"In an effort to continue our mission to serve our community’s health care needs, we jumped at the chance to provide first aid for concert goers at one of the largest community events of the year."
ATLANTA (August 12, 2015) – Salude, a healthcare provider that will redefine transitional care, has partnered with the Suwanee community to provide support and health care services for some City of Suwanee events. For the Suwanee Annual August Concert and Wing Fest on Saturday, August 8, where thousands came to Town Center Park to listen to bands, The 101, The Athens Ban, Brent Daniel and Soul Asylum, Salude was a public art sponsor and provided first aid for the event. Four Salude employees were stationed at a first aid tent to provide concert goers with immediate first aide when needed.
“Staying active in our community is a great opportunity to connect with our friends and neighbors as well as new community members,” said Salude CEO Dr. Alan Wang. “In an effort to continue our mission to serve our community’s health care needs, we jumped at the chance to provide first aid for concert goers at one of the largest community events of the year. We hope to continue to give benefit to our patients in need of transitional and physical recovery care as well as become an even more valuable healthcare resource to our community.”
“Salude has quickly become a great community partner for the City of Suwanee,” said Suwanee Assistant City Manager Denise Brinson. “We appreciate that Salude went above and beyond in response to Suwanee’s one percent for art developer initiative and continues to provide support for public art as a Suwanee SculpTour sponsor. We were happy to welcome Salude as a public art sponsor to our annual August Concert and Wing Festival and appreciate the first aid service they provided onsite.”
This is the 11th year for Suwanee’s annual August Concert. Last year, the community added the wing festival to the concert experience. Salude Business Office Administrator, C.J. Caballero, also participated in the wing-eating contest where the winner had to eat 10 wings.
Salude will also participate later this year in Suwanee’s Trek or Treat on October 31 at Suwanee Creek Park from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. and Jolly Holly-day on December 4 at Town Center Park happening at 6:30 p.m.
Salude recently celebrated its first anniversary with more than 80 team members including administrators, clinical staff, nurses, doctors, dining staff and concierge staff. In February, Salude was recognized for being a significant contributor to the arts in this community with an ArtWorks! Gwinnett Fusion Award.
