Community Hospital rehabilitation unit celebrates first year
Monterey Herald

Andrew Sujan had never been to the hospital as an adult, until a tooth infection this summer forced him into the emergency room at Community Hospital of the Monterey Peninsula.

The infection soon spread to his jaw, neck and bloodstream. Two weeks of treatment in the intensive care unit cleared the infection, but other damage had been done. Sujan could not swallow, speak or walk. That was when he first heard of the hospital’s Inpatient Rehabilitation Unit.
