his career helping others navigate emergencies. In April 2018, however, Mike found himself in the middle of his own crisis.
After suffering a heart attack and receiving care at Mid Coast Hospital and Maine Medical Center, Mike was referred to begin Cardiac Rehabilitation at the Mid Coast Center for Community Health & Wellness.
A 12-week program, Cardiac Rehabilitation helped Mike to heal, lose weight, and develop a love for exercise. He has seen tremendous improvement in his overall health, no longer feels chest pain, and is grateful to hear his children say how proud they are of him.
