JCMC Cardiac Rehab has a little Halloween fun

At cardiac rehab, Hank decides to set a very bad example.JOHNSON CITY, Tenn. – The team members at Johnson City Medical Center Cardiac Rehab took a serious subject and found a way to have a little Halloween fun with it.


Amanda Finley, RN, brought in her skeleton friend, “Hank,” to the department, located at The Wellness Center, and set him up at a table where visitors can see him. Hank is helping to get across an important message while getting a few laughs – even though his outlook is grim.


“My friend Hank was telling me he had a heart attack and is having trouble breathing,” Amanda said. “So I told him he needed cardiac rehab, and away we went. I’ve taught him healthy lifestyle changes, but he won’t comply. Just wants to sit and smoke. I think his poor health decisions are about to catch up with him.”
