A bad cold can make you feel just as miserable as if you had the flu. After a week of feeling awful, many people wonder if they need an antibiotic to get better.
Bon Secours Richmond Health System welcomes Elna Kochummen, MD, who started this summer at Pediatric Endocrinology and Diabetes Associates.
Dr. Kochummen has degrees from Kasturba Medical College in Manipal, India and completed her pediatric residencies at the Children’s Hospital of the University of Illinois and at Jersey Shore University Medical Center in New Jersey and her pediatric endocrinology fellowship at SUNY Downstate Medical Center and Kings County Hospital Center.
Congrats to Diane Pelkey, RN, Palliative Medicine, Patti Zavitz, RN, Hospice, and Marc Flickinger, MD, Pallative Medicine are the 2017 winners of the Sr. Elizabeth Durney awards for providing outstanding care to patients facing the end-of-life.
This award is given in memory of Sr. Elizabeth Durney, a Sister of Bon Secours who helped to found Bon Secours St. Mary’s Hospital. Sr. Elizabeth’s most enduring legacy is the hospice program.
