Harbor of Health reopens

Regional One Health has re-opened Harbor of Health in Harbor Town.

According to Regional One Health senior vice president of ambulatory services, the reopening of the clinic – at 718 Harbor Bend Road – comes “with a new framework for service delivery.”

“From the personalities and expertise of the providers to the business operations of the practice, we are creating a health care experience focusing on the needs and priorities of our patients,” she said in a statement about the opening.

The clinic provides primary care services, including pediatrics, and it’s currently staffed by a nurse practitioner, Tamika Bolden, with additional providers including a certified nurse mid-wife to come on board in the future.

Harbor of Health currently offers extended hours to fit the busy schedules of patients, including 7 a.m. appointments and same-day appointments. As new providers join the group, extended hours including night and weekend appointments will also be available.

St. Jude Wins $1.7M federal grant

St. Jude has picked up $1.7 million in federal grant funding for its St. Jude Lifetime Cohort Study.

Begun in 2007, the study hopes to identify a large group of pediatric cancer survivors and track health outcomes over the course of their lives. The larger purpose: to gain insight into the long-term effects of the illness and treatments used on children.

The study is currently made up of patients age 18 and older who got their diagnosis at least 10 years ago. The new funding will help expand the scope of the study to those diagnosed between five and 10 years ago, as well.

Some of the funding will also go toward meals, housing and the transportation of patients.
