Scottish nationals return to Rockford and take time to say “thanks” to caregivers after traumatic injury.
It’s not unusual for a patient to express appreciation to medical staff for the care they receive. But it IS a pleasant surprise when a citizen of a foreign country makes a surprise return visit today to do just that! Dr. Jeffrey Earhart and Dr. Brian Foster of OrthoIllinois were part of the team that provided emergency care to Gordon Wiseman after he was taken to OSF Saint Anthony Medical Center following a traumatic auto accident he and colleague Phil Boyle experienced while in Rockford for a business meeting at Woodward Governor in August 2014. Dr. Foster was on hand today to join OSF emergency department and critical care unit medical staff to meet with Gordon and Phil when they took the time to visit the hospital while back in Rockford to say “thank you” to Gordon’s caregivers. The physicians and staff were very appreciative to see in person how well Gordon has recovered from his injuries.
