Palm Coast and Florida Hospital Flagler announce expanded partnership: The Palm Coast Parks & Recreation Department and Florida Hospital Flagler have a common goal and mission – to improve the quality of life of local residents through health and wellness initiatives. The city and the hospital have worked together in the past, and now they’re making the partnership official and expanding the number of community activities offered jointly. A new Health and Wellness Event Partnership was announced at Tuesday’s meeting of the Palm Coast City Council. Among the newest programs supported by the hospital are the Lunch N’ Lecture Series, offered on the third Friday of each month, and the Coffee Series, held on the second Wednesday of each month. Topics for the free lecture series are often centered around health issues, and Florida Hospital Flagler doctors have served as speakers. The hospital has supported the Palm Coast and the Flagler Beaches Senior Games and Parks & Recreation Month in July in recent years, and that will continue. On July 27, as part of Parks & Recreation Month, a free public health screening will be held at the Palm Coast Community Center, and the hospital is planning other health screening events, as well. For Senior Games, scheduled for Sept. 7 to 23 this year, the hospital will do community outreach and provide a physical therapist at Senior Games events. Florida Hospital Flagler is also supporting the new Mayor’s 30/30 Challenge, which kicks off Saturday and continues through April 23. The challenge is to move at least 30 miles in 30 days – an average of one mile per day. Participants can sign up and log their miles at www.palmcoastgov.com/healthy. They can choose their own form of exercise. “This health and wellness sponsorship between Florida Hospital Flagler and Palm Coast Parks & Recreation was designed to motivate individuals to live healthier lives,” Florida Hospital Flagler CEO Dr. Ron Jimenez said during Tuesday’s announcement. “This aligns with the vision of Florida Hospital Flagler to provide holistic care, and by holistic care we mean care that addresses not just physical health, but also emotional and spiritual health.”
