“We are inviting residents from the area to join us on Saturday, June 25, as we celebrate our first year anniversary of moving into the new medical center,” announced Bill Sexton, Chief Executive Officer at Crossing Rivers Health. The celebration starts early in the morning as a Legacy 5K Run/Walk will take participants from the former hospital site to our new location. The Run/Walk begins at 8:00 a.m. with a shot gun start. Activities at the clinic and medical center start at 9:00 a.m. and continue through 1:00 p.m. A picnic lunch is available for a minimal charge from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. “We look forward to hosting this special event celebrating this milestone at Crossing Rivers Health,” Sexton added.
In addition to the Run/Walk, events include a Teddy Bear Clinic and free blood pressure checks at Crossing Rivers Health Clinic, 5-Minute Chair Massages, Interactive Health Fair, Self-Guided Tours, Birthday Party for all babies born at the medical center within the past year, and Open Houses at the Home Medical Equipment Retail Store and Jerry’s Gift Shoppe. Children and their families will also get a close-up look at Mighty Machines Heroes of Healthcare- an ambulance, police car, and firetruck. MedLink is scheduled to land if availability and weather permit.
“The Health Fair will give people the opportunity to learn about some of the 100 plus services and programs offered by our healthcare team at Crossing Rivers Health. Along with self-guided tours, community members will have the opportunity to learn more about several of our key services, including 3D Mammography, Child Care Montessori Program, Family Resource Center services, Cardiac Rehab and Physical Therapy, HME Retail Store and much more,” shared Sasha Dull, Chief Development Officer.
Dull added, “Registration for the Run/Walk will still be accepted up until 7:45 the morning of the event. Please bring your entire family and join us in commemorating the first anniversary opening of the new medical center. Full event details are available at crossingrivers.org.”
