She also explained how in­surance matters are resolved in these instances. “We are pleased to welcome Ms. Spence to our luncheon,” stated Anne Levine, Co-President, PHC Auxiliary. “It is sure nice to know that there is care available after being discharged from a hospital.” The next PHC Auxiliary meeting will be held on Tuesday, February 3 at Noon in the Medi­tation Room and will feature a presentation by Fitzgerald Alcindor, M.D., Director, De­partment of Emergency Services and Vicky Backus, R.N., Nursing Coordinator, Depart­ment of Emergency Medicine on the latest upgrades to the Emergency Department.
