March 2017 "On-Hold" Messages

Posted Date: 2/28/2017

March is National Nutrition Month! In celebration, the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics encourages parents to “Put Your Best Fork Forward” by modeling healthy eating habits – one forkful at a time. Here are small, healthy changes families can make to their eating habits: start the family’s day with a nutritious breakfast; during each meal, fill half your plate with fruits and vegetables; make at least half of the grains you eat whole grains, and talk positively about eating healthy foods – your kids ARE listening! For more information, go to

You’re Invited! We’re pleased to introduce our new Mammography Center at a Grand Opening Social on Thursday, March 16, 2017, from 5:30 to 7 p.m. at Hanover Hospital. Tours and light refreshments will be available! Please proceed into the Main Lobby. You will be escorted to the new Center. Click here for more info.

As part of its new Mammography Center, Hanover Hospital is pleased to offer 3-D Mammography, the most advanced digital technology for diagnosing breast cancer at its earliest stages. This advanced method produces a clearer 3-dimensional image by using several X-rays obtained at different angles, offering increased cancer detection and decreased callback rates. For more information, or to schedule an appointment, please call 717-316-3500.

Pediatric Specialty Therapy
services are growing once again, to include pediatric aquatic therapy for occupational and speech, as well as physical rehabilitation – in the warm water pool at the York Street Medical Center in Hanover. Because the pool is now designated exclusively for pediatric patients, aquatic therapy can be offered at any time throughout the therapists’ schedules.

March 30 is National Doctor’s Day – when patients and families can recognize physicians and express their appreciation for the impact those doctors have made on their lives. Thank you to all of our physicians for all you do for our patients and our organization.
