Hospitals Promote Good Health, Generosity as The Holidays Kick Off

Marianne Aiello, for HealthLeaders Media , December 4, 2013

For completing one health screening per year, a member receives a discount card that provides 5% off on unlimited purchases at 55 area businesses. Completing a second health screening in the year gets you 10% off unlimited purchases.

"As a trusted healthcare partner with exceptional services for women, I Matter is our way of adding extra value to the most valuable asset of all, your good health and the great life that comes with it," said Marci Vasiliades, manager of the Silver Cross Center for Women's Health, in a press release.

The I Matter program has its own interactive microsite detailing the campaign's benefits as well as lots of valuable health and screening information. This program is an inventive way to help patients become more proactive in their healthcare while also lowering holiday shopping bills.

'Food fight' for needy families

Last week, two Oregon hospitals partnered with a local food bank to start a friendly competition for a food drive campaign.

Columbia Memorial Hospital in Astoria and Providence Seaside Hospital in nearby Seaside each set up several locations in their communities to collect donated food. The competition runs on a point-based system:

  • 10 points each for items such as canned meats, boxed cereal, cooking oil, Bisquick baking mix, coffee, chili and beef stew, large soups with meat, condiments, peanut butter, jam, or jelly.
  • 5 points each for items such as cocoa and hot chocolate, instant oatmeal, canned fruit, dried fruit, apple sauce, hamburger helper and tuna helper, Rice-a-Roni, macaroni and cheese, pancake mix, sugar, maple syrup, bottled juice, and canned vegetables.
  • 1 point each for items such as Jell-O, canned spaghetti sauce, Stove Top stuffing mix, instant mashed potatoes, and cake mix.
