On Wednesday, Feb. 13, staff from Geisinger Wyoming Valley Medical Center (GWV) presented St. John the Evangelist Church in Pittston with an automated external defibrillator (AED). Several years ago, the AED at Pastor St. John‚??s was stolen, and this donation replaces the life-saving device at the parish. Geisinger staff will also hold classes to educate parishioners on using the AED and administering CPR. GWV is an accredited Chest Pain Center, which recognizes Geisinger‚??s involvement in promoting proper heart health and emergency response in local communities.
