Uintah Basin Healthcare Holds Service Day

How do you celebrate 75 years of service to others? By having a day of service. Uintah Basin Healthcare had the first annual service day on Tuesday as the kick off to the 75th anniversary of the health group. The hospital had the goal to see if they could get 75 employees to volunteer their time to the community. The employees stepped up in a big way. 250 of the 700 took action. What kinds of service was render? Employees hosted the Heroes T-Ball game and BBQ to honor first responders and the Family to Family Network, volunteered at the animal shelter, painted doors and playground equipment for ConAmore school, gathered donations for the food bank, worked at the food pantry, did yard work for the elderly, hosted a bake sale, volunteered at the school, and helped clean the Vernal City Park, among other acts. Thank you Uintah Basin Healthcare for the quality of care you give and the example you set. Within 24 hours they were able to show the Basin how service can positively affect the community.
