    Highlands Health’s 9,000th and 9,001st patients say thanks for ‘life-saving’ aid

    (by David Hurst –

    SOMERSET- After Harold “Pete” Henry was prescribed insulin last fall, he didn’t even bother to pick up his first dose. With his family’s monthly prescriptions costs already eating up almost half of their fixed income, Harold and his wife, Trina, said that another $120 co-pay would have meant dropping different medications or “going hungry”. They ended up spending their 48th anniversary at UPMC Somerset after complications from Pete Henry’s untreated diabetes nearly took his life, Trina Henry said. “We knew it was a risk, but what else could we do?” she said. “we couldn’t afford it”.

    Through help from Highlands Health, that has changed, the Henrys said during an interview on Thursday at Highlands Health’s Somerset Clinic. The New Centerville couple were recognized as the clinic’s 9,000th and 9,001st patients in its history across the Cambria Somerset area.
