Lifespan Community Affairs

Team Lifespan

team lifespan

Delivering health with care extends beyond the boundaries of our patient-centered care locations. The vitality of our caring is expressed in our service to our community and is part of our total rewards program.

Team Lifespan enlists our employees to take part in a variety of activities which serve to improve the quality of life in our communities. Whether through participating in a 5k, or volunteering at a community event, health and service is intrinsically part of who we are.

In 2018 we are creating specialized company sponsored fitness events and volunteer projects through collaborations with our community partners. A robust schedule of walking, running and cycling opportunities is available through Working Healthy. Our affiliate-based walking and running captains provide opportunities for employees to prepare for any of our sponsored or noteworthy events. In addition to walkers and runners, Team Lifespan 2018 is forming a cycling division launching with information sessions this spring.

“Team Lifespan, Volunteers” launched during our MLK Day celebrations, and is growing to include a variety of events such as Earth Day Clean Up events, the “I Get Fresh” campaign at local farmers markets, the Rhode Island Mission of Mercy, the annual Season of Giving and more.

Fitness with Team Lifespan

TEAM Lifespan comes together for walks, runs and bicycling. TEAM captains from our hospitals and affiliates provide leadership support for employees who participate. Our goal is to engage employees in the Life and Community and the Health and Wellness aspects of our Total Rewards package. We want to support and encourage regular physical activity for everyone, from those who are sedentary, to regular walkers, runners or cyclists, and to the seasoned athlete. 

Watch for training, education and weekly group activities offered by professionals from the Health and Wellness program. Developing strong relationships and staff camaraderie is an extra bonus!
