Be Thankful…


e’ve all heard the story of the first Thanksgiving in 1621, when the pilgrims in Plymouth Colony shared a meal of thanks with the local Indians after the crops were harvested following a brutally cold winter in New England.

by Debra Taylor

undeniable, unalienable rights. We have been given a specific day in the middle of the week to eat wonderful Thanksgiving food like lamb, turkey, dressing, candied yams, and homemade rolls. We have been given time to fellowship with family & friends. We have been given an opportunity to be thankful.

President George Washington was the first to declare a Thanksgiving holiday in 1789. By the mid-1800s, many states celebrated Thanksgiving, but it wasn’t until 1863, when Abraham Lincoln attempted to unite the Nation during the Civil War, that he declared the last Thursday of the month, Thanksgiving Day.

We cherish our children, families and friends and the blessings they are to us. When we sit down on Thanksgiving Day to feast on a meal prepared with love –be it at our home or at your favorite eatery – we must remember those less fortunate, our soldiers stationed all over the world who cannot be with us, and those beloved Today, it is as important as ever to unite and celebrate whom we have lost. We must never forget to be thankful Thanksgiving with food, family and friends! There is in all circumstances, for all things. no better time to count our blessings, and offer prayers & words of thanks for our loved ones, our health, and We are blessed to live in a paradise known as the West our homes. This is not always easy in this day and age Coast of Florida. Whether you travel “home” to be with due to the political and economic challenges we face as family, your family sojourns here spending the holiday a people and a nation. However, setting politics aside, with you, or you find yourself in one of our wonderful, we must never forget the sacrifices that have been made local restaurants, be thankful! so that we may exist in a free, democratic society with

“Life is short. Be Thankful & Celebrate your Family.”

Debbie Humphrey has a heart the size of Ohio, her native state.


he has proven that in her 34-year marriage to Robert, her three adult children, her six grandchildren and to the many clients she has assisted in her business, Home Helpers.

Debbie worked at Wachovia Bank for 22 years. In that time, she discovered many of her elderly customers needed help and companionship. It broke her enormous heart to see what was happening. “Older people would come in with piles of mail they didn’t understand,” Humphrey recalled. “Many of them were taken advantage of financially. Others just wanted someone to talk to.” When Wachovia offered early retirement, she could not agree to retire fast enough. She longed for a way to help seniors like the ones she had met while working at Wachovia. That is what prompted her to open her own business: Home Helpers, in Holiday. Her mission is dedicated to helping seniors remain independent and secure in their homes. Her 28 employees provide homemaker and companion services and transportation for the elderly in West Pasco and North Pinellas counties. This service is invaluable to her clients, and most certainly is gratifying for herself and those she employs. To grow her business, Debbie began networking in various groups and organizations. As a member of the Tarpon Springs Chamber of Commerce, she served on the Board of Directors for one year, as Ambassador for two years, and currently chairs the Health & Wellness Committee. Debbie is also a member of the West Pasco Chamber of Commerce, the Pasco Aging Network, the Society of Senior Advisors, and the Community Service Council. As a member of the Community Service Council, she served as Secretary for one year and Outreach Chairperson for two. “I joined several groups when I got started,” Humphrey said, “but I have stuck with the Community Service Council of West Pasco because of what they do and what they stand for. They help everybody from kids to seniors, veterans, animals, you name it. And it’s a fun group!” One of the special projects of the Community Service Council took place in September 2010, when they partnered with Life Care Center to arrange “Senior Portraits” for residents of Atria Bayonet Point, Sunshine Christian Home, Jennifer Gardens, Trinity Regional Rehab Center, and Life Care Center. “Over and over we found that many older people don’t have recent pictures of themselves,” she said. “The most recent is usually from their 40s and 50s.” The Council arranged Photos by J David of Tarpon Springs to shoot professional portraits of the individual seniors or the seniors with their families, free of charge. Life Care Center set up two rooms: one for the portraits, and one for a tea party, since everyone was dressed up for the photographs! As her client list grows, so do the levels of satisfaction & gratification Debbie feels in her big heart. She is very happy with her change of careers and for the opportunity to help! If you know someone that could benefit from the services of Home Helpers, please call 727-942-2539.

Galatea’s Levitation Queen Beads are imbued with a power all their own. Never before have beads been so elegantly and precisely spaced, creating a beautifully modern look with a minimum number of beads. How’s it done? Galatea’s patented Mono-Pole north-to-north facing magnets provide a naturally occurring space between each bead. All magnets have a north and south end, which attract one another. Galatea’s Mono-Pole magnet bead cores are engineered so only the north ends come into contact with one another, providing a natural space as the ends pull away from each other. Available in hand carved pearls, silver and glass. Levitation Queen Beads will always look and perform perfectly on a necklace, bracelet or a pair of earrings.

e gather together this time of year with our family and friends to ask the Lord’s blessing. Thanksgiving Day is the holiday that focuses on what is truly important in life. No mad dash to buy gifts at the eleventh hour; no gift wrapping, just a day off in the middle of the week to share time and a special meal with the people we love. I have decided that if I had to write about everything that I am thankful for, I would not be able to fit it on this page nor into the entire magazine. In short, I am thankful for the small but most important things in my life, my sons, daughter and granddaughter, my family and all of my true friends that have shared the good and bad times throughout the years. When I count my blessings, I am so thankful for the opportunity to share our local businesses and their families with you. Remember the crisp gold and glowy red-orange leaves of Autumn, our signal that the holidays are upon us. Support our local community and the businesses that make it so wonderful. Most of all, be thankful for the country in which we live and for our service men and women that protect us so that we can again celebrate another holiday filled with freedom, justice and liberty & love. Happy Thanksgiving!

Transforming Your Home into Your Most Important Asset


our home is your castle and one of the most important assets in your life. “Enjoy it! We can help!” That’s the feeling of Larry & Claudia Deremus, owners of Trinity Kitchen & Bath. “Most places do either cabinets or countertops. We do both in one location,” Claudia explains. Larry overseas each and every job to ensure customer satisfaction and keep costs down. No sub-contractors are hired to do installations, because that is expensive. The professionals at Trinity Kitchen & Bath can transform practically any area of your home into more enjoyable spaces: Laundry Rooms, Media Centers, Closets, Home Offices, and of course, Kitchens & Baths!

Larry has spent more than 20 years in Manufacturing & Design, and 25 years in Senior Project Management. He has built homes from the ground up, and remodeled countless homes, both old & new. Larry & Claudia established Trinity Kitchen & Bath in 2007, and have managed their business from the same location

since 2008. Medallion is their primary line of cabinetry and has maintained a quality reputation in the marketplace for 90 years.

5 Things to Know About Homeowner’s Insurance 1. Know about exclusions to coverage. For example, most insurance policies do not cover flood or earthquake damage as a standard item. These types of coverage must be bought separately. 2. Know about dollar limitations on claims. Even if you are covered for a risk, there may be a limit on how much the insurer will pay. For example, many policies limit the amount paid for stolen jewelry unless items are insured separately. 3. Know the replacement cost. If your home is destroyed you’ll receive money to replace it only to the maximum of your coverage, so be sure your insurance is sufficient. This means that if your home is insured for $150,000 and it costs $180,000 to replace it, you’ll only receive $150,000. 4. Know the actual cash value. If you chose not to replace your home when it’s destroyed, you’ll receive replacement cost, less depreciation. This is called actual cash value. 5. Know the liability. Generally your homeowner’s insurance covers you for accidents that happen to other people on your property, including medical care, court costs, and awards by the court. However, there is usually an upper limit to the amount of coverage provided. Be sure that it’s sufficient if you have significant assets.

Decorating with Color is as Easy as 60-30-10. When decorating a room in your home, divide the colors into percentages:

60% of a dominant color for overall theme 30% of a secondary color for visual interest 10% of an accent color for a spark of sparkle! For example, 60 percent of a bathroom or kitchen, typically the walls, should be one color of a color scheme. The color of the cabinetry and/or furniture accounts for the 30 percent figure. Accents and accessories such as plants, artwork and linens/ pillows make up the remaining 10 percent.

Grout Rhino Has a Solution for Your Dirty Grout


s you prepare to enter your home, you wipe your feet on the welcome mat strategically placed at the front door. Your dog greets you with a wagging tail, equivalent to a big smile. Your cat caresses your leg with its entire body. The children come running in from playing in the yard to see what’s for dinner. Something rarely contemplated is the wear and tear, allergens, dirt and grime that contaminate the grout and tile throughout your home. Guiseppe Binasco, owner of Grout Rhino, has a solution! “I offer restorative services like re-grouting of showers, fixing or replacing damaged grout and tiles, as well as tile and grout cleaning, color sealing, repair and installations,” he explains. Tile and grout floors easily pick up soil from shoes, paws and airborne particles. Tile and grout in showers and around bathtubs absorb moisture and harbor mold and mildew spores that can destroy the aesthetic appearance and alter an otherwise healthy environment over time. The professionals at Grout Rhino are experts when it comes to restoring and maintaining your tile and grout.

We are FALL’ing for the hot trends this season!

I UltrueImage “Making You look your Hottest from your Face to your Closet!”

know we are all excited for that crisp air and touch of cool weather! It tends to give us the itch to clean up our boots and break out those cute jackets and coats! Here are a few tips and trends to know for this fall! Thank you to for the photos that show off these chic trends! Use a simple shine sponge to shine up your boots.

Joanne L. Cicora

Check the heals tips and replace the ones that may have broken off or worn through.

Shop with me on line for the latest in Skin Care & Body Care with the Hottest Color Cosmetics!

Remember that pointy toe boots make your legs look longer. Pair them with a sleek Capri pant and you’ll have a super sharp look!

(727) 514-1431

You won’t want to where to heavy of a boot unless you are really heading to the snow. That just brings the eye down and makes you look shorter and stockier. Belted sweaters are in but they must be fitted and not bulky. In addition make sure they don’t hang too long and if you are a “pair shape” figure they should stop at the top of your back paint pockets. Scarfs are fun, but be sure not to cover up your whole neck area because this will make you look wider and shorter. Loop them longer and use thinner scarfs. Now if you were blessed to have a bust and are a bit broader on top then go for a wider scarf. This will be more proportionate to your figure and actually make you look a bit smaller. Pair a totally on trend leopard print scarf with a neat a-lined dress for a clean and classy look! Winter Purses! OH how we love them! Rich leathers, plaid wools, deep plums, all with lots of texture and the list goes on! Keep purses somewhat relevant to your size. If you are “fluffier”, then a large purse is for you.

Feel Serene and Peaceful with lavender bath bombs!

Bedtime Benefits – Smelling lavender steadies breathing, regulates temperature and lowers blood pressure – all of which help you sleep. Beauty Benefits – These bath bombs are loaded with skin softening oils, so your body feels velvety soft the moment you step out of the tub! Ingredients: ½ cup light oil - sunflower, canola or almond 3-6 drops - lavender essential oil (such as Aura Cacia Lavender Essential Oil, 1 cup of baking soda 1 cup of citric acid – (find it in health food stores) ¾ cup of cornstarch 4 drops blue food coloring (optional) 1 muffin tin or ice cube tray

Nonstop stress can boost your gum disease risk 30%, studies show. The culprit is known as cortisol. Constant exposure to this stress hormone weakens your immune system’s ability to heal damaged gum tissues. The next time you feel frazzled, pause for 30 seconds to take six deep, calming breaths.

Mix the oils and set aside. Combine all of the dry ingredients, and then stir in oil mixture until it forms a crumbly dough. Knead in the food coloring, if you choose. Pack the mixture into the molds and let set overnight. Unmold the next day and let air-dry. Use anytime by dropping one bomb into a bathtub of warm water. Stays fresh indefinitely, if stored in a dry place. Hint: Makes great holiday gifts. Wrap them in pretty bags with beautiful bow ties!

Did you know: Cortisol is a hormone produced by the adrenal glands and helps regulate blood pressure and cardiovascular function, as well as the body’s use of proteins, carbohydrates and fats. Cortisol secretion increases in response to physical and psychological stress during the fight or flight response, which is why it’s sometimes called ‘the stress hormone’.

THE “BOOMERZ BEAT” By Barbara Marville-Kelly


he “BOOMERZ BEAT ” goes on with an everlasting “buzz” that doesn’t quit. With more passion, drive and appreciation for life than ever before, Boomers are giving thanks and showing gratitude for every added year to our “life experience!” Remember, it is not about the destination, but about the journey and how to “master it". If you are one of the 78 million Baby Boomers born between 1946 and 1964, you remember the good ol' days, when “Rock N Roll” was IT! Every weekend consisted of dancing, dancing & more dancing, bell bottom pants, mini skirts, big hair, afros, and tight jeans. We remember when we drank from the garden hose, never gave a second thought about white flour, white sugar, soda pop, aluminum cans, or even air conditioning. We lived with unlocked doors and untethered dogs in the neighborhood. We spent hours being creative and innovative, using our God-given treasures and talents building go carts, creating artwork, turning our old jeans into skirts, and filling our time with “good stuff!” Computers? Are you kidding me? We actually TALKED to our family and friends. Texting? What the heck? If YOU are part of this generation, raise your hand and pat yourself on the back! We survived!!!! We Did It!! The last 50 years may have been a rollercoaster ride for some of us, with successes, failures, triumphs, and accountability. We learned how to rise above it all, onward and upward, never giving up! It is that “Boomer Buzz” that just keeps us keeping on! So, as a fellow surviving “Boomer”, where are you today? If you have been there and done that, is history repeating itself yet one more time? Starting over in business? 22

Retirement is absolutely NOT an option? Maybe you are picking up where you left off from the good ol' days: dancing, hotrodding, surfing, taking up a hobby that's been sitting on the shelf, traveling, or diving into yet another new career or relationship? If you are like us, you have been doing some care-giving, taking a serious look at your own health, trying to figure out how you can catch up with yourself. Perhaps, reversing some of the aging factors that have snuck up on you is an option worth exploring, so you can get out there and “boogie” in life, doing what you love and loving what you do! IT IS ABSOLUTELY POSSIBLE!!

BARBARA MARVILLE-KELLY Television Host Mind/Body/Spirit Coach Author:”Chasing Rainbows of the Heart”

Here are some tips to DEFY AGING and make life GOLDEN by simply mastering a few things: Learn how to handle stress, the number one cause of disease, and premature death. Live your life making decisions from your heart. It is never too late to start nurturing your spirit. Learn all you can about anything that excites you. Consider alternative healing to traditional methods. Dance, sing, sing, dance, and more of the same! Spend quality time with loved ones. Grow a beautiful garden. Adopt a pet. Do random acts of kindness. Spread cheer, love, and forgiveness, always. Write a book, an autobiography, or create a screen play. Use YOUR treasures,

talents, blessings, and the beautiful greatness you were born with!!! Develop your “passion!” No matter what, when, where, how or why. JUST DO IT!!! Last, but certainly not least, never, ever give up on anything, anyone, or most importantly, YOU!!!!

The Vampire is at RINNOVA By Dr. Gerard Cappiello


would like to share with you a fantastic new way to rejuvenate the face. It has been refered to as the VAMPIRE Lift. However, I like to call it the Rinnova Lift. What better way to get a more youthful face than to transfer your own fat cells? For many years,Rinnova has used patients’ own fat cells to augment their breasts, buttocks, hands and faces. In fact, I have been doing fat augmentation to the breasts using stem cells for over five years with great success. Stem cells have amazing regenerative powers that can harness the body’s own healing mechanisms to repair and regenerate damaged or diseased tissue. The process involves extracting and purifying a large volume of stem cells from your own blood. The cells are then processed and put back into your body. Over the years at Rinnova Med-Surgical and Laser Institute, we have developed and perfected this procedure where our patients use their own stem cells that are, in turn, activated and put back into the body. Fat is harvested from your body and cleansed with normal physiological solution and then added to your stem cells that were harvested from your blood in the form of Platelet Rich Plasma. These fat cells now have an increased chance of survival. The fat, besides being used in breast augmentation, is also used to remove wrinkles in the face. The Platelet Rich Plasma derived from your blood, can also be processed into a gel that can be injected as your own biological implant for Dr. Gerard Cappiello the treatment of wrinkles, folds, skin retractions scars and lip augmenation. It is a magnificent, safe and completely personalized alternative to synthetic fillers. Stem AT THE FEMALE CARE CENTER cell filler is biocompatible with you, Dr. Cappiello is Board Certified because it is you! Each harvest in Obstetrics and Gynecology can yield over 10cc’s of platlet rich and is a fellow of the American plasma gel, whereas most synthetic College of Surgeons, and gels come in a 1cc syringe. Our holds numerous memberships process makes it very affordable! in professional organizations in I have used stem cells for over 10 years and have used this product in hundreds of pelvic reconstruction procedures and breast and facial procedures. Please call our office at 727.942.7000 to learn more, or to schedule a ccomplimentary consultation with Dr. Gerard Cappiello.

the United States and Europe. He is also a “preceptor”, trusted to train other physicians in the art of using lasers in aesthetic medicine. Dr. Cappiello is affiliated with Morton Plant Mease Hospital in Countryside and Dunedin as well as Helen Ellis Memorial Hospital.

Car Seat Safety

bout a month ago I attended a very informative and interactive class through SAFE Kids that is designated to show you how to use and properly install your child’s car seat in your vehicle. You’re probably thinking a car seat class? Well, believe it or not each year thousands of children are killed or injured in a car crash due to improper use of a car seat. One of the most important jobs “we” have as a parent is keeping our children safe when riding in a vehicle. But with so many different car safety seats on the market, it’s no wonder many parents find this overwhelming. I learned that the type of seat your child needs depends on several things, including your child’s size and the type of vehicle you have. You should always Select a car seat based on your child’s age, height, and weight; keep your child in the car seat for as long as possible, as long as your child fits the seat’s height and weight requirements and ALL children under 13 should ride in the back seat. I was shocked when I was told that…..13? My daughter just turned 13 a few months ago and she has been riding with me in the front seat for at least two years now. A nationally certified child passenger safety technician teaches all classes and will also assist you as you install your car seat in your vehicle. Classes are offered during the month at various times. If you are unable to purchase a car seat for your child at retail prices, convertible seats (for children birth to 4 years) are $20 and booster seats (for children 4 years to approximately 8 to 10 years old) are $10. To make an appointment please go to: carseats (dates change monthly so please visit this website often) This class is for parents or guardians, however, the information is for everyone responsible for transporting your child, so please invite them to attend the class with you. You will be glad you did!

When shopping for a car safety seat, keep the following tips in mind:

1 2 3 4

No one seat is the “best” or “safest.” The best seat is the one that fits your child’s size, is correctly installed, fits well in your vehicle, and is used properly every time you drive. Don’t decide by price alone. A higher price does not mean the seat is safer or easier to use. Avoid used seats if you don’t know the seat’s history. Never use a car safety seat that is too old. Look on the label for the date it was made. Check with the manufacturer to find out how long it recommends using the seat. Do not use seats that have been in a moderate or severe crash. Seats that were in a minor crash may still be safe to use, but some car safety seat manufacturers recommend replacing the seat after any crash, even a minor one. For more safety tips please visit the NHTSA web site.

When Your Pets Deserve the Very Best!

What Are Heartworms? By Dr. Scott Lamb

Heartworms are worm-like parasites that grow to be about 14 inches long and live in the right side of a dog's heart. The larvae of the parasite are transmitted to dogs through mosquitoes. The growth of the heartworms can block the flow of blood to your pet's heart and eventually cause death. How can I test my dog for heartworms? We have an in- house test that requires only a few drops of blood from your pet. At what age should I start heartworm prevention? You should begin heartworm prevention as soon as get your puppy. If you have an adult dog you need to have a heartworm test done before heartworm prevention can be started. Trinity Pet Hospital is a full-service Veterinary Clinic and Animal Hospital/ER.

DECISION by Dr. Gayle Burrell


aving been a veterinarian here in Florida for many years, I know how difficult it can be to take your pet to the clinic even for routine visits. They are often scared, shaking and sometimes painful, and this can start before you have even left the house. Cats especially don’t usually appreciate leaving their comfort zone. The decision to euthanize your pet is a very emotional one, and yet it is the most loving decision you can make for them when the time comes. Unfortunately the drive to the clinic, waiting in the lobby, facing other clients when you leave, and the drive home alone can make an already traumatic experience even worse. After the peaceful experience of euthanizing a friends pet at their home and more recently one of my own, I realized that this was a service I could offer your beloved pet that would eliminate a lot of undue stress and help make their last moments quiet, peaceful and pain free. My hours are flexible to accommodate the needs of both you and your pet and cremation services are provided than can include the return of ashes in a nice urn of your choice.

What is a Mutual Fund? A

“mutual fund” is a company that pools money from many investors and invests the combined holdings in a single portfolio of securities that is professionally managed. To manage risk, the fund’s manager attempts to diversify the fund’s investments according to the fund’s investment objective. Funds generally invest in a variety of investments, including U.S. or international stocks, bonds, money market instruments or any combination of these. Individual investors own shares of the fund, whereas the fund or the investment company owns the underlying investments chosen by the manager.

they function similarly to U.S. mutual funds in terms of structure, investments, operations, risks and costs. As the number of mutual funds has grown, some mutual funds have become increasingly complex and specialized and may employ complicated investment strategies, such as leverage and short selling, to manage their portfolios. In addition, these complex funds more commonly invest in alternative investments such as commodities, foreign currencies and derivatives.

Since the first U.S. mutual fund appeared in 1924, investors have entrusted their savings for homes, education, retirement and other major financial goals to mutual funds. As of 2010, over 7,600 mutual funds hold about $11 trillion in assets for approximately half of all American households.* Working with some of the most prominent mutual fund families, our firm offers over 350 different mutual fund families to investors.

The level and type of risk associated with mutual funds may therefore vary significantly from one fund to another. As a result, it is important to have a complete understanding of the investment strategies and underlying products from which a mutual fund derives its value to evaluate the risks. These risks are outlined in full in the mutual fund’s prospectus, which we urge you to read. Complex funds in particular are subject to a number of risks, including increased volatility and greater potential for loss, and are not suitable for all investors.

Certain mutual funds are domiciled and operated outside of the United States and are only available to people or entities that do not qualify as “U.S. persons” under the U.S. Internal Revenue Code.These funds are called “offshore” mutual funds and, although they are not registered as securities in the United States,

Before investing in any mutual fund, you should read its prospectus and discuss your investment goals and objectives with your financial professional.

This can quickly and easily increase your bottomline. Everyone knows the power of a great referral. Someone who is referred to you by a friend, family member, or other business professional is more inclined to become your client thanks to the level of trust established between them.

According to Jim, the mantra of Rooters Club is “Pay it Forward.” Everyone is welcome to join Rooters Club at any of their lunches or mixers.

Why Your Needs SEO for Visibility on the Internet!


very day more people search the Internet for the products and services they are interested in purchasing. In order for your company to capture a share of that business, your company must be visible in the search engine results of the three major search engines, Google, Yahoo and Bing (Microsoft). Since Google captures about 70% of the search engine use and more than 85% of searchers never look past page one of the search results, it is important for your company to show up on the first page of Google to receive the maximum amount of traffic to your business’s website. In order for your company to rank on the first page of the search engine results you need to have search engine optimization (SEO) work done for your business website. Choosing the optimum keyword phrases to use when performing the SEO work is critically important. Additionally, selecting the right web locations to submit

your website to also needs to be considered carefully. It is important to submit your website to high ranking websites rather than just using a high volume approach. This is a matter of quality rather than quantity when choosing the right places to support your company’s SEO efforts. Websitedzyn will perform a detailed keyword analysis of your business’s website to determine the optimum keyword phrases to use for your SEO work. We only submit your company’s website to high ranking website sources and only use acceptable SEO industry practices when working on your SEO project to avoid being unlisted by Google. We use a manual submittal process rather than automated software to avoid downgrading or blacklisting by Google. Let Websitedzyn perform a detailed study of your current web visibility and recommend a course of action to get your company’s website on the first page of Google.

Medical Center



opening winter 2011


t is a tremendous opportunity to build a new hospital from the ground up and to develop two health campuses offering emergency services. The new Medical Center of Trinity, scheduled to open later this year, will undoubtedly be among the best in the region, supporting the growing healthcare needs of our community. We understand that there are many questions regarding the new facility and hope the following will help.

Where is Medical Center of Trinity located? The campus is located at the corner of State Road 54 and Little Road, approximately 7 miles from the Suncoast Parkway. A dedicated traffic light on State Road 54 along with extended turning lanes will provide direct access to the medical campus and to four main points of entry: Main Entrance, Emergency, Patient Registration and the Medical Arts Building. Directional signage will be placed at key locations around the property to direct visitors and guests to their destination.

• Medical Center of Trinity affiliated physicians • Medical specialty, skills and experience • Physicians who are accepting new patients • Office hours and locations

What services will you offer? Medical Center of Trinity will offer services in Emergency Care including a dedicated area in the ER for Pediatrics, Heart and Vascular, Spine and Orthopedics, Women’s Health and Obstetrics, Surgical Specialties, Men’s Health, Diagnostic Imaging, Behavioral Health and Cancer Care.

Our nurses and referral specialists can help you find a doctor and make an appointment, answer healthcare questions and register for classes and events. You can contact our nurses 24 hours a day at 727-834-5630.

Do you take my insurance? Are the rooms really all private? Yes, 100% of the patient rooms at Medical Center of Trinity are private and are focused on patient care. Some of the highlights of our patient rooms include: • Plentiful space for visiting family • Visiting hours at the discretion of the patient • 32” high definition television, 90 channels, integrated patient education system This is the largest line-up of high-definition television channels in any U.S. hospital, providing a wide array of information, education and entertainment programming to patients and families around-the clock. • Room Service • Free Internet Access • Patient beds have weight scales which allows for accuracy of a patients weight for safe administration of medication and prompt recognition of health issues • Computer Proximity Cabinet at the bedside – allows clinical staff the ability to remain with the patient and document while working with the patient. • Vitals Now Technology – allows direct transmission of patient’s vital signs (blood pressure, pulse and respirations) immediately into the patient’s electronic medical record. • Continuous EKG/Cardiac Monitoring even when a patient leaves the floor for a test or procedure • Dedicated patient hallways and elevators for optimal privacy

How do I find a physician associated with Medical Center of Trinity? Our physicians are experienced in a broad spectrum of specialties and have offices throughout the community. To make finding a doctor easier, our free, Consult-a-Nurse service is designed to provide you with physician referrals and health information including: 44

Medical Center of Trinity is contracted with many of the Managed Care Organizations and is also a Medicare/Medicaid provider.

How do you move a hospital? You can rest assured the transfer will be executed with great detail and oversight to ensure patient comfort and safety remain uncompromised. We have a transition committee in place tasked with the coordination of key activities that will support our move. These include planning for the safe move of patients as well as installation of all equipment and planning for daily operations once we relocate. What will happen to Community Hospital? Community Hospital will be renamed Medical Center of Trinity West Pasco Campus and will continue to provide Emergency Care. Behavioral Health and Outpatient Rehabilitation Services will remain at the West Pasco Campus (Marine Parkway).

Can I take a tour? Join us Saturday, November 19th, 12:00-4:00 for our open house for our community. Radio Disney, Bounce Houses, BBQ, Bayflite, Ambulances and the opportunity to walk through your new hospital. If you have any additional questions, please call 727-834-4000 or visit and click on the contact us form.


eet Barry Horvath, President of WPBA and Financial Advisor for Advisors Mortgage Group. West Pasco Business Association is a pool of professionals who work together diligently to promote each others’ businesses, WPBA exists to help business owners, independent consultants, and company entrepreneurs succeed by generating more leads through referrals and team-building. Membership is restricted to one member for each business category; that way no member will be in competition with another member. Unlike most networking organizations, there are no “fees” for membership.

Q. As President of WPBA, what do you feel is the most important aspect of this group of business people? A. The loyalty and integrity of our members. Everyone here is all about helping each other grow their business. This group tends to attract business people with the highest class and other members first attitude first.

Q. What was your ultimate objective in creating this group? A. I saw many people hurting in today’s economy and not have the resources available to belong to other networking groups that typically cost around $1,000 a year between meal dues and membership fees. We do not charge any fees. We do Chinese raffle once a month and each member can bring a gift. It is a fun time and helps support our expenses such as name tags, socials and administrative costs. I knew that so many people could not afford to do network marketing right now but needed the benefits of a group like ours. I did have a vision that it would continue to grow but never realized how great it would be. I remember sitting around on Tuesday night with just a few of us in the group wondering if anyone would show up. Now I wonder if we are going to fit everyone in the room.

Q. What makes this group of business professionals different from the rest? A. They all seem to really enjoy coming to our weekly meetings and enjoy our relaxed laid back atmosphere. Everyone takes getting leads seriously and we all work harder to please those referrals.

Q. How would you describe the members of WPBA? A. Dedicated, fun and totally laid back. There is never dull moment. I can be having the worst day working my own company and leave with a smile know that I am surrounded and supported by so many other good business people.

Meetings are held every Tuesday, 5:30-6:30 pm at 2150 Seven Springs Blvd. Trinity, FL 34655
