I am shocked and saddened by the passing of world-renowned orthopedic surgeon and physical therapist Dr. Jacquelin Perry, MD. Dr. Perry was the “Guardian Angel” for Rancho Los Amigos. She revolutionized orthopedic medicine and rehab therapy over the course of her incredible medical career, while giving hope and opportunity for recovery to every patient she treated.
Dr. Perry was an expert in Polio and post-Polio recovery, inspiring Rancho patients to overcome this crippling disease and go on to live normal lives. She was also a critical part of the foundation that built Ranch Los Amigos into the hospital of miracles it is today. Dr. Perry left a remarkable legacy on Rancho, including the Jacquelin Perry Neuro-Trauma Institute and Rehabilitation Center, where many patients begin their journey to recovery. My thoughts and prayers are with Dr. Perry’s family and friends. She will truly be missed.
