McLean’s outpatient physical therapists are often surprised with gifts of brownies and cookies from their patients after they “graduate” from their therapy programs. Granby resident Eileen Kopf-Walker, however, surprised her therapist Dorothy Villano, by showing up for her final therapy appointment in a graduation gown…this was a first for McLean’s outpatient therapy program!

Eileen, who had been receiving outpatient therapy since February for knee and hip pain, said that her pain was “much, much better now, thanks to Dorothy and McLean.” Needless to say, Eileen received a lot of attention, smiles and congratulations on her final “Rehab Graduation Day” at McLean.
