Northwest Hospital Participates in an Adopt-a-School Program with Windsor Mill Middle School
Northwest Hospital in Randallstown announced its
partnership with Windsor Mill Middle School in the Adopt-a-School program today
at a "Freedom to Explore” event held at the middle school.
"As a part of the fabric of the community, Northwest
Hospital has a responsibility to help those whom we serve,” said Erik Wexler,
president and COO of Northwest Hospital. "This program allows us to
provide programming for students and to educate them about the role of health
care in our community. We are thrilled to have launched this relationship with
the Windsor Mill School.”
The Freedom to Explore initiative engages Northwest Hospital team members with students while they
explore the worlds of science, technology, engineering and math. Each month, a
different health professional or group of professionals will visit the school to
talk to students about career opportunities in the allied health care field.
Students will also have the opportunity to visit the hospital for hands-on
learning. Throughout the school year, employees from the hospital will also
provide mentoring and job-shadowing opportunities.
"These types of interactions give young people the
freedom to explore their interests, broaden the scope of their expectations and
reach new heights of achievement,” said Wexler.
Northwest Hospital is a member of LifeBridge Health, a
regional health organization, which includes Sinai
Hospital of Baltimore, Levindale Hebrew
Geriatric Center and Hospital, Jewish
Convalescent & Nursing Home, and related subsidiaries and
