his issue of FOCUS represents a significant change with the Dominican Hospital Foundation now partnering with the Dominican Hospital PEP program on each issue. The name change from FOCUS on Health to FOCUS on Wellness reflects healthcare’s intent to increase preventive health. The classes and correlating articles do just that and we hope you take advantage of the opportunity to create and healthier and happier you. The first part of this issue highlights the work of the Foundation and the generosity of the community in improving the hospital’s programs and services. This is followed by the PEP class listings and articles regarding hospital developments. As an organization, we reach for the stars with the new robotic technology just funded, and we ground ourselves in the beauty of the new Norman & Maureen Benito Surgery Courtyard with its waterfall, flowing water and lush plantings. Many community members joined us as we welcomed back the koi and the turtles in October with a dedication and blessing. In an effort to bring a greater emphasis to women’s healthcare, you will read about our new women’s giving society, Women of Wellness, which is off to a strong start. I am encouraged by the amazing women who are working to launch this new council and the more than thirty founding members that are defining the group’s impact. As we continue to engage and connect our community, I know you will enjoy reading about the art partnership with the Santa Cruz Museum of Art & History. And I know you will enjoy viewing the artwork that is displayed throughout the hospital. As always, your support is deeply appreciated.

Improving the Hospital Experience: A Dedication The Norman And Maureen Benito Surgery Courtyard, Isabel Wallace Bartfield Terrace, Surgery Lobby And Consult Room Celebrated On October 21, 2018 A special thanks to the Healing Courtyard Committee: Joe Burton, Chair, Dr. Keith McKenzie, Vice-Chair, Chip Bogaard, Michael DeArmond, Sarah Edmundson, Michael Hollister, Carolyn Hyatt, Janet Krassow, Sister Mary Ellen Leciejewski, Dr. Patty Kubo Lezin, Jared Marks, Ken Morena, Timothy Morgan, Nancy Woolf
Maureen Benito named the courtyard in honor of her husband Norman. The Benitoâ€™s have a long history with Dominican going back to the original Sisters Hospital. 6 | FOCUS ON WELLNESS
Dedication The Norman and Maureen Benito Courtyard was designed by Joni Janecki, Architect and constructed by FTG contractor. Allied Landscaping did the planting. Bogard Construction built the Surgery Lobby and Terrace, designed by HGA.
Plantronics helped by naming the pond in the new courtyard where our koi and turtles will return from their â€œstaycationâ€? at Frederick Street. The Monterey Bay Koi Club is offering their volunteer expertise to insure the best possible environment for our pond inhabitants. Joe Burton, CEO, chairs the Healing Courtyard committee.

Sister Rita led the blessing of the new area with the assistance of Sister Adrienne. Hospital employees and community participated. A reception followed with donations of Driscolls berries and music by Joe Ferraro.
Michael and Denine Butcher named the Consult Room in honor of parents, Poppi and Nonni. Mike and Denine felt the opportunity for physicians to meet privately with family and friends to review surgery outcomes was essential.
Physicians have actively participated in this project and a special donor wall in the Surgery Lobby recognizes their support. The glass etched panels were designed and created by Heather Glass.

New Rehabilitation Center
Foundation Supports New Pediatric Gym or years, Santa Cruz County’s pediatricians, and physical and occupational therapists faced an unexpected challenge when treating young children with spectrum disorder, sensory processing and motor coordination issues. “Part of the way to assess a child is by watching them in an environment—what they seek and avoid—and we didn’t really have the space to do that before,” says occupational therapist Beth Ralston. “We couldn’t get the full picture.” When Dominican Hospital sought a new location to house its Outpatient Rehabilitation Center, the space for a new pediatric
therapy area was included in the plans. After a long search, the hospital acquired the former Sports Authority building on Madrone Street in Santa Cruz. Now completely remodeled, the new center provides therapists and patients the ample space they need to learn and play. Although, space wasn’t the only obstacle for therapists and patients. The center’s staff needed equipment to fill the new pediatric gym. The Dominican Hospital Foundation was eager to help and provided the funding to make it a reality. “The Foundation has always been extremely supportive of rehabilitation work, and we are very grateful for that,” says Program Director Leah Santos.
Through a generous donation from PG&E’s Better Together Giving Program, the new pediatric gym now has balance beams, swings, crash pads, and even a climbing wall.
“ You can do so much with each piece of equipment,” says Occupational Therapist Jen Beck. “For example, the climbing wall helps with strengthening and motor planning, which is a huge problem for some kids. But if you can work on those challenges when they’re young, in a safe space, it makes all the difference.”

Working with the MAH, the Foundation will be borrowing, on long-term loan, 30 pieces of two-dimensional art to place throughout the hospital. The first pieces will be installed in and around the new Surgery Lounge. A new art committee is working to bring art that is calming, uplifting and supportive of the hospital’s efforts to create a healing environment that incorporates nature and art. Recent studies have shown that art can have a beneficial effect on health. “Arts in health and healing is the integration of any art form to a wide variety of healthcare and community settings for therapeutic, educational, and expressive purposes and has been proven to benefit patients, their families, and their caregivers.” —American Council for the Arts We hope our visitors, patients, physicians and staff receive calming benefits viewing this new art throughout the hospital.

Betsy Andersen, Executive Director of Museo Eduardo Carrillo, has facilitated the donation of major works by former UCSC art professor, Kathryn (Kay) Metz. As a grateful patient, Kathryn donated her art in recognition of the care provided by nurses at Dominican. Her donation includes both large and small oil paintings, woodcuts and watercolors.

Women of Wellness Founding Members
A New Voice for Women ominican Hospital was founded by the Adrian Dominican Sisters more than 75 years ago, has been led by women ever since, and continues to be a welcoming place for women’s voices to be heard. While the hospital offers a wide range of high-quality services specifically for women, Dominican’s goal is to continue to expand and improve upon these services. To help further that goal, the Dominican Hospital Foundation formed a brand-new Women of Wellness (WoW) Council. “The goal of our new WoW Council will be to encourage a broad range of women to get involved and help chart the course for the hospital's future with regard to women’s health needs,” says Women of Wellness chair, Allison Niday. “At the same time, this group will be exposed to the wide array of services currently available, as well as the potential for new or expanded services to be offered in the future.”
The Women of Wellness Council is a giving society that requires an annual donation of $1,000 for membership. The council will meet a few times a year to examine the health issues in the community, understand the desires of hospital staff to enhance its services and support the funding needed to do so, and develop and grow personal relationships. Once a year, the council will decide how to direct its monies to expand or improve women’s health programs at the hospital. “There will also be a significant educational component to the Council,” says Niday. “Even after being a patient or family member of a patient at Dominican for years, I honestly was impressed with the high quality of services we offer to our community. We rank at the highest levels across the nation in cardiac care, cancer care and obstetrics/gynecology. I would love to get women excited about what we are doing, and even more excited

n June 2018, the Dominican Hospital acquired the advanced da Vinci Xi surgical robot with the aid of nearly $2 million in community donations to the Dominican Hospital Foundation. “The hospital’s staff and patients are already discovering the benefits from this cutting-edge surgical robot,” says Dominican Hospital President, Nanette Mickiewicz, M.D. “We are grateful for the Dominican Foundation and their help in making this technology available to our community.” With the addition of the da Vinci Xi, the Dominican Hospital’s specially trained surgeons now have increased dexterity, the power to examine areas under surgery with an enhanced 3-D view, the ability to make body parts "glow" with Firefly fluorescence imaging, and an extra
pair of hands they can always rely on. “It gives you a third arm,” says obstetrician Dr. Sienna Titen. That’s what the robot does. It allows me to perform a difficult surgery on my own.” In the short time since the Xi was added to Dominican’s robotic program, surgeons have utilized the advanced technology for gynecologic, urologic, cardiac, and general procedures, among many others. “Having the new robot at Dominican to serve the communities of Santa Cruz is a good example of the top-notch care that the hospital provides locally,” says Vice President of Strategy and Business Development, Susan MacMillan. “Robotic procedures mean better patient outcomes, from reduced scarring, to shorter recovery times. We want our community to be healthy, and quicker recoveries from surgery is part of that.”
Dominican Hospital Foundation acquires the da Vinci Xi surgical robot for hospital Dr. Sienna Titen specializes in obstetrics and gynecology, and is seen here training on the new da Vinci Xi.

The da Vinci Xi is optimized for complex four-quadrant surgery featuring revolutionary anatomical access, crystal clear 3DHD vision—further enhancing the vision, precision and control of the surgical procedure.

Twenty years later, Peixoto foresaw that the future of farming was in organics, and in 1995 founded Lakeside Organic Gardens, which has grown into the largest family-owned, solely organic vegetable grower in California. Dick’s son, Rickey, operates a tractor for the family business, his daughter Amanda takes care of accounting, and his oldest daughter, Ashley, helped him to open their restaurant, California Grill. The Dominican Hospital Foundation has put the investment by the Peixoto family in the Katz Cancer Resource Center to good use. Over the past few years their support has helped to provide expanded services to the Watsonville community in the form of a bilingual nurse navigator, financial counselor, massage therapist and more.

A new study led by the Barcelona Institute for Global Health (ISGlobal), has concluded that cycling for transport is associated with the greatest health benefits; better self-perceived general health, better mental health and fewer feelings of loneliness.
ENVIRONMENTAL BENEFITS: Considering that over 50 percent of greenhouse gas emissions generated in Santa Cruz County come from transportation, every mile a person bikes saves approximately one pound of carbon dioxide of being emitted into our atmosphere. If everyone in this county were to even make a slight shift in how they move around, the collective impact would really start to add up.
WHAT IS SANTA CRUZ DOING TO PROMOTE BIKE USE? We are blessed to have abundant natural beauty and many trails that emphasize the natural splendor in Santa Cruz. Mountain Bikers of Santa Cruz have worked to support, preserve, and expand trail access and responsible mountain biking since 1997. They have partnered with State and City Parks as well as local businesses to build and enhance a multitude of trails, and have several exciting projects in the pipeline. For more information check out www.MBOSC.org Ecology Action lead the Bike to Work program and have seen more than 1,200 bike commuters participate in the twice-a-year Bike to Work Day. More than 4,500 students bike and walk for Bike/Walk to School Day. In September 2018, Ecology Action piloted a workplace bike challenge, in which Dominican was one of 18 participating organizations from around Santa Cruz County. Two hundred eighty six participants rode 34,426 miles, logged 4,400 trips, and saved approximately 10,837 pounds of
carbon dioxide from entering our atmosphere. Find out more at ecoactbike.org The new JUMP electric bike share program has been incredibly successful in the City of Santa Cruz. With more than 200 bikes total in the current system there is an average use of six trips per bike, per day, and in August 2018 alone, JUMP bike users rode 86,000 miles. In addition, local cities and unincorporated areas have installed many new bike facilities, such as the new Branciforte Creek San Lorenzo Walkway Bridge, numerous green bike lanes, and bike boxes at busy intersections, further encouraging bike transportation. All these efforts are starting to pay off, according to U.S. Census Bureau data, the City of Santa Cruzâ€™s bike commuter rate is 9 percent, which is one of the highest in the entire country.

he holiday season can be filled with joy and cheer—a time to reunite with family and friends. Shawn Smith MFT, CADCII, and Executive Director of Coastal Turning Point, reminds us that it is also a time when self-care can fall by the wayside. Sometimes holidays bring feelings of loss, difficult family dynamics, and loneliness leading some to turn to food. This year make a commitment to take care of yourself. Exercise regularly, eat well, rest up.
s Ti pFROM MELISSA DEVERA, RD: Eat before you go out. Whether heading to a party or holiday shopping, it’s harder to make good choices when hungry.
1. Slow down, be selective:
Whatever food you choose, eat slowly and enjoy the experience. Drink some water, wait 10 minutes before that second helping. You might just realize you’re full.
2. Seek healthy options:
Choose the smallest plate available and wander around the buffet before selecting anything. Start by filling the bulk of your plate with fresh vegetables, fruit, and plain chicken. Add some indulgences in small portions.
3. Distance yourself from the
table: Stay far enough away from the food to prevent mindless grazing. Pop a mint or gum in your mouth to keep from sampling the chips.
4. Drink to your health: Eat
something before you drink. Be smart about your drink choices. Eggnog has 500 calories, but wine, beer and mixed drinks have only 150-225. Alternate drinks with still or sparkling water; you’ll thank yourself in the morning.
5. Cook from the heart: Show
family and friends that you really care about them. Be creative with recipes. Use less butter, cream, and other ingredients rich in saturated fats.
6. Balance extras with exercise: Put on your dancing or walking shoes. Suggest a family walk between dinner and dessert.

play together. Oliver, who primarily uses a wheelchair, usually sits on the sidelines while his sisters Evelyn and Lauren play. In December 2013, the family returned to Santa Cruz with a burning mission; to ensure that every child in Santa Cruz County could play together with family and friends, regardless of abilities. They embarked on a five-year
journey, creating the Santa Cruz Playground Project, engaging partners along the way, to conceptualize, design, plan and build an inclusive playground: LEO’s Haven at Chanticleer Park. Mariah Roberts, Director of the Chanticleer Park Neighbors Association joined the mission, and they have worked steadily to build a group of volunteers

working in a public-private partnership with Shane’s Inspiration and the County of Santa Cruz to bring LEO’s Haven to fruition. The County of Santa Cruz agreed to provide the additional funding to complete the project only after $2 million was raised to start it. Money has been raised in many ways; from children forgoing a birthday in lieu of donations to LEO’s Haven, or setting up a stand to sell cookies, to hard-won grants and the dogged participation of individuals and service organizations. In just under three years of fundraising, the Santa Cruz Playground Project has achieved
its mission! The last public fundraiser was held over three days in September 2018, with 70 riders cycling from Healdsburg to Santa Cruz in the Santa Cruz Sunrise Rotary Bike Ride. Expect to see construction start at Chanticleer Park in 2019. This community jewel will benefit every family and child in our county. A recent article in The American Academy of Pediatrics (Vol. 142, Number 3, 9/2018), states that “Play provides a singular opportunity to build the executive functioning that underlies adaptive behaviors at home; improve language and math skills in school; build the safe, stable and
nurturing relationships that buffer against toxic stress; and build socialemotional resilience.” In addition, the physical exercise involved with play also has welldocumented health benefits, including promoting healthy weight, reducing the risk of childhood diabetes, and developing healthy cardiovascular, neuromuscular, and musculoskeletal systems. For children growing up with physical and/or sensory challenges, play is critical to maximize development and reduce isolation, and the construction of LEOs’ Haven at Chanticleer County Park will help accomplish these goals for all children.

Katz Cancer Resource Center
Promoting calm in an anxious time… tudies have shown that stress correlates with heart disease, endocrine disorders, and other inflammatory diseases, including cancer. Going through cancer treatment is enormously stressful, not only for the person going through treatment, but also on the entire family. Research shows that meditation and massage can help reduce symptoms of stress, enhance the ability to cope, and improve feelings of well-being in patients with cancer. The Dominican Hospital Foundation and the Adrian Dominican Sisters wanted to
help. In May 2017, the Adrian Sisters awarded a grant to the Foundation of $18,000 for the Katz Cancer Resource Center. It established an Integrative Medicine program providing massage to patients, family members, and oncology staff at the Mary and Richard Solari Infusion Center at Dominican Hospital. The benefits of the massage program were soon realized by the patients and staff. Jane Ann Clemens, Certified Oncology Massage Therapist, now provides free massage three days a week at the Katz Center. Patients receive either a foot or a back/neck massage while receiving their infusions. They
are also offered a free monthly full-body massage (if medically appropriate) at the Katz Center. Clemens teaches caregivers how to provide “neuropathic massage treatments” to help manage hand/foot pain which can occur with cancer treatment. The Sisters’ generous grant also provides funding for education of the oncology staff in the use of Mindfulness-based Stress Reduction techniques taught by Dr. Robert Stahl. Training allows staff to better care for themselves while caring for patients. The Foundation continues raising funds for this program. To participate, call (831) 462-7712.
