Siskin Hospital Celebrates National Rehabilitation Week With A TV Land Theme

Monday, September 11, 2017

Siskin Hospital is celebrating National Rehabilitation Week Sept. 11-15 with a hospital-wide theme of “Journey thru TV Land.” 
 
"Chattanooga is a fun-loving city and Siskin Hospital is filled with fun-loving people who do serious work for our community. This week, we celebrate the Siskin Hospital mission and 27 years of serving Chattanooga with a 'Journey thru T.V. Land.' Each department in the hospital is decorated as a different network, TV show, or TV character. For example, Marketing is “Animal Planet,” HR is “Hallmark Channel,” Inpatient Therapy is “Superheroes Cartoons,” and many more," officials said. "National Rehabilitation Week is an opportunity for Siskin Hospital to celebrate the field we work in, to educate others and ourselves about this field, and to recognize the many individuals whose lives have been touched by physical medicine and rehabilitation."
