    The popular Woman’s Health Night will return to Scott Memorial Hospital on Monday, October 26, with two enthusiastic speakers guaranteed to empower the audience to take control of their health care and lives.
    Women’s Health Night began several years ago in October to highlight Breast Cancer Awareness Month and to honor SMH team member Lula Belle Roll, a well-liked nursing assistant who died of cancer. The event quickly grew, thanks to the efforts of several hospital staff members who took ownership of the project. They soon added other important health awareness topics they felt should be an integral part of community education efforts. Topics in past years have included heart disease, the number one killer of women, and diabetes, a significant health problem in our area.
    “This year, we are happy to present two very exciting speakers,” said Scott Memorial Hospital Mammographer Hope White, RT, (R) (M).  “These passionate energetic speakers are going to give women tools help them become more complete women mentally physically and emotionally.”

Hill Visits New Scott County CBOC PDF Print E-mail

    On Friday, October 2, 2009, Congressman Baron Hill toured the recently-opened Scott County Community-Based Outpatient Clinic (CBOC). Hill has been involved with securing a CBOC for Southern Indiana veterans in Scott County for several years.
    The CBOC, which is strategically located near Scott Memorial Hospital, currently retains two full-time doctors –– with room to expand to five if needed. The Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) facility actually opened about a year ago, but was located in a temporary location while the current site underwent construction. Currently, the CBOC is serving more than 1,400 veterans.
    Veterans from Scott, Washington, Jefferson, Jackson, Clark, Bartholomew and Jennings Counties are accessing the CBOC’’s services. And, the doctors report that many of those veterans were previously driving to Indianapolis, Louisville or Cincinatti for care. The Scott County CBOC is much closer for many of these Southern Indiana veterans.
    According to the VA’s web site, the Scott County center is staffed with highly-trained providers specializing in providing a full range of primary care, mental health and other preventative and ancillary services.
    “The opening of this facility in Scott County is great news for our Southern Indiana veterans,” Hill said. “They should not have to drive long distances to get the care they need. I was very impressed with the doctors and support staff I met during my tour and appreciate that they took time out of their day to show me around.”

    A new house for rats and mice and a Family Fun Weekend are divergent but great news about what's happening at Hardy Lake State Recreational Area.
    Tucked into the northeast corner of Scott County, Hardy Lake attracts fishermen, campers and boating enthusiasts nearly every month of the year. Special events are also offered, including monthly Saturday morning breakfasts served outdoors by members of Friends of Hardy Lake, the recent Raptor Days and the upcoming Family Fun Weekend.
Assistant lake property manager Terry Davis noted it's been a pretty busy season with more people than ever taking advantage of the lake's attractions.
    The lake also has one of the few licensed raptor rehabilitation centers in Indiana. The Dwight Chamberlain Raptor Rehab Center is home to several permanently-injured animals, including the lake's bald eagle, who is now fully mature at 5½ years.
