SALEM — The Salem Regional Medical Center (SRMC) Foundation has announced that the 2nd Annual Hearts and Arts Wellness & Craft Expo raised $2,576 on behalf of the Foundation to support patient care at SRMC.

“We truly appreciate the opportunity to partner with Blossom Nursing and Rehabilitation Center, FirstLight Home Care, Myers Family Insurance, The Hometown Pharmacy, Capital Senior Living and Community Hospice on this unique event supporting the Foundation,” said Amy Reed, SRMC Director of Development. “All of the funds raised will remain locally in our community and be used to benefit area patients. We also extend a special thanks to the more than 80 area organizations and craft vendors who participated in the Expo, as well as those in the community who attended the event.”

The Expo, which took place Sept. 6 at Salem First Friends Church, featured a free health and wellness fair and craft show.

Several area health care providers and community organizations offered resources and information, with free health screenings provided by Salem Home Medical, Kent State nursing students and SRMC Rehabilitation Services.

Expo attendees also had the opportunity to hear presentations by SRMC-affiliated physicians, including Dr. Michael Sevilla, Dr. Peter Apicella and Dr. Joseph Rousher.
