Eagleville Hospital Has Revamped its Three Official Social Media Accounts
As part of our ongoing effort to engage with alumni, family, staff and the surrounding community, Eagleville Hospital has revamped its three official social media accounts. We’re excited to announce a brand-new Facebook page and a revitalized presence on Twitter and Instagram @EaglevilleHospital.
Alumni & Family Event
Coming together and celebrating our successes is an important piece of recovery from addiction and mental health. We would like to celebrate our alumni and family and invite them back to campus where we can share a meal, hear from speakers and reunite with our Friends of Eagleville. Eagleville would not be who we are without our alumni and family members and we would like to show our appreciation and support of all your hard work. Hearing about your powerful experiences shares a message of hope for our current patients and staff. At Eagleville, we are so looking forward to reconnecting with familiar faces and hearing about your journey since leaving these doors. September is National Recovery month and within our campus we will be completing different recovery-oriented activities with our patients in support of this effort. We would love to end the month by bringing back our alumni and family and continuing to strengthen our community.
Eagleville Hospital honors it’s Social Work Employees
The field of social work is a key component to many establishments on a macro level. The interpersonal communication that social workers provide with patients or people in need, serves as an important stepping stone to the person’s recovery or general improvement. In the realm of drug and alcohol rehabilitation, this kind of expertise is fully realized. Specifically at Eagleville Hospital, the social workers who are present on campus are an integral component of the staff, and their counseling efforts assist patients in making a full recovery, and making that recovery to be attainable in the first place.
Alumni and Family Join Our Advisory Council
Eagleville is forming our first ever Advisory Council. It will be a council that meets quarterly and will be comprised of previous patients, family members of previous patients and community members who will be given an opportunity to voice their ideas/needs to enhance our current services and overall patient and family satisfaction.
Dedicated Employee Pat Ferro Retires After 33 years in Behavior Health Services.
Many employees at Eagleville Hospital help it to function at such a high level on a daily basis. The contributions from the individuals in all departments synergize as one entity, and as a result, it serves as an asset to the entire operation. In particular, the longest tenured employees serve a distinct role. Some people label them – the mature workforce! Through their many years at the hospital, they have established a high degree of continuity.
Eagleville Hospital Expands Family Seminar
As part of its ongoing efforts to improve outcomes for its patients in treatment, Eagleville Hospital has redesigned and improved its family education program to inform families of patients at Eagleville about addiction and recovery. This hour and a half program is mandatory for families wishing to visit loved ones during their stay at Eagleville Hospital.

Marion Shapiro – Longtime Eagleville Hospital supporter, former member of Eagleville Hospital Board of Directors, Former Eagleville Hospital Board Chair. Passed away on February 28, 2017.
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
