Local Businesses Encouraged to Join Winchester Hospital’s Business Partners Program

Winchester Hospital’s Business Partners Program, launched in 2011 as a way to encourage businesses to help support the hospital, brings leaders in the business community and the hospital together to consider, discuss and build collaborative relationships that strengthen and benefit our communities. 

Executives from more than two dozen local businesses are expected to attend the next Business Partners Program breakfast at Winchester Hospital on Tuesday, March 19.

Businesses who attend this spring event, which will be held in Winchester Hospital’s Andrews Conference Room (CC1), will hear Kevin Smith, president and CEO of Winchester Hospital and keynote speaker James DeVellis, MD, chief of orthopedic surgery at Winchester Hospital, discuss sports injuries and prevention.

Through a series of breakfast meetings on topics ranging from the sweeping changes in health care reform to the latest developments in cancer research, members of the Business Partners Program have the opportunity to share their expertise while helping to ensure that Winchester Hospital’s patients continue to have access to the highest quality care, the latest medical technology and essential wellness and prevention programs.

At the Business Partners Program breakfast this past fall, 40 business leaders listened to Arlan F. Fuller Jr., MD, vice president of integration of oncology services and academic affiliations, speak about why he chose to come to Winchester Hospital and the important work that takes place at the hospital’s Center for Cancer Care.

Business Partners receive special recognition and acknowledgement that underscore their positive affiliation with Winchester Hospital. Additional benefits include on-site wellness lectures and opportunities to participate in a rewarding volunteer experience.
