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.
