RHI Volunteers Dan Kirchgessner, Holly Welch, Dave Mace, and Dan Woloszyn.
RHI's Community Benefit program is focused on carrying our mission outside the walls of our hospital to serve our community and the top health needs identified in the recently conducted Community Health Needs Assessment (CHNA).
One specific health need the CHNA identified as significant in our community is the prevalence of obesity and diabetes. In America’s Health Rankings, Indiana ranks 41st for diabetes and 40th for obesity.  Both are known risk factor for stroke and contribute to risks associated with falls and other injuries.

To help promote access to physical activity for high school students, RHI team members partnered with our wonderful colleagues at IU Health on Monday, April 22nd at Shortridge High School to provide free sports physical screens for IPS students from local schools.


Volunteer roles included greeting, screening for vision and measuring the height, weight and blood pressure of student athletes.


Because of these collaborative efforts, we have helped 162 Marion County high school students stay active by passing the required physicals that will allow them to stay active and participate in sports activities.

  • RHI volunteers Holly Welch and Dan Woloszyn work with students before physical.
