Enjoy a “fresh approach to breakfast” on Saturday, May 11, when Grinnell Regional Medical Center will host a community-wide breakfast and health fair. Breakfast will feature made-to-order omelets, sausage, fresh fruit bar, mini-pastries, and beverages.
“This year a main attraction will be the daVinci robotic surgical unit. Guests will be able to sit at the unit and experience first-hand how the surgeon sits and performs surgeries,” says Denise Lamphier, director of communications and development for GRMC. “We will move the unit into the surgery waiting area so guests can see and actually move the robotic arms. It’s amazing technology.”
The community breakfast and health fair at GRMC welcomes the public to become familiar with the medical center, learn about the services available, and enjoy a great breakfast.
The GRMC community breakfast and health fair will run from 6:30 to 10 a.m. Breakfast will be served in the hospital cafeteria and booths will be in the Tomasek Conference Room and second floor surgical waiting area. GRMC administrators, staff, and physicians will be the omelet makers for the morning.
Proceeds from the free-will donation breakfast will go toward the daVinci surgical unit. GRMC is currently leasing the system. The goal is to purchase the equipment as soon as possible. Surgeons at GRMC have performed many surgeries with the daVinci, with significant improvements for the patients’ recovery and well-being.
