Foundation President's Letter


Dear Community Members,


t is my sincere hope that this letter finds you in good health. We are living and working through stressful, unprecedented times, and the entire team at Dominican Hospital, led by Nanette Mickiewicz, MD, President/CEO, has been exemplary in every way. With a ‘roll-up-your-sleeves’ mentality, our frontline caregivers work around-the-clock to guarantee the safest environment for patients and families, as well as for each other. I am encouraged by their commitment and concern for our community’s well-being. This is where heroism lies, in the simple acts of goodness by everyday people in extraordinary circumstances. As the hospital works to recover from this pandemic, the Foundation is working to provide much-needed support. Now, more than ever, community involvement is needed. Your financial support can have an enormous impact – allowing new treatments to be made possible at the local level.  2020 is off to a strong start in spite of the COVID-19 challenges. In this issue you will read about two recent $1 million gifts. One from a very generous anonymous donor to recognize our frontline caregivers and secondly, a legacy bequest from Napier and Vivian Tooker. We are pleased to share that this summer, we are completing three hospital and community-funded projects—the Comprehensive Cardiac Operating Suite and two additional Healing Courtyards located within the hospital. The Foundation would also like to wish our fearless leader, Beverly Grova, all the best in her retirement beginning July 1. Beverly worked diligently for the Foundation over the last 8 years, and we are truly grateful for her commitment. I would like to take this opportunity to welcome Drew Gagner, Vice President of Philanthropy & Chief Philanthropy Officer to the Foundation. Drew joins us from Dignity Health St. Joseph’s Medical Center-Stockton and has worked at several other Dignity Health Foundations. Drew and Beverly have had the opportunity to work together this spring, ensuring a smooth and natural transition.   Thank you for considering us a top priority for your philanthropic gifts. We are proud of what has been accomplished through the community’s donations, and we look forward to continuing the Foundation’s commitment to Dominican Hospital.   Sincerely,

Thank You to Heroes

$1,000,000 Thank You to Heroes


he COVID-19 pandemic response locally has shed a spotlight on our hard-working and dedicated Dominican Hospital employees. The generosity and support of the Santa Cruz County community has been incredible in so many ways, including an truly amazing gift from one of our generous donors. In April, a longtime friend of Dominican Hospital made a gracious gift of $1 million in honor of Dominican Hospital employees to the Dominican Hospital Foundation. While the donor prefers to remain anonymous, the donor’s wish was to give each employee a check simply to express gratitude for their hard work at the hospital during the COVID-19 pandemic. In May 2020, 100 percent of this gift was distributed to employees who have met a threshold number of hours worked before March 1, 2020. Employees were overwhelmed with gratitude for this direct and heartfelt thank you.


 o the heroes of Dominican, thank T you for standing up (and staying up!) and caring for our community. The humankindness is what makes you heroes! Please accept this donation in recognition of and with great thanks for all that you do. And please know that my heart is with you as we seek to protect and care for each other during this challenging time. With sincere and utmost gratitude, Your community friend and thankful admirer


Outpouring of Support

Support for Frontliners during COVID-19


othing can bring the Santa Cruz County community down. Not even a pandemic. The outpouring of support from our local businesses has been tremendous. With ongoing donations of food and other supplies, Dominican Hospital is feeling the love. Some of these businesses have more than a professional relationship with the


hospital, such as Jamie Smith, owner of Foodsmith. Jamie contacted the Dominican Hospital Foundation to find out if he could help. According to Jamie, “Fourteen years ago we welcomed our son, Jake, into the world. It was a complicated birth and Magdy Ismail, MD, neonatal-perinatal medicine, along with the Dominican

team, saved the lives of Jake and his mother, Kristin. He is now a firecracker of joy and curiosity as any teenage boy should be. And while I can never pay you back for that gift of life, I would like to offer these meals in gratitude for the dignity, grace and courage that you all bring to the hospital each and every day. Especially now, in these uncertain

In Honor of Bill Callahan

The Heart Doctor and The Oysterman


o show her gratitude for the high level of care her husband, Bill “The Oysterman” Callahan, received, Anne Callahan made a donation to honor his cardiologist, Rajinder Singh, MD. Dr. Singh cared for Bill in Dominican Hospital’s Intensive Care Unit (ICU) before he passed away late last year. “The Callahans are a large family, and we were all welcomed to be there with Bill in his last days. It was just a tremendously positive experience, given the circumstances,” says Anne. “I also gave the donation in honor of Dr. Singh who was special to Bill, and was his friend. Bill just loved him.” For nearly twenty years, Dr. Raj Singh was Bill’s cardiologist, and during

each appointment always had time for Bill and his family. “I know he has a practice and a lot of patients that he sees, but it seemed like he was with us every minute,” says Anne. “I don’t know how he did it. He’s a miracle worker! It was incredible, and because of that experience, I wanted to make a donation.” Bill was called “The Oysterman” for good reason. He studied, farmed, sold, cooked, and ate the unique sea creatures for nearly forty years. Bill even taught new generations as a science teacher at Watsonville High School. Bill also donated his oyster bartending services to the Dominican Hospital Foundation’s events like the annual Holidays d’Eleganz Gala.

“Bill always used to call the Gala the heart doctor’s benefit,” says Anne. “He would hold court there and told great stories with a big personality.”

$1 Million Legacy Gift

$1 Million Surprise


completely unexpected bequest of $1 million was recently received from Napier and Vivian Tooker. This bequest was put into place many, many years ago in appreciation of the care they received at Dominican Hospital. Mr. and Mrs. Tooker stipulated that

the funds support cancer, heart disease or blindness and can be used for education, treatment or recovery. The Foundation will be working with the leadership team at Dominican Hospital and the Foundation board to determine the best use of these funds.

The gift was placed in an annuity and the earnings assisted the Tookers' daughter, Patricia. After her passing, the principal was split evenly to benefit Dominican Hospital and Shriners Hospital's for Children. They have left an invaluable legacy that will greatly impact health care in our community.

For more information about leaving a legacy to Dominican and joining the Bob Swenson Legacy Society, please give us a call at 831.462.7712 and visit our website at dominicangiving.org for more examples how you can make a difference with your legacy gift.

Partners in Healthcare


ne of the first licensed surgery centers in California, Santa Cruz Surgery Center is a multi-specialty facility, and offers the entire gamut of surgical disciplines from general surgery, urology, gynecology, to gastrointestinal surgery. When elective procedures were delayed due to the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic, the center’s talented staff were available for routine and preventive care. These included investigative procedures like colonoscopies with gastroenterology specialist, David Anjelly, MD. “We’re all worried about ourselves and our families being infected with the coronavirus, but


other medical issues don’t take a back seat because there’s a pandemic,” says Dr. David Anjelly. “The average person has a one in twenty chance of developing colon cancer in their lifetime, so timely screenings, like colonoscopies, are very important, and we are working through our backlog now that the restriction on elective procedures has been lifted.”

For more than thirty years, the Santa Cruz Surgery Center has worked hand in glove with Dominican Hospital, as the facility is half-owned by the hospital while the other fifty percent belongs to the local physicians who operate there. Because of its close, collaborative partnership with the hospital, the Santa Cruz Surgery Center has been a long-time sponsor of the Dominican Hospital Foundation. “We are committed to serving the community, and with that we are aligned with the Dominican Foundation, and we are proud to be an annual sponsor over the years,” says CEO of Santa Cruz Surgery Center, Lisa Cooper. “The health of our partners is the health of all of us.”

Donuts and Donations: Best Gala Yet!


as it the donuts? The spectacular 2019 Holidays d’Eleganz Gala was a major success. With more than 300 attendees, this one-night event raised more than $534,000, the largest amount in its 32 year history! Proceeds support the latest technological innovations in cardiac, rehabilitation, orthopedics, cancer, and maternal/ child health.

“Each year we like to make strategic shifts hoping for an even more successful event. This time we decided to switch to night-club style seating,” says Rodney Terra, Jr. chair of the Gala committee and board member. “As a sponsor, the new seating turned out great and everyone enjoyed the atmosphere!” At the event, this year’s Fund-theNeed campaign supported three Giraffe OmniBed Carestations, full-service

incubators with radiant warmers, and an Advanced Obstetric Simulator and Infant Simulator. These will strengthen the collaborative teamwork and clinical skills of nurses and physicians. Over the years, the annual Holidays d’Eleganz has gained momentous recognition in our community. Founded in 1987, it has raised more than $8 million for patient care at Dominican Hospital.

Life-Saving Neonatal Care Technology Dominican Hospital’s 14-bed Level III Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) serves more than 350 infants a year requiring complex critical care. Working in partnership with Stanford Children’s Health*, three Stanford Neonatologists are on-site serving babies as young as 26 weeks premature. Born to revolutionize neonatal care training, “Super Tory” is the first newborn simulator developed to meet the challenges of intensive care. Dominican’s NICU providers will train with realistic patient monitoring, active movements, and true ventilation support. Super Tory can simulate complex pathologies or the causes and effects of diseases, and respond to interventions with unparalleled realism. * Stanford Children’s Health matches funding for technology purchases used in our NICU, such as the “Super Tory” and the Giraffe Omnibed Carestations.

INNOVATIVE EDUCATIONAL SIMULATORS “Victoria,” an advanced birthing mannequin, simulates a full range of realistic obstetric and birthing situations. This birth simulator includes interchangeable components, which helps our nurses learn treatment techniques for early pregnancy complications, high-risk deliveries, and postpartum emergencies. 2 0 | FOCUS ON WELLNESS

The NICU comforts and cares for our littlest patients with the use of the Giraffe OmniBed Carestation. The full-service incubators with radiant warmers are vital to helping babies heal and are one of the most advanced, neuro-developmentally supportive environments. The unique design of the bed enables complete access, visibility, and control for caregivers, and allows parents to be close to their babies.

Cardiac Care

Strength in Hearts


ominican Hospital’s nationally recognized heart and vascular program provides the most comprehensive cardiac services in the Monterey Bay area. Our stateof-the-art cardiac catheterization labs and new comprehensive cardiac operating suite ensure that emergencies, as well as routine procedures, can always be accommodated. We deliver a wide range of advanced cardiac care treatments and innovative procedures including minimally invasive robotic surgery and cardiac valve repair, as well as diagnostic technology, preventive education and cardiac rehabilitation programs.


Minimally Invasive Treatments

Restoring Blood Flow, Improving Heart Function Intravascular Lithotripsy (IVL) is a new therapy designed to address calcium deposits that cause severe hardening of arteries by delivering pulses of sonic pressure waves. This allows our cardiac interventionalists to complete the less invasive angioplasty procedure, which improves blood flow to the heart. IVL provides better outcomes and reduces recovery time compared to open surgical procedures, allowing our patients to get back to the things that matter most. Transcatheter Mitral Valve Repair (TMVR), places a Mitra Clip device to your mitral valve. This treatment allows the mitral valve to close, helping to restore normal blood flow through your heart. In addition to shorter hospital stays and a 73 percent reduction in hospital visits related to mitral regurgitation (backflow of blood through the heart chambers). Patients who were studied five years after the Mitra Clip procedure continued to experience improvement in their heart function, quality of life, and ability to perform day-to-day tasks.

Dominican Hospital’s experienced cardiac team was the first in the Monterey Bay Area to qualify and offer the innovative transcatheter mitral valve repair (TMVR) procedure to our patients (see sidebar for more information). From preventive screenings to the latest surgical innovations, Dominican Hospital offers the most comprehensive, nationally recognized

heart program in the Monterey Bay region. Healthgrades has named Dominican as one of American’s 100 best hospitals for coronary intervention and among the top 10 percent of hospitals nationwide for cardiac surgery. At Dominican, you can trust our expert doctors, cardiac specialists, nurses, and staff to help keep your heart beating strong, and prevent problems from developing.

For more information, visit dignityhealth.org/dominican/hearts. This technology was funded through community donations to the Dominican Hospital Foundation. For more information please contact Jerry Souza, Director of Cardiovascular Services @ (831) 462-7243.

Your role in preventing a stroke: Fortunately, there are many positive steps you can take now to reduce your risk: 1. Exercise 2. Improve diet 3. Maintain a healthy weight 4. Reduce alcohol consumption 5. Treat atrial fibrillation (AF), diabetes, and/or high blood pressure 6. Address sleep quality issues 7. Quit smoking

The Art of Deciphering Cryptogenic Strokes


s an American Heart Association and Joint Commission Certified stroke center, Dominican is dedicated to meeting the unique and specialized needs of our area’s stroke patients. In most cases, a stroke is caused by a blood clot that blocks blood flow to the brain. But in one-third of strokes, despite testing, the cause

remains undetermined and is labeled “cryptogenic.” It’s important to dig deeper for a definitive diagnosis to prevent a secondary stroke. A unique collaboration between Dominican’s affiliated neurologists, cardiologists, and primary care providers is helping to reveal the answers needed to provide targeted treatment. Together, this team is collaborating on diagnostic procedures including new cardiac monitoring devices to identify an irregular heartbeat, or atrial fibrillation (AF), and initiate the appropriate treatment.

Know the warning signs of a stroke: • Weakness on one side of the body • Numbness of the face • Unusual and severe headache • Vision loss • Numbness and tingling • Unsteady walk

If you see any of these signs in yourself or someone else, call 911 right away. To learn more about Dominican Hospital’s award-winning stroke care, visit dignityhealth.org/ dominicanstrokecare.

Joint Replacement

Nicholas Abidi, MD, orthopedic surgeon performing, robotic assisted surgery.

Robotic-Assisted Surgery Comes to the Dominican Orthopedic Program


or more than a decade, Dominican Hospital has been using the da Vinci robotic surgery system to provide our community with an array of state-of-the-art, less invasive procedures for cardiothoracic, gynecological, urological, and general surgeries. Now, Nicholas Abidi, MD has brought robotic technology to orthopedic surgery at Dominican Hospital with the OMNIBotics robotic-assisted system. For total knee replacements, this new technology quickly builds a

3D virtual model of a patient’s knee during surgery, without the added radiation and expense of a CT scan. This allows the orthopedic surgeon to accurately plan and execute surgery that is customized to a patient’s knee. The OMNI BalanceBot™ robotic ligament tension device restores proper soft tissue balance and leg alignment, two critical factors to successful knee replacement outcomes. Robotic instruments are used by the surgeon with computer

guidance to ensure the procedure is carried out precisely to plan. “The OMNI BalanceBot™ robotically-assisted knee replacement allows us to improve our surgical precision during knee replacement,” said Dr. Abidi. “We can approach routine and complex surgeries and deliver consistent and reproducible results thanks to computer based navigation and robotically assisted surgical support.” Studies comparing traditional knee replacement to robotic-assisted (R-A) surgery found that the latter delivers measurable improvements in patient satisfaction. Research has revealed that R-A total knee replacements offer real-time information for improved precision and accuracy, and reduced injury to surrounding tissue—resulting in a decrease of complications, pain, opioid drug use, length of hospital stays, and re-admissions. The Dominican Hospital orthopedic program delivers consistently excellent patient outcomes, enabling patients to return home earlier, regain mobility more quickly, and benefit from long-term functional improvements. The addition of robotic-assisted surgery will further enhance the patient experience and help us to even better achieve our ultimate goal—to help our patients regain painfree function, return to a normal daily lifestyle as quickly as possible, and remain active for years to come. “Our Orthopedic Surgery Joint Replacement team at Dominican is excited to bring this game-changing technology to our community,” added Dr. Abidi. “The incredible degree to which it improves both short- and long-term results will help us deliver the best possible experience to our total knee replacement patients.”

Lung Health

Helping You Breathe Easier


s we all have become acutely aware, every day we are exposed to numerous germs, toxins, environmental pollutants, and other threats to the body. Maintaining our immune systems is a constant challenge and vital to staying healthy. The lungs play an essential role in keeping us alive and well by feeding oxygen to every cell in the body. When our lungs aren’t functioning properly, we are at greater risk for health problems including respiratory illnesses, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, and even heart disease.


Thankfully, our bodies have a natural defense system designed to protect the lungs, keeping dirt and germs at bay. As we have heard a lot lately, there are important infection prevention measures you can take to protect your lungs, including: • P  ractice good handwashing, cleansing your hands with soap and warm water for at least 20 seconds, or using alcohol based hand sanitizer when handwashing isn’t available. • G  et immunized for flu, pneumonia, and shingles. • Stop smoking.

• A  void irritants like smoke, second hand tobacco smoke, or fumes. • T  ake care of your teeth and gums. • A  void crowds during cold and flu season. • P  ractice deep breathing. • S  tay hydrated.

In addition to these recommendations, it is really important to improve your emotional wellbeing, which can help strengthen the immune system and improve your outlook on life. The ‘CARES’ approach, was developed by Joel Hughes, Ph.D. from the American Association of Cardiovascular and Pulmonary Rehabilitation.


ommit to living a life rooted in your deeply held values.

ccept what you are feeling in the moment and remember that some level of anxiety or fear is normal.


elax by incorporating effective stress management techniques into your day such as deep breathing, progressive muscle relaxation, guided imagery, or mindfulness.


xercise regularly to optimize your physical and mental health. Aim for at least 30 minutes a day five to seven times a week. Or break it up into 10 or 15 minute intervals several times a day.


chedule regular time for work, school, chores, exercise and sleep. Keep your focus on positive, productive activities. It is also important to get enough sleep and eat well. The National Institutes of Health recommends seven or more hours of sleep per night for optimal health. And eating a healthy diet, including plenty of fresh fruits and vegetables, lean protein, and whole grains, is critical to support your immune system. If you’re suffering from conditions involving your lungs or respiratory system, Dominican Hospital can help diagnose, evaluate, and provide effective treatment. Our comprehensive services include lung cancer screening, pulmonary function testing, smoking cessation support, and pulmonary rehabilitation.

Improved Detection and Treatment of Tumors


ominican Hospital’s Lung Cancer Screening program allows detection of disease at an early stage, before symptoms develop. Research from the National Cancer Institute (NCI) showed that screening people at high risk for lung cancer reduced lung cancer deaths by 20 percent, and estimates that early detection and treatment of lung cancer could save more than 70,000 lives a year in the United States. Last summer, Dominican Hospital began using the new Veran 3D navigational software system to further enhance our ability both diagnose and treat lung cancer. Tuong Vu, MD, a Pulmonologist and Critical Care physician,and Juan Rodriguez, MD, Dominican Hospital Medical Director of Interventional Radiology, have successfully used the software during CT-guided procedures and bronchoscopies (small camera scope inserted into the airway) to target small lesions with exceptional results. “The navigational software helps us to pinpoint pulmonary lesions that would have been difficult to target before,” said Dr. Rodriguez. “We are able to achieve this improved accuracy through the use of real-time placement of needles and instruments—without repeating CT scans and with less radiation.” Funded through community donations to the Dominican Hospital Foundation, the new technology can help find cancers at stage 1—where the cure rate is at least 80 percent— compared to the average survival rate of just over one year by the time the cancer reaches stage 4. “Since introducing the Veran Navigational Biopsy system, we have been able to diagnose cancers more

quickly, allowing patients to begin treatment earlier,” said Dr. Vu. “While the Veran system is used primarily to target lung tumors, we have also successfully performed biopsies of tumors in areas outside of the chest, including the liver and kidneys. Another exciting application for the technology is tumor treatment via cryoablation, or using extreme cold to destroy cancer tissue.” The lung biopsy navigation system generates a 3D roadmap of the lung and pathways to the tumor by incorporating CT scan images together with electromagnetic sensors, which are placed on the patient’s chest during the procedure. Utilizing advanced mapping software, physicians are able to follow the most accessible pathway through the airway to the lesion. In addition to providing earlier diagnoses, the new system allows for curative treatment through tumor removal, ultimately saving lives. The mapping technology also can be used to place markers on small tumors, allowing surgeons to perform minimally invasive surgery. “Not only is Dominican Hospital the first facility in the county to offer this life-saving tool, we are the first to deploy this technology across pulmonary and interventional radiology service lines,” said Dominican Hospital President Nanette Mickiewicz, MD. “This cross-collaboration is helping to significantly improve patient safety for a variety of minimally invasive procedures. It’s part of Dominican’s ongoing commitment to ensure that our community has access to leadingedge technologies and care.” Lung cancer screening is not appropriate for everyone. Currently, it is recommended only for high-risk current and former smokers over age 50 with a heavy smoking history, and a family history of lung cancer.

President's Note: PEP

Although things might be a little different, PEP is still here for you! During this time, many of our classes will be hosted virtually. Please check our website for the most updated information.

Dear Community Members,


o many things in our world have changed since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic. For us, one of the toughest changes has been pausing many of our PEP classes. The safety of our patients and staff always comes first. We sincerely apologize for the disruption, but we need to ensure your health and wellness, as well as reduce risk of community spread.


At the time of printing this catalog, we were still under shelter-in-place orders. This left us unsure of which classes we would be able to offer online or in person from July to December. This being the case, we made the decision to leave off class dates and times to remain as flexible as possible as we transition to a “new normal.� We encourage you to call our office or check the PEP website regularly to learn about our latest class offerings. For the time being, our intention is to offer appropriate classes online. In the coming months, we hope to gradually reintroduce select in-person exercise classes, as we know how important they are for many of you. We are developing detailed criteria for resuming our full inperson class schedule as soon as we

are given approval, based on guidance from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), California Department of Public Health (CDPH), and County of Santa Cruz Public Health Department. As we do within the hospital, we will follow strict infection prevention protocols at every step to ensure your safety.

Thank you for your patience, we hope to see you soon!

Nanette Mickiewicz, MD President/CEO Dominican Hospital
