The Service League provides funding for the purchase of Heart Pillows for Advocate Lutheran General Hospital's Cardiac Department. The Heart Pillow is ideal for surgery patients as well as patients undergoing non-invasive procedures.
Heart patients benefit from:
- Uniform, effective support to aid in healing
- Pain reduction during coughing, deep breathing and moving about
- Positive emotional support, establishing a connection with each patient on an emotional level that comes with knowing the commitment to providing the highest level of care and how much Advocate Lutheran General Hospital, its doctors and nurses, and the Service League care toward patient medical treatment
- Diagrams act as convenient bedside patient and family educational tools
After patients leave Lutheran General Hospital, each pillow also serves as an effective marketing tool. Not only do our patients benefit from the therapeutic advantages of our pillows, they also take home a gentile, lasting reminder of the special care they received during their stay.
