Internal Newsletter or Intranet Site Article Sample

Updated on September 4, 2016

As the public relations practitioner for a local hospital, you have been asked to prepare an article for the internal newsletter (or employee intranet site) about a new health and fitness center opening in a wing of your building that used to house a clinic that has since been relocated to a new building. A member of your board of directors generously donated $100,000 to the hospital for the renovation effort. Employees will be able to use the facility 24 hours a day, free of charge. One of the nurse managers who used to oversee stroke patient therapy programs will assume the directorship of the fitness center.

Health and Fitness Center Renovations

One of Mercy Hospital’s Board of Directors had decided to anonymously donate $100,000 towards the renovation of our brand new health and fitness center. The health and fitness center will be located in the East wing of the hospital where the clinic used to reside. When the renovation of the East wing is complete the health and fitness center will open and remain open to all employees 24 hours per day and 7 days per week. When finished the health and fitness center will have a fully stocked gym, a yoga/dance studio, lap pool, health counseling office hours, health and fitness monthly workshops, cooldown zone, locker rooms, and a raw fresh juice bar. The health and fitness center will be available to all employees at no cost, though we do ask that employees clean up after themselves in order to keep the center in good condition for all employees.

Health and Fitness Center Operations

The health and fitness center will be overseen by the nurse manager who used to oversee stroke patient therapy programs. The director of the health and fitness center, Jean Rogers, will be available for questions, assistance and suggestions prior to the opening of the health and fitness center. Jean Rogers has this to say on the health and fitness center:

“The new health and fitness center will offer all employees the tools they need to keep themselves fit and healthy. The center will have health and fitness workshops once a month on a variety of topics. If anyone knows someone who would like to offer a workshop, please contact me at”.
