June 14, 2011 – Harris, N.Y. – Catskill Regional Medical Center’s (CRMC) Grover M. Hermann Hospital and Callicoon Family Health Center in Callicoon, N.Y., hosted a tour for a Hortonville preschool class on Tuesday, June 7.
Young Ambitions Nursery School Director Stacey Cruz, along with 15 of her students and several adult chaperones were treated to a special tour of the hospital, Emergency Department and Callicoon Family Health Center. After getting an insider’s look of the hospital and Emergency Department from Sam Berger, NP, the students took part in an activity focusing on proper hand washing techniques led by Clinical Director Joni Johannes, RN. The knowledge was quickly put to use as the students cleaned up and enjoyed a healthy snack in the cafeteria. Callicoon Family Health Center’s Nan Eschenberg, FNP, also instructed the children on proper sunscreen use and tick avoidance to ensure that they could fully enjoy their leisurely walk down the Grover M. Hermann community walking trail. The community walking trail, open to the public, is a wooded trail that is approximately one mile long and is open from dawn to dusk during spring, summer and fall.
