Outstanding Pediatric Neurology Care at Swedish

May 11, 2015 Ednea A Simon, MD

On Jackson Sullivan’s third day of life, his parents learned that their tiny son had suffered a stroke.  Dr. Ednea Simon, a pediatric neurologist, took charge of the struggling newborn’s care during his month-long stay at Swedish. Dr. Simon closely monitored Jackson’s progress and became more optimistic as each day passed.

Today, Jackson is 2 years old and learning to walk despite a neuromuscular disorder. His mother, Alisa Bacon-Sullivan, credits Dr. Simon’s “positive energy” and continuing expert care for Jackson’s gains.  “Dr. Simon has been amazing,” Alisa says.

Watch this video about Jackson’s journey and how Dr. Simon has made a powerful difference in his young life.
