Snapshot: IU North employees’ day of service at Coxhall Gardens in Carmel


On May 30, nearly 200 IU Health employees participated in an annual Day of Service project at Coxhall Gardens in Carmel.

Throughout the day, volunteers installed three bike racks, a bike maintenance station and several handicap parking signs.

In addition, hospital associates worked alongside a handful of master gardeners to plant a complete 26-bed ABC Children’s Garden.

IU Health North Hospital partnered with the Hamilton County Parks Department for the project with the intention of providing new park equipment and making park improvements that would encourage community members to get outside and get active. Statewide, more than 2,000 IU Health team members participated in the Day of Service at 19 parks and two schools in order to improve access to physical activity and fight obesity.
