Our conversation today was all about celebrations. It's part of our community health partnership with Valley Health where we talk each month with administrators, physicians, and other Valley Health staff about health topics, events, and the community.

This month we talked with Jennifer Coello: Vice President, Operations and Administrator for Warren Memorial Hospital and Mary Presley: Director of Rehabilitative Services for Warren Memorial Hospital. The pair gave all the details for two events that will celebrate the one year anniversary of the new Warren Memorial Hospital campus on June 25, 2021.

The day will kick off at 7am with the 5k Hills to Wellness run with all proceeds to benefit the Warren Memorial Hospital Foundation. These funds will help offset costs for those in need of physical therapy equipment or access to care for disabilities. Mary explained that this is a timed race and will be managed by Shenandoah Valley Runners. There will be medals for the top 3 finishers in each 10-year age group. All runners will receive race t-shirts and gift bags. The registration fee is $30 with a discount to Shenandoah Valley Runners. Course details & registration can be done here: Registration will also be available the morning of the race. It will start at the new campus located at 351 Valley Health Way in Front Royal.

Jennifer filled us in on all the activities that will be available from 11am - 2pm during their one-year anniversary celebration. There will be booths and stations setup to learn more about the services offered at your community hospital, check in on your own health and wellness and enjoy some family fun for everyone! It will feature:
