If you ever need motivation to work out, look no further than Coronado resident Aida Baker. Baker celebrates her 100th birthday this March, making her the oldest member of the Sewall Healthy Living Center at Sharp Coronado Hospital. But Baker doesn’t let her age define how much she gets her body moving — she works out three times a week.
Baker has been affiliated with Sharp Coronado Hospital since 1980, when she first became a volunteer. Over the years, she acquired more than 10,000 volunteer hours answering phones and helping the chaplains distribute the eucharist (or Holy Communion) to patients throughout the hospital. Baker says Sharp Coronado Hospital is a gem to the community and it has been wonderful for her to watch it grow over the years.
