A message from our CEO Welcome to the first edition of Bartlett Regional Hospital’s renewed, quarterly community newsletter, HouseCalls ! I hope you will find this to be a valuable and interesting resource. In each edition you’ll find information about what is going on at Bartlett, education opportunities, local health care information and contacts, as well as articles about broader health care and wellness topics. In future issues we will feature even more hospital services and departments to help you stay aware of any new developments in our state-of-the-art services and technology. You will also find articles by physician leaders on the medical staff at Bartlett, as well as introductions to new providers in the community. In this edition, the content will cover nutrition advice from Bartlett nutritionist Kari Natwick and an interesting article from our director of Bartlett Beginnings about Bartlett offering pasteurized human breast milk to infants in our OB unit.
