(SitNews) Ketchikan, Alaska - In recognition of National Hospital Week, National Nursing Home Week and other health care celebrations in May, Ketchikan General Hospital will host its first annual Passport to Health event on Friday, May 13th, from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. starting in the KGH main lobby.

Part scavenger hunt, part health fair, guests will receive a watertight first-aid box, a passport, and a map to destinations within the hospital. As destinations are visited, passports will be stamped and free items given to fill the first-aid box. After traveling to all of the destinations, guests will have a personal first-aid kit.

Participating KGH departments will offer free health information, giveaways and tours. “It’s a great way to meet our caregivers, get better acquainted with our hospital, and have a little fun,” said Patrick J. Branco, CEO and Chief Mission Officer. “And, guests will take home a free first-aid kit, something everyone should have.”
