CONCORD TOWNSHIP, Ohio, November 13, 2014 - Approximately 300,000 pacemakers and implantable cardioverter defibrillators (ICD) are implanted in U.S. patients each year. With the high volume of devices in circulation, demand is increasing for the removal and/or replacement of the devices' wires—called leads—that deliver life-saving "shocks" to regulate heart rhythm. Lake Health is the only community-based hospital in Northeast Ohio to offer the complex and delicate procedure.
CONCORD TOWNSHIP, OH, October 23, 2014 - It's no trick – we want your treats! According to Sharon Minjares, a Lake Health registered dietitian and director of the Wellness Institute, eating large amounts of highly processed, high fat and high sugar foods, such as Halloween candy, can lead to overweight and obesity, which can put both children and adults at risk for chronic disease like high blood pressure, high cholesterol, diabetes and joint problems.
Remove the temptation of extra Halloween candy in the house by dropping it off at Lake Health's Wellness Institute between 9 am and 5 pm, November 3-6. The Wellness Institute is located in the TriPoint Medical Center Physician Pavilion, 7580 Auburn Road, Suite 201, Concord Township.
All donated candy will be sent to troops overseas with the help of Operation Gratitude. For more information, call the Wellness Institute at 440-375-8735.
