“Right after I came out of a coma, I never thought I could actually walk out like this. But I walked out today.”

After Five Months, a COVID Patient Goes Home

To a rapturous applause from hospital staff, Daniel Kim stood up and walked out of St. Jude Medical Center, feeling lucky to be alive.

The 49-year-old was hospitalized after contracting COVID-19. He spent five months there, the longest ever for a coronavirus patient at St. Jude, and two of those months on a ventilator.

Daniel was not alone throughout his journey. Doctors, nurses and therapists were by his side, as well as his sister Julie, who is a registered nurse at St. Jude Medical Center.

See Daniel’s story covered by REUTERS on Yahoo! News.

St. Jude’s Post-COVID Recovery Program draws upon the same expertise that has made the hospital a national leader in areas from cognitive recovery and chronic pain to cancer rehabilitation. “We don’t know of another program in the state that offers this level of comprehensiveness and innovation,” explains Dr. Covarrubias-Eckardt.
