Upper Allegheny Health System Offers Array of Support Groups and Clinics at Member Hospitals

Posted on: 03/04/2011

Upper Allegheny Health System (UAHS) today announced a complete schedule of meeting dates, times and locations for various support groups and clinics offered to patients and their loved ones at member hospitals Bradford Regional Medical Center (BRMC) and Olean General Hospital (OGH) for the remainder of the year.

 

“We offer these support groups and clinics for community members to have an outlet and forum to speak with others who are impacted by a similar illness or disease, along with the opportunity to learn more about the topic from speakers and experts,” said Timothy J. Finan, president and CEO of Upper Allegheny Health System and member hospitals Bradford Regional Medical Center and Olean General Hospital.  “These groups are an important component of total patient care. We understand the emotional component when coping with disease and illness can have an impact on physical well being.  We are pleased to be able to offer these services to our patients, their family and friends, as well as to the general public to encourage health and wellness education.”

 

The following is the list of support groups to date, along with their normal meeting times and locations. Both hospitals may offer additional events in the future that aren’t currently listed. Additionally, meeting times are subject to change, and may fluctuate throughout the course of the year.
