Join women's care providers from FHN for an evening of pizza and
conversation all about you. Our 'Slice of Time' events at Cannova's are so
popular we're once again scheduling two of them! Join us
to learn about the latest and greatest in women's care at FHN.
There will be four short presentations, all of which you'll "attend" without leaving your table:
Don't Fall! – Stephenson County has a much higher rate of death
from falls than the rest of the country, and there's a lot you can do to
help make sure you're not a casualty! You’ll learn about bone density and
strength from folks in our rehab team (talking about exercise to improve
strength and balance, as well as ways to avoid falls), nutrition services (a
good diet for healthy bones), and imaging (how our services help keep
legs strong and healthy).
Complex Care Management
Complex Care Management
at FHN helps people navigate
the medical system, both within FHN and in the community. Learn
about this new effort from Complex Care Manager Rachel Ahrens, who
also works with community partners and organizations to help people
gain the support they need to live their life at home. Find our More
– Dr. Terry Donat will highlight this new
procedure at FHN. This less invasive choice to treat chronic sinusitis and
other sinus conditions is done under local anesthesia, opening up the
sinuses with a small instrument about the size of a ballpoint pen refill.
This procedure offers results that are as good as or better than traditional
sinus surgery, and recovery time is hours rather than days. Find our More
A New Crisis Option
A New Crisis Option – Emergency departments across the
country, including at FHN, are seeing many patients who come in for
psychiatric or substance abuse disorders. Due to the closure of many
behavioral health facilities, there is often no good way to treat these
patients. A new Crisis Stabilization Center, to be located at the FHN Family
Counseling Center, will care for these patients in a much less stressful
environment that is not only more comprehensive, but less expensive.
