Dosher Memorial Hospital has received a Healthcare Achievement Award from Intalere for community impact and innovation, according to a news release.
"The award recognizes the initiative Dosher took, as a founding partner of the Brunswick Wellness Coalition (BWC), to secure innovative partnerships to help curb climbing rates of obesity and other chronic diseases in predominantly rural Brunswick County," officials stated in the release.
BWC consists of nearly 40 organizations and about 6,600 individuals in the county have participated in the initiative.
“We are grateful for this recognition from Intalere and are thrilled to see residents of Brunswick County getting involved with programs organized by the Wellness Coalition," Lynda Stanley, president of Dosher Memorial Hospital and the Dosher Foundation, said in the release. "Our hope is that they are taking knowledge they learn in Coalition sponsored programs and implementing it into the creation of healthier habits at home.
"Stanley sees Dosher’s involvement in BWC as an organic extension of being in healthcare. As a healthcare organization, we need to help lead the way with disease prevention and promotion of a healthier lifestyle.”
