When the owners of Pleasant Valley Construction Company, Barbara and Gino Faciana, learned about a volunteer staffed program called the Comfort Cart, they knew that they and their generous staff could make a meaningful impact in the lives of Summa Health patients. The Comfort Cart provides patients and visitors at Summa Health with free personal care and other travel-size items. Mrs. Faciana, a member of the Summa Health board of directors, worked with the construction company’s office administrator to give employees the chance to contribute.
“Small items can offer an emotional lift during a stressful time,” Mrs. Faciana said about their involvement. “Our staff was happy to be able to give patients and their families some normalcy and enjoyment during their hospital stay.”
