East Jefferson General Hospital

With a generous heart and an upbeat attitude, our Volunteer of the Month for March is none other than Cardiac Rehab’s very own Danny Albert.

Albert continuously provides excellent support for the Cardiac Rehab program, serving as a reliable volunteer who is always willing to work extra days or hours if needed by his patients. Working primarily with post-cardiac care patients, Albert helps others feel more comfortable and at-ease during their rehabilitation journey.
