oboro health 300OWENSBORO, Ky. (6/2/14) — Owensboro Health Regional Hospital is celebrating the one-year anniversary of its opening with community and employee events, including the debut of the Harvest Market, Tuesday, June 3.

The anniversary will include live music, cooking demonstrations and more.

“This is an opportunity to recognize the hard work that staff members throughout the entire organization do every day in support of our mission,” Patterson said. “This day is not just about celebrating the bricks and mortar, but about celebrating the people who make the health system successful.”

Patterson added that Owensboro Health has a lot to celebrate. “We are a recipient of Healthgrades America’s 100 Best™ Hospital award (2013 and 2014), which ranks us in the top 2 percent nationally, and also received the Healthgrades Distinguished Hospital Award for Clinical Excellence™ six years in a row (2009-2014). We’re the only hospital in the region to receive this distinction and it’s all thanks to our staff,” Patterson said. “The foundation of the health system is truly the people who work here and the world-class quality of care they deliver. This event is about celebrating the bright future that lies ahead.”

During the afternoon, a celebration for community members will take place from 1:30 to 5:30 p.m. in Parking Lot B on the Pleasant Valley Campus. This will include the debut of the Harvest Market, in conjunction with the Owensboro Regional Farmer’s Market, which will take place each Tuesday starting June 3 through Sept. 2. The June 3 Harvest Market brings all the vendors and features of the Owensboro Regional Farmer’s Market and adds in cooking demonstrations, smoothie making, wellness activities and other attractions.

Bringing the Harvest Market to Owensboro Health Regional Hospital is also a way to promote healthy living, Patterson said. “This is truly an opportunity for Owensboro Health to live its mission, to help improve the health of the communities we serve,” Patterson said.
