"Are there two perfectly good hospitals near me? Yes. Was it worth traveling to Carolina Pines for surgery? ​Positively."

In trying to break a fall, Karen Leatherman broke her wrist instead and received treatment locally. Still in pain weeks later, she took her sister’s advice and drove to Carolina Pines Regional Medical Center, where Dr. Prashant Deshmane discovered a torn rotator cuff. “He explained everything in detail, even drew a diagram for me. It gave me a sense of confidence,” Karen said. Two days later, she had the surgery, and is now finishing rehab. An exercise physiologist, Karen credits Jimmy Sease, director of physical therapy for keeping her on track—and for allowing her to do some sessions at the fitness center she owns in Florence. Karen passed two hometown hospitals to get to Carolina Pines—because the extra 30-mile drive was worth it to her and to her shoulder.
