Palmetto Health Tuomey unveiled their Healthcare Occupations Activity Book to 91 ecstatic second grade students at Lemira Elementary School. Chief Operating Officer Michelle Logan-Owens and representatives from departments such as environmental services, nursing, cardiology, guest services, pharmacy, radiology, food services, and technology spoke to the students about their careers.

“We consider it our privilege to be your partner in education. We want to help introduce our future workforce to careers in healthcare,” said Logan-Owens. “I am fully confident you can accomplish anything you set your mind to, and we hope you will be excited about the possibility to serve and take care of people right here in your community.”

This outstanding partnership began last year when Palmetto Health Tuomey adopted Lemira Elementary School through the Partners in Education program. They have donated over 200 books to their library, provided meals for students, served as volunteers and mentors, provided academic incentives for students, served on the School Improvement Council, and assisted with the STEM Club. We are very appreciative to Palmetto Health Tuomey for investing in the lives of our children.
