Vanguard MacNeal's Center for Advanced Spine & Joint Care invites former patients to attend a complimentary patient reunion luncheon to celebrate their success and to thank them for choosing Vanguard MacNeal. The reunion also created a unique opportunity by providing patients with a chance to catch up with former Spine and Joint program participants. Several nurses, doctors and therapists also attended to learn more about the patient experience. In addition, it was an opportunity to collect feedback, measure success and make program improvements. Three events were held last year with more than 50 attendees.
