Health organizations collaborate to transform Mercy Catholic Medical Center | Business

Four of the region’s health care organizations have formed a coalition to transform Mercy Catholic Medical Center-Mercy Philadelphia Hospital into a campus focused on health equity for the surrounding West Philadelphia neighborhood.

The 157-bed hospital campus will be transformed by coalition partners including Public Health Management Corporation (PHMC), Penn Medicine, Trinity Health Mid-Atlantic and Independence Blue Cross.

The partnership comes seven months after hospital owner Trinity Health Mid-Atlantic announced plans to end inpatient care at the site due to financial challenges.

“Earlier this year, we began a slow and deliberate process of transitioning this campus away from an inpatient hospital — a model we determined was not sustainable — shifting toward an approach better equipped to address the current and future needs of the West Philadelphia community,” James Woodward, president and CEO of Trinity Health Mid-Atlantic, said in a news release.

“We’ve done our best to include our patients, community

How Health Care Can Stop Amplifying Racism

These health gaps are not immutable. Concrete changes to public policy, industry practices, and medical education could turn the health-care system into a force for greater equality. Here are five such changes:

First, when states are indifferent to whether their Black and Latino citizens have health coverage, the federal government should step in. According to research published earlier this year, 9 percent of white adults were uninsured in 2018, compared with 14 percent of Black adults and 25 percent of Latino adults. The coronavirus recession is making the coverage gap worse. Already, as many as 12 million Americans have lost insurance sponsored by their employer or a family member’s employer. Black, Latino, and other workers of color have faced especially steep declines in employment.

Ten minutes of massage or rest will help your body fight stress

Allowing yourself a few minutes of downtime significantly boosts mental and physical relaxation. Research by psychologists at the University of Konstanz observed higher levels of psychological and physiological relaxation in people after only ten minutes of receiving a massage. Even ten minutes of simple rest increased relaxation, albeit to a lesser degree than massage. The findings, reported on 8 September 2020 in the journal Scientific Reports, provide the first indication that short-term treatments can robustly reduce stress on a psychological and physiological level by boosting the body’s principal engine for relaxation – the parasympathetic nervous system (PNS).

Stress is known to have negative consequences for health and disease. However, our bodies have an inbuilt regenerative system, the PNS, to ward off stress during times of threat. Launching a relaxation response is thus key to protecting our health and restoring balance in our body. Massage has been used to improve
