Helping You Take Control of Your Health
Today, medical studies have concluded that the risk and severity of many illnesses, such as heart disease and certain types of cancer, can be reduced through lifestyle changes and preventive measures.
Providing care for the whole person requires a commitment to offering health resources that help people prevent, understand and manage disease processes. These include classes, health screenings, support groups, educational seminars, fundraising events and much, much more.
If you are a patient at GAMC, we provide you with a Patient Guide, which contains information about the hospital, what you can expect during your stay, a TV guide and many other helpful tips and tools.
Classes available at GAMC include:
- Lamaze childbirth
- Baby care basics
- Diabetes education
- Joint replacement strengthening exercise program
- Arthritis pool program
- Senior exercise program
- Smoking cessation
- Grief support
A variety of support groups meet at the Medical Center to provide persons education and support as they make lifestyle changes and address personal difficulties.
Glendale Adventist Medical Center also sponsors community health screenings for common diseases and conditions, including prostate and breast cancer.
