Advocate Health | Meet Janet – She works in central scheduling and as an animal-assisted therapy (AAT) handler at Advocate Good Shepherd Hospital with her trusty companion Dante, who was certified by Therapy Dogs International in 2013. Janet has always loved animals: “I grew up with them my whole life. I even met my husband on a horse farm. Being able to share Dante with patients and associates at Good Shepherd has deepened my relationships with all those around me.”
Janet is just one small part of a campaign we are sharing on our social media accounts every week. #IAmAdvocate – it’s the nurses by our patient’s bedside, the physicians, the volunteers at the front desk, the engineers in the basement, the pharmacists, the techs, the housekeepers, the cooks and everyone in-between. Stay tuned for more photos and stories from our associates, nurses, physicians and clinicians across our health care system.
Barrington ChiroFit | Swipe for progress pictures
If you have done an isometric 90/90 sit before you are aware of how humbling of a position it can be, especially when first getting started in it. James’ sit has improved tremendously through treatment because he does it in the office to support his chiropractic therapies as well as out of the office because he understands the importance and the need for full hip range of motion to support his healing low back. He and the rest of the patients at ChiroFit participate because they want to feel and move better, and we can help!
We will be doing ‘Murph’ on Memorial Day (Monday, May 29th). **The class times are 6:30/8/9:30am!**
Some of the @barringtonchirofit team will be there to work on anybody who needs some extra stretching!
Advocate Good Shepherd Hospital | This remarkable group is among those honored at the Advocate Good Shepherd Hospital 2017 Nursing Excellence Awards and Healthcare Partner Awards event. In all, 62 awards were distributed, underscoring the strong level of commitment and dedication with which our hospital is blessed.
