Unity Health is excited to announce Community of Caring, formerly A Day of Caring, is expanding to include Community of Caring Drives and Volunteer Days all across Searcy and throughout the year, beginning with a 2022 Kick-Off during the month of September!
Healthworks, a comprehensive health promotion program, is a partnership between Unity Health and area businesses, industries, schools and senior groups. Healthworks offers health and wellness screenings, disease prevention programs, safety training and worksite wellness education. More than 130 community businesses receive a variety of services at nominal costs as well as complimentary monthly blood pressure checks, immunizations, total wellness screenings, hepatitis A and B immunizations, safety education, prostate cancer screenings, spirometry, hearing and vision screenings, and tuberculosis skin tests.
Healthworks manages the hospital and community cardiopulmonary resuscitation program (CPR) with 60 instructors who use the American Heart Association guidelines.
Please see our Event Calendar for more information on various seminars, programs and classes throughout the year.
To emphasize the importance of health and exercise for children, K.C. Koala, the hospital's mascot, promotes health and wellness through special appearances at local schools and childcare centers. By educating children at a young age, we aim to improve their health throughout their lifetime. To schedule K.C. Koala for a visit, please call 501.278.3230.
This fun program focusses on teaching 3rd grade children to be healthy by using creative educational lessons specifically created for their age group.
Unity Health continues to make the health and wellbeing of our community the top priority in all we do. By providing this fun, engaging, and rewarding Unity Kids program, we aim to provide children with the tools they need to make healthy choices for a lifetime.
The Unity Kids program provides:
- “How to be Healthy” educational materials.
- Ambassador kids t-shirts.
- Grant opportunity for up to $3000.
Unity Health understands that teachers have a lot to accomplish in the classroom, so the Unity Kids program is designed to be quickly and easily implemented and to maximize the benefit for students, teachers and the school overall. Some school districts have been participating for the past four to five years and have successfully received grant funding to promote physical, mental, emotional and spiritual health of students in the school environment.
