2016 Medline Pink Glove Dance

University Medical Center of El Paso, Chino Valley and Montgomery Cancer Center take top prizes in raising awareness of breast cancer.

This year marks the 6th 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. The participating healthcare organizations must make their music video and raise at least $2000 for their preferred breast cancer charity. This year, almost 30 teams sent in entries.

University Medical Center of El Paso in Texas was the top pick in the large-bed--over 300 patient beds-category.  The hospital was also the overall grand-prize winner, collecting the most votes in online, public voting. Medline will donate $15,000 to University Medical Center of El Paso's charity of choice Sobreviviendo el Cancer de Seno (Surviving Breast Cancer) Infusion Center.


Chino Valley Medical Center in Chino, California won the small bed--under 300 patient beds--category. This is the second year the hospital has claimed that prize. Its preferred charity-the Let It Be Foundation-won $10,000 from Medline.


Montgomery Cancer Center in Alabama was the top entry in the non-bed--healthcare organizations that don't admit patients overnight, and/or foundations and educational institutions--category. Medline also gave its cancer charity-Cancer Wellness Foundation of Central Alabama--$10,000.


Runners-up for the 2016 Medline Pink Glove Dance include University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences in Little Rock and LewisGale Regional Health System in Salem, Va. (large-bed);  Community Hospital East in Indianapolis and Byron Health Center in Fort Wayne, Ind. (small-bed); and Arlington Cancer Center, in Arlington, Texas and Penn Medicine Department of Community Radiology in Berwyn, Pa. (non-bed). The runners-up received either $5,000 or $2,5000 from Medline for their breast cancer charities.

Watch as nurses from the winning organizations join their colleagues, community members and patients to dance to "Feel Better When I'm Dancin" and "Good to Be Alive," all in the name of raising awareness for breast cancer.
