Mike Uhl, president of Atrium Medical Center, said the trail is just one way that the hospital is striving to build a healthier community.
“Our vision for Premier Health as well as Atrium Medical Center is to continue our mission to build healthier communities and this is just one way we are giving back to the community to do that.”
He added that the trail will “continue to attract people to walk, run and socialize and enjoy the great outdoors.”
Uhl said the final leg of the trail was completed in large part from a donation from Gemma Power Systems. Gemma is the Engineering-Procurement-Construction contractor for NTE Energy’s Middletown Energy Center being constructed on Cincinnati-Dayton Road.
Dan Ward, project manager for Gemma Power Systems, said the company was glad to be a part of a project that will benefit the health and well-being of the community.
“It’s been a very good collective effort between Atrium and ourselves. Every time we go do a project we try to give back to the community and this is one of the ways we wanted to do it by finishing up the walking trail,” he said.
