Dealing with stress or feelings of loneliness this holiday season? The Cleveland Clinic's wellness coordinator gives simple ways to beat the holiday blues.
“Fitness, nutrition, mind, body and spirit are all connected,” said Hillcrest Employee Wellness Coordinator and RN, Rose Hosler. She suggests five, low- to no-cost ways that improve overall well-being and keep stress levels in check. 1. Take Time to Breathe: Sit quietly for one minute, breathing in through the nose and out through the mouth. You could do this while driving to and from work, before sitting down to eat, or at bedtime. The Benefit: Research shows taking deep breaths four times a day improves cognitive function by 20 percent. “Just step back.

Men are particularly at risk if the breast cancer gene (BRCA2) runs in their family.
The focus of Breast Cancer Awareness efforts are focused on women -- the ribbons are pink, after all. But men can get breast cancer too. Patch sat down with a few local experts about male breast cancer: Patch: Why is it important to talk about male breast cancer? Dr. Lee: It's important because men don't think they can get breast cancer. They don't think they can receive a mammogram screening. The discussion should be focused on breaking the myths and informing people on what is fact versus fiction. Men will say to me “men can't get breast cancer.” So they tend to show up late, when the lump has been there for several months, which is usually stage 2 or later. And that means that it has already spread to the lymph nodes because they …

The remodeled space nows house equipment for the treatment of outpatient dialysis, offers a waiting room and treatment rooms, as well as office space, according to the proposal to the city earlier this year.
The renovation of the Lakewood Senior Health Campus is finished. In its effort to “modernize” the structure at the corner of Detroit Avenue and Bunts Road, the health campus planned — and executed — a major facelift to the property. The remodeled space will now house equipment for the treatment of outpatient dialysis, offers a waiting room and treatment rooms, as well as office space, according to the proposal to the city earlier this year. The idea was to update the facility to partner with the Cleveland Clinic to provide a 13-unit dialysis system on the site, said John O’Neill, the manager and owner of the 150-bed nursing home, earlier this year. “Because of the arrangement with the Clinic, the patients will often be residents of the …

Berry's connection to Lakewood Hospital brings her back home for child's water birth.
Motherhood knows no obstacle. Nothing stands in the way of doing what you feel is best for your child, even if it means enduring months of 5½-hour drives because you want your baby to receive the best care possible. When native Clevelander Tajuana Berry discovered she was pregnant with her second child just three months after her family moved to Gaithersburg, Md., last June, she knew her baby would find its way into the world at the Cleveland Clinic’s Lakewood Hospital. Berry’s first child, McKenna, was born there in September 2010, and the hospital and its staff left such a profound impression on her that she couldn’t imagine her new baby being born anywhere else. She and her husband, Wayne, came all the way from Maryland for her first …

A 13-unit dialysis system planned, along with renovations at the Lakewood Senior Health Campus.
The Lakewood Senior Health Campus is planning a major facelift to its property. Plans were presented to the city last week that would “modernize” the property at the corner of Detroit Avenue and Bunts Road. There are also plans to partner with the Cleveland Clinic for a 13-unit dialysis system on the site, said John O’Neill, the manager and owner of the 150-bed nursing home. “Because of the arrangement with the Clinic, the patients will often be residents of the nursing home,” he said. “The Cleveland Clinic doesn’t have any facilities like this.” The remodeled space will house equipment for the treatment of outpatient dialysis, a waiting room, treatment rooms and office space, according to the proposal. Also, the proposal for the makeover …
