“We appreciate everyone who helped make this Fit4life event successful,” said Kevin Smith, director of HR at Indian Path, who coordinated the event along with JMH’s HR director, Jackie Phipps. “Everybody who participated, from the facilities up through the finals, had a great time. Congratulations to all of our facility tournament winners and especially our overall champions from Johnston Memorial Hospital and our second-place team from Norton Community Hospital!”
