Take a Breath: Have a Ball in Erie

Take a Breath: Have a Ball in Erie

Allegheny Health Network promoted asthma awareness at Tall Ships® Erie 2016

Saint Vincent Hospital is proud to be recognized as the #1 Rated Hospital in Erie for Overall Hospital & Surgical Quality Care (according to CareChex® -- a division of Comparion®, Comparion Medical Analytic, 2016 National Quality Rating Database). 
And while it’s wonderful to be recognized for our quality of care, what we truly celebrate are the outcomes – that’s the Living Proof of the difference we’re making each day for our patients and their families.
Next time you blow up a beach ball, remember that Allegheny Health Network helps over 1,800 kids with asthma every year, so they can breathe, run, and play. 
On September 8th, Saint Vincent Hospital inflated the largest beach ball in the U.S. – at 40 feet –along Erie's historic bayfront, in recognition of these kids. It’s symbolic of the Living Proof we work to deliver each and every day for our patients. And it’s representative of our ongoing commitment to provide the residents of Western PA with the highest level of quality care.
Saint Vincent Pulmonologist, Kenneth D. Chinsky, MD, spoke to the media about the signs and symptoms of asthma, when to seek medical care, and how to prevent and control asthma.
