Samaritan Heartspring Wellness Center welcomes osteopathic physician Hannah Eucker, DO
, who will care for patients at both Heartspring locations, in Albany and Corvallis.
Eucker earned a bachelor’s degree in physics from John Hopkins University and a medical degree from Midwestern University – Arizona College of Osteopathic Medicine. She completed a family medicine internship at Eastern Maine Medical Center in Bangor, Maine, and an osteopathic manipulative medicine residency at St. Barnabas Hospital in Bronx, N.Y.
With training and experience in osteopathic manipulative medicine
, Eucker treats a wide variety of health issues using her hands to diagnose, treat and prevent illness or injury. During her four-years at St. Barnabas Hospital, she gained experience treating a wide-variety of conditions for patients of all ages, including infants.
“When I discovered osteopathic medicine, I became truly excited about life as a physician,” Eucker said. “What struck me was the philosophy of holism – seeing each individual not as a set of isolated parts stuck together to create a whole, but as a whole to begin with, with all of the cells, tissues and organs moving and breathing together as one dynamically-functioning unit.”
In her free time, Eucker often attends conferences and courses that will enhance patient care, focusing on topics such as osteopathic medicine, Qigong and Yoga. Recently, she completed Yoga and Qigong teacher training courses. She also likes to spend time outdoors hiking, camping, rock climbing and “anything that involves being in the sun and nature.”
Eucker is happy about moving to Oregon, to be closer to family members and to work at Heartspring.
“I was immediately impressed by the Samaritan Heartspring integrative medicine clinics in Albany and Corvallis,” she said. “The staff and practitioners are friendly and knowledgeable, and they will be good to have as colleagues as I develop and grow my practice for the people here in Oregon.”
Eucker is accepting new patients at both Samaritan Heartspring Wellness Center locations. For more information, call Samaritan Heartspring Wellness Center in Albany
