Car Show Brings Joy to Patients, Visitors
Spectrum Health Continuing Care Hosts Annual Event
The show – car show, that is – will go on once again this year at Spectrum Health Continuing Care.
For the sixth consecutive year, staff members and volunteers at Spectrum Health Continuing Care (SHCC), 750 Fuller Avenue, Grand Rapids, will make sure that residents and patients, their families and the community get the chance to enjoy viewing new and classic cars in a special show from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Saturday, July 21 in the facility parking lot.
Each year, between 70-90 community members bring a car to show off. SHCC residents and patients vote on which two vehicles will earn a special People’s Choice Award.
“Our residents and patients look forward to this event every year. It brings back memories of when they were young, what cars they have owned in the past or car shows they attended themselves,” said Jeff Mislevy, president, Spectrum Health Continuing Care. “Events like these make a difference and we are very thankful to the staff and volunteers that put this event together for the community.”
Spectrum Health Continuing Care serves approximately 2,000 patients each day. The SHCC Fuller campus is home to 200 long-term care residents, in addition to 60 subacute rehabilitation and 30 long-term acute care patients. For more information, please visit www.spectrumhealth.org/continuingcare.
