Today, Monday, April 28 at 7 p.m., Boy Scout Troop 55 from Lemoyne will volunteer their service for the PinnacleHealth Heart Failure Center on the Community Campus
. Through the generosity of the PinnacleHealth Foundation, the Heart Failure Center was able to purchase two raised wooden gardens. The gardens will be used to grow herbs and vegetables for heart failure patients, both as a teaching tool and also for patients that are unable to afford healthy foods. Troop 55 will be assembling the gardens as a service project.
The PinnacleHealth Heart Failure Center coordinates care with patients’ cardiologists and other physicians to assist them with self-management of their disease process, maximizing quality of life and reducing hospital admissions. The Heart Failure Center is located on the 2nd floor, Bloom Outpatient Center, PinnacleHealth Community Campus, 4310 Londonderry Road, Harrisburg. There is a second location on the PinnacleHealth Harrisburg Campus as well.
