Schuyler Hospital staff sheds 432 pounds together

From March through May this spring, 50 Schuyler Hospital staffers teamed up for their own “Biggest Loser”-inspired weight loss program, and lost a total of 432.5 pounds!The three “biggest losers” overall shed 14.5%, 15.8% and 16.7% of their total weight! Most participants plan to continue on their journey to better health.“The response to this program by our employees has been overwhelming,” said Jann Cady, CNO/COO for Schuyler Hospital. “Their phenomenal success shows just how dedicated these employees have been to getting healthier, and how much the team approach is a key motivator.”Thanks to registration fees and “missed weigh-in” fees, the program also generated $650 for the Schuyler Hospital Auxiliary, who were surprised and thrilled with the donation.For more information, visit www.schuylerhospital.org.
