Health Education

Health information explained in everyday language!

Our world changes so quickly that keeping up on the latest local and national health news can be daunting. That is why Parrish Medical Center (PMC) will do it for you. Whether it is a health bulletin, news about PMC or medical announcements, count on us to get it to you fast.

The volume of health advice can be overwhelming, not to mention time-consuming. However, the health of you and your family depends on being an informed patient, neighbor and citizen. That is why we developed PMC HealthBridge.

What is HealthBridge?
As a member of PMC HealthBridge you will receive up-to-the-minute health news, tips for better living, event reminders, checklists and other tools to make health awareness part of your daily life. The best part is the program is free and is tailored to your lifestyle, so you get to choose:

  • The kind of information you want to receive, such as women’s health, weight control, diabetes and blood pressure
  • How often you want communication: daily, weekly, monthly, quarterly
  • The way in which you want to receive information: mail, e-mail, text message or social media sites.
Parrish Medical Center is dedicated to quality care and excellent service. Our healing environment extends beyond the touch of our physicians, nurses and other care partners and into your home. HealthBridge is part of our commitment to provide you with healing experiences all the time.
