We recently kicked off our Go Red For Women campaign in partnership with the American Heart Association! CEO Gabrielle Finley-Hazle led the hospital in celebration of heart health and the fight against heart disease.
We also hosted an event where cholesterol, glucose and blood pressure screenings were provided to employees as well as heart healthy snacks. Those who attended received fun red prizes and filled out support cards in honor of family members and friends who are battling heart disease.
Employees wore red to show their support and make a positive impact for a great cause.
