Luncheon planned for retired SAMC employees

SAMC is hosting a luncheon for retired SAMC employees on Wednesday, March 25 from noon —1:30 p.m. in the 7th floor conference room. CEO Ron Owen will serve as keynote speaker.

Owen's 'State of the Union' address will cover recent SAMC accomplishments, current projects, and future improvements. The luncheon will allow former employees an opportunity to stay connected with one another and become better informed on the hospital's current events.

Retired SAMC employees in attendance will be served by Management Council and will receive information about various hospital groups such as our Silver Sneakers program at Living Well Fitness and Senior Discovery. Additionally, the luncheon will serve to recruit hospital volunteers. Organizers of the retiree luncheon hope to make this an annual event. SAMC retirees are asked to RSVP to Human Resources at 334-793-8001 by March 11.
