Karen's Story

"It brought my life back. I have no idea where I'd be if I hadn't done it."

Last summer, Karen tried to climb Bald Mountain in Rangeley, a peak she had scaled numerous times in the past. But her painful knees kept her from reaching the summit, and she found herself retreating in agony.

Six months after double knee replacement at the Mid Coast Center for Joint Replacement, she returned for another climb to the top.

Karen shares her total joint replacement experience, praising the providers of Mid Coast Medical Group–Orthopedics and the outstanding care she received at Mid Coast Hospital and Mid Coast Hospital Rehabilitation.

Sally & Fred's Story

"We take care of each other in every way."

Sally was diagnosed with amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) in late 2017, a debilitating disease that leads to difficulty speaking, swallowing, and breathing.

In addition to continuous support from Fred, her devoted husband of 54 years, her primary care provider, and the team at Mid Coast Medical Group–Neurology, Sally also began taking part in Mid Coast Hospital’s ALS Clinic, the first ALS Association-affiliated clinic in Maine. The clinic connects Sally to all the resources she needs in one place.

Speaking on Sally’s behalf, Fred talks about their journey and the importance of caring for one another, always.
