Geisinger becomes the first member of Risant Health

Most patients recovering from multiple cardiac events and a string of heart surgeries might slow down a bit, perhaps take it a little easy. Not 82-year-old Orangeville native and Korean War vet Ned Lowe. After graduating from Bloomsburg Hospital’s first cardiac rehab class back in 1985, Ned’s heart health was back on track. He was able to continue his career as a delivery truck driver, ultimately receiving what he calls one of the greatest accomplishments of his life: the award for Pennsylvania truck driver of the year. He has since retired after an impressive 2.5 million miles of safe driving. And even though it’s been 30 years since he completed the cardiac rehab program, Ned still keeps in touch with the staff members who cared for him all those years ago. “He always stops in to say ‘hi’ to us,” says registered nurse Madye Dellegrotti. “Ned is a great role model for cardiac rehab and an admirable man. He worked hard for his recovery.” #GeisingerStories #GeisingerCaring
