Pledge For Peace – October 17, 2023

Salem Health Hospitals & Clinics Sponsored and Organized a Pledge For Peace Community-Wide Event!

Following the dramatic rise of verbal and physical assaults within the healthcare environment, Salem Health Hospital’s & Clinics jumped into action and created a Harmful Words and Actions Committee who are committed to addressing and reducing these abusive behaviors through education.

Featured Guest Speakers: Cheryl Nester Wolfe, CEO Salem Health Hospital’s & Clinics, Paige Clarkson, Marion County District Attorney, and Ann S. Kelly, Founder/Director Hands & Words Are Not For Hurting Project®.

Marion County and Salem Community Leaders were invited to join Salem Health leaders, providers, and employees at Salem Hospital for the special event.

The group of over 50 people gathered to take the Purple Hands Pledge® to end Abuse, Violence, Self-Harm & Suicide: “I Will Not Use My Hands Or My Words For Hurting Myself Or Others®.”

We are forever grateful for the overwhelming amount of support we received from all in attendance!  

“We are so grateful to Salem Health’s leadership for organizing this important community-wide event to encourage all of our citizens to do the right thing by aspiring to live by these 14 words.”
— Ann S. Kelly, Founder/Executive Director
