Affirmation A new year is upon us and we continue to see changes on the Treasure Coast. I’ve noticed service and health oriented businesses growing and expanding, obviously due to our large retirement population. For many transplants the access for exceptional health care facilities is one reason they chose our area. At the same time some of the smaller, family owned business are still struggling through tough economic times. The internet has taken its share of the retail market and has made it harder for the small owner to compete. Our local retailers have shown amazing resilience in adapting to this change by offering unique and custom items not found online. Plus they offer exceptional customer service, a friendly smile and they continually donate to local charities. This year, please shop locally and support those who support our community. You’ll find something special and most likely make a new friend along the way.

T

he year was 1965, and Dr. Kip Kelso dreamed of bringing a first-class hospital to Sebastian. A resident of Roseland, Kelso watched as hundreds of lots were bought and sold in the Sebastian Highlands, and he knew those people would soon need a hospital. When Kelso visited the World’s Fair in New York, he got his first glimpse of a futuristic facility called the “atomedic hospital.” Designed as an exhibit and to serve as a medical clinic for the fair’s 80 million visitors, the mostly aluminum structure was round and windowless – it looked nothing like a typical hospital. Kelso was fascinated by the building, so he purchased it and had the disassembled structure shipped to his property on U.S. 1 near the banks of the Sebastian River. After a long battle with the Florida State Board of Health, a temporary permit to open the hospital was finally granted. But the fight to open the facility had taken its toll on Kelso and his resources. Eventually, there was a change in ownership and a grand opening was planned. But it was not to be – the structure Kelso hoped to be Sebastian’s first hospital burned to the ground in 1971. That fire didn’t stop him, though. Kelso organized a group of developers and consultants to do a feasibility study for a new hospital. Finally, thanks 4

to his perseverance and persistence, Kelso’s dream of a first-class facility in Sebastian was realized in February of 1974 when the 103-bed hospital opened its doors. Later that year, the hospital signed a management agreement with American Medicorp. Humana purchased the hospital in 1978 and added 30 beds, along with wards for obstetrics and substance abuse. It again changed hands in 1993, when Health Management Associates purchased the hospital and began upgrading the facility and its services. In October 2010, a $25 million expansion project was completed. A modern, 16-bed Intensive Care Unit was added along with 42 private patient room suites. Shortly after construction of the patient tower was completed, more than $3 million was invested in a brand-new cardiac catheterization lab. In 2013, a second cath lab was added to meet the demand for interventional cardiology services. Fully accredited by the Joint Commission, Sebastian River Medical Center is licensed for 154 beds and provides personalized, quality health Volume 18 19 • Issue 4 1

care to residents and visitors of Sebastian and the surrounding communities. SRMC’s team consists of over 100 physicians, a nursing and ancillary staff of approximately 500, and a volunteer staff of 200. Sebastian River Medical Center offers a wide array of surgical services, including orthopedic, sports medicine, thoracic oncology, neurosurgery, endovascular and brings the latest technology and treatment to the Treasure Coast. Innovative tools used for surgery include the daVinci® Surgical System, a breakthrough surgical platform that facilitates complex procedures so patients experience less pain and a faster return to normal activities, as well as MAKOplasty® Partial Knee Resurfacing and MAKOplasty® Total Hip Replacement. SRMC offers a full suite of cardiac services including diagnostic and interventional cardiology, as well as hospital-based Cardiac, Pulmonary and Physical Rehabilitation Programs, a Sleep Disorders Center, Sebastian River Home Health and the Center for Wound Care & Hyperbaric Medicine. Those needing emergency medical care can rest easy knowing that the hospital is equipped with a state-of-the-art emergency room, and an ER staff member or physician will see patients within minutes of arrival. Sebastian River Medical Center was given an “A” rating by the Leapfrog Group for two years in a row and designated as a Top 100 Hospital in America by Healthgrades, in addition to consistently being recognized for clinical excellence. SRMC, a Certified Primary Stroke Center, announced a partnership in 2012 with the University of Florida and Shands Health Care in treating heart and stroke emergencies. Thanks to this alliance, SRMC has access to nationally and internationally recognized physicians 24 hours a day, every day. In 2013, SRMC was awarded the Center of Excellence designation by the American Society for Metabolic and Bariatric Surgery (ASMBS) and the American College of Surgeons (ACS). This designation allows Sebastian River Medical Center to provide bariatric surgical care for recipients of medicare and select medicaid plans and recognizes the highest level of quality for weight loss surgery. Sebastian River Medical Center has come a long way since Dr. Kelso first dreamed of opening a community hospital. However, SRMC is proud to say that the main focus for staff, physicians and volunteers still remains clear: to provide quality health care with the highest level of caring and compassion on the Treasure Coast. 6

Look Years Younger with the Vampire Facial! By Kerry Firth

I

believe in aging gracefully and didn’t want to do anything drastic, but the years of playing in the Florida sun was starting to show on my face in the form of fine lines and sunspots. I asked Greer Hanson ARNP and Gerald Pierone Jr., MD of Facial Rejuvenation, FL what I could do to revive my skin and they immediately suggested Dermapen Microneedle therapy – commonly known as the “Vampire Facial”. The Dermapen is a new fractional microneedling device used to tighten, lift and rejuvenate skin by increasing collagen and elastin production. Best results are achieved when combined with the application of Platelet Rich Plasma from your own blood that stimulates collagen growth and accelerates healing. Ok…microneedling? Blood? Healing? I was beginning to feel apprehensive. I can assure you there was no need to be! Let me explain the process to you in laymen’s terms.

10

The Dermapen is a device that looks like a pen but the head is actually a sterile, disposable cartridge containing 12 micro-needles. A thin layer of numbing cream is applied to the skin and the appropriate microchanneling needle depth is selected for your individual skin type. The Pen’s vibrating action feels a lot like a mircrodermabrasion treatment without the suction as it gently penetrates the skin creating hundreds of tiny holes. I promise you, there was no pain or discomfort at all! Prior to the treatment a nurse had drawn a small vial of blood from my arm and put it into a machine that separated the clear plasma, which is rich in platelets www.InsideTrackAlmanac.com


and growth factors. Maria Brown, Facial Rejuvenation’s on site aesthetician, rubbed some of my own plasma over my face and then gently applied the Dermapen creating hundreds of microscopic holes in my face and sending the first layer of plasma under the skin. Immediately after the needling treatment she applied another layer of my plasma on top of the skin where is sank into the tiny holes. What could be more natural than adding back your own blood to stimulate elasticity in your own skin? The whole procedure took less than a hour and I left with a healthy pink glow. I attended a social function that night and people commented that I looked like I had been in the sun. By the next morning my skin looked refreshed and the pink was gone! I can honestly say I saw results immediately, but the fine lines and brown spots continued to fade over the next few weeks. I’m told that dermal colVolume 19 • Issue 1

lagen remodeling takes place over time and it will continue to improve over the next six months. Dr. Pierone recommended a series of three treatments, spaced four to six weeks apart, for optimum results. The Dermapen is extremely versatile and can be used on all parts of the body including face, neck, décolleté’, arms, hands, legs abdomen and back. This makes it especially helpful when addressing acne scars or stretch marks on the body. I just finished my third treatment and I’ve been fielding comments from friends and even strangers I meet about my beautiful skin. Up until now I just told them I’ve been living well! The secrets out now – it’s all thanks to the Dermapen with PRP!!! Thank you Maria, Greer, and Dr. Pierone! For a free consultation regarding a vampire facial or other nonsurgical facial procedures call Dr. Gerald Pierone at Facial RejuvenationFL, 772-978-0484. 11


Your Eyes are a Window to Better Health.

P

oets say the eyes are a window to the soul; but your ophthalmologist knows the eyes are a window to better health. Most of us consider eye exam when our vision changes, but did you know a comprehensive eye exam can uncover evidence of systemic disease? It’s not unusual for your eye doctor to discover cardiac, diabetic, & cholesterol abnormalities during a comprehensive eye exam. They can even detect brain tumors! The American Academy of Ophthalmology estimates that 50% of individuals with potentially blinding diseases like glaucoma & diabetic retinopathy are completely unaware of their condition and are therefore untreated. These diseases are called ‘the silent robbers of vision’; frequently they have no initial symptoms and come on without warning. Early detection can reduce or eliminate the severity of vision loss. Individuals with diabetes are at higher risk for early cataract development and are nearly twice as likely to get glaucoma as other adults, which mean comprehensive exams are doubly important! But even when serious conditions like Diabetic Retinopathy are discovered, treatment can be relatively simple. Regular check-ups and non-surgical interventions can improve eye conditions significantly. Eye exams are an easy preventative measure to ensure healthy sight for life.

Get Busy Living the Modern Way

B

ryan and Ashley Dowdell are Vero Beach natives. Graduating from Vero Beach High, the high school sweethearts chose to attend out of state colleges. They returned to Vero to be married at the Museum of Art, departing again with job opportunities in Kentucky and later, Chicago. With the arrival of their first child in 2005 they returned to this storybook town to raise their family. What they missed when they returned was upscale, modern furnishings that were readily available in Chicago. While there are plenty of furniture stores in Vero, none carry clean, modernistic lines. Get Busy Living was opened May 2013 to meet that need. Ashley also works as a teacher at Beachland Elementary, her childhood alma mater, while Bryan runs the daily operations at Get Busy Living on Royal Palm Pointe. The simplistic showroom has bare concrete floors and exposed track lighting so that nothing draws attention away from the high end furnishings made from environmentally harvested wood and fiber. Modestly priced and unique, GBL has Italianmade clocks, lighting, gifts, and accessories that compliment the classic style. Enjoy an espresso while browsing, or consult with Bryan and Ashley, as they offer design services, event planning, and an array of classes that focus on your creative side so you can “get busy living”.

DOGParks Treasure Coast Parks Are Going to the Dogs….

S

Fortunately, Treasure Coast communities recognize this need and have several designated Dog Parks to visit. Ft. Pierce Ft. Pierce dogs have a new place to run off leash. The City of Ft. Pierce Public Works Department constructed a one-acre Maravilla dog park at 2622 Oleander Blvd. The park includes a pet comfort station with a dog shower and dog drinking

ure walking your dog on the leash around the neighborhood is fun and convenient, but sometimes Fido just wants to get off the leash and run to his heart’s content. There is nothing more joyous than seeing a happy dog running free with his ears flapping in the wind! That is provided he is in a safe, secure environment where he isn’t in danger. Dog parks provide a safe place for loyal, sociable dogs to romp and play with other dogs.

Newly Renovated Ft. Pierce Jetty Inlet Park is Nothing Short of Paradise

A

stroll through Ft. Pierce’s newly improved and expanded Jetty Inlet Park looks like a scene from a Norman Rockwell painting. Couples walk hand in hand along tabby-shelled concrete pathways, families picnic in gazebos and fishermen clean their fish at one of the fish stations. Visitors relax on beautiful mosaic benches while watching the constant flow of boats in and out of the inlet. Children imagine themselves in far away places as they look through the telescopes beyond the inlet and across the ocean. A cyclist adjusts his bike chain at the bike fix it station then continues his scenic ride. And a local resident shows a visitor the turtle tracks left from a sea turtle that deposited her eggs in the middle of the night. At night the park is lit with “turtle friendly” amber lights that not only protect our treasured sea turtles but turn the landscape into a magical wonderland where stargazers get an unobstructed view of the universe. Ft. Pierce Jetty Inlet park is located on Seaway Drive and South A1A where the pavement meets the ocean. Bordered to the north by the inlet and to the east by the Atlantic, the “passive park” is a delight to all who visit. There is no entry fee and plenty of parking so come out and enjoy!

Discover Historic Treasures From The Sea

I

n December of 1992, World Famous Treasure Hunter Mel Fisher opened a permanent museum and conservation laboratory in Sebastian, Fl. Mel started his full-time treasure hunting career in Vero Beach when he moved here with his wife Dolores and family from California. Mel spent the next 7 years successfully salvaging the 1715 Fleet, which sank off the Treasure Coast. They then moved to Key West, Florida in search of the Atocha, a 1622 shipwreck estimated to be worth $400,000,000. In 1985 Mel found the Atocha and became famous. Since 1983, the Fisher family has been in charge of salvage operations off the Treasure Coast. However, all of the recoveries went to their Key West facility for conservation and display. When Mel’s daughter, Taffi, who works with her family in the salvage operation as curator, wanted to relocate to the area in the summer of 1989, her father told her to find a location for a permanent museum and conservation facility. She found an old abandoned fire station and spent a year renovating it. It now houses the working conservation laboratory and first class museum which displays a vast array of artifacts salvaged from the Atocha, the local 1715 shipwrecks, and other shipwrecks. A window from the museum overlooks the lab so visitors can view ongoing conservation of newly salvaged artifacts before they are displayed in the “Recent Recoveries” case. There is also a unique giftshop where you can purchase authentic treasures and “Own a Piece of History”.™
