Marion was a wonderful, vibrant, energetic person who was thoroughly dedicated to Eagleville Hospital. Marion joined the Board of Directors on April 26, 1983. Marion participated on many Committees throughout her years of service, but the Joint Conference Committee was, by far, her favorite. She loved figuring out ways to better help Eagleville patients and was way before her time in considering various methods of treatment. She held the position of Committee Chair, and was also elected Hospital Chair from 1989-1992.
Peer Support at Eagleville – Helping patients to navigate through rough waters of recovery
Most patients struggle to keep newly sober heads above water in the rapids of recovery. They may think sobriety is mythic and feel ill-equipped to navigate out of the murky depths of addiction or mental unrest.
At Eagleville Hospital, bridges over these very troubled waters can be found in the form of peer support specialists. As individuals who have “been there, done that,” they help patients to plan for a successful landing on the shores of sobriety
Warm Handoff Program Combats Opiate Epidemic
Eagleville Hospital is on the front lines in the battle against opiate addiction – an epidemic of both local and national proportions. Whether in the form of heroin or prescription painkillers, opiate use is growing at a substantial rate and is taking a devastating and sometimes deadly toll on an increasingly younger age demographic.
Eagleville has realized that proactive steps are needed within treatment centers to combat this problem and as such has implemented the Warm Handoff Program. In the context of this program, Eagleville is making an important “direct reach” connection with Einstein Medical Center Montgomery in East Norriton. Professionals from Eagleville are empowered to interact with overdose patients receiving emergent help at the medical center and encourage them to consider Eagleville for further treatment.
