Exceptional Care, Exceptionally Close. I literally walked out of Warren General Hospital just hours after I hobbled in, much thanks to Dr. Simon Amsdell and the orthopedic sports medicine staff and team at WGH. My outcome was every bit as great as the personal care and attention they provided me. It was truly exceptional! We are blessed to have skilled physicians like Dr. Simon Amsdell, right here in Warren, Pennsylvania. It makes me very proud of our hometown hospital!

What About Bob? That question may remind movie goers of the 1991 American black comedy starring Bill Murray and Richard Dreyfuss.
