Gordon Hospital recently held a dedication ceremony for the CREATION Health Wellness Walk. Guests in attendance included employees of Gordon Hospital, members of the foundation board, Jeremy Collis of Northwest Georgia Paving, and the Gordon County Chamber of Commerce.
Funded by the employees of Gordon Hospital, Gordon Hospital Foundation, and community partner Northwest Georgia Paving, the CREATION Health Wellness Walk is a beautifully landscaped one-third-of-a-mile pathway designed to provide enjoyment and recreation for the employees of Gordon Hospital and the community. The walk has numerous exercise stations along the trail. Its purpose is to be a safe place of exercise and recreation for employees of the hospital and the entire community.
The dedication ceremony started off with a word of welcome from Kathy Johnson, president of the Gordon County Chamber of Commerce. Pete Weber, president and CEO of Gordon Hospital, gave a word of thanks and appreciation to all those who donated to make the project a reality. Attendees were also invited to make a 25-year wish for Gordon Hospital on a provided card for a time capsule that will be buried near the CREATION Health Wellness Walk, and opened in 25 years.
“The CREATION Health Wellness Walk is a wonderful asset to employees, patients, and the community as it provides a safe and convenient place to get out and walk,” said Denise Rustad, CREATION Health coordinator. “Regular activity is so important for our health, and walking is a free and easy way to make sure we are getting our daily dose of cardiovascular exercise. I am excited to see people take advantage of this wonderful opportunity to better their health.”
