We’re celebrating the opening of our Urgent Care Center with our largest free Block Party and Health Festival yet on June 18 from 5 to 8 p.m. at St. Vincent’s One Nineteen. Like every year, everyone is invited.

Our 10th annual event is poised to be our biggest Block Party yet.

Back by popular demand, the band Act of Congress, which has performed for Disney, NPR and as cultural ambassadors for the U.S. State Department, will present a live concert at our free community event.

In addition to our ever-popular Block Party activities that draw area residents annually, there will also be food vendors, free health screenings, fitness demonstrations and lots of activities for the whole family. There will be a rock wall and an inflatable obstacle course, along with my personal favorite, hot air balloon rides.

Our St. Vincent’s One Nineteen associates have been planning this Block Party for months. Last year, we celebrated St. Vincent’s One Nineteen’s 10th anniversary, and this year our goal to bring you “health care like no other” was realized with the opening of our Urgent Care Center.

This event offers us a chance to not only have a lot of fun with area residents, but also celebrate the community we serve.

Our June 18 gathering also gives you a chance to learn more about the full range of wellness services we offer, from spa to fitness, nutrition to physical therapy, seminars to physician offices, camps to diagnostics and now thanks to the Urgent Care Center and expansion, ambulatory surgery, urgent care and even more medical offices. That additional office space allows us to extend our specialty offerings to best fit the needs of area residents.

Come celebrate the opening of our Urgent Care Center and the 10th annual Block Party on Saturday, June 18. If you can’t come then, drop by to browse the spa gift shop, ask about year-round children’s activities including numerous summer camps or enroll in our fitness program. We’re excited to show you how St. Vincent’s One Nineteen is commitment to health care is like no other.
