Absorbable Stent

NEW Absorbable Stent Technology

Comanche County Memorial Hospital is the first hospital in the state of Oklahoma to perform a fully dissolvable stent procedure outside of a clinical trial.

The Absorb dissolving heart stent is the first and only device of its kind – a drug eluting coronary stent that dissolves, completely and naturally, in the body over time. Absorb treats coronary artery disease like a standard metallic stent, propping the diseased vessel open to restore blood flow, but then disappears after the artery is healed, leaving no metal behind to restrict natural vessel motion.

Survival Flight Ribbon Cutting

Ribbon Cutting for Survival Flight

The Survival Flight, a service provider for Comanche County  Memorial Hospital, announced their official opening with a ribbon cutting with the Lawton Fort Sill Chamber of Commerce Red Coats Friday.  The Drewry Family Emergency Center supporters, Stephanie and Bill Drewry, were in attendance to help in the celebration along with local and surrounding area police, fire and emergency personnel.

Stories From the Heart

Five years ago this past September, my Dad, Jim Mulkey, had an accident in which he broke his neck and suffered a spinal cord injury. He was left partially paralyzed and as a result of complications from the fractured vertebrae, he had to undergo the insertion of a peg tube for his nutrition, and later, a tracheotomy. After a lengthy eight month hospital stay where he completed intense rehabilitation, he was able to return home. Doctors from the Memorial Medical  Group(MMG), and their staff, have been a wonderful resource in managing my Dad’s ongoing overall care since his return home.

 

With the challenges my Dad continues to face, sometimes, emergency situations involving his health can arise. When they do, we are so fortunate to have access right here in Southwest Oklahoma to outstanding, personalized care at the Drewry Family Emergency Center. My Dad has been treated four times over the past four years. The doctors, nurses and staff have done a great job meeting his very specialized needs. Our family is so grateful knowing that help is right here at home when and if we need it.

 

Despite all of the obstacles my Dad has faced, he has continued to progress every year since the accident and is now walking! Thanks to CCMH for helping us along the journey!

 

“Care such as this is why I continue to support Comanche County Memorial Hospital Foundation’s goal: To reinvest all profits back into Comanche County Memorial Hospital for renovations, improvements, and the purchase of new advanced technology and equipment. I hope you will join me and consider ending the year with a gift to support Southwest Oklahoma’s community hospital.”

In 1951, Comanche County Memorial Hospital was founded by a group of community leaders with the charitable mission of ensuring the availability of medical care to all, regardless of social status or ability to pay. These visionaries, led by such people as Margaret Day, Charles Green, MD; Charles Graybill, MD; Emma and “Curlee” Tomlinson, had a goal of building the most technologically  advanced and modern hospital in the country.

Today we still strive to achieve that goal and we need your help to continue this legacy. Your contributions help fill the gap of funding needs for equipment, technology, capital projects and education.

You can make a difference!
