ACH Offering Tours
â€œWe feel it is important to open our doors to the community so they have the opportunity to experience the way we have embraced the Planetree concept of patient-centered care. We utilize every opportunity to make positive and compassionate differences in patient care at ACH,â€ explained Marcy Todd, volunteer coordinator at AHS.
â€œPlanetree addresses the healing of each patient's mind, body and spirit. If a patient comes in with a broken leg, it isn't just the leg we treat. There is a person attached to that leg, and that person has loved ones attached to them. So the service we provide must touch each component of that patient â€“ not just the broken leg,â€ she said.
The first tour will be held on Tuesday, October 14 at 10:00 a.m. The second tour will be held on Wednesday, October 22 at 1:00 p.m. Each tour will last approximately 1 Â½ hours. Individuals interested in participating in either of the tours are asked to call the volunteer department at the hospital, 330-596-7822 or 330-596-7821, at least a day prior to the tour to make reservations. Comfortable shoes are suggested.
â€œWe are very proud of our facility. But it is not the facility that administers care to our patients and their loved ones. Our quality care and state-of-the-art technology are two vital components to our patient care. However, what sets us apart from other healthcare facilities are the home-like services and the genuine compassionate that our patients and their loved ones receive on a daily basis. Going above and beyond is a concept we live by each day,â€ said Todd.
