Understanding What Your Numbers Mean
High blood pressure(HBP), or hypertension, is a disease. Even though it typically has no symptoms, HBP can have deadly health consequences if not treated. About 80 million U.S. adults have been diagnosed with high blood pressure.
The first step in preventing and controlling high blood pressure is to learn the answers to a few questions...
Blood Pressure and Stroke
Every 40 seconds, someone in the United States has a stroke. More than 75 percent of Americans who have a stroke have high blood pressure.

However, over 80% of all strokes are preventable. Find out how you can safeguard you and your loved ones today.
Speech Therapy for Parkinson's Disease
May highlights better hearing and speech month. Some people with Parkinson’s Disease may find they have problems with their speech and communication. Fort HealthCare's team of Speech Language Pathologists are here to help you!
Springtime Community Activities for May
Spring is here- Hopefully to stay, and community activities are coming alive. Now is the time to grab your family and engage them in outdoor community activities. Who knew that Jefferson County offered so much right in your own background?
Better Hearing and Speech Month
The ability to speak, hear and understand language is central to almost every aspect of daily living. Yet, these skills are often taken for granted until someone loses them.

Fort HealthCare is celebrating Better Hearing & Speech Month (BHSM) as an opportunity to raise awareness about communication disorders and role of ASHA members in providing life-altering treatment.
National Nurses Wellness Walk
Annually, National Nurses Week begins on May 6th, marked as RN Recognition Day, and ends on May 12th.
To celebrate our nurses, Fort HealthCare is offering a wellness walk from 11:00 a.m. until 4:00 p.m.
Jefferson County School Garden Summit
The Jefferson County School Garden Summit is designed to connect people, knowledge, and resources surrounding farm to school efforts. Register before May 10th!
Simple Salmon with Dill Sauce!
Of all the different types of fish, salmon has received the most praise for being a nutritional marvel.
It is an excellent source of high-quality protein, vitamins and minerals (including potassium, selenium and vitamin B12) but it is their content of omega-3 fatty acids that receives the most attention.
Fort HealthCare is proud to sponsor a number of community events. All year long, you can find a number of health and fitness related events and classes for the whole family. Check out to find more activities throughout the community.
