Join us for our 3rd annual Luminary Walk!

Warm winter greetings from our clinical, accessible hoop house!

We hope you can join us for our third annual Winter Luminary Walk, in partnership with St. Joseph Mercy later this month at The Farm. This event is free, and features two miles of illuminated trails for hiking, family-friendly activities, hot beverages, wellness goal setting and even live music! It’s a great opportunity to re-connect with nature and to set the new year off in a fun way.

Hot food from WoodFiredUp will also be available on-site for purchase.

The last two years have been great successes, with hundreds of folks from the community coming out to say hello and enjoy the illuminated forest paths. Invite your friends and family and celebrate winter with us!

 

More information can be found below, at stjoeshealth.org/luminary-walk, or at our Facebook page. We look forward to seeing you there!

Happy Holidays from Eisenhower Center

Campus-Wide Thanksgiving Celebration!

This year Eisenhower Center celebrated Thanksgiving with a campus-wide dinner, sharing thanks with clients, family, and staff. Staff of each unit did their part preparing a special part of the meal with the help of our amazing clients – be it stuffing or a delicious pie. Each client also had the opportunity to share what they were thankful for by writing on part of a hand-made banner which was then hung up for all to see!

 

Eisenhower’s Annual Holiday Party

Just recently, Eisenhower clients, family, and friends all gathered together for Eisenhower’s annual holiday party. Bright smiles and sounds of laughter were shared under the wonderfully decorated ballroom. The evening was filled with great food, dancing, and quite a few special performances from clients and staff alike. Santa and Mrs. Claus even made an appearance with unique gifts for each of our clients!

From all of us here at Eisenhower Center, from Paradise in the Upper Peninsula,  down to our recently opened Jacksonville, Florida facility, we’d like to wish you all a happy holiday season and the best of luck in 2018!

CPAN Summary Analysis of HB 5013 + Call for Action

Last week Thursday, HB 5013 passed out of committee and now sits on the House floor for a vote.  This bill, which the CPAN legal team has labeled “the end of no-fault as we know it”,  will likely be brought up on the floor for a house vote this week, with a second reading on Wednesday and vote on Thursday.  Mayor Duggan, and a number prominent Detroit Business men and corporations are working hard to advance this bill as well as members from the Michigan Chamber. THE TIME IS NOW TO TAKE ACTION – YOUR VOICE MATTERS.
You are strongly encouraged to join us at the Capitol and voice your opposition to this legislation that would authorize unprecedented dollar cap limitations on no-fault benefits, give insurance companies substantial control over patients’ medical care; greatly increases the power of the insurance companies while taking legal rights away from patients; and offers temporary premium rate reductions if any. A strong showing of folks opposing this bill outside the house floor both days is important.  Anticipate two long afternoons especially on Thursday.  Session on Thursday starts at noon.
CPAN has arranged for a place to meet, receive a short update, gather materials and have lunch across the street from the House Office Building at the Central Methodist Church basement, 215 North Capitol from 11:00 AM until 2:00 PM on Wednesday and from 10:00 AM until 2:00 PM on Thursday.  Salad, pizza and beverages will be provided by CPAN on  Wednesday at about 11:45 AM.  Lunch on Thursday will be ready about 11:00 AM prior to the start of a noon House session.

Here is a link to the Statement CPAN released last Thursday following the committee vote. Also attached is a copy of CPAN’s Analysis of the H-1 version of the bill.   http://www.cpan.us/docs/10.26.16_CPAN_Release_Top_5_Things_About_5013_FINAL.pdf
