Patient testimonial

Thad Stappenbeck

Meet Thad and Mary. When Thad developed complications due to COVID-19, he was nervous about being one of the first patients in the Hospital at Home program at UMass Memorial Health. But he was even more concerned about having to stay in the hospital and away from his wife, Mary.

“This is AMAZING, the fact that I can be home, self quarantine, and feel safe as my vitals are monitored…It allows me to be in the comfort of my home and family; and my dogs. And that’s what really helps with recovery.”
