OGH to present program on advance directives

Posted on: 09/27/2016

Olean General Hospital will present “Advance Directives” Wednesday, October 5 at the Education Center at OGH.

Presented by Joy Lavelle, admissions coordinator, the Pavilion at BRMC, the program will outline how to express healthcare related wishes ahead of time should a patient become too ill or unable to do so. Participants will also have an opportunity to complete an advance directive if they don’t already have one. Advance directives are legal documents that allow a patient to spell out end of life care decisions.

The community breakfast series is free and open to the public. A continental breakfast will be served at 7:45 a.m. with the presentation from 8:15 to 9 a.m. Seating is limited. To make reservations, call Jenny Territo, OGH community outreach coordinator, at 716/375-7518 or email jterrito@uahs.org.

The final program in this year’s breakfast series, Friends and Family CPR, will be held November 2.

Upper Allegheny Health System is the parent company of Bradford Regional Medical Center and Olean General Hospital. An integration of two prominent community hospitals in Southwestern New York state and Northwestern Pennsylvania, Upper Allegheny Health System’s goal is the enhancement of each hospital’s mission of care and service to their respective communities with the common goal of improving care, enhancing clinical programs and providing best-in-class service for various health needs.
