Around St Joseph Medical Center 2017

Senior Health and Wellness Expo

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 Care 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.
