I had a knee replacement at St. Joe's and was taken to your facility. From the moment I arrived, I felt very welcome and was taken care of like everyone was family to me. Thank you for all the care and love I received from your wonderful facility.

I want to thank all of you for the VIP treatment you gave me—you all deserve a big 10! Thanks to you, I will be in Florida with my grandchildren and the rest of my family for Christmas.
