It's a Cardiac Rehab Celebration

The Cardiac Rehab Department at Ascension Standish Hospital knows how to make patients feel special. On Thursday, March 18, 2021 a surprise birthday celebration for community member Al Gulvas took place. Mr. Gulvas not only turned 80 years old two days later but completed 1,316 therapy visits over the course of his lifetime with our Cardiac Rehab team. Photos were shared with his daughters and they said “it brought tears to their eyes to see the hospital do something so special for their father after he lost his wife and their mother recently”. 


Cardiac Rehab associate Rita Backus made sure Al’s favorite therapy friends were there to celebrate Mr. Gulvas with cupcakes, balloons and a poster made special for him to take home and hang in his ever so loved barn on the farm.
