Get Ready for the Fremont Festival of the Arts

Washington Hospital Booth to Showcase a Variety of Programs and Services

The upcoming Fremont Festival of the Arts held August 4-5, 2007 is the largest free street-festival in California. The festival is expected to showcase more than 700 artists exhibiting arts and crafts pieces and the event also features more than 30 wine selections from around the world.

For the third year in a row, Washington Hospital will stage an information booth located in the Business Alley section of the festival. People attending the festival are encouraged to stop by and visit the booth to learn more about the Hospital's community services and top-notch medical programs. Hospital representatives from several departments will be available during the festival to advise members of the community about all the specific medical services, classes, and resources that are accessible throughout the Washington Hospital Healthcare System.

Come and Say Hello!
Staffing this year's booth will be members of the Washington Hospital Foundation, Washington Hospital Service League and physicians representing the Washington Township Medical Group. Attendees will also have the opportunity to learn about the free Washington Hospital Health Insurance Information Service and the resources available at the Washington Hospital Community Health Resource Library. Attendees are more than welcome to say hello and meet our friendly staff.

"This festival is an excellent way for the Hospital to touch base with our community and inform people about the wide array of health and wellness programs that the Hospital offers," says Ruth Traylor, Washington Hospital's Director of Community Outreach. "Our knowledgeable staff is looking forward to sharing their expertise and having a lot of fun this coming weekend."

People attending the festival are also invited to stop by and visit with staff members of the InHealth Channel. InHealth, Channel 78 recently celebrated its second anniversary and members of the InHealth team will be on hand to answer questions and ask people what they like most about the current programming and what kind of programs they would like to see in the future.

The Washington Hospital booth will be located in the Business Alley portion of the Fremont Festival of the Arts. The Business Alley is located on State Street between Capitol Avenue and Beacon Street. Hospital staff will be present on Saturday and Sunday from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. Be sure to come and see us!
