How Doctors Hospital of Sarasota Reunited Sisters
It was an unlikely reunion story of sisters – two staff members! – at HCA Healthcare affiliate Doctors Hospital of Sarasota. Separated in South Korea nearly four decades ago, Meagan Hughes, a physical therapy assistant, and Holly Hoyle O’Brien, a nursing assistant, were reunited on the fourth floor of the hospital earlier this year. At the time, the siblings weren’t aware of their connection until similarities in their history kept emerging. Orphaned. South Korea. Same maiden name – “Shin.” Meagan and Holly spent more time together during-and-after work, compared notes and ultimately decided to take a DNA test. The test confirmed their suspicions this summer – sisters! And the rest, as they say, is history.
