Today we shine a spotlight on Lutheran Medical Center, a proud supporter of the Medical Center Shop at Young AmeriTowne Belmar.
The AmeriTowne Medical Center is charged with keeping its community healthy, a task that
complements the mission of its sponsor, Lutheran Medical Center. Celebrating over 100 years of quality care, Lutheran Medical Center has been a staple of the west Denver community since 1905. In addition to providing traditional health-care services, Lutheran Medical Center specializes in care for seniors, new families, cancer treatment, and behavioral health. These programs and other quality initiatives have enabled the hospital to receive the Healthgrades “America’s Best 100 Hospitals” award for the last two years.
Lutheran Medical Center has been an important partner of Young Americans Center since 2002. When the Belmar AmeriTowne location opened in 2004, Lutheran Medical Center provided posters, props, and uniforms for the new Medical Center shop. Their support continues to ensure that students visiting AmeriTowne enjoy the real world experience of working in a Medical Center for a day. Medical Center Health Technicians and Doctors hand out symptom cards to citizens throughout Young AmeiTowne. “Sick” citizens then visit the Medical Center to receive care. Health Technicians check the patient’s height, weight, temperature, and blood pressure. Doctors look up the symptoms on a diagnostic computer and then explain the disease to the patient. Finally, a student Manager oversees the entire process for quality control.
Thank you Lutheran Medical Center for inspiring and preparing young people for the 21st century workforce!
