Doctor wanted father and daughter to be together on wedding day

The clinical team caring for a 66-year-old stroke patient in the Inpatient Rehabilitation Center at Medical City Dallas hosted a wedding reception for his daughter on February 14.

The idea originated from James Bales' physician, Dr. Alberto Lin, Medical Director of the Rehabilitation Institute at Medical City Dallas, after he learned that James would be unable to attend his daughter’s wedding. Dr. Lin and James’ nurses organized the wedding reception, which family members and Medical City Dallas colleagues attended.
