Apr 21, 2016

PHOENIX (April 21, 2016)Abrazo Central Campus employees conducted healthcare career presentations to more than 120 Orangewood Elementary School eighth graders.

The hospital employees on April 13 provided insight into different aspects of the healthcare industry including surgery, inpatient acute rehabilitation, dietary services, emergency department, nursing and business development.

“The Abrazo Central Campus presentations were part of the Take Action Initiative which was created to motivate eighth grade students to think about future career opportunities and consider the necessary steps to get there,’’ said Dan Jones, Abrazo Central Campus Chief Executive Officer.

In addition, the Take Action Initiative is an avenue for Abrazo Central Campus, 2000 W. Bethany Home Road, and other local businesses to become visible partners in the community, said Patrick Brown, Abrazo Central Campus Business Development Director.

The career presentation is one of many ways that Abrazo Central Campus has been supporting Orangewood Elementary School. Earlier this year, Abrazo Central Campus provided fruit for all Orangewood Elementary School students to promote healthy eating. The hospital also helped fund three classroom projects. Abrazo Central Campus was recognized for its partnership during a Washington Elementary School District Business Advisory Team meeting.
