Capital Regional Announces Spirit of Women Partnership
February 03, 2011
Capital Regional Medical Center announces it has joined Spirit of Women, an integrated partnership of hospitals and healthcare systems across the country that aim to drive health action for women and their families. Spirit of Women enables Capital Regional Medical Center to continue to focus on the specific needs of the local community while drawing on the strength and support of a national network.
“Capital Regional Medical Center is proud to be the only healthcare facility in the Tallahassee area to be part of Spirit of Women,” said Bud Wethington, President and CEO of Capital Regional Medical Center. .
“With our state-of-the-art Family Center and brand-new Comprehensive Breast Center, Capital Regional has always prioritized women’s health highly,” says Marie Johnson, Chief Nursing Officer at Capital Regional Medical Center. “Our partnership with Spirit of Women allows us to take this priority to the next level by providing unique resources to the women in our community to empower them to lead their healthiest life.”
As a Spirit of Women hospital, Capital Regional Medical Center has committed itself to a comprehensive list of National Standards for Excellence in Women’s Health. Because women make up to 85 percent of household healthcare decisions, the educational and motivational Spirit of Women efforts are expected to positively impact the well-being of the entire family and community as a whole.
Capital Regional Medical Center’s inaugural Spirit of Women event, Day of Dance for Your Health, will take place on Saturday, February 26 from 11 a.m. – 4 p.m. at Kleman Plaza. The event is free to the community and will introduce women and their families to fun ways to stay healthy, with exciting dance performances, dance instruction, educational cooking demonstrations, a wine tasting, health screenings and a kid’s activity zone.
