St. Johnís CEO Bill Patten and Robert OíRourke, OT and Manager of the Respiratory Therapy Department at St. Johnís, honored Red Munsel for his dedication and contribution to one of the newer programs at the hospital.

ďRed was the first patient to go though the Pulmonary Rehabilitation program when it started in April of 2006,Ē said OíRourke. ďHe enjoyed the class and the people so much that after graduating in July, Red volunteered to help out with the class on a regular basis. He has volunteered approximately 200 hours of his time to the program. Red keeps track of and records patientís blood pressures, heart rate, perceived exertion, and blood sugars. He also participates in the strength training, and keeps everyone entertained with his humor and stories.Ē

The Pulmonary Rehabilitation Program at St. Johnís is a multi-disciplinary program of care for patients with chronic respiratory impairment. The program is individually tailored and designed to optimize physical and social performance and independence of individuals with Chronic Respiratory Diseases such as Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD), Emphysema, Chronic Bronchitis, Pulmonary Fibrosis, Asbestos Related Disease, and other conditions. For information call St. Johnís Respiratory Department at 293-0179.
