CEO Friday Message
Today, I’ve been serving as your CEO for one month. Every day is different, a new challenge and a new reward, but every day passes so quickly! As I have been walking around meeting people, listening to you, and learning about our operations, I see each day what great work we do here, and the amazing care that is provided. What concerns me though is that we may not know about all the good work that we do across our organization, as we have grown exponentially. And if we don’t know about our good work, our community may not know about it either.
For instance, did you know that Highland has two retail pharmacies and an infusion pharmacy that can help to meet the needs of our patients, our families, our communities, and our own personal needs? All prescriptions can be filled at our Advance Pharmacy at 1418E MacCorkle Ave SW, or at our Highland Pharmacy at 501 Morris Street. and you will find that our services are unsurpassed—brand name and generic prescriptions, online refills, medication education, and home delivery are just a few! In fact, if you work at the hospital, Advance Pharmacy will deliver your filled prescriptions to you at the hospital—what could be more convenient than that! Please take advantage of the wonderful pharmacy services that can be provided by our caring staff!
Also, did you know that we have a primary care practice at 1418 MacCorkle Ave SW co-located with our outpatient company, Process Strategies? We have been accepting patients here for about a year, and we’ve only had rave reviews of the care provided by Dr. Parikshak and staff. Appointments are available now for all of your care needs, including chronic and acute disease management, routine preventive care, medication management, physicals, lab testing, and a host of other services. Come check out our Primary Care services and see for yourself!
So, in keeping with our vision to improve the total well-being of individuals and families, we have invested in these services that go hand in hand with our excellent inpatient and outpatient behavioral health services. Be sure to tell your families, friends, and communities about these services, and come check us out—I know I will!
