#Smile On With Westmed

#Smile On With Westmed

“When you are smiling, the whole world smiles with you.” – Louis Daniel Armstrong

We’re kicking off our #SmileOn Campaign in honor of Patient Experience Week April 22-26, 2019.

Did you know smiling is good for your mind, body and overall wellbeing?  In fact, the act of smiling actually impacts the receptors in your brain that affect health, and happiness.  And most importantly, smiling is contagious! When a person has a smile on their face, research proves that it is difficult to make eye contact with that person without mimicking the joyous expression on their face.

That’s why throughout April and May the Westmed team will have a smile on our faces as we embody our organization’s core value:  “Welcoming”.  Across all of our Westmed Medical Group offices in Westchester and Connecticut, we will be rolling out a “Smile ON” campaign as a reminder that being welcoming, and passing a smile on to our patients and our colleagues can really brighten their day.  To bring this campaign to life, each of our front desk reception areas will display blue Westmed Smile Lights, which we hope will light up your face with a smile, too!

Remember to ask your front desk associate about our Smile ON lights, and don’t forget to pass the smile on to others.  After all, it’s good for your health!
