On December 5th, our Pharmacy Director, Lori Lewicki, and our Clinical Pharmacist, Marisa Campanale, attended the American Society of Health-System Pharmacists (ASHP) Midyear conference in Las Vegas, Nevada. The ASHP conference is the largest gathering of pharmacists in the world. Lori and Marisa attended the conference to represent Holyoke Health Center as they continue their recruitment for next year's PGY1 pharmacy practice resident. At the conference they set up an information booth, which provided general information about the health center, and about their specific pharmacy residency program. Lori and Marisa were successful in attracting interested potential residents, many of whom had thoroughly researched Holyoke Health Center. The Holyoke Health Center has an accredited residency program, and it is imperative that our pharmacy department attends national conference, such as the ASHP conference, in order to promote our residency program to the thousands of pharmacy students (potential residents) who attend.
Lori and Marisa loved bringing HHC to Las Vegas and they are excited to move forward in their search for next year's PGY1 pharmacy practice resident.

You recently received a letter from Health New England that told you that they will no longer be insuring patients at Holyoke/Chicopee Health Centers. Don't worry. To make sure you continue to get the health care services you currently have, we are taking the following steps:
The state has agreed to automatically transfer your insurance coverage to MassHealth PCC Plan as of January 1, 2017.
You do not have to do anything to continue to be covered under MassHealth for all of the health care benefits you currently have.
Your provider at Holyoke and Chicopee Health Center will continue to care for you and coordinate any additional health care services you are eligible for, including: medical, dental, pharmacy, hospital care, eye care, behavioral health care, and referrals.
We are proud you have chosen us to be your health care provider. We look forward to continuing to care for you and your family in the years to come.

Everseat finds open appointments at Holyoke Health and posts them on the app for patients to book themselves online or through their smartphone!
Everseat appointments are specifically for follow-up and sick visits, these appointments cannot be used for physicals and new patient appointments. Patients must book appointments with their primary care provider.
