Vim & Vigor - Fall 2018 - Community Healthcare - 2

COMMUNITY MESSAGE

THE BEST VASCULAR
CARE, CLOSE TO HOME
Community Healthcare System offers
advanced technology, caring human touch

Serena Williams' story in this issue shines a spotlight on the treatment of vascular disease and
experiencing health challenges at any age. At the
hospitals of Community Healthcare System, we recognize
that the combination of advances in technology and an
expert staff with a caring human touch go hand in hand.
Beginning on page 6, you can read about new technology
and the processes in place to treat patients with heart and
lung conditions. Robot-assisted surgeries and minimally invasive techniques performed by our highly skilled physicians
are helping patients recover sooner with fewer complications.
Stroke is the second leading cause of death due to vascular disease, right behind
heart attack. Patients, including Patricia Fointno, are benefiting from advanced
neuroendovascular care available close to home at Community Hospital (page
50). The availability of such sophisticated technology and expertise in Northwest
Indiana is a game changer when timely treatment is essential to recovery.
Maria Rivera has counted on St. Catherine Hospital for quality care through
the years (page 52). Three tiny incisions and her doctor's expertise using the
da Vinci® Surgical System got her back on her feet and back to work in just three
short weeks after a major procedure.
Miller resident Kenneth Edgington is a steelworker, husband and father of
two who beat the odds and survived two life-threatening infections, pneumonia and sepsis (page 54). He tells about the expert timely care he received at
St. Mary Medical Center.
We want you to know we are working harder than ever to expand and bring the
best possible care to residents in our Northwest Indiana communities.
