On September 7, Bryn Mawr Hospital was a sponsor of Bryn Mawr Day 2013,
which recognizes institutions, schools, churches and businesses that
have been in continuous operation for a century or more. Bryn Mawr
Hospital and Nemours Pediatrics provided entertainment by Radio Disney,
featuring a toy clinic with “Doc McStuffins,” a girl who plays vet to
her stuffed animals, as well as a scavenger hunt to the Nemours Kids
Transport Ambulance. Bryn Mawr Hospital’s Community Health Services
staffed a health information table featuring a chance for attendees to
spin the Wellness Wheel.
A highlight of the day was the hospital’s Orthopedic Reunion Walk. Close
to 70 people participated in the one-mile walk, including patients and
their families, orthopedic program staff, administration and surgeons.
“We wanted to have a reunion that would celebrate our patient’s
success by highlighting their improved mobility through a celebratory
walk,” explained Sharon Register, Joint Replacement Program Manager of
Bryn Mawr Hospital. “Participants were able to enjoy the beautiful day
with a walk, which some chose to do a few times, as well as attend Bryn
Mawr Day. The event was uplifting for all, and many asked if we were
going to do it again next year.”
