Medical Center Moment - March 2017

by -

The medical center is gearing up for an April filled with community activity. 

Watch your mailboxes for our spring Always Caring magazine, coming out in early April.  We first published this in 2016 and plan on publishing it twice a year — spring and fall.  It is a way for us to share patient experience stories, as well as give you important information about the care and services at the medical center.  In the upcoming edition, there is a wonderful story about Jefferson resident Nancy Morris and the chemotherapy care she is receiving at the medical center, less than 5 minutes from her home.

On April 10, I’ll be participating in an informational meeting at Jefferson’s City Hall about “Effects of Health Care Legislation on Greene County.”  The event begins at 7 p.m., and I’ll be joined by Chief Nurse Executive Katie Heldt and Genesis Development CEO Terry Johnson.

Then on April 22,  the medical center is set to once again sponsor the survivor reception at Relay for Life.  This is always a special event for survivors and their caregivers, and we are happy to be the host.  Relay for Life is jam-packed with fun and encouraging activities.  It’s fun to be a part of something that raises money for a great cause we can all support.  

Also in April, I have another Community Coffee scheduled  at the Scranton Community Center at 7:30 a.m. on April 26.  I always enjoy the opportunity to share healthcare updates that impact our community.  These coffees are a great way to interact with community members in a meaningful way.  Please plan to join me in Scranton.

As we involve ourselves in community activities, we never lose sight of the importance of partnering with providers and specialists  who are committed to providing the best care to every patient, every time, so that we can contribute to the well-being of the communities we serve on a daily basis.  We are Always Here, Always Caring

Thank you for your support and for entrusting us with your care.


Always Here, Always Caring,

Carl Behne, CEO
