Hospital Janitor 'Piano Man' Entertains Patients and Their Families: Video

By Robert Paul Reyes

"An Illinois hospital janitor dubbed the Piano Man said he plays the piano for patients and their families to help them forget all their worries.


Rolando Maaba, 55, a Philippines native who moved to Rockford in 1999, said he started working for the Rockford Health System`s Rockford Memorial Hospital about a year ago and he started using his 15-minute breaks to play the piano when bosses gave him their blessing."


What do you do on your break? Surf the Internet, make personal phone calls, or eat a snack. Oh, that`s what you do while on the clock, so do I!

When hospital janitor, Rolando Maaba, has a break, he doesn`t think about what he can do to relax or amuse himself, instead he plays the piano for patients and their families.

When we think about others first, it`s only then that we find contentment and fulfillment.
