DENNISON -- Trinity Hospital Twin City staff gathered to commemorate Earth Day by planting a native Dogwood tree near the hospital's front parking lot April 20. A special Earth Day reading and prayer were offered as part of the brief ceremony.

"The hospital Swing Bed Program staff and I wanted to plant a tree not only to recognize that we are committed to helping our patients get on the road to recovery but also to help recover resources that have been provided to us by Mother Earth," shared Dr. Galen Durose, II, MD, director of the Swing Bed Program at Trinity Hospital Twin City.

Trinity Hospital Twin City's Swing Bed Program provides medical care, occupational therapy, physical therapy, wound care and other services to patients who need skilled rehabilitation services (after a hospital stay and/or surgery) before they transition home.
