Donna Johnson’s husband, Alfred, was a long time Cardiac Rehab patient at Iowa Specialty Hospital in Clarion. He became very close to not only staff, but many of the patients as he was always willing to share his experiences to give someone else a boost after their cardiac events; and tell them a joke or two with a smile.
The Cardiac Rehab Department was able to purchase both a Health-O-Meter digital scale and a Welch Allyn Blood Pressure cart for their Clarion location with the donation from the Johnson family.
“I’m very glad we could donate towards something that would benefit the hospital,” said Donna.
“We appreciate Donna’s generous gift in memory of Alfred,” commented Beth Jackson, Cardiac Rehab Department Leader. “These are resources we will be able to use every day with our rehab patients!”
