Washington Adventist Hospital

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 Washington Adventist Hospital (WAH), teamed up with PHA to make healthier choices easier.

On October 6, 2012, WAH joined the Hospital Healthier Food Initiative, partnering with us to create dramatic and expansive improvements in hospital nutrition. From committing to displaying 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, WAH’s changes have the potential to impact many patients, employees and guests.

Washington Adventist Hospital is proud to be one of the first hospitals in the nation to sign-on to this initiative. Partnering with PHA and the First Lady will help us continue our work of providing food to our patients, guests and employees that contributes to their good health

~Marc Bloom, Executive Director for Community Relations and Support Services

With more than 450,000 meals served a year to 75,000 patients and 1,600 employees, WAH will help to make the healthy choice easier and more appealing for its patients and dining customers.

More than 700 hospital partners (10 percent of all hospitals nationwide) take part in our Hospital Healthier Food Initiative.
