A piano in a hospital

By Kelley Luckstein

Lee Aase from Mayo Clinic shared an interesting story with us at the recent Reshape 2009 event in the Netherlands. They placed a piano in the lobby of the hospital and an old couple showed their talent.

 

The video became a viral one and now has more than 4 million visits. A few weeks later, the couple appeared in many US TV shows as well.

 

Lee described in his slideshow that it cost around $75 to make this happen but bringing the joy to the world through music is priceless. Great example how hospitals can reach patients via social media.
