Guthrie now offers coliform and E coli bacteria water testing for residential properties.
Homeowners using cisterns, wells and springs for water should get their water tested regularly to be sure it’s safe to drink. Many pollutants to drinking water have no obvious symptoms and about 50 percent of private water systems fail at least one drinking water standard. Having water tested regularly is the best way to ensure it remains safe to consume.
Guthrie will host a number of musical performances to spread cheer this holiday season. Performances will be held in the Clinic Atrium on Guthrie’s Sayre Campus and are planned for the following dates:
Guthrie employees are encouraged to donate non-perishable items for Dutch’s Food Stand to help those seeking treatment for substance abuse and addiction to eat healthier. During the holiday season, collection bins will be located in the 3 Sumner Lobby in Sayre, Clinic Atrium on the Sayre Campus, and Corning Centerway Lobby, now through Dec. 18. Volunteers will transport donations to Dutch’s Food Stand for distribution to clients.
Guthrie will host two sessions of a live webinar in December for patients interested in learning more about bariatric surgery.
The webinars will take place on Dec. 18 at 12:30 p.m. and Dec. 20 at 6 p.m. and will feature Guthrie Bariatric Surgeon, Dr. Mustafa Aman. The sessions will include a short presentation about the benefits of surgical weight loss and a question and answer session with Dr. Aman.
