For years during Heart month we have talked about how we have the power to prevent heart disease and stroke by knowing the importance of eating well and exercising, managing blood pressure and cholesterol, and smoking cessation.
We also have the power to ACT in the event of an emergency.
This year, as we celebrate Heart month, we are drawing attention to our important partnership with the Emergency Department and Emergency Medical Service providers in our region and what you can do in the event of a cardiovascular emergency.
YOU play a significant role in an emergency…Be prepared!
Yesterday, at our Cancer Care Center’s Holiday Open-House the Ladies’ Plastic Golf Organization presented the Foundation with a check for $33,000 from this year’s golf tournament! This dedicated group of ladies has been donating to our Breast Health Fund for the past 13 years. In 1999, Dee Ketner reached out to the Cancer Care Center because her sister in Massachusetts was diagnosed with breast cancer and she wanted information and ways to give her support. Our breast health nurse, Martha Osborne, RN, met with her and gave her the information she needed and explained ways that Dee could support her sister even though she was 3,000 miles away.
The California State-wide disaster drill was held last week and Pomona Valley Hospital Medical Center participated in a big way! We activated the Hospital Incident Command (HIC) and implement a response for a major earthquake on the nearby San Andreas Fault.
