Sepsis Awareness Month

Sepsis is responsible for more than 270,000 deaths a year in the United States. Although 65% of Americans say they know the word “sepsis,” only 12% can identify the most common symptoms. September is sepsis awareness month. Take the time this month to familiarize yourself with sepsis so you can recognize it yourself and your loved ones.


Suicide Prevention Month

September is National Suicide Prevention Month, an annual month-long campaign to inform and increase awareness around suicide prevention and the warning signs of suicide.

Getting into a Healthy Routine with Couch to 5K

Over the past few years, Fisher-Titus has hosted several sessions of Couch to 5K. Couch to 5K is a free nine-week program that helps participants work their way up to running, jogging, or walking their first 5K. Through this program, there have been many local success stories where participants were able to jumpstart a new fitness routine with Couch to 5K.

Chad Stang: Trauma Warrior

In October of 2018, Fisher-Titus partnered with MetroHealth in Cleveland to provide a higher level of trauma care close to home for the community.

Since then, care has been provided for countless trauma patients at Fisher-Titus, a Level III Trauma Center since 2009. The partnership with MetroHealth enables us to increase our knowledge base, expand our expertise, and increase the level of care we provide to our patients who experience a traumatic injury.

One of these patients is Monroeville resident Chad Stang.

What started as a routine softball tournament on October 5, 2019 turned into a series of events Chad Stang will likely not soon forget.

While sliding to catch a ball, Chad collided with another player whose shoulder hit his stomach. Despite the incident, Chad finished that game and started the next game as a designated hitter.

Beach Safety

We are fortunate to be close to a great source of summer fun—Lake Erie. Since there are still a few warm weeks left of summer, you may be looking to head to the lake before temperatures cool down and the kids head back to school. Before you head out, make sure you are prepared to enjoy the beach safely.
