Charles Cole Memorial Hospital joins other health care facilities across the country to celebrate National Hospital Week this week.

A week of activities is planned at Charles Cole Memorial Hospital to celebrate this national observance.

The hospital’s four Wellness Centers will be open to the public, free of charge, all week. Wellness Centers are located in Port Allegany, Smethport, Emporium and on the hospital campus in Coudersport and all have a variety of aerobic and strength training equipment.

An open house will be held from 3 to 6 p.m. May 13 at the Bowman Health Center, formerly Misty Valley Health Center, in Smethport. Community members are invited to meet Dr. David Kulling and take advantage of free chair massages, blood pressure, body fat and bone density screenings. New and returning patients can schedule appointments with Dr. Kulling at 814/887-5395.

A breast cancer panel discussion will be held May 13 at Charles Cole Memorial Hospital in Coudersport. Every Woman: A Breast Cancer Panel Discussion, which will be held from 6 to 8 p.m. at the Wellness Center, is designed for women of all ages and their loved ones. Panelists include Dr. Patrick Dorion, pathology; Dr. Hans Baerwald, radiation oncology; Dr. Michael Haraschak, general surgery; Dr. William Muuse, oncology; a radiologist; Tammy Huey, CRNP, oncology; Michelle Burdick, breast health specialist nurse; and oncology nurses Theresa Robinson, Marcia Austin, Valerie Tinder, Lynn Collins, and Kathy McCaslin. For more information, or to RSVP, call 274-5246.

Keeping health care in a positive light is part of the tradition of National Hospital Week, a celebration of care that dates back to 1921. That year, a magazine editor in Chicago suggested an annual open house for health care where a skeptical public could have see first hand the important work performed inside hospitals. The idea spread across the country and helped change the perception about hospitals from places of illness to places of healing. Today, National Hospital Week is the nation’s largest health care celebration.
