Gratitude story - Nhyazia

The Power of Gratitude: Nhyazia’s Story

For Nhyazia-Renee Lovely, going to Newport Hospital to deliver her first child was a “positive and comforting” experience. Partly because her mom had given birth there three times and she had a good idea of what to expect. But mostly because she found the staff at the Noreen Stonor Drexel Birthing Center at Newport Hospital to be kind, compassionate, and highly competent in every way.

varicose veins

Varicose Veins: Causes, Symptoms and Treatment

A Lifespan blog by Jason P. Vachon, MD

Varicose veins are generally the result of abnormal blood flow caused by faulty valves. The veins in the body bring blood from the tissues back to the heart and lungs to get oxygen. Blood can flow the wrong way in diseased veins. This is particularly true in the legs, where returning blood must fight gravity. The result is veins that are enlarged, painful, and unsightly. Varicose veins can develop and worsen as we age.
