Cura Recognizes Healthcare Workers, Older Americans in May

May is a busy month…Mother’s Day, Memorial Weekend, and the beginning of summer break.  May is also a time when Cura observes Older Americans Month, National Nursing Home, Nurses, Doctors, and Hospitals Weeks!

To help honor this year’s Older American’s Month theme, “Communities of Strength”, Cura at Presbyterian SeniorCare Network at Shenango on the Green in New Wilmington, PA, residents were treated to a delicious brunch with delicious quiche Lorraine, sausage, bacon, fried potatoes, waffles & chicken.   For dessert, who could resist cheese blitz with strawberry topping, donuts, danish, fresh fruit & even yogurt shots!

To help recognize our hospital staff, the team at John C Stennis Memorial Hospital in De Kalb, Mississippi (part of Rush Health Systems) celebrated hospital week with Wild Wild West special events, while Executive Chef Terry Geracia moved his celebration outside so hospital staff could enjoy picnic-style favorites from the grill at Allegheny Valley Hospital in Natrona Heights, PA!

In celebration of National Nursing Home Week, Cura and the Sisters of Charity of Cincinnati team members in Ohio were honored with t-shirts that featured the phrase “Hazard yet forward” on the back, a quote from St. Elizabeth Ann Seton, founder of the Sisters community.  A campus-wide grilling event was enjoyed by the Sisters and all employees. And for dessert…our Baker, Josh made 20 0+ cupcakes, a cupcake cake, and 300 scooped portions of local Cincinnati favorite, Graeter’s Ice Cream!

Happy National Nurses Week from the Lutheran Community at Telford in PA, where our full-time baker Roxanne prepared these celebration cakes to honor our staff!
