Melanoma Awareness Month

Melanoma is the 3rd most common, but most deadly type of skin cancer. The American Cancer Society estimates in 2017 that over 87,000 new melanomas will be diagnosed in the United States. Fortunately, the risk of melanoma can be reduced with sun protection and when detected early, is highly treatable. May is designated as skincare awareness month and YOU can help spread the news and in turn save lives.

Hospital Appreciation Week

We celebrated Hospital Appreciation Week this week, May 7-13. The staff and facility comes together and enjoys some of the daily goodies and activities that go on each year during this week. Hospital Appreciation Week is celebrated nationally, and here at Stevens Community Medical Center we not only serve the community but are also a part of it. KMRS/KKOK, Annie Harman stopped by early in the week and chatted with various staff and learned about many services that SCMC provides here. She put together a interview that was broadcast on local radio.
