Caring is our Calling ‐ Celebrate National Hospital Week — May 6 ‐ 12

National Hospital Week celebrates hospitals and the women and men who support the health and wellbeing of their communities through dedication and compassionate care from the heart. Take this year’s National Hospital Week as an opportunity to thank all of the dedicated individuals – physicians, nurses, therapists, engineers, food service workers, volunteers, administrators and so many more – for their contributions.

May is Mental Health Month

Treatment is the answer. Talk to us today about the solutions available to help you take the first step towards recovery. There are times in everyone’s life when personal problems and challenges may interfere with their quality of life. Our goal is to provide assistance to individuals and families who experience emotional and coping problems and those who have serious and persistent mental illness. Services are available for children, adolescents and adults experiencing a wide range of problems. These services qualify under the Sliding Fee Scale. Call CCCHC for more information, 7018737788.

Healthy Tidbit

Greek yogurt can be substituted for mayo (in tuna and chicken salad). Add some herbs and a squeeze of lemon juice, and they’ll taste almost identical. This swap will save on calories and fat and provide an extra dose of protein.

Celebrate National Nurses Week — May 6 ‐ 12

During National Nurses Week, area healthcare providers would like to extend a special thank you to our nurses, as they continue to provide the highest level of quality care to their patients. Our nurses deserve special recognition for their efforts to inspire, innovate, and influence every day!

DUI Classes Offered

DUI Classes are being offered May 4‐7th at Coal Country Community Health Center Beulah Clinic. Please contact the clinic at 7018737788 for more information or to register.

April 16 ‐ 27 is National Healthcare Decisions Day

We plan so many aspects of our lives, yet we often don’t think about how we want to live toward the end of our lives. What is most important to you. If you were injured, needed medical care, and unable to speak for yourself, who would make important medical decisions for you? Take the time to talk with your loved ones about your wishes. Visit www.nhdd.org for more information.
