  • Eisenhower Wound Care Center

    A Dynamic, Comprehensive Approach to Healing

       Imagine having a wound that won’t heal for months, even years. For an estimated three to five million Americans every year, that’s a reality. And it often means a life of chronic pain, limited mobility and untold distress.
       The good news, however, is that if you or someone you know has a wound that isn’t healing, expert care is available.
       The Eisenhower Wound Care Center not only provides the most advanced therapies available for healing, but its team of physicians, nurses and other health care professionals also address the underlying cause of the wound to prevent it from recurring. The Center is the only hospital-based, physician-directed facility of its kind in the valley. click for more

  • The Doctor and The Dame - Redefining the Patient-Physician Relationship

       If you look up engaged patient in the dictionary, you’re likely to see a picture of 84-year-old Dorothy Nocita — self-proclaimed Dame Dorothy. As someone who takes personal responsibility for her health care needs and works toward being the healthiest she can be, she embodies the meaning of the term.
       “I really feel that my responsibility is to be an advocate for my health,” the Palm Springs resident and retired reference librarian says. “My goal is to be the best I can be for as long as possible. I owe it to my husband and my children.
       “I’m almost missionary-like when it comes to the importance of people involving themselves in wellness, and not putting up with conventional medicine that doesn’t agree with their needs,” she continues. “That’s why I think the 365 program is brilliant.”  click for more
