In today’s healthcare environment, we don’t often hear about companies offering more benefits at less cost. But for employees of Redmond-based Hayden Homes, the cost of a skin cancer screening co-pay was one less health care expense they needed to absorb this year. On September 28, Central Oregon employees of Hayden Homes received free skin cancer screenings along with paid leave during their workday to undergo the screening, which took place at Bend Dermatology. The event was so well-attended that Hayden Homes is partnering with Bend Dermatology to schedule a second employee screening.
After a successful fundraiser and large donation, Redmond’s public art committee is planning new projects in the city. Earlier this summer, the committee collected about $6,700 from an art fundraiser that featured 20 painted sculptures of rockchucks, the yellow-bellied marmots found in Central Oregon. In addition, Redmond-based developer Hayden Homes recently donated about $6,600.
