SONG: Sweet Hospital at Home

To the tune of “Sweet Home Alabama” by Lynyrd Skynyrd

Healthcare’s wheels keep on turnin’
Carried me home to see my kin
Set me up in our living room
So I got great care once again and I think it’s a win, yes

Well I heard home healthcare can be ideal
Well I heard it’s available now
Surrounded by friends and family
It promotes much better healing anyhow

Sweet hospital at home
Where the care is so true
Sweet hospital at home
Makes me feel almost brand new

In hospitals they’ve got infections (boo-hoo-hoo)
Cold sterile rooms without appeal
The food is tasteless as cardboard
Isn’t care at home a better deal?
Dontcha feel?

Sweet hospital at home
Where the care is so true
Sweet hospital at home
Makes me feel almost brand new

For great healthcare, I comin’ home

Now hospitals have big challenges
They’ve been known to make an error or two (yes they do)
At home, my nurses engage me
They pick me up when I’m feelin’ blue
Now how about you?

Sweet hospital at home
Where the care is so true
Sweet hospital at home
Makes me feel almost brand new

Sweet hospital at home (oh, sweet home)
Where the care is so true
Can be great for me and you
Sweet hospital at home (lordy)
Makes me feel almost brand new

John Zam

John is our favorite piano man, a consummate entertainer with a fabulous voice and incredible piano skills. He’s a lifelong Billy Joel enthusiast, and well-versed in the beloved piano bar repertoire from the 70s and 80s, with virtuosity in all genres: classic rock, the Beatles, Broadway, standards from the great crooners, country, and today’s hits. John entertained Chicago audiences for more than 20 years at the famed Redhead Piano Bar, other intimate entertainment spaces, luxury hotels and restaurants, and is based in Florida now. His shows are personal, he loves requests, and can make anyone feel special with a favorite song.

At 4sight Health, music is one of our cultural touchstones, an entrée into serious, even wonky concepts. As our troubadour, John brings to life David Johnson’s alternate lyrics to well-known songs. We don’t take ourselves too seriously! Listen to them all here.

John studied music at Northwestern University, and pivoted his communication degree and PR work to performance. Original artists from Billy Joel to Metallica have complimented him on his live covers of their songs and he’s been covered in the WSJ, Chicago Tribune, Chicago Sun-Times. After decades of Chicago winters, he headed south to Miami, writes original music and performs in southern Florida, with occasional appearances at his Chicago haunts.
