After a long journey, we are at a very good place and have everything to look forward to. We have laid the groundwork for a successful future with our new partner PinnacleHealth System in Harrisburg. Our vision of bringing physicians and services back to J.C. Blair is becoming a reality. Through our Pinnacle partnership, we have been able to better meet our mission of providing the right care, at the right time, right here at home where our patients live.
J.C. Blair excels in the services we offer our community. This year, we started a pulmonary rehabilitation program to help those with lung disease improve their health and better cope with their condition. We contracted with Benchmark Therapies to manage the new J.C. Blair Therapy & Wellness Center. We were awarded several grants to further our initiatives in newborn safety, and breast cancer patient navigation. Our Women’s Imaging Center is the first imaging center in the region to offer Digital Breast Tomosynthesis (3D Mammography), the highest quality screening available for the early detection of breast cancer.
The residents in our community have every reason to trust their healthcare to J.C. Blair and have confidence when choosing a J.C. Blair physician or service. That's what we need most to continue down the path to our successful future.
We are grateful to our new partners at PinnacleHealth for their support and confidence in our ability to advance healthcare services in Huntingdon County. We look forward to working together to further strengthen J.C. Blair's reputation as the leading resource for healthcare in Huntingdon County.
