Arbors Memory Care Community Wins Family Owned Business Award

Stutchman Family Business Recognized with “When The Going Gets Tough” Award

For the past 40 years the Stutchman family has been in the business of senior care, presently owning and operating Arbors Memory Care Community. During their tenure they’ve seen highs and lows in their business, including economic downturns and the death of a husband/father/principal partner.  Through it all though, they’ve not only survived, but they’ve been able to thrive.

The Stutchman family was recently recognized by the Nevada Business Magazine through the publication’s annual Family Owned Business Awards.  They received the award for “When The Going Get’s Tough.”  The winner of this award is defined as “A business that faced adversity and made changes to adapt to what was sure to be a tough time.”

The magazine received several hundred nominations and narrowed those down to three finalists and then one winner in 10 categories for both the South and North part of the state.

Nevada Business Magazine had this to say about the Arbors, “Founded by Connie and Tom Stutchman, Arbors Memory Care Community is in a tough business, assisted living.  Couple that with the recent economic downturn and the Arbors had to adapt to survive.  Run today by the Stutchman’s daughter, Gina and her husband Jason Lewis, the organization has found a way to adapt their business model and provide affordable, yet quality assisted living.”

Some of the ways the Arbors has adapted is to add triple occupancy to their room mix, creating a more affordable option for families who need care for their over one with Alzheimer’s.  They also began to offer fixed-rate, all-inclusive pricing which enabled families to count on a consistent monthly amount for care throughout their family member’s entire stay.  Lastly the Arbors remodel project has just begun as well which will provide an even brighter and more inviting environment for residents and staff.

“We are absolutely thrilled to win this award and to be recognized by the business community for our years of dedication to quality senior care in Northern Nevada.  We look forward to caring for our seniors and providing jobs in the Reno/Sparks community for another 40 years,” says owner Gina Stutchman.

Arbors Memory Care Community is a locally owned and operated residential community providing care for individuals with Alzheimer’s and other forms of dementia.  The Arbors, which is licensed for 72 beds, consistently receives an A grade in state inspections.

NNMC is the only hospital in Nevada certified by The Joint Commission as a Primary Stroke Center as well as knee replacement, hip replacement and spine surgery. NNMC is also the first program in the nation certified by The Joint Commission in low back pain and is also an Accredited Chest Pain Center by the Society of Cardiovascular Patient Care. Northern Nevada Medical Center is owned and operated by a subsidiary of Universal Health Services, Inc.(UHS), a King of Prussia, PA-based company, that is one of the largest healthcare management companies in the nation.

The Pain Management Center works with patients to identify the source of pain, which may be a specific disc, nerve root, joint or tendon. Physicians then use innovative image-guided techniques and therapies to target the precise area of the pain. 

“The Joint Commission certifications verify that NNMC’s Pain Management Center is truly a center of excellence for low back pain, and this is a major step toward maintaining excellence and continually improving the care we provide,” said Tiffany Meert, Chief Operating Officer, Northern Nevada Medical Center.

“In achieving Joint Commission certification, Northern Nevada Medical Center has demonstrated its commitment to the highest level of care for its low back pain patients,” said Jean Range , M.S., R.N., C.P.H.Q. executive director, Disease-Specific Care Certification, The Joint Commission. “Certification is a voluntary process, and I commend Northern Nevada Medical Center for successfully undertaking this challenge to elevate its standard of care and instill confidence in the community it serves.”

On the eve of National Pancake Day, International House of Pancakes (IHOP) is delivering short stacks to patients at Renown Children’s Hospital. The “breakfast for lunch” will be served with special toppings to children without diet restrictions at the hospital from 11:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m., Feb. 4.

The annual National Pancake Day effort is designed to raise money and awareness for Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals, a non-profit organization dedicated to saving and improving the lives of children, by raising funds for children’s hospitals throughout the United States.

Tuesday, Feb. 5, IHOP guests can enjoy a free short stack of pancakes between 7 a.m. and 10 p.m. at any local IHOP in Reno, Sparks, Carson City and South Lake Tahoe. In return IHOP asks that guests donate what they would have spent on the pancakes to Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals. On this day, the restaurant chain hopes to raise more than $3 million nationally to kick off the 2013 fundraising year for Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals.

Guests are also encouraged to buy a Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals paper balloon for an additional dollar that will be placed on the wall with a name. “Miracle Balloons” will be sold for $1 and $5 each. Miracle Balloon sales offer guests another way to show their support of Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals and contribute to the fundraising effort locally in northern Nevada.

This will mark the eighth year that IHOP has held National Pancake Day, which to date has raised more than $10 million dollars nationally for Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals and other local charities. In northern Nevada, Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals has partnered with IHOP since 2006 and has raised more than $38,800 to benefit Renown Children’s Hospital. All funds raised at local IHOP restaurants will be donated directly to Renown Children’s Hospital.

To help meet the need of patients in northern Nevada seeking more convenience and greater access to their primary care physician, Renown Medical Group is pleased to announce the addition of Quinn Pauly, M.D. as a new Premier Care physician.

Dr. Pauly is board certified in family medicine. He received his medical degree from the University of Nevada, Reno School of Medicine and completed his residency at Natividad Medical Center in Salinas, Calif.

The Premier Care Program, first introduced to the region through Renown Health last October, offers patients greater access to their primary care physician beyond traditional scheduled office visits. The program is based on a national trend and is made possible through a reduced practice size.

“Patients are requesting enhanced access and expanded personalized care,” said Larry Trilops, vice president of Ambulatory Services at Renown Health. “This program allows us to meet customer demand.”

What’s the difference?
Renown Medical Group offers same or next day appointments with your doctor if he’s available or another doctor, within Renown’s Medical Group consisting of more than 80 providers and 15 locations, if he’s not.

In contrast, the Premier Care program offers more access through a reduced practice size. With monthly membership fees (not covered by insurance) ranging from $35 – $55, you may communicate directly with your primary care physician 24/7, including weekends.

“My focus has always been to take time to listen to my patients so I can attend to their healthcare needs thoroughly,” Dr. Pauly said. “I enjoy getting to know my patients and their families and strive to give my patients personalized, compassionate care”.

Key Premier Care Benefits include:
• A smaller, low volume practice.
• Convenient appointments with your dedicated Premier Care physician with little to no waiting guaranteed.
• Online communication directly with your physician, regarding scheduled appointments, sick visits or general medical advice, with a response within 24 hours, seven days per week.
• Extended office time for appointments.

Hometown Health Offers Drive-Thru Flu Shots at Renown South Meadows

Hometown Health and Senior Care Plus will provide northern Nevada residents with the convenience of drive-thru seasonal flu shots, Saturday, Oct. 6 from 8 a.m. to noon, at Renown South Meadows Medical Center, 10101 Double R Blvd. This event is one of more than 45 scheduled Renown Health flu and pneumonia shot offerings around the Truckee Meadows community this season.

“The drive-thru flu shot event is one of our most popular events because of the ease and convenience it offers,” said Ty Windfeldt, vice president of Hometown Health. “Depending on wait times, the entire process can take as little as 10 minutes. It’s great for people who know they should get the shot or want the shot but have trouble finding the time to fit in a visit to their doctor’s office.”

Flu shots are offered at no cost to Medicare beneficiaries (Part B), members of Senior Care Plus or Hometown Health fully insured HMO and PPO plans and Renown Health employee plan members. All other individuals can receive the seasonal flu shots for $28. Pneumonia shots will be offered for those people whose medical conditions could be helped by one (individuals must meet CDC requirements). There are no out-of-pocket costs for Medicare (Part B), Senior Care Plus members or Hometown Health fully insured HMO and PPO plan members. For all others, the pneumonia shot is $70.

“The Center for Disease Control (CDC) recommends a flu vaccine as the first and most important thing people can do to protect against the flu,” said Lori Mitchell, health management services manager at Renown Health. “Additional preventive actions like washing your hands regularly and covering your cough will help stop the spread of germs.”

If unable to attend this flu shot event, people are encouraged to visit renown.org/flu for a complete flu and pneumonia shot schedule and locations. Pediatric flu shots are available by appointment only for children ages six months to eight years old. Call 775-982-5433 to schedule. Flu shots are available to children ages nine to 17 with a parent present.

Renown Health Board Member and Volunteer Recognized with NHA Awards

Filed under: Press-Media Releases 

Lawson Fox, Renown Health board member, and Dinah O’Brien, Renown Health volunteer, were presented with awards at the Nevada Hospital Association (NHA) annual Membership Meeting Awards Luncheon late last week at the Hyatt Regency Lake Tahoe. Fox received the Award for Trustee Excellence and O’Brien receive the Excellence in Volunteerism Award.

The two awards recognize one urban hospital and one rural hospital trustee and volunteer who have made an exemplary commitment to his/her hospital and contributions to improve his/her hospital’s service to its patients and community. Since their establishment, these awards have recognized a number of distinguished health care leaders throughout Nevada.

Fox has served on Renown Health boards for more than 8 years. During his tenure, he has overseen the implementation of quality tracking mechanisms for delivering quality care in the emergency departments of Renown Regional, Renown South Meadows Medical Center and the health network in general. In addition, his efforts of monitoring employee survey data have helped to provide consistent exceptional patient experiences.

O’Brien has been the volunteer coordinator of the Pet Therapy Program at Renown Health since the Healing Arts Program began more than 16 years ago. She is also a Volunteer Patient Visitor, a program that began in September of 2011 designed to empower volunteers to help with the patient experience.
In addition, she considers her years at the main reception desk at Renown Regional among her most significant contributions.

“Lawson and Dinah’s support throughout the community is truly a gift to northern Nevada. They are tremendous assets here at Renown,” said Jim Miller, president and CEO of Renown Health. “These honors are well deserved and both Lawson and Dinah should be commended for the genuine difference they have made and the many lives they have touched.”

In addition to individual awards, both Renown Regional Medical Center and Renown South Meadows Medical Center received NHA awards for quality. These awards mean medical professionals working at Renown South Meadows and Renown Regional provided treatment known to get the best results for patients.

Formally established in 1960 and incorporated in 1971, the Nevada Hospital Association (NHA) is a not-for-profit, statewide trade association representing 100 percent of Nevada’s acute care hospitals along with psychiatric, rehabilitation and other specialty hospitals as well as health-related agencies and organizations throughout the state. Allied with the American Hospital Association, NHA is an independent organization headquartered in Reno, Nevada. As a membership organization, NHA serves as a statewide resource and leader in promoting public understanding of, and support for, the health care system serving Nevada’s communities. In addition, NHA serves its members by providing education, information and representation and by serving as a catalyst in collaborative efforts to produce quality, adequately financed health care in Nevada.

Introducing the Circle of Life Hospice Foundation Thrift and Gift Boutique Theater

Circle of Life Hospice Foundation Thrift and Gift Boutique Theater

Established in the Fall of 1999, Circle of Life Hospice seeks to become one of Nevada’s most respected human services organizations. Their aim is to assist patients with their human needs, their relationship with those they love, their greater power, their spirit and themselves.

It is the cause of the Circle of Life Hospice Foundation, the non-profit “sister” organization to the Circle of Life Hospice, to raise funds through charitable giving and charitable events necessary to improve end-of-life care through research, education, services and facilities that would otherwise be unavailable. Circle of Life Hospice Foundation is grounded in the belief that life and death are but one. Death is a natural part of life and as with any part of life, dying is a time for love, personal growth and healing. Because of the nature of hospice care, these efforts have been primarily focused on those who are terminally ill and the loved ones who support them. It is the goal of the Circle of Life Hospice Foundation to extend the services and philosophy provided in hospice care to the entire community.

The Circle of Life Hospice Foundation Thrift and Gift is a not-for-profit 501C3 tax exempt organization devoted to providing information, education, and conscientious conversation on hospice and other mind-body-spirit healing services within our community and throughout the world. It is the vision of Founder Deb Girard, and with assistance from Gayle Johnson, Director of Operations, to equip Northern Nevada with a comfortable way for loved ones to let go of “gently used” belongings of those who have passed. Revenue generated by the resale of such items will be given directly back to the community through coordination with other local support services. Additionally, the Circle of Life Hospice Foundation Thrift and Gift Boutique Theatre is a community center hosting a local artists’ gallery, a gathering place for intentional social interaction, theatrical educational performances and health resource classes.
