Rochelle Harper, Bay St. Louis, MS

Late night rock n’ roll gigs can be tough on a person’s health. Rochelle Harper of Bay St. Louis knows firsthand and appreciates how easy it was for her and husband Gary Boswell to establish relationships with primary care providers at Hancock Medical Center. Hancock’s family medicine practice in Bay St. Louis has been a convenient option for their family.

“We’ve planted roots in the Bay, and it has everything we need, including great healthcare,” said Harper. “I see primary care physician Dr. Becky Hollibaugh at Hancock Medical, and the hospital’s Physical Therapy Department has helped me with back issues.”

Rochelle’s mother visits from Oregon often, so they have peace of mind that services are available in their community for the entire family.

“Mammograms, x-rays and general health and wellness visits are convenient for us at Hancock Medical,” Rochelle said. “We are able to view records online and communicate with our doctor if we have a question that doesn’t require a visit.”

For musicians on a busy performing schedule, healthcare with peace of mind at home in Hancock County hits all the right notes.

Bay St. Louis Chiropractor Billy Powell and wife Trinity recommend the First Impressions Birthing Center at Hancock Medical Center to all their friends with growing families.

“Trinity would like to have another child, and if we do, it will be at Hancock Medical with Dr. Noel,” said Billy. “All three of our children were born there, and each was a unique experience.”

Dr. Noel Duplantier and Dr. Dimitri Yanez of the Hancock Women’s Center deliver on average over 200 babies each year at Hancock Medical.
The Powell family makes their home in rural Kiln, Mississippi and are glad to have medical services within reach.

 “When your wife is expecting and it’s go time, it is nice to know the services you need are right here, close to home,” said Billy. “If we are blessed with another child, we will welcome the new addition with open arms at Hancock Medical.”

Mother Suzanne Truett, Daughter Katharine Ohman, Bay St. Louis, MS

Suzanne Truett, in her mid-seventies, phoned her daughter Katharine early one morning reporting serious physical discomfort. Fortunately, she lives next door, so Katharine was able to assess the situation quickly and drive her approximately three miles to the emergency room at Hancock Medical Center. There, the personnel recognized the seriousness of the situation and moved her into a private room while the evaluation continued along with medical tests.

“With each test result, it became clearer that her condition was indeed grave and that major, immediate surgery was needed,” said Katharine. “The intervals of the testing allowed me time to update various family members.”

Katharine said local family members were able to visit her mother due to the cooperation of all involved Hancock Medical staff. As her mother was prepared for surgery, Dr. Brian Anthony explained the procedure and concerns as well as the possible outcomes.

“His confident bedside manner and presentation of information was instrumental in reducing a very stressful situation for our family,” Katharine said.

“Throughout the surgery, the nursing staff kept the family updated,” said Katharine. Upon completion, Dr. Anthony addressed the family members present and was ready with answers to their questions.

“There is little doubt that the operation saved Mother’s life,” Katharine said.  “For the wonderful service, professionalism and understanding by the Hancock Medical staff on that day and during the weeks of recovery, our family will be forever grateful.”
