Find out why Olympic hockey great Mike Eruzione has all his orthopedic procedures performed at Melrose-Wakefield Hospital, orthopedic care which he describes as "spectacular"!

In fact, three generations of Eruziones, Mike, his father and his sons have all had orthopedic procedures performed at Melrose-Wakefield Hospital.


“The care there is spectacular,” Eruzione explains. “It’s why I keep going back.”


Mike has had a long association with Melrose-Wakefield Hospital that began when he was 12 years old, broke his nose in a youth hockey game and was taken there for care. “They were great then, and they still are,” he explains.


All of the orthopedic surgeries on the Eruziones were performed by Robert Harney, MD, a long time member of the Hallmark Health medical staff who specializes in orthopedics and sports-related injuries. He is internationally recognized in the field of sports medicine and will be on the medical staff for the 2010 Olympic/Paralympic Winter Games in Vancouver, CN.


“The Bone and Joint Program here at Melrose-Wakefield Hospital provides top notch care. All of the doctors, nurses, therapists and surgical staff work closely together as a team to get patients back on their feet and enjoying an active lifestyle,” Dr. Harney adds.


Eruzione has led a very successful path after the glory of Olympic gold. He is currently a Director of Development for his alma mater Boston University Athletics, a frequent TV hockey commentator on national, college and Olympic broadcasts and a sought-after motivational speaker and guest lecturer.


That motivation for excellence is another reason why Mike chooses Hallmark Health.


“They just do everything right,” Mike adds. “The medical staff, the nurses, the anesthesiologists; --- they all are highly skilled and take the time to listen and explain things very carefully. Every procedure my family has been involved with was well organized and very well run … and the outcomes were just great.”
