Parkview Health and specifically Parkview Community Nursing and outreach has ben kep to the YMCA of Greater Fort Wayne launching the Y's Diabetes Prevention PRogram to the community as well as a number of other prevention programs. Parkviews passion and care for the community exceeds the expectatons of many in the healthcare field as we strive to look at the barriers that prevent our community from reaching their healthiest potential. Parkview collaborates with the Y on our National Healthy Kids Day serving over 1200 youths help develop healthier eating habits along with find fun ways to increas activity and decrease screen time, builidng healthier habits for long life span. Parkview provides free glucose screens for areas in need as well as provide nursing staff to educate on the "numbers" and guiding participants to local programs that will help benefit their help and reduce their risks of chronic diseases.

Parkview Health System has partnered with Fort Wayne Community Schools through its Community Nursing Department for almost 16 years. Through this partnership they have helped many children and their families through their nursing support and many health initiatives. Right now Parkview supplements the FWCS nursing staff by supplying 5 school based nurses so children have better access to a nurse while at school. They also have nurse specialists that provide expert advice on serious health conditions like diabetes and asthma. These conditions can have a big impact on our kids during the school day. Additionally, Parkview has provided continuing education for all of our school nurses making us better prepared to meet the health needs of our students.
Parkview has stayed committed to helping the most vulnerable and underserved in our community by offering additions services to our Title I schools. They provide vision screening and in-school flu immunization programs. They are committed to having an impact on other important health matters like childhood obesity by assisting with wonderful education programs for students like their LIVE program. My experience is that the Parkview mission is committed to a healthier future for Fort Wayne. We are truly grateful to have them as our partner.

During a recent routine physical exam, my husband’s EKG revealed he’d had a recent, silent heart attack. As expected, this was very scary news to both of us. Within days, the doctors at Parkview Heart Institute scheduled him for an echo cardiogram and, subsequently, a cardiac catheterization. Everyone at Parkview, from the receptionist who checked us in to the surgeon who performed the procedure was extremely solicitous. The nurses who cared for us – and I use the word “us” deliberately – were especially compassionate, not only making sure my husband was comfortable and informed at every step in the procedure but also taking the time to reassure a frightened wife and make what was happening a little less scary. Happy to say, the procedure went well and my husband did not need further surgery. If the time ever comes that he does, we will definitely have it done at Parkview.
