Consistent Community Service

Cascade Medical's ambulance team recognized for excellence.

EmergencyMedical-ServiceAwardLeavenworth, WA — After voters overwhelmingly supported to retain Emergency Medical Services in the Upper Wenatchee Valley last summer, Cascade Ambulance continues to receive accolade for their extraordinary level of service.

Operated within Cascade Medical Center, the ambulance team has been awarded the 2012 EMS Service Award, presented by the Wenatchee-based 911 dispatch, RiverCom. "We're honored for this recognition," said Brian Pulse, Director of EMS at Cascade Medical, "our success is a reflection of seasoned medics whose longevity, experience and training creates efficiency in all we do."

Since 2006, RiverCom has presented the annual award. Nominated directly by the 911 dispatchers, according to Jackie Jones, Operations Manager with RiverCom, "It's rare for an entire agency to receive this recognition, which is based on providing a consistent and professional partnership with RiverCom 911."

 

Community-owned and Community-focused

Cascade Medical's annual food drive yields high results.

CMC-food-drive-2013Leavenworth, WA — Each month, the medical providers, administration and staff at Cascade Medical (CM) internally highlight one of their shared values. "For March, our focus was 'Community' ... one of the seven principles we embrace as our community's medical center," said Diane Blake, CEO, "More than words, our aim is to consistently apply the values; reminding us why we do, what we do – everyday."

Giving back to the community, beyond quality healthcare, CM held an organization-wide food drive this past March. "We wanted to help meet a need in our broader community at a time of year when donations are typically less, but the need is just as great," said Jill Barich, Executive Assistant at Cascade Medical. Once the idea was decided, the Employee Activity Committee sprang into action. As a volunteer group, comprised of medical center employees, the effort brought together a variety of contributions from each department.

Wildfire Smoke and Your Health

Written by Lucca Criminale, PA-C on Wednesday, 12 September 2012. Posted in Health Tips

With over two-hundred wildfires touched off by lightening in mid-September, here are some helpful tips to minimize the impact of smoke on your health.

Minimize time spent exerting yourself in areas heavily affected by smoke from wildfires.

You are particularly susceptible if you have pre-existing respiratory conditions, such as respiratory allergies, asthma, and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD). Be sure you are taking your medications regularly, and if you experience any of the following, you should be seen at the clinic:

  • Inability to breathe normally
  • Cough with or without mucus
  • Chest discomfort
  • Wheezing and shortness of breath

Please note: Standard, paper filter masks do not protect you from smoke inhalation, only from large particles such as sawdust.

For a full list of precautions and preventative measures, visit the CDC website:
