Summer is coming to an end and most kids have headed back to school. It is time to switch the focus and start thinking about classes, sports, and after-school activities. As you begin your back-to-school preparations, and pick out your new clothes and backpacks, it is also a good idea to begin the school year off with new healthy habits for the kids and the entire family.

Dr. Omar Jalil, Director of Hospital Medicine

Here at Eastside we have an extensive and dedicated Hospital Medicine program. Our Hospitalist team manages patient care and treatment on a daily basis. However, we often get the question, “What is a Hospitalist?”

Dr. Matthew Goldstein

It is an exciting time at Eastside Medical Center as we continue to grow our services offered to the community. These new services include the addition of three new Urgent Care Centers, the new South Campus Emergency Department, as well as our continued growth at our main campus Emergency Department.  

Dr. Carmen McGee, OB/GYN

Absolutely! After you’ve seen your obstetric provider and have been evaluated and cleared for potential medical conditions that could impact your ability to be active, the medical community strongly encourages our future moms to engage in regular physical activity.

A stroke is when an area of the brain does not get the blood flow that it needs. This lack of blood flow can lead to cell damage and/or death.
