Curious about My Care
After surviving three open-heart surgeries in three weeks, Cody Edwards could not help but look back and wonder just what had happened. With pages and pictures from reference books, and copies of his surgical reports, he assembled a "therapy book" to bring to his surgeons for further explanation. The time they spent together poring over the materials helped him understand why he was still alive—and why he chose Hennepin County Medical Center. At HCMC, where the care and conversations are centered around him, Cody can be curious. He can ask questions and find the answers he needs to fully participate in his own care. "At HCMC the staff dealt with more than just the problem I came in with," Cody said. "They dealt with the whole person."
