Garden City Hospital Hosts Free Wellness and Heart Attack Survivors Event
Garden City, June 7, 2017 — On July 19, 2017, Garden City Hospital is hosting a free health, wellness and heart attack survivors’ recognition event at the City of Westland Building, 36300 Warren Road in Westland. The event starts at 1 p.m. and will include a special recognition ceremony, “Meet the Experts” panel discussion, health screenings, a heart-healthy cooking demonstration and free refreshments for participants. The event is open to members of the public touched by heart disease or who are interested in learning about reducing risks. Attendees will be eligible for a drawing for a door prize.
The event follows the ribbon cutting for the hospital’s new elective interventional cardiac angioplasty, or PCI program in May of this year. Heart disease remains the top cause of death in southeastern Michigan, making the availability of quality, timely access to PCI important in community hospital settings.
