Spirit of Women
Henry County Medical Center is a member of Spirit of Women, an elite coalition of American health systems and healthcare providers that ascribe to the highest standards of excellence in women’s health, education and community outreach. Providing award-winning creative materials based upon current women’s health research, Spirit works in cooperation with many national health agencies -the Office on Women’s Health, American Diabetes Association, National Stroke Association, Developing Healthy People 2020 and the National Heart, Lung and Blood Institute. This exciting program complements Henry County Medical Center’s mission to provide health education and community outreach for families in Henry County and the surrounding region, with an emphasis on women.
Why Focus on Women?
Women make up 85% of all healthcare decisions in their households.The Spirit of Women philosophy is consistent with Henry County Medical Center’s mission to provide the highest quality, affordable healthcare services and education to the citizens of Henry County and the adjoining counties, helping to improve the quality of health in the region. We will help educate women and empower them to take action that results in better health for their families.
Can Men Join the Spirit of Women?
Men of all ages are welcome to join and receive member benefits. The Spirit of Women encourages men to take positive action for improved health and will host programs that specifically address men’s health issues and specific healthcare needs. But, there may be events exclusive to women, regardless of membership.
Spirit of Women motivates women to make positive changes in their lives by emphasizing their total well-being – mind, body and spirit. It brings together traditional women’s health with a diverse range of healthier lifestyles, preventative care and educational programs. Throughout, there is an ongoing emphasis on family health and wellness. By growing the HCMC Spirit of Women membership and actively educating and engaging our members, we are helping to meet our mission at Henry County Medical Center.
