Centura Health

Commitment

Started on October 6, 2012
3 year commitment

Hospitals are the places we go to get healthy, so the food we eat while there should have a positive impact on our bodies. With this in mind, more than 700 hospital partners across the nation, including Centura Health, teamed up with us to make healthier choices easier.

On October 6, 2012, Centura Health joined the Hospital Healthier Food Initiative, partnering with us on our mission to create dramatic and expansive improvements in hospital nutrition. From committing to display only health-promoting food options in cafeteria and menu advertising, to removing all fryers and deep-fat fried products and placing healthier food options within five feet of the checkout, the changes have the potential to reach many in the 12 participating Centura Health hospitals.

“Centura Health’s mission is to extend the healing ministry of Christ by caring for those who are ill and by nurturing the health of the people in its communities. As the region’s leading health care network, we continue to lead a culture of health and well-being. In partnership with our associates, patients and community, we are making sustainable changes to our entity’s environments by providing tools and resources that make healthy choices easy.
