Fauquier Health Makes the Big Time

Fauquier Health made an appearance on the local FOX News station this morning. The TV network shot in the lobby of the hospital from about 6:30 a.m. to almost 9:00 a.m.

Making a big impression were the Pet Therapy dogs of Fauquier Hospital. About nine were on the makeshift "set" and Jamie, a Dalmatian, visited a patient room on camera. Sheryl Vollrath proudly told the TV audience about the Pet Therapy program.

Lisa Spitzer, Fauquier Health's concierge and Linda Sharkey, vice president of Patient Care, represented Fauquier Health well, speaking about our Planetree initiatives and patient-centered care.

Hunter Payne, a loyal volunteer, played the piano in the lobby and hot chocolate chip cookies brightened the scene -- and fed the crew.
