Atlantic Health Solutions is dedicated to our mission of devoted service; this involves establishing a culture of care at all of our facilities throughout the year, but focusing especially on that mission during the holiday season.
The staff at Atlantic Health Solutions focuses on charitable giving throughout the year in many ways and challenges our facilities to be involved with community outreach as well. The diagnostic imaging centers we work with donate their time to service opportunities in their area and also work to start charitable traditions of their own.
Advanced Imaging Centers (Florida) and Compass Imaging (Mississippi) worked together during October to promote the Pinky Swear Campaign they created which worked to spread the word about the importance of Early Detection and fundraising during Breast Cancer Awareness Month. The campaign utilized a “pay it forward” approach, in which patients, staff and referring offices vowed to tell three people important to them about early detection and swearing that they would get screened, due to the role that early detection can have in the survival rate of breast cancer patients. They also participated in Making Strides Against Breast Cancer walks and handed out coupons for discounted screens on their new Digital Mammography unit.
At Northeast Nebraska Imaging Center in Norfolk, they tried something new this year. The center as a whole has adopted a family of three, a single mother and her two children. The staff went shopping and found everything on their list, which means that they have provided the family with all of their needed supplies as well as some holiday cheer. Northeast Nebraska Imaging is also helping to grant a Christmas Wish for a Northeast Nebraskan Family by donating to US92’s Christmas Wish Program. The Christmas Wish Program, put on by the local radio station in Norfolk received hundreds of letters from Northeast Nebraskans who nominated someone that was in need this year. With the help of the Fraternal Order of Police and donations such as Northeast Nebraska’s, US92 can continue to grant as many wishes as possible.
In November, Northeast Nebraska Imaging also participated in The Warm Heart, Warm Hands Glove Campaign, delivering boxes to area clinics so that their staff and patients could donate gloves, hats, mittens and coats to help the area’s Bright Horizons locations. The center collected 127 hats, mittens, gloves, scarves and coats for charity.
Atlantic Health Solutions ourselves have donated gifts and our time to the Metropolitan Ministries, a charity dedicated community outreach and providing resources to help those in need find food, clothing, shelter and other services all year around but especially during the holiday season. Their mission is to alleviate suffering, promote dignity and instill self-sufficiency, which if you think about it, are things that our facilities work towards each and every day.
