FORT LAUDERDALE, FLA.  – With funds provided by parent organization Trinity Health, non-profit Holy Cross Hospital recently invested $150,000 in improving outdoor spaces at several sites across Broward County.

The goal of the initiative, part of the hospital’s Project SLIM – Supporting Lifelong Improvement (through) Movement – campaign, is to improve the health and well-being of approximately 4,200 lower-income children, adults, and seniors in Broward County through increased physical activity and dedicated space for mental relaxation.

“Having a safe, inviting outdoor space to play, exercise and simply relax and enjoy a ‘brain break’ is critical for our well-being and overall health, no matter what age,” said Holy Cross Hospital Vice President of Community Health and Well-Being Kim Saiswick. “We are very grateful to Trinity Health for making these improvements financially possible, and also thank for all of our wonderful partners at the Broward County Housing Authority, Broward County Public Schools and Made in Broward for helping us to complete these improvement projects for the collective benefit of our community.”

Outdoor spaces were created and/or enhanced at designated Broward County Housing Authority sites, Broward County public schools, and three 4-H clubs sponsored by the non-profit organization Made in Broward.

Improvements included the installment of sunshades over play areas, resurfacing of playgrounds, and new benches and picnic tables, chickee huts, water fountains, concrete game slabs, water play equipment, yoga mats and games.
