News

SOLON, Ohio (WJW) — One Cleveland Clinic doctor went going home on Tuesday following a heart transplant.

Friends and family the line of the side of the road to honor the man who has done so much for others, working as a doctor at the Clinic for 30 years.

Before coming home, Dr. Rick Wilson, who’d suffered a severe heart attack two months ago, stopped at the Solon Cleveland Clinic to say hello to colleagues there.

“He’s been counting the days, the weeks. It’s been rough, sometimes not knowing how this would end. He is so looking forward to being home,” said Dr. Debbie Ewing-Wilson, his wife.

During the time of coronavirus, many celebrations and large life events have had to be socially distanced. That includes birthdays, anniversaries, graduations and even homecomings.

“The outpouring of love from our friends, our family, my own institution at University Hospitals, everyone has been so compassionate, so kind,” Ewing-Wilson said.
