Jack’s Story

We arrived at Nationwide after a horrendous 9 months fighting a MRSA infection from a baclofen pump revision in St. Louis. We came to Nationwide Children’s to be treated by Dr. Leonard, Chief of Neurosurgery, who was formerly Jack’s neurosurgeon prior to this last pump revision. Dr. Leonard saved Jack’s life, ultimately advising to remove the pump altogether, after a rough fight to keep it. We are forever thankful to him.

The hospital was beautiful and the staff was compassionate. We wish it was our hospital here in St. Louis!
