Dear members of our community,
s usual, spring is a time of great energy at the Hospital and in the Foundation. Planning is moving forward on the major Hospital Expansion project and you will begin hearing more about that in our next issue. The hospital is full most of the time and everyone is working hard on our patient experience. All hospital employees have been attending HRO (High Reliability Organization) training to ensure the safest possible environment for patient care. Itâ€™s a time of change for me as I transfer the leadership of the Foundation to Jared Bogaard, Executive Vice President of Bogard Construction and long-time Foundation board member as well as former Holidays dâ€™Eleganz Chair. Coming into the position with great enthusiasm, I am sure that Jared will leave a strong legacy of increased support to the hospital. I will remain in the position of past president for the next two years so will still be very involved. Additionally, I was honored to be asked to join the Hospital Community Board, a position I gladly accepted. We continue to put your funds to good use for the community. In our articles you will read about the improved lung care with the new tumor biopsy equipment provided by the Foundation and our efforts to improve patient care in our cancer center. New Wellness classes have been added and we encourage you to peruse the PEP classes listed in the back half of the magazine. And we are actively beginning construction of our third Healing Courtyard project with two new gardens: Nello and Pamela Santacroce Meditation Garden and the Dr. Joseph T. Anzalone Family and Newborn Care Garden. Stay well and have a terrific summer! As always, your support is deeply appreciated,
Carol Lezin President Dominican Hospital Foundation

HEALING GARDENS MOVE TO NEXT PHASE
hat do families, newborns, and meditation have in common? They are the two adjoining sides of our next new healing gardens. Right in the middle of the hospital, we will shortly be creating the Dr. Joseph T. Anzalone Family and Newborn Care Garden and the Pamela and Nello Santacroce Meditation Garden. The existing courtyards and gardens are being well used by patients, staff and physicians and are truly creating a healing environment for the hospital. Our next gardens are in the beginning of construction and we are very much looking forward to their openings. We have raised 95 percent of our total goal from over 600 donors so this is truly a community project. You can receive more information by contacting Beverly Grova at 831-462-7712 or Beverly.Grova@DignityHealth.org.

Gala raises over $525,000
he spectacular 2018 Holidays d’Eleganz Gala was a major success. With more than 350 attendees, this event raised over $525,000. Proceeds supported the latest technological innovations in cardiac, acute rehabilitation, orthopedics, cancer, and maternity care—keeping Dominican on the leading edge of everything from emergency medicine to the most complex robotic surgical procedures. “This past event was the most successful yet. I became chair of the Holidays d’Eleganz committee in 2017 when the event consisted of a Luncheon and Gala.” says Rodney Terra, FTG Builders. “As a sponsor, I

also supported the strategic shift to a one-day event. This has made it easier for attendees to gather and really make a huge impact on fundraising for such great causes, not to mention giving a real meaning to the party atmosphere.” At the event, this years’ triple-impact Fund-the-Need supported Dominican Hospital’s new Outpatient Rehabilitation Center, a new Ultrasound machine, and an Advanced Multipurpose Patient Simulator. Over the years, Holidays d’Eleganz has gained significant recognition in our community. Founded in 1987, the annual event has raised over $4.8 million for patient care at Dominican Hospital. We look forward to this year's annual gala on November 16, 2019.

Heart Warming Patient Story
ast summer, while waiting in line for ice cream at the Santa Cruz Beach Boardwalk with his young daughter, software engineer and avid cyclist, Gary Collins, collapsed without warning. “It was a very busy Friday night. The Boardwalk security team performed CPR on me for nine minutes until the ambulance was able to get to me,” says Gary. “Once I arrived at Dominican Hospital, I was immediately rushed to the cardiac cath-lab where they cleared the blockage and stopped
my heart attack. The Dominican ICU put me into an induced coma and brought my temperature down to minimize the brain damage from my cardiac arrest. This is a difficult procedure and not something doctors can manage at all hospitals.” As Gary’s wife, Heidi, made her way to Santa Cruz from their home in Los Gatos, the Social Work team took care of Gary’s distraught 8-year-old daughter in a quiet suite near the ER. Gary spent the next six days at the hospital recovering from his cardiac

arrest, but the nine minutes he was unconscious left him with a brain injury. “My memory was gone,” says Gary. “Every time I would wake up and ask the doctors and nurses the same question, ‘What happened? Is my daughter OK?’” But by the time Gary left the hospital, his cognitive function had significantly improved. Since the incident, Gary’s memory has continued to improve and he is back on his bike building back to his original abilities, but it’s been a long, humbling road to recovery. “At first, I could only take a few steps and I’d be exhausted,” says Gary. “I never thought that the simple little things like taking a breath could be taken for granted.” To show his appreciation for the high level of care Gary received from doctors and nurses at Dominican Hospital, he and his wife made a generous donation to the Dominican Hospital Foundation. “This donation won’t be the last one,” says Gary. “Because an investment in the hospital is an investment in our community. Without Dominican’s excellent care and coordination with community services, I would not be here today.”

“The massage program has been very comforting for my patients; having stress relief and helping with various types of muscular and neuropathic pain. Patients express how much they look forward to their massage and it really lifts their spirits,” says Julie Jaffe, MD, Director of Outpatient Oncology and Hematology.
Employees: The Power of Giving
hrough the generosity of our community of employees, the Dominican Hospital Foundation’s 2019 iGive Employee Giving Campaign was a tremendous success! Over the years the participation in Employee Giving has grown exponentially making our outreach profoundly impactful.

The involvement of over 500 of our community of employees leads the way for others to get involved. This year’s focus was the expansion of oncology massage therapy hours at the Katz Cancer Resource Center, housed at the Richard and Mary Solari Cancer Center. Certified oncology massage
therapists provide patients chair massages during infusion treatments and monthly full-body massage. They also teach caregivers how to provide neuropathic massage treatments to help manage pain, reduce stress, enhance ability to cope, and improve feelings of well-being for patients. Employees
Employee donations to the campaign have supported many of the various hospital initiatives and projects over the years. Most recently the campaign contributions have supported the Healing Courtyards project, Employee Wellness Center, and specific departments of the hospital.
Special thanks to our Employee Giving campaign committee and over 30 champions for their invaluable involvement. Also thank you to, Ted Burke, owner of Shadowbrook Restaurant, and Ian Mackenzie, owner of Mackenzies Chocolates, who donate and volunteer their time and expertise towards the annual campaign.

Council members receive an exclusive hospital update from Dr. Nanette Mickiewicz, Hospital President.
WoW Council Takes Off
o ring in the New Year, the Dominican Hospital Foundation kicked off a brandnew Women of Wellness (WoW) Council in January. This first event was the beginning of a council that provides support for women’s health in Santa Cruz County. Members listened to an array of informative presentations from; Dr. Julie Jaffe, Director Outpatient Oncology and Hematology, Dignity Health Medical Foundation; Dr. Jennie Jet, Co-Medical Director of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation; and Karen Gosling, Director of Health and Rehabilitation. WoW is a giving society, requiring a commitment of $1000 per year. The council meets two to
three times annually to learn more about Dominican Hospital’s current women’s health services, identify and understand the need for new or improved programs, equipment, facilities, and to foster relationships. Members have the opportunity to vote annually with their pool of funds to determine which project receives funding. “Our members are being introduced to the current services offered by the hospital, with some insight for potential areas of growth in each department or program. The council is quickly growing, with over 55 members participating and we expect to reach our target of 100 members this year,” says WoW Chair, Allison Niday.
The second event in April was also very well received. Council members heard from other departments including; Dr. Sienna Titen, Obstetrics & Gynecology, Dignity Health Medical Foundation; Dr. Fiona Dulbecco, Cardiovascular Disease, Palo Alto Medical Foundation; and Rachel Ruby, Mobile Wellness Clinic. “The reason I am involved and impressed by the WoW movement is that it is lovely to have a direct effect on giving and a real say in how money is delegated. These involved women are not only donating, but also learning about the hospital and where monies are really needed,” says Carolyn Hyatt, Founding Member.
Each member has the opportunity to receive a personalized hospital tour to learn more about what is currently offered at Dominican and to get a glimpse of what their donations can do for the future of healthcare. For more information on WoW, please visit our website at supportdominican.org/women-of-wellness-council or contact Alex at Alexandra.VanZanen@DignityHealth.org.

Lung Tumor Biopsy System, Providing Earlier Diagnosis
he Foundation recently funded a thoracic navigation system for tumor biopsies of the lung. This technology is a great asset to Dominican Hospital’s oncology program. This technology is not available locally in Santa Cruz County. “We have been sending patients over the hill to get lung biopsies for tumors that are not accessible through conventional bronchoscopy, endobronchial ultrasound or CT guidance, although most patients prefer to have diagnosis and treatment locally,” states Tuong Vu, MD, pulmonologist. “Creating a Lung Nodule Clinic here in Santa Cruz at Dominican Hospital would be a significant advancement.”
The new navigation system provides early diagnosis, allowing curative treatment through surgical resection, and ultimately saving lives. Additionally, this mapping technology can also be used to place markers on small tumors, allowing the surgeons to perform minimally invasive surgery. This lung biopsy system generates a 3D roadmap of the lung and pathways to the tumor, by incorporating CT scan images and electromagnetic sensors which are placed on the patient’s chest during the procedure. Utilizing the most advanced mapping software, physicians are able to follow the shortest or the most accessible
pathway through the airway to the lesion. Also, this system is unique because two different procedures may be performed in one sitting to obtain the tissue for diagnosis; a navigated transbronchial or endobronchial biopsy, and a navigated TTNA (transthoracic needle aspiration). According to Dr. Vu, “Based on experience at other facilities, this new device will provide us the ability to biopsy nodules much sooner, allowing for diagnosis at earlier stages. An earlier diagnosis can lead to finding cancer at stage 1, where the cure rate is at least 80 percent, compared to the average survival rate at just over 1 year at stage 4.”

A Lifetime of Giving
Dr. Keith and Della McKenzie pictured in the Monterey Peninsula Foundation Rehabilitation Garden, part of the Healing Courtyards Initiative which Dr. McKenzie helped to make a reality serving as chair and vice-chair of the committee.
Dr. Keith McKenzie and his legacy of giving back
fter retiring from a long career in medicine, first as a general practitioner in Watsonville and then as an ophthalmologist at Dominican Hospital, Dr. Keith McKenzie keeps on giving back to the Santa Cruz County community by donating his time and resources to the Dominican Hospital Foundation. “I came from humble beginnings and I have been blessed. Doors have opened for me all my life,” says Dr. McKenzie. “So, I see it as giving back.” Dr. McKenzie has donated his time and resources to the foundation in numerous ways since he retired almost 20 years ago. He is an active emeritus board
member, serving on the board from 2002-2014, and played a substantial role in making the Healing Courtyards Initiative a reality as chair and vice-chair of the committee. “It just seemed like the perfect way to improve the hospital because our focus is on the patient,” says Dr. McKenzie. “We want them to feel safe and encouraged when they’re stressed out, and the gardens work great for that.” Dr. McKenzie and his wife, Della, increased their giving to the Dominican Hospital Foundation with a charitable gift annuity (CGA). A CGA transfers ownership of cash or property to the Foundation, in exchange for a tax deduction and
annual income to the donor. The charitable gift ensures that the McKenzie’s will continue to support Dominican Hospital even after he and his wife are gone. “I recommend the CGA (my CPA agrees) because it’s a win, win, win! Real estate or stocks that have increased in value are key to the process. These entities, when donated to Dominican, allow you to deduct the entire value from your taxes, plus capital gains taxes are avoided,” says Dr. McKenzie. “Because it is an annuity, the donor receives a dependable income during his or her lifetime. The donation stays in our community, and goes to improvements in our medical care.”
There are many ways to give and no amount is too small. For more information about Legacy Giving and the Bob Swenson Legacy Society, contact Beverly Grova, VP of Philanthropy at 831.462.7712 or Beverly.Grova@DignityHealth.org.

Santa Cruz County Bank; The Community’s Bank
pening in 2004 as the only locally owned and operated financial institution in the county, Santa Cruz County Bank (SCCB) thrives because of its deep commitment to community reinvestment. “Our values reflect the values of our community,” says Mary Anne Carson, Senior Vice President, Chief Marketing Officer. “From the day we first opened our doors, we’ve displayed artwork by local artists on our walls for the benefit of the public to expose the talent in our community. As part of our commitment to the environment, every branch location is Green Business Certified.” Community involvement is a cornerstone of SCCB’s culture. Bankwide each month, employees choose a local non-profit to donate to, and every staff member, from the tellers to management, volunteer hundreds of hours to the community in various ways. SCCB employees have partnered with the Dominican Hospital
Foundation over the years, as board and committee chairs and members. “As we’ve grown over the past 15 years, we’re able to give more back to our community through individual engagement as well as financial support,” says David Heald, President and CEO. “Dominican Hospital provides vital services to support a healthy community. We are pleased to partner with the Foundation to continue to support a shared vision of healthy environments.” With a new, green office in Downtown Santa Cruz, SCCB is focused on sustainable growth and continuing to strengthen its relationship with the Foundation and the citizens of Santa Cruz County. “Like us, the Foundation continually reinvests in the people of Santa Cruz County,” says David. “We aren’t a transactional bank; we are all about building relationships. We have all the state of the art applications of a big bank. The difference here is the people.”

Committed to Complete Cardiovascular Care
ighteen months ago, Donald Mitchner was an active older adult enjoying many aspects of retired life including caring for his property. One day while clearing brush on his property, Don felt burning and cramping in his right calf. The pain persisted for several months and he was frustrated he could walk only about 100 feet before having to rest. An evaluation with a cardiologist revealed that Don had Peripheral Artery Disease (PAD), a blockage in his lower right leg that was limiting blood flow and causing his symptoms. Don had a stent placed in the affected artery which improved blood flow to his leg. After a brief recovery Don was referred to the next step of his complete cardiovascular care plan, Dominican Hospital’s new Supervised Exercise Therapy for Peripheral Artery Disease (SETPAD) program. While exercising may be the last thing on your mind when your muscles cramp when you walk, it has been shown to be the most effective non-invasive therapy for PAD. Exercise improves circulation in the affected areas and stimulates
the formation of new blood vessels, easing symptoms. The SETPAD program provides structure and support to exercise, a critical component to successfully treating PAD. Dominican’s SETPAD program uses a protocol developed by the American Association of Cardiovascular and Pulmonary Rehabilitation (AACVPR). The program is customized to each patient’s specific needs and involves treadmill walking, stress management, group support and strategies to lower risk factors. At Dominican Hospital we believe it is easier to stick with lifestyle changes when supported by a community. Indeed, Don felt the best part of the program was the consistent encouragement and support from his fellow exercisers and experienced staff. “The encouragement from staff felt like a drumbeat: consistent and positive.” Don graduated SETPAD after 12 weeks of consistent and engaged participation. “I feel like I got my life back. I can do everything I want to do, it’s expanded my horizons and I don’t worry about calf pain anymore.” Don
continues to exercise regularly and says he feels better every day. If you have leg pain when you walk or climb stairs, talk with your doctor. Diagnosing Peripheral Artery Disease is generally quick and painless. Dominican Hospital’s specially trained exercise physiologists, dietitians and nurses are dedicated to helping you achieve and maintain a healthy, active lifestyle. Dominican Hospital is there for you after your cardiovascular procedure or event. From preventive screenings to the latest surgical innovations, Dominican Hospital offers the most comprehensive, nationally recognized heart program in the Monterey Bay region. Our services include prevention, diagnostic technology, cutting-edge treatment, and rehabilitation. Healthgrades has named Dominican Hospital as one of America’s 100 best hospitals for coronary intervention and among the top 10 percent of hospitals nationwide for cardiac surgery.

Fun in the Sun
Get ready for summer! Rather than focusing on how you look this summer, focus on adventure, fresh air, eating seasonally and rest.
Plan a trip.
Studies show that planning a trip can bring as much happiness, or more, than the actual vacation. This is great news, because planning a trip takes much longer than the trip itself. To make the most of it, spend time anticipating your adventure months ahead. Watch videos about interesting activities, read articles about the area and talk to friends or family who’ve visited the area. What is it about your trip you are most looking forward to? Daydreaming about seeing new places, eating new food, trying new things? Or maybe it’s the allure of being away from work, sleeping in, getting a spa treatment, or simply a change in routine. If you are traveling abroad, make sure to check with a travel medicine specialist. Dr Arthur Dover, 831.722.2806, Aptostravelclinic.com is now taking new patients.
Get some fresh air.
Days are longer this time of year so get outside! Studies have shown that being active outdoors has many benefits that gym workouts lack. Make sure to slather on the sunscreen when you are out at peak UV hours, but allow some time to absorb Vitamin D too. There are so many great areas to walk in our county. Grab a friend and go somewhere new, or revisit an old favorite trail or path. You can’t beat West Cliff’s salty air, Nisene Marks’ cool redwood scent, or Wilder Ranch’s plant and wildlife varieties. If you have any questions about your skin health, make an appointment with The Dermatology Surgical & Medical Group, 831.476.2444.
Eat local fresh foods. We are so fortunate to live in such a fertile area. Local fresh foods are incredibly easy to find. Shop at the many farmers markets: • Sun 9 am-1 pm, East Cliff Shopping Center, Live Oak • Tues 2:30 pm 6:30 pm, 120 Russel Ave., Felton • Wed 1pm-5 pm Cedar Street, Downtown SC • Sat 8 am-Noon, Cabrillo College, Aptos • Sat 9 am-1 pm, Mission Street Extension, Westside Santa Cruz • Sat 9am-1 pm, (seasonally May-November) Kings Village Road, Scotts Valley Focus on adding color to each meal you eat to get a variety of vitamins and minerals. Need help with your diet? Consult with the Center for Lifestyle Managements Dietitians, 831.457-7077.
Nothing makes you feel better than a good night’s sleep. Busy travel days can make that tough. Bring a few comforting things along to grab some Z’s wherever the wind takes you. An eye mask, your favorite pillow and a pair of comfortable ear plugs help ensure your comfort. Try and avoid the pitfalls of caffeine late in the day, or a late night cocktail-which may help you fall asleep only to wake you up in the middle of the night. If you are concerned that your sleep is really suffering, call for a consultation, Sleep Health MD, 888.782.7950

Osteoporosis Prevention Testing:
Bone Health 101
steoporosis is characterized by a loss of bone mass, resulting in greater bone fragility, which increases the risk of fracture. Osteoporosis can also cause progressive spinal deformity which can show up as a loss of overall height or a rounded spine. The incidence of osteoporotic fracture is staggering, it exceeds the incidence of heart attacks, strokes, and breast cancer combined. In the 5-7 years after menopause, women can lose up to 20 percent of their bone mass, and 1 in 3 women over the age of 50 will have a fracture related to osteoporosis in their lifetime. Common fracture sites include the spine, wrist and hip. Many people don’t even know they have an issue with their bone strength until they suffer a fracture. Even then, some can go on to have further fractures which put them at a high risk for decreased quality of life, disability and even death. While several risk factors are fixed, such as age, gender, ethnicity and genetics, many more are modifiable, and if addressed, can improve both quality of life and life expectancy.
Modifiable risk factors: • Excessive alcohol consumption • Smoking • Poor nutrition • Eating disorders
•C alcium and Vitamin D Deficiency • Low body mass index • Insufficient exercise • Frequent falls
Prevention of Osteoporosis: Exercise plays a vital role in building and maintaining bone and muscle strength. Muscles and bones respond and strengthen when they are ‘stressed’ which can be achieved by weight bearing and strengthening exercises. Specific exercises can also help to reduce falls by improving balance and ensuring rehabilitation from fractures. Good nutrition is essential to prevent many diseases including osteoporosis. While much attention is placed on getting adequate amounts of Calcium and Vitamin D, a wellrounded diet incorporating most vitamins and minerals from food sources will help reduce bone loss.
Start early: Exercise builds strong bones in youth. It is estimated that a 10 percent increase of peak bone mass acquired during youth can reduce the risk of an osteoporotic fracture during adult life by 50 percent. Children who learn healthy eating habits early on are more likely to build the necessary peak bone mass and maintain these good habits as they age.
Dual X-ray Absorptiometry testing (DXA) is easy and painless and has become the gold standard for measuring bone density, diagnosing osteoporosis and following changes in bone density over time. The National Osteoporosis Foundation (NOF) recommends that you have a bone density test if: • You are a woman over the age of 65, or a postmenopausal woman under age 65 with risk factors • You are a man over the age of 70, or age 50-69 with risk factors • You are an adult with a prior low impact fracture • You have X-rays of your spine that show possible osteoporosis, osteopenia or vertebral fractures • You have a height loss of ½ inch or more within one year, or a total height loss of 1½ inches from your original height • You have a disease, condition, or are taking medications associated with a low bone mass or bone loss • You are taking steroid-type drugs or planning to begin this treatment • You are receiving radiation therapy or chemotherapy to treat breast cancer • You are diagnosed with primary hyperparathyroidism
Treatment: Besides exercise and good nutrition, new medications exist that can treat, prevent, and reverse the effects of many bone diseases. Talk to your primary care doctor if you think you have any risk factors. Once seen as an inevitable part of aging, osteoporosis has become a chronic condition that can be largely prevented and effectively treated.
