Healthcare Finance and Revenue Cycle Professionals Don’t Have to Scale Tall Buildings and Fly at Supersonic Speeds to Have an Impact Like a Superhero!

healthcare-superheroesHealthcare finance and revenue cycle professionals should feel like superheros. We don’t have to put on a costume and wash windows on tall buildings to have an incredible impact on the people in our communities.

I came across this article on the My Modern Met website. This story was one I felt I had to pass along and share. With all of the negative messages we read, see and hear about on a daily basis, it’s refreshing to see story about positive, caring people going out of their way to bring happiness to sick children. If we all could adopt that same spirit, how would that change our world?

Here is an excerpt from the article:

Nobody likes to be in the hospital. It’s just not that much fun, especially if the stay is a lengthy one. Three window washers took on the challenge of bringing smiles to every patient’s face at Le Bonheur Children’s Hospital in Memphis, Tennessee.

According to the news, word quickly spread that there were superheroes descending outside the building, and adults and children alike gathered to wait for Spider-Man or Captain America to appear. The three men behind the exciting surprise were Steve Oszaniec, his son Danny Oszaniec and Jordan Emerson, who all work for commercial window cleaning company, American National Skyline. (Two donned Spider-Man outfits and one wore the Captain America costume.)

The men spent four hours visiting windows and spraying silly string at the kids, who, for a brief while, were able to forget about their troubles and just enjoy themselves. According to hospital spokeswoman Sara Burnett, this kind of distraction therapy really helps kids heal because they are able to get their minds off of the pain. Oszaniec says, “We just went there, put them [the costumes] on and went up. They [hospital staff] brought a lot of the kids to the little family room there so they could see us. It was unbelievable. They just totally forgot they were sick for a minute. They were just ecstatic about it.

Here is a photo of two of the children in their room looking out at Spiderman!
