St. John's Episcopal Hospital
St. John's Episcopal Hospital will be hosting a Community & Back-to-School Wellness Fair, on Friday, August 4th, 2017, from 12:00pm to 6:00pm. The event will take place in the hospital’s Doctor’s Parking Lot, on Beach 19th Street. The goal for the Community & Back-to-School Wellness Fair is to educate and motivate our patients, families, and community to make positive health decisions, while providing school essentials. We will demonstrate that Health is Wealth, and “Good Health is the Best Back-to-School Supply”. This event has provided children of all ages with back to school supplies for many years. We usually host 1000 children throughout the day. The day will be filled with health education, health screenings, family fun, music, live entertainment, and food. St. John’s is a geographically isolated, 257 certified-bed, safety net hospital, and is the only hospital providing emergency and ambulatory health care to the densely populated, culturally and economically diverse, and medically underserved populations of the Rockaways in southern Queens County. The facility offers patients comprehensive preventive, treatment, and rehabilitative services, regardless of ability to pay.
