INB staff, along with the American Heart Association, delivered little red hats to hospitals across Central Illinois during Heart Health Month.  The hats were for all newborns as a reminder that heart health is important from the day we are born.

Hats were provided to: Springfield’s Memorial Medical Center and HSHS St. John’s Hospital, Abraham Lincoln Memorial Hospital in Lincoln, St. Mary’s Hospital in Decatur, Passavant Area Hospital in Jacksonville, HSHS St. Francis Hospital in Litchfield, OSF and Unity Point Health Methodist in Peoria, and Advocate BroMenn Medical Center in Bloomington-Normal.  On Valentine’s Day, we delivered hats to Carle Foundation Hospital in Urbana, making it an extra special day.

Here’s a rundown of the local news stories:
