On August 14th Adirondack Health & Wellness teamed up with Stat Staff for a company event -“A Day at the Track”. This event was held at Saratoga Springs Race Track- and it was held to remind our staff nurses how much we appreciate them and all they do for others. A nurse’s duties and title will vary depending on educational background, certifications and licenses. In the United States alone, there are about 2.6 million nursing professionals. Even in tough economic times, the demand for qualified nurses is still strong. The reason is clear: hospitals and patients recognize the need for very special people that can take on such a laborious duty with a passion for serving and healing and we acknowledge and appreciate them for that !
For those who haven’t been to Saratoga Race Course, which has a capacity of 50,000, is at thoroughbred horse racing track in Saratoga Springs NY . Opened in 1863, it is the third oldest racetrack in the US. Filmmakers and other media have sought out Saratoga and the race course as both the main focus or as a set.
