WCA Hospital
 

JAMESTOWN, N.Y. (June 17, 2015) – The Jamestown Renaissance Corporation is proud to announce that WCA Hospital will be the presenting sponsor of the 2015 Downtown Jamestown Farmers Market. The farmers market, now in its thirty-seventh year, is held downtown on Cherry Street and provides access to locally grown fruits and vegetables.

The Downtown Jamestown Farmers Market is held every Thursday from noon to 6 pm, June through August. The market ends at 4 pm in September and October.

“Serving as this year's presenting sponsor is perfectly aligned with WCA Hospital's Mission to keep our community healthy and well,” said Betsy T. Wright, FACHE, WCA Hospital President/CEO. “Our goal is to continuously strive to adopt new ways to educate residents on approaches to stay well. Our collaborative partnership with the Jamestown Farmers Market provides a platform to increase community awareness about the value of buying fresh, locally grown produce and our continuing efforts to work together toward creating healthier communities,” said Wright.

Aside from fruits and vegetables, the farmers market also features many other vendors and activities including crafts, lunch vendors, live music, kids activities, and more. New in 2015 is the addition of health care professionals at each market to discuss popular health related topics and trends with the community.

“Each week, health professionals from WCA will be available at the market to inform patrons of the latest services and programs available at our hospital and the benefits of disease prevention and good nutrition,” adds Toni DeAngelo, R.N., WCA Hospital Community Health & Wellness Director. “From free screenings to valuable information on preventing and managing chronic disease, our staff will empower shoppers to make healthy choices that can help them stay well over their life time,” said DeAngelo.
