Pender Community Hospital to Host Health & Wellness Fair

Pender Community Hospital will host a Health & Wellness Fair for all members of our community on Wednesday, May 8th from 4:30 - 7:00 pm. During this open house, health screenings will be offered and PCH and community members will host tables touching on different health-focused topics. As part of the celebration, the mobile da Vinci robotic surgery system will be spotlighted-complete with demonstrations and an invitation for the general public to take a turn at operating the system.

"We are so excited to host this open house," says Melissa Kelly, CEO. "There will truly be something for everyone: from activities for kids, to health screenings for adults, to healthy snacks and wellness tips for the whole family. We're most excited about our da Vinci robot competition where members of the public will actually get to compete in challenges with the robot."

The competition, says Kelly, will have an added incentive: The person with the most skills will be going home with an Amazon Echo smart speaker-a robot of their very own.

The fair will also feature plenty of informational booths. Community members will have a chance to meet with Pender Community Hospital providers and staff to learn about topics including sun safety, immunizations, resources for diabetics, physical therapy, our Little Sprouts program, and much more.

"We hope the whole community will come participate in this fun and health-filled event," says Kelly.
