Cervical Health Awareness Month

January is Cervical Health Awareness Month, which makes this a good time to remind women to schedule their annual exams with their GYN physician. According to the National Cervical Cancer Coalition, more than 14,000 women in the United States are diagnosed with invasive cervical cancer each year, yet the disease is preventable with vaccination and appropriate screening.

OB/GYN Associates of Sewickley is accepting new patients and has offices in both the Robinson Township Medical Neighborhood and on the first floor of Heritage Valley Sewickley Hospital. Dr. Rebecca Welch, Dr. Ioanna Kanellitsas and Dr. Wenjun Zong all have extensive experience and provide comprehensive Obstetrics and Gynecology care. Please call 412-749-8317 to schedule an appointment.

Employee Spotlight… Alaina, RN, BSN

As we begin the New Year, we are spotlighting employees who not only make Heritage Valley Health System a great place to work, but also make a difference in the lives of our patients! Meet Alaina, a nurse in the Heritage Valley Beaver Emergency Department. She knows that each day she is going to impact someone’s care and she understands what a great responsibility that is. Alaina realizes that each patient is different and deserves personalized care. 

Alaina didn’t feel the “calling” to become a nurse until high school. Once she discovered her strengths, she knew that nursing would be the perfect fit for her. Working as a nurse’s aide furthered her skill set and prepared her for nursing school, and ultimately for Emergency nursing. Alaina feels that Heritage Valley is truly a community, and we certainly are glad that Alaina is part of the Heritage Valley Family!

Join Alaina and the rest of our talented team by applying online at https://www.heritagevalley.org/careers/. Here you will see opportunities available in our hospitals, physician offices, Senior Living community and NorthWest EMS.
