When our patients received cards made by the patients at Cardinal Hill Rehabilitation Hospital, we knew we wanted to continue to pay it forward. We created a card making station and incorporated it into therapy, and are proud to say our patients have created more than 30 cards to send to patients at Encompass Health Franklin. That hospital has already agreed to continue the chain. We are excited to see where this goes!
