Local Health Care Providers Go to Camp

CINCINNATI—July 11, 2013—This Friday, July 12, 2013, local hospitals and health care providers attend camp to volunteer for United Way’s Healthcare Come Together Day.

UC Medical Center CEO and President, Lee Ann Liska will chair the event which hosts health care CEO’s, administrators, medical staff and associates from the community. Health care providers will volunteer as camp buddies to youth with disabilities at Stepping Stones Center, a United Way agency partner. They will join camper groups with trained staff, helping with various activities.

“It makes sense to join forces to improve the healthcare needs of the community and make a difference in people’s lives,” says Lee Ann Liska, President and CEO of UC Medical Center who chairs the event for a second year in a row.

Liska is managing the collaboration of health care institutions which include: UC Health, Catholic Health Partners, Cincinnati Children’s Hospital, GE Aviation, Mercy Health, and St. Elizabeth Healthcare.

The United Way’s efforts to improve the quality of life to those in need goes hand in hand with the vision of those in health care. On this day, every health care volunteer will leave their company ID at the door, uniting together on one team for the greater good of all in the community.

Liska adds, “In health care, we all have a passion for our mission to serve others. We need to recognize that improving the community’s health is possible when we come together in a collective way. We cannot accomplish this alone. Our individual success is interdependent with our collective success.”

Health care volunteers will assist with activities throughout the day which include swimming, boating, fishing, crafts, music, games, and building friendships.
