Patient Stories

Rather than "invent" patients and testimonial stories for our public-awareness campaign material, Olmsted Medical Center caregivers sought out patients who were willing to share their OMC experiences.

The words in each of these stories are that patient's words; the experience those words relate are that patient's honest experience at OMC. Each contributing patient was consulted at multiple steps during the development of this material to make sure our presentation of each story was authentic and realistic.
