Approximately every 80 seconds a women will die from heart disease nationwide. Statistically one out of three of us will die from either heart attack or stroke within our lifespan.  Heart disease has been the number one killer of both men and women at least since the 70’s. We have made significant improvement in decreasing the mortality of men but not a significant decrease in women.  Part of the reason is that our symptoms are not common and standard testing we use such as stress tests many not pick up the disease.

Working over four decades as a nurse, I’ve been privileged to work in different roles.  As direct care nurse in Med Surg, Oncology and ICU, I was able to provide comfort and care to patients and their families at one of the most stressful time in their lives. As Community’s Chief Nurse, I love hosting the nursing scholarship awards ceremony each year and reading the essays from Community Medical Centers’ current and future nurses.

Community Regional Medical Center recently began to offer internet safety classes to educate our employees and the community on the risks to children accessing internet from mobile devices and personal or family computers. It was a powerful, eye-opening experience for many parents and grandparents – hitting on familiar and not so familiar issues such as cyberbullying, sexting, exposure to inappropriate content, posting of personal and indecent photos or information, as well as hackers, predators and harmful “mobile apps” to watch out for.

As Community Medical Centers’ Chief Medical & Quality Officer, I’m exceedingly proud of our clinicians’ and physicians’ work this past year. Each of our three hospitals recently earned full re-accreditation from The Joint Commission with accolades from the Commission’s surveyors.  Atop that, Community was awarded numerous recognitions for excellence over the past year.  

Congratulations everyone for the important strides you’ve made in quality care and improved patient experience.

Last week, Clovis Community held a HealthQuest seminar about “getting inspired to change your relationship with food.” It was a hit and we had over 200 people in attendance. This response just confirms that eating healthy is top of mind for many people who are also seeking the “secret ingredients” to having a healthy relationship with food.
