April 24, 2012

PUNXSUTAWNEY — Monday, Punxsutawney Area Hospital received a generous donation in the form of 12 brand-new television sets, six of which will be placed in the hospital’s short procedure unit.

Five of the TVs will go in the intensive care unit, and a 37-inch big-screen TV will be placed in the front lobby.

The televisions were donated by the John Jacob Fisher American Legion Post 62.

The idea for the televisions came from Cathy Bair, who was in short procedure for the second time when she thought that it would be nice if there had been some TVs in the room.
