Two events this week reminded us of the good work that the folks at Baptist Memorial Hospital-Union County do in outreach programs in our community.
On Monday the hospital conducted its annual Baby Fair, with lots of information, vendors, gifts and refreshments in the hospital lobby.
Parents and prospective parents could find out just about anything they needed to know from the groups represented.
More than 200 people turned out for this annual event, which the hospital has been doing for more than a decade.
Then a day later, the hospital staff offered free health screenings at the Baptist Healthplex on Fairfield Drive. Blood pressure, glucose, cholesterol, height, weight and body mass index measurements were made.
In addition, information about stroke prevention and gifts and refreshments rounded out the nearly day-long event.
Much planning and effort go into events such as the Baby Fair and the free health screenings projects. They don’t just happen; they are hard work for a lot of hospital staff members.
These are the kinds of events that make a non-profit hospital such as Baptist such a vital part of a community. We have said many times show fortunate we are to have a non-profit hospital rather than a private facility focused on profits.
We offer a community thank-you for the community outreach programs and the for the quality employees of our hospital who have a strong commitment to our community’s health.
