What Was Carolyn Prah's Toughest Battle?

Carolyn Prah made it through military training and a deployment to Afghanistan.  But her toughest battle came five days before her dream wedding.  Emergency abdominal surgery at Excela Health, where the overall hospital care for patient safety ranks in the nation's top 10%.  But here's the real headline: No one in Western PA ranks higher.*  The result: her battle won with "I do's" exchanged, just as planned.  Now Carolyn is the #PictureofHealth.
