VCU HEALTH CMH CUTS RIBBON ON NEW FACILITY

South Hill, VA – History was made on Saturday, October 14, 2017 as officials cut the ribbon for the new VCU Health Community Memorial Hospital (VCU Health CMH). 

Officials participating in the ribbon cutting were from VCU, VCU Health and VCU Health CMH.  An open house followed where the public was given the opportunity to see the new state-of-the-art 167,000 square foot facility for the first time.

Wayne Parrish, Chairman, VCU Health CMH Board of Directors, started the ceremony by addressing the crowd in attendance by saying, “Two years ago on a warm October day I stood before you and sang a song; a beautiful morning, a beautiful day and a wonderful feeling, I won’t sing today but I will share this seed that was planted that day. A certified seed, that states 100 percent germination with a maturity date of October 2017; right on schedule. These are the people that made it happen, DPR Construction, JLL and the Smithgroup JJR. Today we are here to see that this seed has grown, with God’s help, into the beautiful structure before us.”

W. Scott Burnette, CEO, VCU Health CMH, said, “Over the last two years I have been talking about the new era of health care for this region.  The facilities you see before you are the physical manifestations of the beginning of that era.”  Burnette also added, “Through this site, and in partnership with VCU Medical Center, MCV Physicians and the many other divisions of VCU Health, we will be able to deliver an integrated, multi-discipline model of health care that combines the best of community medicine with world class academic medicine to the citizens of Southern Virginia and Northern North Carolina.”

Burnette received a standing ovation from the crowd of more than 500 when he was introduced.

Michael Rao, Ph.D, President, VCU and VCU Health System, said, “This new world class facility becomes the standard for community hospitals anywhere. This is a really important day because we will be able to save and improve lives that we could not have touched in the same way without this facility and without all these great people that will fill this facility.” 

Marsha Rappley, M.D., CEO, VCU Health System, VCU Vice President for Health Sciences said, “This is a joining of two institutions that share a very important value and that is a dedication to be here when you need us; getting the right care to the right person in the right place and doing it at the right time and that’s the future of medicine.  The future is not going to be about people traveling long distances if they don’t have to.”

“What we’re celebrating is not only a building, but the commitment the people of this community have to make sure that quality health care is being provided locally and in facilities that warrant and support the team members providing it,” said Deborah Davis, Chief Operating Officer, VCU Hospitals, VCU Health System.  Davis also noted that the new facility will feature an “integrated care” environment where the facility and team members work in unison to promote health and healing.

Linda Powers, MD, Chief of Staff, VCU Health CMH said, “I can promise, from the medical staff currently, that we will do our very best to provide the best medical care we can.”

Burnette said that the new hospital will become a health care destination for the region.  “Our affiliation brought together two organizations that have had a history of and continued passion for quality and patient safety.  Combining that commitment with state-of-the-art facilities and technology will allow for a level of service that will truly set VCU Health CMH apart from any other hospital in this region and perhaps the state.”

Nancy Bradshaw, President, CMH Auxiliary and Joanne Bedford, Chaplain, VCU Health CMH also addressed the crowd.

The new hospital will not officially open until November 11, 2017 and the Obstetrics department will officially open on November 20, 2017.

The new VCU Health CMH features 70 private patient rooms. The facility also includes three operating room suites, a cesarean section suite, a 16-bay emergency department and an Obstetrics department with four LDRP rooms (Labor, Delivery, Recovery, Postpartum).

The new hospital also features a permanent cardiac catheterization lab to provide the most advanced cardiac care in the region and a full complement of diagnostic services including MRI, CT, nuclear medicine, cardiac, vascular and pulmonary studies.

Sixty-three years ago, Community Memorial Hospital opened its doors to serve the health care needs of the community.  Now, as VCU Health Community Memorial Hospital, medical services will grow to greater heights and VCU Health CMH is set to become a regional destination for advanced medical services right here at home.  The future of health care for this region is bright and with the support of VCU Health, on November 11, 2017, “We’re opening the doors to a healthier future.”

VCU Health Community Memorial Hospital (VCU Health CMH) is a nonprofit hospital that is dedicated to being the leader in health services for the south-central region of Virginia and portions of northern North Carolina. VCU Health CMH offers quality, state-of-the-art health care in a convenient, friendly setting, in the town of South Hill, VA.  VCU Health CMH is affiliated with the VCU Health system.

VIRGINIA STATE POLICE PARTICIPATE IN EAST COAST DRIVE 2 SAVE LIVES TRAFFIC SAFETY INITIATIVE

15 State Law Enforcement Agencies Focusing on Interstate 95 Safety

RICHMOND – Virginia will be among 15 states to participate in a two-day “Drive to Save Lives” traffic safety initiative that coincides with National Teen Driver Safety Week. On Friday and Saturday, Oct. 20-21, 2017, Virginia State Police will be dedicating additional patrol resources to Interstate 95 traffic enforcement. Motorists can expect to see an increased presence of troopers along Virginia’s entire 179 miles of I-95, from the border of North Carolina to Maryland.

“With traffic deaths in Virginia having dramatically spiked this year in comparison to 2016, this multi-state operation could not come at a more critical time,” said Colonel W. Steven Flaherty, Virginia State Police Superintendent. “Traditionally there is always an increase in the number of traffic crashes on Virginia’s highways during the last three months of the year, so it is even more imperative for every Virginian to ‘Drive to Save Lives’ no matter the distance of one’s travels.”

As of Oct. 19, 2017, there have been 638 reported traffic deaths on Virginia highways. On the same date in 2016, there were 568 reported traffic fatalities, which means 70 more persons have lost their lives in traffic crashes this year than last on Virginia’s roads.

Tragically, 22 of those 2017 traffic deaths in the Commonwealth have been teenagers between 15 and 19 years of age.* With this initiative being held during National Teen Driver Safety Week, it’s important to highlight the fact that half of all teens will be involved in a car crash before they graduate from high school. Also, according to the National Organization for Youth Safety:

  • 66% of teen passengers who die in a crash are NOT wearing a seatbelt
  • 58% of teens involved in crashes are distracted
  • 25% of car crashes involved an underage drinking driver

“Parents and guardians set the example for their children,” said Flaherty. “If the adults buckle up, comply with speed limits and eliminate distractions while driving, then they pass along smart, safe and responsible driving practices for their children and young drivers to emulate.  Let’s prevent crashes and prevent injuries and fatalities by simply driving to save lives.”

Also participating in the East Coast I-95 traffic enforcement operation are State Police and Highway Patrol agencies from Maine, New Hampshire, Massachusetts, Rhode Island, Connecticut, New York, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Delaware, Maryland, North Carolina, South Carolina, Georgia, and Florida.

With increased patrols, State Police also remind drivers of Virginia’s “Move Over” law, which requires motorists to move over when approaching an emergency vehicle stopped alongside the road. If unable to move over, then drivers are required to cautiously pass the emergency vehicle. The law also applies to workers in vehicles equipped with amber lights.

Pass Your Forest Forward; Keeping A Forest in the Family for Future Generations

by Neil Clark, Forestry Extension Agent

More than 10 million acres of Virginia’s woodlands belong to nearly 374,000 family forest owners, 51 percent of whom are 65 years of age or older.  Some have owned their land for generations; others, only a few years. As they look ahead, many landowners want to keep their forestland intact and  in the family, but they don’t know where to begin or how to engage the next generation of owners. The upcoming “Family Forest Landowner" workshop introduces concerned landowners to the options available to transfer their land and legacy to the next generation. 

“Focusing on Forestland Transfer to Generation ‘NEXT’” is being offered November 2 and 9 at the New Kent Forestry Center near Providence Forge, Virginia. This two-day program will help family forest landowners successfully plan the transfer of their woodlands, intact, from one generation to the next. Current and future owners of family woodlands will learn family communication basics, estate planning tools and succession planning strategies to help sustain their family woodland legacy.  Speakers include legal and financial experts experienced in estate planning; forest landowners who have worked through succession planning, and natural resource professionals who work with landowners to conserve and manage land.

“Few challenges faced by Virginia’s family forest landowners are more important than the concern of passing the family land and carrying its stewardship forward to the next generation,” said Mike Santucci, assistant director of forestland conservation with the Virginia Department of Forestry (VDOF). “Family forest landowners own their woodland for many reasons.  A consistent theme is that nearly all of them express a deep connection with their land and a desire to ‘do the right thing’ and leave a lasting legacy to their heirs.” 

Acknowledging the hard decisions landowners can face in deciding to make a succession plan for their property, Adam Downing, extension forestry agent with Virginia Cooperative Extension's Northern District region said, "Sometimes it's difficult for landowners to consider - 'what will happen to my forestland beyond my lifetime'? While many want to pass their forestland on to family members, only two percent to three percent have a plan in place to do so.  Without  a plan, landowners stand to lose more than just the property out of the family.  They risk their family heritage and a portion of the wealth they have accumulated over the years.”

Santucci said, “We’re on the verge of a huge intergenerational land transfer of forestland in Virginia. The decisions made by family forest owners, including how they will pass their forestland forward to future generations, play a crucial role in maintaining a viable forestland base in Virginia. These family woodlands are relied upon for not only the sustained flow of forest products, but for invaluable natural benefits, such as clean air and water, wildlife habitat and overall quality of life.”

Registration is now open through October 24th for the next offering of this award-wining and practical short course. Past participants have reported significant planning progress; thousands of dollars of financial savings, and family engagement as a result of this investment.

The workshop is co-sponsored by Virginia Cooperative Extension and the VDOF, with support from the Virginia Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services, the Virginia Forest Landowner Education Program at Virginia Tech, Virginia Tree Farm Committee, The Black Family Land Trust.

VSU To Host 30th Annual Aquaculture Field Day

The status of small-scale freshwater aquaculture in Virginia is the theme of the 30th Annual Aquaculture Field Day being held Oct. 19 beginning at 8:30 am at Randolph Farm, 4415 River Road, Ettrick. The Cooperative Extension Aquaculture Program at Virginia State University hosts this annual event.

Dr. Brian Nerrie, assistant professor and aquaculture extension specialist, will give this year’s keynote address. His talk will focus on how the industry has diversified since 1988 from the initial emphasis on hybrid striped bass to recent expansion into freshwater shrimp in ponds and greenhouse aquaponics.

“Today, there’s a growing awareness by consumers of quality food, and locally produced aquaculture fits in with that,” Nerrie said. “Locally produced fish is healthy, available fresh to consumers and helps local economies.”

This year’s field day will provide the opportunity for registrants to rotate between multiple stations featuring pond production of catfish, largemouth bass, bluegill and freshwater shrimp. In addition, pond cage culture and aeration systems will be presented. Indoor stations will include aquaponics, tilapia production, tilapia hatchery and a small aquaculture product taste testing.

Virginia State University’s Aquaculture Program conducts important research in freshwater aquaculture, provides an important resource for limited-resource farmers and helps determine what consumers want. Through its research and outreach efforts, Virginia State University’s Aquaculture Program, as part of Virginia Cooperative Extension, is contributing to Virginia’s $91 billion agriculture and forestry industries.

Registration is $20 per person and includes lunch. Farm-raised catfish will be served for lunch. To register visit www.ext.vsu.edu/calendar, click on the event and then click on the registration link. 

If you need further information or are a person with a disability and desire any assistive devices, services or other accommodations to participate in this activity, please contact Debra B. Jones at dbjones@vsu.edu or call (804) 524-5496 / (800) 828-1120 (TDD) during business hours of 8 am. and 5 p.m. to discuss accommodations no later than five days prior to the event.
