Joann exemplifies the special impact Hospital Heroes can have on their patients every day.
A young family was driving through Nebraska when their daughter became ill, and required immediate surgery. Afterward, the family was pleased with all the care their daughter received, but they had been especially touched by Joann Hain.
Unbeknownst to everyone else, Joann made sure the family had what they needed: she took them to the local grocery store and bought them pizza, all at her own expense.
Joann is an excellent example of hospital staff going above and beyond for patients and their families. Thank you for your kindness, Joann!
I just want to let it be known what she has done and to say thank you.
