St. Joseph and Redwood Memorial Hospitals' Annual Health, Wellness
and Resource Fair
Since its inception over 20 years ago, the Annual Health, Wellness and
Resource Fair has given many members of our community the opportunity
to access much needed health screenings and education. In an effort to
expand our reach into the community by further investing in population
health strategies, we have decided to redesign and reallocate our efforts
for the annual Health, Wellness and Resource Fair and will no longer host
the health fair at the Bayshore Mall.
Our goal is to continue to provide free preventative health screenings
and educational events throughout the North Coast. Instead of relying
on just one location to deliver these services, future community clinical
outreach opportunities will now be channeled through a variety of intimate
community settings like our county-wide community resource centers and
other venues meant to better deliver services to the county’s most
vulnerable where they live, work and play.
This evolution of our community outreach directly aligns with our organizational
mission and will allow bed-side caregivers the opportunity to step out
into the community and serve alongside our community based caregivers
while bringing valuable clinical knowledge to vulnerable populations.
These nurse led community outreach events will occur multiple times throughout
the year instead of a one day only event as in previous health fairs.
Additionally, our popular community health forums will not only feature
informative physician led specialty service line presentations, but will
incorporate many of the popular health screenings found in previous health
fairs like distribution of blood draw coupons, body fat testing, blood
pressure screenings and much more.
Rest assured, we are as committed as ever to extend a healing hand to our
dear neighbor and fulfill our organizational promise to the community
– “Know me, care for me, ease my way.” Our commitment
to and love for this community have helped shape us into a premier health
care facility and it will sustain us as we continue to evolve with the
new health care landscape.
Please stay tuned for upcoming information on dates, locations and services
offered as part of our new community clinical outreach approach!
