Special thanks to the Tyrone Hospital Auxiliary. They donated six Automatic External Defibrillators (AED') to Tyrone Hospital. An AED is used to resuscitate the heart in instances of cardiac arrest. The AED’s donated by the Auxiliary have been placed in each of the buildings located on the Tyrone Hospital campus.

AED’s are often placed in public areas to make it possible for more people to respond to a medical emergency where heart defibrillation is required. Non-medical people can use an AED in an emergency situation, provided they have proper training.
Tom Smith, RN, Director of Education at Tyrone Hospital provided training for key personnel in buildings on the Tyrone Hospital campus where the AEDs have been placed.

Pictured are members of the Tyrone Hospital Auxiliary with leaders from the Tyrone Fitness and Wellness Center (TFWC) and the Tyrone Hospital Education Department. TFWC received one of the Automatic External Defibrillators (AED) that the Auxiliary donated to Tyrone Hospital. From left to right are Nicole Schenk, TFWC Coordinator, Jane Ashcroft, auxiliary member, Carolyn Cushion, auxiliary member, Tom Smith, RN, Director of Education and Safety at Tyrone Hospital, Virgie Werner, Auxiliary President, Vicky Shaw, auxiliary member and Murray Fetzer, TFWC Director.

Wed, 2014-01-08 08:28
January 2014 marks the 50th anniversary of the first Surgeon General's Report on Smoking and Health. The 1964 landmark report from the U.S. Surgeon General was the first to definitively link smoking with lung cancer and heart disease.

In the fifty years since the report was issued, remarkable progress has been made. Since 1964, smoking prevalence among U.S. adults has been reduced by half. But smoking is still the leading preventable cause of death in the United States, killing more than 440,000 people each year. Smoking is still a health issue in our area too! If you smoke make a commitment to quit!
Watch this video on how smoking can cause a heart attack.

We are expanding again! The medical office building located at 175 Hospital Drive on the Tyrone Hospital campus is currently being expanded to accommodate future growth. Work on the building, which is owned by Tyrone Hospital, is being completed by local contractor Jeff Long. Expansion of the medical office building follows the recent opening of the newly constructed Tyrone Health and Wellness Building on the hospital campus which was completed summer of 2013. The Health and Wellness Building is fully occupied and is home to several physician offices and the new Tyrone Fitness and Wellness Center. The building at 175 Hospital Drive will provide an additional 4,000 square feet of medical office space to accommodate additional medical providers who wish to locate on the Tyrone Hospital campus. Pictured is the medical office building under construction as roof trusses are lifted and put in place.
