Stamford Hospital nurses provide myriad outreach services throughout Fairfield County to address the healthcare needs of the community.
Fairfield County Women’s Expo
Stamford Hospital is the title sponsor of the Fairfield County Women’s Expo. Nurses and physicians present information on services and programs including minimally invasive surgery, cancer treatment, women’s breast health, rehabilitation, health and fitness, obstetrics, pediatrics, heart and vascular health, wound care and diabetes. More than 4,000 people attend the event, and in 2011, Stamford Hospital provided more than 2,000 free screenings.
Fight the Flu
Our relationship with affiliate schools of nursing also forms an important platform for the nurses’ community outreach activities. One example is Stamford Hospital’s “Fight the Flu” campaign in which nursing students join staff nurses to provide a valuable annual immunization service to the community.
The American Heart Association’s Go Red Luncheon
As the cause sponsor for the American Heart Association’s Go Red movement, Stamford Hospital has a significant presence at the annual luncheon. Nurses provide free screenings and counseling to attendees; physicians provide lectures and participate in panel discussions.
