Thirty-seven Crozer-Keystone Health System physicians, an increase from last year, are honored in Philadelphia magazine’s 2017 “Top Doctors” issue published this month. The physicians, representing more than 20 different medical specialties, were nominated in nation-wide surveys of their peers conducted by Castle Connolly Medical Ltd.
This week, Crozer-Keystone Health System is again proud to observe and celebrate National Volunteer Week, April 23-29, by honoring its volunteers, a dedicated group of over 200 people who play a valuable role in the health system’s hospitals and facilities.
April is National Foot Health Awareness Month, a time when the experts at Crozer-Keystone Health System suggest taking a moment to stand up for your feet. According to the American Orthopedic Foot & Ankle Society, the average person takes 10,000 steps each day, which adds up to more than three million steps per year.
In 2009, Robert Leboffe was doing a pre-trip inspection underneath a tractor trailer when a cardiac episode hit. When he went to stand up, he was suddenly overcome with extreme dizziness. Despite being successfully treated for the episode, he had a recurrence seven years later, in late 2016. So, Leboffe saw Crozer-Keystone electrophysiologist Sandeep Sharma, M.D., who specializes in treating abnormal heart rhythms.
The hospitals of Crozer-Keystone Health System will offer free hearing screenings during May in observance of Better Speech and Hearing Month. Screenings are for adults over the age of 18 who are not currently under the care of a physician for existing hearing problems and who do not wear a hearing aid.
The Crozer-Keystone Sleep Centers offer a support group for those who have a suspected sleep disorder or have already been diagnosed. Hussein Kiliddar, M.D., Crozer-Keystone pulmonologist and sleep physician, will lead a discussion at the next support group meeting on Thursday, April 27, from 6:30-8 p.m. in the Community Room at Crozer-Keystone at Brinton Lake (300 Evergreen Drive, Glen Mills).
