Staff from Geisinger Wyoming Valley Medical Center (GWV) recently presented St. John the Evangelist Church in Pittston with an automated external defibrillator (AED). Several years ago, the AED at St. John’s was stolen and this donation replaces the life-saving device at the parish. Geisinger staff will also hold classes to educate parishioners on using the AED and administering CPR. GWV is completing the process for accreditation as a Chest Pain Center, which recognizes Geisinger’s involvement in promoting proper heart health and emergency response in local communities. At the presentation, from left: Kathy Zipay, Level One Heart Attack coordinator, GWV; Jack Lasky, EMS coordinator, GWV; Monsignor John J. Bendik, pastor, St. John the Evangelist Church; John Zelonis, associate vice president, Richard and Marion Pearsall Heart Hospital, GWV.
