Visit from a friend

A QUICK VISIT Two weeks ago we received a call from Steve Noblett, Executive Director of Christian Community Health Fellowship (CCHF) that he was going to be in Buffalo for the weekend but was arriving early. Could he come visit us in Rochester? Of course, our response was a hearty “YES!” What follows is a brief report posted by the CCHF office to its mailing list: While in Buffalo Steve decided to head down the road for a quick visit with Janet Thirlby, Executive Director, and her team at His Branches in Rochester, NY. Steve was able to tour the nearly completed renovation of...

2019 CCHF Conference

At the last minute, due to the unexpected loss of a key staff member, our team from HBHS had to stay back to care for patients, but Dr. Morehouse was able to participate and lead two workshops. All 725 from around the country who were able to attend were deeply encouraged. The attached PDF is an incomplete overview of the conference with...

HBHS Recognized

Health center achieves patient-centered milestone By Robin L. Flanigan –  January 28, 2019 Three years ago, before the community health center His Branches partnered with Common Ground Health, this was a typical scenario: Moments into a patient’s visit, Medical Director Dr. Matthew Mack would realize he didn’t have the MRI results he needed. He’d then dart to the front of the office to find out where they were. A secretary would search for, and ultimately find, them—just in time for the patient’s visit to end. “There was zero foresight and the stress level was much higher,” he recalls....

Long Life? Let’s Do It!

Want to live to be 90? Here’s your blueprint. An eye-opening new Harvard study reveals 5 brutal truths about people who live the longest. With all the advances in medicine, nutrition, and science, in terms of life expectancy, where do you think the U.S. ranks compared to the rest of the world? First? Fifth? Twentieth? Nope, nope, and nope: At an average expectancy of 76.3 years, the U.S. comes in 43rd out of 195 countries. And it gets worse. By 2040, researchers predict the U.S. will have fallen to 64th in the world. In a study 34-year study of more than 100,000 people, the researchers...
