St. Joseph Medical Center and the Red Bridge Family YMCA have forged a partnership to better serve the health needs of seniors.

St. Joseph Medical Center is focusing on seniors with its Senior Comfort Services. One of the components is Community Services, in which St. Joseph will partner with the Red Bridge YMCA to offer educational, exercise, wellness and social activities.

The organizations’ shared commitment to health and wellness in the community makes the partnership a natural fit and benefits the community through increased opportunities for services for the growing population of older adults.

To kick off the partnership, St. Joseph Medical Center and the Red Bridge Family YMCA are inviting seniors to learn more and sign up for programs at one of the following launch events:

April 3, 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.
St. Joseph Medical Center, Alex George Auditorium

Kansas City, MO, 64114

April 5, 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.
Red Bridge Family YMCA
11300 Holmes Road
Kansas City, MO 64131

The Expo will include free blood pressure screenings, free QuantaFlo screenings and information about a variety of opportunities available to seniors through the two organizations, including exercise and fitness classes, cooking and nutrition classes, and educational programs on a variety of topics such as managing diabetes and hypertension. St. Joseph will also provide a series of healthcare experts to discuss our specialty care options for seniors.
