Providence Mission Hospital Gifts 1,000 Free Multisport Helmets To Local Kids

Save the Brain Program Organized by Hospital’s Trauma Team Helps Protect Community from Head Injuries

Providence Mission Hospital is proud to announce that its Trauma Injury Prevention team recently gave away the 1,000th free multisport helmet as part of their Save the Brain program.

Launched last November, the program helps to protect children in our community from head injuries. Traumatic injuries have increased substantially since the start of the pandemic at both emergency departments and the hospital’s Level II adult and pediatric trauma center located on the Mission Viejo campus.

“I am especially proud of this program because it demonstrates our commitment to service and dedication to programs that keep our South Orange County community members safe and healthy,” said Seth Teigen, chief executive of Providence Mission Hospital.  “We’re so grateful to Karen and George Thagard for providing financial support and enabling our team to bring this important program to our community.”

Devoted to injury prevention, the Trauma Injury Prevention team regularly participates in events to provide important health and safety information, and now the helmets are another way to make our community safer.
