Celebrating Excellence: A Conemaugh Connection Television Special

Hear from physicians and caregivers at our facility, recently ranked among Top 5% in the Nation, along with patients, who share their firsthand accounts of how the care they received at Conemaugh has given them a second chance.

Part One: Surgery
For some, surgical advancements mean getting back in the game or back on their feet. For others it is truly a second chance at life and not having to say goodbye too soon.

Part Two: Critical Care
Cooling the body is a technique still being studied for spine injuries but it is now being used routinely at Memorial Medical Center for cardiac arrest patients. Doctors in intensive care believe, in some cases, this induced hypothermia may be the difference between a patient waking up or not.

Part Three: Home Health
Conemaugh Home Health has given thousands of patients across the region piece of mind in knowing that some of the nation’s best caregivers make housecalls.
