Oconto Falls – HSHS St. Clare Memorial Hospital and Prevea Health helped hundreds of community members and colleagues get a jump-start on Halloween festivities, with the annual Treat-and-Greet event held Tuesday, Oct. 29.
A free, family-friendly event, Treat-and-Greet offers trick-or-treating, food and refreshments, and opportunities to tour the hospital campus and learn about the diversity of services provided. Attendees were able to “trick-or-treat” throughout the hospital campus, including the Medical Services Building where Prevea Health offers a variety of specialty care.
“Treat-and-Greet showcases the true meaning of community,” said Amber Just, Volunteer Services Facilitator at HSHS St. Clare Memorial Hospital, who also attended Tuesday’s event. “Residents and colleagues get the chance to come together to share smiles and yummy treats. Hosting this event gives the community the opportunity to see the large array of high-equality services that HSHS St. Clare Memorial Hospital is so proud to provide.”
More than 400 community members of all ages attended Tuesday’s event, while providers and colleagues handed out treats. There were costumes of all kinds including witches, a policeman, kitties, the tooth fairy and more.
“HSHS St. Clare Memorial Hospital is so appreciative of this community,” said Amanda Rice, Patient Financial Manager at HSHS St. Clare Memorial Hospital. “Hosting Treat and Greet is a wonderful way to enhance the connection we have with our northern communities.”
This was the third year of Treat-and-Greet, hosted by HSHS St. Clare Memorial Hospital and Prevea Health.
