Upper Allegheny Health System (UAHS) today announced the launch of its new quarterly magazine, Elevate, which is designed to provide information on health education and awareness to area residents in an effort to promote an overall healthy lifestyle.
“As our region struggles with serious health problems such as cancer, diabetes and heart disease, part of our mission is to provide timely health information to assist in educating the public on how to prevent or manage these difficult issues,” said Timothy J. Finan, president and CEO of Upper Allegheny Health System and member hospitals Bradford Regional Medical Center (BRMC) and Olean General Hospital (OGH). “The main focus of this publication is to provide relevant information and tools to improve the overall health of the region we serve. In addition to disease prevention and management, Elevate will offer information on health programs offered at UAHS member hospitals, as well as tips and ideas on how to improve daily health habits that may enhance one’s overall quality of life.”
Quarterly issues will focus on seasonal health care topics, including clinical information and services provided by UAHS member hospitals, disease prevention methods, and support materials for healthy living. All of the information within the magazine is provided and approved by health experts at Bradford Regional Medical Center and Olean General Hospital.
Elevate will be distributed to over 15,000 individuals in the greater Bradford and Olean communities and is free of charge. The magazine will also be available for patients and visitors at Bradford Regional Medical Center and Olean General Hospital. Further, each hospital has an electronic edition of the magazine available on its website. To access, visit www.brmc.com or www.ogh.org and click on the Elevate link on the left side of the page.
