Rehabilitation patients at Saint Joseph Hospital, including total joint replacement patients, are now able to practice getting in and out of a vehicle before traveling home — which is one of the first obstacles patients face after surgery.

“We believe this is the first time Toyota worldwide has taken on such a project,” said Leslie Smart, CFRE, president, Saint Joseph Hospital Foundations. “This is one of the tangible ways Toyota is helping to make mobility a reality for many across the region.”

The modified Camry was assembled at the Georgetown plant and reassembled on-site last December inside the hospital.

“We know that mobility — the ability to walk, to take care of yourself — is one of the keys to good health,” said Tony Houston, CEO, CHI Saint Joseph Health, and president, Saint Joseph Hospital. “We’ve had the car available for several months now, and our patients have loved it.”
