A variety of hospitals and health care systems have already joined the We Can!™ movement. We Can! sites, such as the Scott & White Memorial Hospital and Clinic, are using program materials and messages to improve community health.
Scott & White Memorial Hospital and Clinic
The Children’s Hospital at Scott & White is the largest multi-specialty practice in Texas . As part of We Can!, the Tem-Bel Health and Wellness Coalition is offering CATCH Kid’s Club, Media-Smart Youth, S.M.A.R.T., and the We Can! parent program through schools and youth and recreation centers.
Key successes included receiving “Best Practices” recognition from the Department of State Health Services, receiving Cardiovascular Health Promotion Award from the Texas Council on Cardiovascular Disease and Stroke, and hosting the Cru Quest/Kids Quest event by partnering with the University of Mary Hardin-Baylor (UMHB) on its Fun Run and Health Fair.
Scott & White drew on the strengths of partnerships formed through the Tem-Bel Health and Wellness Coalition to participate in four community events that attracted over 800 attendees. These sites helped generate local media coverage that contributed to the two awards that Scott & White and the Tem-Bel Health and Wellness Coalition received for their efforts in implementing We Can! programming. The site also worked with the Scott & White media and marketing departments to design posters and fliers that could be put up in the schools.
