Vim & Vigor - Summer 2018 - Community Healthcare - 2

COMMUNITY MESSAGE

EMBRACING NEW IDEAS
AND TREATMENTS
Innovative techniques help improve lives

With Erin Andrews' story of her cervical cancer
diagnosis in this issue of Vim & Vigor magazine,
we take a closer look at women's health and fitness. At the hospitals of Community Healthcare System,
we are excited to be able to put new ideas to work with
treatment options that give our patients hope. We are
embracing new concepts and new techniques to make your
life and your health better.
Breast cancer continues to be one of the leading causes
of cancer death among women. Predicting who will develop
breast cancer and who will survive it continues to be a challenge. What we do know
is that the earlier breast cancer is detected, the better it is for patients and their
chances of a positive outcome (page 4).
Studies show that regular exercise and physical activity are important to the
physical and mental health of everyone, including older adults. We have developed
a comprehensive sports medicine program to best meet the needs of the athlete in
all of us (page 6).
At St. Mary Medical Center, we are looking for new ways to help prevent hospital visits with the Community Paramedicine program (page 50). Patients with
chronic health conditions, including chronic heart failure or chronic obstructive
pulmonary disease, have a paramedic periodically check on them in their home to
help them remain on track with their health management.
Highland resident Fortunetta Brack suffered for years with acid reflux until she
found a new minimally invasive procedure called LINX, which was being done close
to home at Community Hospital (page 52). When LINX's small band of magnetic
beads is positioned around the patient's esophagus at the lower muscle, it acts as
a natural barrier to reflux and helps to eliminate gastroesophageal reflux disease,
or GERD.
Heart disease is a leading cause of death in both women and men. When Michael
Hurley took a free cardiovascular risk assessment through St. Catherine Hospital,
it turned out to be a lifesaving decision (page 54).
With new technologies and new ways to deliver a positive healthcare experience,
let the hospitals and the outpatient facilities of Community Healthcare System be
your first choice for you and your family's medical needs.
