Kick off the fall season right by participating in the HCCH Pumpkin Decorating Contest. All Proceeds will go to the Harrison County Cancer Transporation Fund!
Registration is now open for Harrison County Community Hospital's twelfth annual Miles for Miles Cancer Walk, formerly Hospital Hill Fun Run/Walk held on Saturday, October 9, 2021. The event raises funds for the Harrison County Cancer Transportation Fund, which provides financial assistance to Harrison County residents who have been diagnosed with cancer and are traveling for medical appointments.
At HCCH, we understand that undergoing an MRI Exam can be intimidating, as many of our patients do not discover they are claustrophobic until they began their exam.
In 2019 an estimated 42 million exams were performed in the United States! With a population of roughly 330 million, that means that -on average- about one in eight US residents got an MRI in 2019. If you know 500 people, then -statistically- of your immediate pool of acquaintances, roughly 64 people had MRIs in 2019. We may think of MRI as a rare or exceptional diagnostic tool, but it has become commonplace.
Seven area high school juniors and seniors recently spent a week of summer vacation exploring careers in health care at Harrison County Community Hospital. Applicants selected for HCCH's Health Careers Boot Camp, held July 19-23, allowed students to job shadow in eight clinical departments and interact with staff in several other departments.
Pickren brings to the board exceptional expertise in care coordination, quality reporting/improvement, and implementing evidence-based practices.
While the year 2020 was quite uncertain, one thing remained clear. We would continue to support the cancer patients of Harrison County through continued fundraising.
