Joining Together for Live-Saving Care

At JPS Health Network, we emphasize the importance of multidisciplinary care, which involves bringing together various medical specialties to provide our patients with comprehensive, life-saving treatment. When multiple specialties come together, physicians can discuss the best options for each patient, ensuring that they receive the necessary care to begin the healing process and reduce recovery times. Scott Throneberry's experience with this type of care enabled him to undergo surgery and recover faster than with the traditional way of conducting this procedure.

Stopping the Stigmas

As human beings, it is likely that each of us has, or will, experience some level of trauma within our lifetimes. Trauma is the emotional response one has to a distressing event and can look vastly different in everyone.

The way individuals process these events is broadly divergent. The development and recurrence of these symptoms can be identified as Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), a behavioral disorder that benefits from treatments like psychotherapy.

Offering Hope

Roxana Bonilla is a patient at JPS Health Network who was diagnosed with a rare genetic condition known as Tracheobronchopathia Osteochondroplastica (TO), when calcified nodules are present in the larger airways. This involves the space inside of the trachea and bronchi and results in the obstruction of one's airways.

Prioritizing Families

The team members at JPS Health Network spend countless hours prioritizing patients and their families. A crucial piece of patient experience is ensuring that these individuals and their loved ones feel valued as they receive care.

Outside of their professional lives, many JPS team members shift that priority to their families. The workforce here at JPS is incredibly diverse, and the role one plays in a family differs. As we celebrate Father's Day, we are exploring how team members intertwine fatherhood and their careers.

It’s Not Over Yet

Darius Walker was a patient at JPS Health Network for nearly four months. During these four months, Walker faced many obstacles and challenges. Still, no matter what the days ahead held for him, he walked triumphantly down his road to recovery.

On February 2, 2024, Walker was brought into the Emergency Department at JPS. Unknowingly, he was suffering from a total hip dislocation in both of his hips, leaving him in a split-like position and unable to walk.
