Peyton Manning Children's Hospital at Ascension St. Vincent
COVID-19 survivor discharged after 6 months
After 175 days of hospitalization for COVID-19, 160 of those spent on a ventilator, Wesley was discharged to begin rehab. During his stay at Peyton Manning Children's Hospital at Ascension St. Vincent, the 16-year-old had 12 caregivers in and out of his room daily, representing about seven specialties. He also received approximately 233 hours of physical and occupational therapy. The teen kept up with his education through the hospital school program. Wesley said he was so grateful for the many clinicians who cared for him that he plans to become a respiratory therapist and then obtain a nursing degree.
