Health Partners staff and Board of Directors work to make sure that everyone who comes to Health Partners feels welcome. We are a very close group, and support each other in everything. Pastor Steve Merki, a member of our board, was affected by ALS. The “Ice Bucket Challenge” has raised money and awareness for this disease in hopes that we may find a cure. In support of Pastor Merki, many staff and board members gathered outside of Health Partners to do the Ice Bucket Challenge ourselves. Watch the video below to see how it went!
