• With one knee replacement done, Rome Memorial Hospital maintenance worker can’t wait for Dr. Oda to replace the other

    Nick Sestito has worked in the Plant Operations department at Rome Memorial Hospital for 20 years. His work requires a lot of climbing ladders and squatting down to make repairs to everything from air conditioner units to mechanical hospital beds, but pain in his left knee had gotten so bad he had difficulty doing his job. Last October, Nick more than willingly became an occupant of one of those hospital beds when he had a total knee replacement performed by Dr. Ninos Oda at Rome Memorial Hospital.

Just three years out of nursing school, Mary Ann also started a new job in Rome as a registered nurse in the Intensive Care Unit (ICU) at Rome Memorial Hospital. Forty years later, she is still working there, caring for the people of a community she now calls home.
