Wanda - National Tai Chi Champ
Local resident and college professor Wanda Hall is a national tai chi champion
-- and also a successful joint replacement patient. After having both
knees replaced at Flagler Hospital, Wanda is still going strong.
"I have always been an active person. I enjoy swimming, yoga, dancing
and tai chi. Slowly my life had shut down with pain in both my knees.
Now I have my life back."
"From the moment I entered the doors of Flagler Hospital until they
sent me on my way, it was an amazing journey of personalized, professional,
"I want to take an opportunity to thank all who worked so hard to
give me my life back. Starting with the instructors at my pre-education
class, through the day of surgery when my transporter made me laugh at
6am, to the operating staff who spent time getting to know me, and Dr.
Grimes who always answered all my questions with a calm confidence. The
patient caterers provided great food; nursing staff, aids, housekeepers
and physical therapists were all great. Even my room was beautiful with
a view of a lovely garden."
