Llanview’s local psychiatric facility, St. Ann’s, is getting a lot of airplay as of late, along with a new staff member! Former As the World Turns actress Joanna Rhinehart will make her way to Llanview and appear as Sister Caroline on February 7, 2008!

Aside from her 1995 to 1999 stint on As The World Turns as Jessica Griffin, Joanna has appeared in several primetime hits including Law and Order, Hack, Third Watch, The Cosby Show and most recently as Susan Marsden on Damages.

Although this isn’t a contract role for Joanna, we still want to welcome her to the show and wish her character luck – as she’s bound to need it within the four walls of St. Ann’s, especially while Allison Perkins is a resident there!
