Putting the Kids to Work

1760Last month PPMC took part in another successful, “Take Your Kids to Work Day.” Over 200 children from PPMC employee families attended this year’s educational and entertaining activities. Each year, participating groups develop new interactive activities for children to learn about healthcare as a career choice and educate children on health prevention/ improvement. This year, kids received hands-on CPR training, learned about respiration therapy techniques, participated in simulated laproscopic surgery, and more!

Thank you to all our volunteers and participants for making the day a success and enhancing our culture of excellence at PPMC. Click through to the full story below for a slideshow of photos from the day’s activities.
