Lisa Mitchell suffered severe pain in her pelvis and back for years due to persistent bladder issues. Dr. Seth Strope, head of urologic oncology at Baptist MD Anderson Cancer Center ruled out cancer, then made her a "neobladder" using the small intestines. Now Lisa says she is excited about life again and looking forward to doing things she couldn't before like traveling or going to the movies.

"You are not alone. You are not to blame. You will get help." Valerie Plame Wilson on #postpartumdepression encouraging women and community members at tonight's Sisisky-Kleppinger Lecture @wjctjax.
Changing healthcare for good in our community is what Baptist Health is all about. Access, affordable care, and a lack of knowledge about services and dozens of other factors contributed to a wide range of health care needs among communities in northeast Florida. That is the conclusion of a newly released study commissioned by a group of local health care organizations. The Jacksonville Metropolitan Community Benefit Partnership, which includes Baptist Health and @wolfsonchildrens, recently released its second Community Health Needs Assessment. You can read Baptist and Wolfson's hospital-specific reports at the link in profile.

"Some days, my job can be stressful. But, when a patient hugs me and tells me how thankful she is that I was there for her, I remember why I became a nurse.

I love reassuring my patients that they are in the right place..." __________________________________________
