Sudden Cardiac Arrest VS. Heart Attack

Sudden cardiac arrest and a heart attack are two different heart problems, but both are serious and potentially deadly. The most important thing to remember with both is that the patient needs medical care right away.

Primary Care

A primary care physician is a medical doctor who provides comprehensive healthcare for common illnesses and basic medical services. They often serve as the first point of contact for patients.

Breast Cancer

Dr. Troy Kimsey is a surgical oncologist who serves as Phoebe’s Medical Director of Oncology. Watch this video to hear him discuss genetic testing and breast cancer care available at the Phoebe Cancer Center.


High cholesterol levels put you at greater risk of heart disease and stroke, so it’s important to know your levels, your risk factors and what to do to maintain healthy numbers.

Summer Safety

At Phoebe, we want you to remember each summer for all the right reasons. Dr. Eddie Black has some advice to help keep you safe during the summer.

Trauma Awareness

Today, more Americans survive serious injuries than ever before. That is due largely to advancements in trauma care and strides made in developing optimal trauma protocols and expanding the trauma system.

Minority Health Month

Health indicators such as life expectancy and infant mortality have generally improved over the years for most Americans. However, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, “some people from racial and ethnic minority groups experience a disproportionate burden of preventable disease, death and disability.”

Colorectal Cancer Awareness

Colorectal cancer is the second leading cause of cancer deaths in the United States, but it is also often a preventable form of cancer. A colonoscopy may reveal polyps before they develop into cancer.

Women's Heart Health

Many people think of heart disease as a health issue that primarily affects men, but heart disease is also the number one killer in women. In 2020, heart disease killed more than 314,000 women in the United States.

COVID-19 Vaccines

COVID-19 vaccines have been proven to be extremely safe and effective, and widespread vaccination will end the pandemic.  The sooner most people get vaccinated, the sooner our lives can return to normal.

Mindful Eating & Good Nutrition

A healthy diet helps maintain a healthy body. Unfortunately, many of us don’t spend a lot of time thinking about what and how we eat. Mindful eating is a strategy that can help you improve your overall health by improving your nutrition.

Heart Health

Heart disease is extremely common. It is the leading cause of death in men and women and in people of most racial groups. About 647,000 Americans die from heart disease each year. That’s one in every four deaths.

Bariatric Surgery

Not every overweight person is a good candidate for weight loss surgery, but that surgery is truly life-changing for many patients. New advances have improved success rates and offer real hope for obese patients who have not had success with diet, exercise and behavior modification.

Holiday Stress

According to the National Alliance on Mental Illness, 43.8 million Americans experience mental illness in a given year, and depression is the leading cause of disability worldwide. Unfortunately, the holiday season can intensify depression and stress for many people.


Nearly 1.4 million Americans with a life-limiting illness receive care from hospices each year. Hospice is a broad spectrum of high-quality care provided by a team of compassionate professionals who help a patient focus on living, rather than dying.

Breast Cancer

Breast cancer is the second most common cancer in women in the United States, behind only skin cancer. It can occur in men and women, but it is much more common in women.

Atrial Fibrillation

Atrial fibrillation, or AFib, is the most common type of heart arrhythmia. It is an irregular heartbeat that can occur in brief episodes or become a permanent condition.

Youth Sports

All physical activity comes with some inherent risk of injury, but the benefits generally outweigh the risks for most of us.

Women's Health

If you believe the stereotype, women are more concerned about their health and visit the doctor more than men. That’s not necessarily true.

Heart Attack Treatment

Treatment of heart attacks has advanced tremendously in recent years. Phoebe’s team of emergency medicine and heart & vascular experts are ready to offer you quick and quality care that could save your life.
