Grand View Hospital Employees Get Creative to Show Their Support for Breast Cancer Awareness
| (October 26, 2012) Sellersville, PA – Grand View Hospital employees showed their support for National Breast Cancer Awareness Month by wearing something pink on Friday, October 26.
Employees were asked to be creative when picking out something pink, as a new policy adopted in May standardized uniform colors for employees working in clinical areas at Grand View Hospital. This policy was enacted to help patients know who’s who during their hospital stay.
While uniforms were still required, employees were allowed to wear pink accessories. Those who were able to attend during their shift gathered in the main lobby for a group photo. Showing their support, employees donned everything from pink masks to pink wigs to a bouquet of pink flowers, as well as other pink accessories.
This October marks Grand View’s sixth annual Paint the Town Pink campaign, which raises awareness for breast cancer, and the importance of early detection and breast self-exams. The campaign features free educational programs to community members, informational displays at local businesses, and a free gift to women who pledge to schedule their mammogram during October.
