Hope Lives Here

September is Childhood Cancer Awareness Month. Nearly 16,000 kids are diagnosed with cancer each year in the United States. With that in mind, we’re revisiting the many ways our cancer care team helps patients live a full life with cancer until they’re living without it. Revisit our video to see how nurse navigators at the Sue Ann Wortman Cancer Center made treatment more manageable for Chris Baggott.

Recognizing Suicide Prevention Week

Today kicks off Suicide Prevention Week. We’re working hard to address mental health issues across the region we serve, and Hancock Health Foundation is taking the lead through its Mental Health Campaign. Thanks to the generosity and support of so many across our community, RISE Recovery and Wellness (Hancock Health’s first substance use treatment program) is open and fully staffed.
  • We have a psychiatrist, nurse practitioner, therapist, medical assistant, and case manager.
  • Individual therapy (group therapy is scheduled to begin in early fall).
  • Medication assisted treatment for opioid use disorder.
  • Integrated behavioral healthcare with co-occurring treatment curriculum.
  • Therapists provide cognitive behavioral therapy, dialectical behavioral therapy, and trauma focused therapy.
These programs are saving lives, and we’re excited to see them continue to grow and expand.
