Vim & Vigor - Fall 2017 - Community Healthcare - 2

COMMUNITY MESSAGE

BRINGING WORLD-CLASS
CARE TO YOUR DOORSTEP
Battling cancer is difficult. Kathy Bates,
the Oscar-winning actress featured on our
cover, has battled it twice. For Bates, the
battle continues, as she is now struggling with lymphedema, the painful condition she developed after
undergoing a double mastectomy.
When it comes to cancer and its devastating side
effects, the hospitals of Community Healthcare System
are ready to fight every battle with you. We offer leadingedge cancer treatments with advanced technology, clinical
trials, highly skilled cancer specialists and nurse navigators
to guide you every step of your journey. You can read more about the personalized care we provide regarding lymphedema treatments on page 4.
On page 6, read about how cancer patients look to our oncology nurse
navigators to help them access the multifocused care and support they need to
get through treatment. Specially trained nurse navigators connect with the surgeons, oncologists, radiation oncologists, radiologists, respiratory therapists,
pulmonologists and other resources necessary to make sure our patients get
the best care possible.
We are ready to help you and your family fight for your health in other areas,
too. Infants are sleeping safer in their cribs through a new partnership with
the Hobart Fire Department. St. Mary Medical Center Emergency Services staff
members are teaching safe sleep practices to responders and they, in turn, are
educating parents on what is best for baby. Turn to page 50 for more.
Community Hospital recently completed a multiphase, $20 million construction
project that brings in advanced technologies and enables intricate spine, cardiothoracic and heart valve surgeries previously only found at metropolitan academic
medical centers. Read about it on page 52.
Patients unable to access proper care because of a lack of transportation can
count on St. Catherine Hospital for van service (page 54). The Care Van program
is a great way to meet the transportation needs of patients and go the extra mile
to better serve the community.
At the hospitals of Community Healthcare System, you will find high-quality
care that has made us a leading choice in Northwest Indiana with the added
convenience of being close to home.
