2015 Medline Pink Glove Dance

Infirmary Health and Chino Valley take top prizes in raising awareness of breast cancer.

This year marks the 5th anniversary of the Medline Pink Glove Dance. Ever since Providence St. Vincent Medical Center posted their now-viral video, hospitals around the world have used music, dance and a touch of fun spread the word about breast cancer. Through the years, over 200,000 healthcare professionals, community members, and breast cancer survivors have shaken, shimmied and waved those pink-gloved hands. The winning organizations receive $10,000 from Medline to award to a charity supporting breast cancer research or awareness.

There are multiple winners in this year's contest. Infirmary Health in Mobile, Alabama was picked as the top entry in the large-bed--over 300 patient beds--category. Chino Valley Medical Center in Chino, California was picked in as the top entry in the small bed--under 300 patient beds--category. Strathroy Middlesex General Hospital Foudation in Strathroy, Ontario was picked as the top entry in the non-bed--healthcare organizations that don't admit patients overnight, and/or foundations and educational institutions--category.

Large bed runners-up were Baptist Health Paducah and LewisGale Regional Health System. Small bed runners-up were University Medical Center of Princeton and Pocono Medical Center. Non-bed runners-up were Baptist Health Montgomery and Sonoma West Medical Foundation.

Watch as nurses from the winning hospitals and foundation join their colleagues, friends, and neighbors to dance to two ubiquitous pop hits, all in the name of raising awareness for breast cancer.
