Published: Wednesday, Oct. 9, 2013 10:03 a.m. CDT

Greater Regional Rehabilitation Services welcomed Jill Hoakison, DPT, to its comprehensive rehabilitation team in October.

Hoakison is originally from Moville, and her husband Caleb is originally from the Creston area.

Hoakison completed her undergraduate studies at Iowa State University and her doctorate at Creighton University in Omaha, Neb. She has previously worked at Unity Point Health-Des Moines at Lutheran, caring for patients recovering from open heart, orthopaedic and surgical procedures, as well as longer-term rehabilitation patients.

“I have the great privilege in helping others get their mobility back after a surgery or illness,” Hoakison said.“Successes such as guiding a person to take their first step after a stroke, climbing their first set of stairs after a hip or knee replacement or even sitting up at the edge of the bed after a prolonged illness make me believe that I play a role in providing others with a greater quality of life.”

To schedule an appointment with Hoakison or learn more, call 641-782-3510.
