As the Senior Circle program at Pikes Peak Regional Hospital prepares to celebrate its first anniversary in July 2013, the seniors- oriented program has already reached the 230 membership plateau.
This is a very exciting achievement for Senior Circle and our hospital,” said Terry Buckner, CEO. “As the senior population continues to embrace our program it shows this age group understands the importance of maintaining a healthier lifestyle. Senior’s needs and interests are unique and as such, we wanted to create a program especially for them.”
Senior Circle is designed for people age 55+. The program offers a wide variety of activities, medical screenings and other services to enhance their wellbeing plus provide a chance for folks to meet new friends.
