Flu Shots Available

Flu shots available at Hutchinson Health. Get yours now, and be prepared before influenza season arrives. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recommends getting your flu shot before the flu begins spreading in your community. After receiving your vaccination it takes about two weeks to build up antibodies that help protect you from the flu. Getting a shot after influenza season starts is still helpful, but getting it early provides the most benefit. Stop at Hutchinson Health Monday - Friday from 8am - 4:30pm and ask for a flu shot. We'll get it taken care of - no appointment necessary. The flu shot is offered at Hutchinson Health. The flu mist will not be available this year. Learn more about the CDC's projections for the 2019-2020 influenza season and the vaccination available. Stop in and get your flu ... Continue Reading

Blue Cross Blue Shield Network Change

Network change for small group of Blue Cross Blue Shield members We recently learned that Blue Cross Blue Shield had notified a small group of members that Hutchinson Health would no longer be considered in-network as part of their health plan. This change impacts a limited number of plans sold by BCBS featuring a narrow network that until now, Hutchinson Health had been a part of. This change does not impact other contracts between Hutchinson Health and BCBS. This change was scheduled to take effect September 1, so we immediately reached out to BCBS. BCBS has since agreed to delay the effective date for this network change to December 31, 2019. This is important because it provides patients more time to consider an alternative plan, and occurs during the normal course of the annual enrollment selection period. If you have any ...

April Wellness Wisdom

This is Peg Christenson, Registered Nutrition & Dietetic Technician, from Hutchinson Health with Wellness Wisdom. April is National Pecan Month so be sure to try a handful of these delicious tree nuts! Did you know that pecans are the only tree nut that grows naturally in North America? The name “pecan” is a Native American word of Algonquin origin that was used to describe “all nuts requiring a stone to crack.” It is said that Native Americans first cultivated the pecan tree. (https://tinyurl.com/yxavcfb2) I remember visiting a pecan farm when I lived in Las Cruces, New Mexico. Pecan harvesting is fascinating! Machines called shakers hold and shake the trees causing the nuts to fall on the ground. Next a sweeping machine picks up the pecans; ejecting debris out the back of the machine. Pecans are more popular than ever being used ... Continue Reading
