CRMC set for Heart Health Month Submitted photo

Coffee Regional Medical Center has lots of exciting events planned throughout the month of February in recognition of heart month.

 

The CRMC Gift Shop and select physician offices will be selling paper hearts throughout the month. These decorative hearts give the purchaser the opportunity to honor a loved one lost to heart disease or to celebrate a survivor of heart disease. The hearts will be displayed in prominent locations on the CRMC campus throughout February. On March 6th each heart will be displayed at General Coffee State Park where they will line the 5k and 10k race routes. This display is a beautiful tribute to those lives both honored and celebrated.

 

A new event this year is our Valentine Flower Sale. A limited number of potted plants will be sold on the front lawn of Coffee Regional Medical Center on Thursday, February 11th. Hydrangeas and cyclamen, both flowering plants, are now being pre-sold. We encourage those interested to, please; get your orders in today as we expect to sell out due to demand and limited inventory. To purchase a plant for pick up on February 11th, please contact The Wellness Center at (912) 383-6988.
