Quadruplets Born at Regional Medical Center

Erica Moering received the surprise of her life when she learned she was pregnant with quadruplets. The dedicated team of doctors and nurses who cared for mom and the tiny babies (weighing less than 2 pounds each) hosted a baby shower for the grateful family.

Join our employees in helping us save another life by giving today.

Early Detection Saves Lives

For the fifth year in a row, Regional One Health Foundation has received a grant award from the Susan G. Komen Memphis/Mid-South Affiliate to provide screening mammograms for underserved, underinsured and uninsured women. This year’s $100,000 grant will allow hundreds of Mid-South women to receive life-saving mammograms and follow-up care.

“Regional One Health Foundation is proud to have a fifth year of funding to help a large number of women in our region who turn to Regional One Health for their healthcare needs,” said Joe Brandenburg, Regional One Health Foundation Director of Development. “The speed at which last year’s grant was used justified the need for additional resources, and we are thankful that Susan G. Komen Memphis/Mid-South Affiliate responded to the need in our community for screening mammograms.”

Betty Sistruck is just one of the grateful patients helped by the grant. “Without this service, I would not be able to have a mammogram each year that could literally save my life,” says Betty. “The earlier you find out you have cancer, the better your chances are for survival.”

New Care Concepts for the Mid-South

The changing healthcare landscape and the Affordable Care Act are driving more patients to seek care outside of traditional hospital walls. Regional One Health has introduced a new care concept to the Mid-South with a “medical neighborhood” on their east campus at 6555 Quince Road. The health system occupies 50,000 square feet of space to house outpatient services such as internal medicine, a center for rehabilitative medicine, multispecialty clinic, women’s services, imaging center and a pharmacy.

The new lobby on the east campus is a bright, open space shared by services on the ground floor, and creates a boutique hotel lobbylike experience when the patient enters. The building also features a newly constructed drop-off and canopy area that will usher patients into the building at the main entrance.
