March Food Drive

Hutchinson Health’s March Food Drive has been so successful we have had to add an extra table. Shout out to our staff and patients/visitors for helping us collect so many items. Let’s see if we can double this in the last week of this drive. Bring in items to the Clinic and Hospital entrance. Healthy items encouraged and Hutchinson Health is matching the pounds in dollars up to $500.

Wellness Champions at Hutchinson Health

Hutchinson Health Wellness Champions, employees helping employees engage in wellness initiatives, is a new program for us.

Wellness champions, Karen Gensmer and Julie Juaire, teamed up to present “From Seed to Table” to HH employees on Monday. Karen provided recipes and a tasting demo on supertators and Julie distributed the seed potatoes. Employee response and participation was amazing! Look for this pair to demo and educate on herbs and spices next month.

The Wellness Center area is located in the back of the HH Cafeteria if you would like any additional information.
