Hayes Green Beach Memorial Hospital annually celebrates National Men’s Health Month with its annual Golf, Grilling and Guys’ Health event Father’s Day weekend at AL!VE. The free health fair from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m., Saturday, June 18, features family-oriented activities including golf, dodge ball and cross fit competitions; healthy living information and screenings; physician conversations; children’s activities and a summer cookout.
Hayes Green Beach Memorial Hospital has held its annual HealthFest event for the past 15-plus years. Over time, HGB has realized a need to approach the health fair differently and, rather than hosting a one-time event, has decided to begin spreading the screening activities and information throughout the year as part of a new HealthQuest program.
Hayes Green Beach Memorial Hospital and Sparrow Health System are hosting a free interactive heart health event Thursday, Feb. 19, featuring lunch, a presentation on cardiovascular disease in women, blood pressure checks and educational information for the mid-Michigan community.
The free annual lunch and learn event is from 11:30 a.m. until 1 p.m., at AL!VE, 800 W. Lawrence Ave., in Charlotte.
Hayes Green Beach Memorial Hospital has expanded its award-winning hospital volunteer program to include newly added roles at AL!VE, its experience-based, destination health park. Applications are now being accepted.
With more than 150 active hospital volunteers, HGB’s Generosity Guild provides approximately 85 shifts per week for eight different types of volunteers. This gives volunteers flexibility to make it easier to donate their time in support of their community hospital.

Hayes Green Beach Memorial Hospital (HGB) offers a complete complement of rehabilitation services, including physical therapy, to meet mid-Michigan’s needs.
