Piedmont Hospital Joins Spirit of Women

Piedmont Hospital announced today that it has joined Spirit of Women, a partnership of hospitals and healthcare systems across the country that provide educational health opportunities in an environment that is fun for women.

"Spirit of Women enables Piedmont Hospital to continue its focus on improving the health of its community while adding the strength and support of a national health and wellness network," says Tanya Abreu, president of Spirit of Women. "Piedmont can now choose from established, measurable programs that are based on a comprehensive set of performance guidelines that target the leading cause of illness and death in women.”

Spirit of Women guidelines are updated annually and guided by national standards, including Healthy People 2010. Because women make up to 85 percent of household healthcare decisions, the educational and motivational efforts of Spirit of Women positively impact the well-being of the entire family and community as a whole.

Piedmont Hospital will provide a wide variety of Spirit of Women inspired events that not only include the education, screenings and support groups that will reach women in all stages of their lives but also fun activities like mini-spa treatments for stress relief, dance lessons to get the heart pumping and Ask-the-Doctor social hours.
