Community’s employees long committed to our mission of “improving the health of our community” have taken that goal far beyond our hospitals’ walls to work on ways to also improve the health of the environment – which in turn helps us all be healthier. On their own, a group of like-minded, passionate employees formed a Green Team at Community Regional Medical Center, created an organic urban garden out of an unused patio at the hospital, pushed for more recycling in the hospital, and started an annual Earth Day education event to spread their green message.

Congratulations to Emilyn Chee, Mallory Cruz, Mir Hosseini, Nicole Lu, Yim Suwanphattana and Leonard Valdez for passing the exam for Board Certified Pharmacotherapy Specialist!! BCPS certification is a voluntary process by which a pharmacist's education, experience, knowledge and skills in a particular practice area are confirmed as well beyond what is required for licensure. That ought to make all of us proud!

Our clinical lab’s entry way at Community Regional has been brightened for the holidays.  Pathology secretary Rita Canady-Ball is a master builder of gingerbread (and pretzels, candies, snack chips) village scenes.    We think she achieved new levels of design and construction with this year's creation, which we invite colleagues to stop by and see if you get a chance.  Rita spent at least two weeks of her spare time creating this masterpiece.  The entire Community Regional lab thanks Rita for brightening our holiday season!

As human beings, when we allow the beauty and mystery we are surrounded by to be a conscious part of our awareness, life takes on new depth. As a Chaplain, it is a joy to pause for a moment as we celebrate Pastoral Care week, Oct. 22-29,  to reflect deeply on some of what I see happening in the hospital.  Routine visits become deeply soulful encounters and distressing situations become grace-filled moments. I invite you to celebrate with me some of these moments of beauty and mystery:
