Helping parents of sick children uncover vital details about rare health conditions is something Rachel Fenske is passionate about. She often brings the information straight to a patient’s bedside, with an iPad and access to health journals the average person might not know about.
USA Health University Hospital offers support groups for patients, family members and other caregivers.
Patients often ask, "How can I find information about my health condition or other health related issues?" We encourage our patients to take advantage of the educational resources available at University Hospital. Visit the Health Information Resource Center (HIRC) on the third floor to review a wide range of information for patients and staff.
Patients also have access to the university's biomedical library and online chats with librarians at www.southalabama.edu/departments/biomedicallibrary/.
Behind the scenes, University Hospital plays a vital role in the education of physicians, nurses, therapists, technicians and others. Our patients are among the first to benefit from new treatments that have been discovered and proven effective by our research and education teams.
