Our professional health staff can help you find information.
Looking up health information on your own can be overwhelming. Our professional staff can help you check out books, CDs and videos. They can look up quality health information ranging in topics from cancer to nutrition to alternative medicine — and can teach you how to find the best health information for yourself or your loved ones.
The Cushman Wellness Center Community Health Library and its services are available to patients, families and anyone in the community.
Our services are available for the community.
- Anatomical models of the human torso, heart, eye and kidney — our staff can explain these models, which can be easily assembled and are a favorite of visiting families.
- Music and headsets you can borrow so you can listen to relaxing music and guided imagery music therapy during your visit or procedure at the Sharp Memorial Outpatient Pavilion, and while at home. Music can also be purchased.
- Health-related gifts such as head covers for cancer patients, books, DVDs, jewelry, essential oils, healthy snacks and more.
