CRCHS welcomes new CEO, plans future services

Seth Whitmer is the Chief Executive Officer at Columbia River Health Services in Boardman Columbia River Community Health Services welcomed their new Chief Executive Officer, H. Seth Whitmer on June 12th, and it has been a busy time since then! Seth and his family moved here from Whiteman Air Force Base in Missouri, where Seth had been working in the Health Care field for the US Air Force. His background is a bachelor’s degree in Health Care Administration from Weaver State College in Utah. He worked in managing long term care facilities, and worked for three hospitals in the Forks, Port Townsend, Port Angeles areas while he studied for his Master’s Degree in Health Administration at University of Washington. Seth worked for Yakima Farm Workers Clinics in the Walla Walla area, and public hospital administration before joining the Air Force. Seth is joined by his wife, Megan and their five children: Ezra, age 14 who is an 8th grader at Riv-

erside Jr/Sr High School, Levi, “almost 12!” who is in the 6th grade at Windy River, Svea, age 9 who attends Sam Boardman Elementary in the 3rd grade, Tristan, age 4 and baby Avril, one year old. Wife Megan is a Respiratory Therapist and is working two days each week at Trios Hospital in Tricities. She is a dual citizen of Canada and United States, having been raised in Alberta Canada. “The board of directors held a Strategic Planning Retreat recently, which helped us focus on our plans for the future of the clinic,” says Seth. Some of their goals include bringing an optometrist to Boardman on a regular basis to serve kids with a disorder called Amblyopia, which is similar to “lazy eye”. He explained that there are over 100 children already diagnosed in our area with this malady, which is a failure of the brain to develop both eyes together. He added that if this is not treated with

glasses by the age of 8, it can become permanent. An optometrist from Hood River, Dr. Chown will be volunteering her services to the clinic one day every other month to specifically treat these patients. The clinic would like to find longterm services and add a $5,000 camera which would help diagnose these children. Seth added the Clinic is working in coordination with Good Shepherd Medical so the Clinic can take over the pharmacy located at the grocery store in Boardman. Good Shepherd has agreed to keep the pharmacy open until October 31st, when the Clinic plans to have their pharmacists on staff and all licenses needed. “To be a medical home for our patients,” says Seth, “It is vital to make sure we are taking care of our patients’ needs.” Columbia River Community Health Services was one of very few community health centers that did not have a pharmacy. The pharmacy will be open Monday through Saturday with convenient hours for their patients. “Our patients will receive discounted drug prices,” Seth added.” Also planned for the clinic is an addition of two medical doctors; one has been hired, and they are still recruiting for another. Nutritional services are important to patients, especially those with diabetes. The clinic looks to add a dietician (at no charge to the patients) for this assistance. The clinic provides emergency dental services and teeth cleaning for their patients who need financial assistance, and would like to add other dental services. The clinic provides discounted services to people who have no insurance, or high deductibles on their insurance. Meanwhile, Seth and his family are excited for the new house they are having built in Boardman to be completed so they can settle in!

Adolfo Bedolla was the lucky winner of a Chrome Book Tablet at Columbia River Health Service’s Annual Community BBQ.

Morrow County free of Zika Virus Zika virus caused widespread concern when it first spread to the United States, so North Morrow Vector Control District (NMVCD) has taken a proactive approach to establish with certainty if mosquitoes in our district are capable of transmitting Zika. This summer, NMVCD expanded its adult surveillance program by implementing the Zika Mosquito-Borne Disease Surveillance Program Internship. NMVCD was able to achieve this through a grant given by the Special Districts Association of Oregon. NMVCD Surveillance Supervisor, Anita Baumgart, has been working closely with intern, Adriana Sanchez. They have been setting “BG Sentinel 2” traps throughout the district to collect the mosquitoes more likely to pose a threat. “It’s been such a cool experience learning about mosquitoes and mosquito-borne diseases. I know more about mosquitoes than I ever thought possible” said Sanchez about her internship experience. Through this internship program, Sanchez has learned how to collect mosquito eggs and larvae,

North Morrow Vector Control Intern, Adriana Sanchez, sets a “BG Sentinel 2” trap. set traps to collect mosquitoes, and identify a variety of mosquito species. The mosquito species of concern currently present in Morrow County are Aedes vexans, Culex tarsalis, Culex pipiens, Culiseta inornata, and Anopheles freeborni. Much to our relief, re-

search has shown that none of these species can transmit Zika to date. NMVCD is committed to the safety of our community and will continue to work diligently to detect and prevent mosquito-borne diseases.

ocal Student Interns at Port of Morrow Warehousing. Hans Rockwell current junior and wrestler at Oregon State University spent the summer as an intern for Port of Morrow Warehousing. Hans assisted Safety Manager Bobby Barnes with developing and updating several safety programs for Port of Morrow Warehousing. They updated the Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) Program and Hazard Communication Program at the warehouse by analyzing current practices and updating to current OSHA standards. They also developed a Brittle Plastics and Glass Program for the new dry warehouse that the Port will be operating at 71410 East Columbia Ave. In addition to helping improve safety at the warehouse, Hans also spent considerable time repairing broken side racks that the warehouse uses in operation, which has allowed Hans to stay in shape and hit the ground running when returning to Oregon State Uni-

versity in September. This internship was made possible because of an Internship Grant from Special Districts Association of Oregon. he Morrow County Historical Society meetings will be held October 01, 2017 at 2:00 P.M. until 4:00 P.M.

Farewell to 2017 “Music In The Parks” Another season of free community entertainment has come and gone. All that remains are pleasant memories of outdoor music, golden Columbia River Sunsets, happy individuals and families gathering on Monday evenings in Boardman and Irrigon Marina Parks. It all happens so gently and smoothly, one might forget that there are many volunteers and supporters working behind the scenes for these community pleasures. Let’s take a moment and recognize their contributions. First of all, funding provided by Morrow County Unified Recre-

ation District and Portland General Electric is much appreciated. They have supported “Music In The Parks” for more than 15 years. Volunteers from Boardman & Irrigon work nearly year round identifying, auditioning and negotiating with performers to complete the ten week concert season. Volunteers include: Tami Shear; Donna and Don Eppenbach; Jackie McCauley; Karen Pettigrew; Michelle Seeley; & Shirley David. It is great to have volunteer greeters provided by community organizations. Boardman & Irrigon Recreation

Districts always have the park facilities ready for our use. Judy Scott and her Chuck Wagon provides us with picnic fare at reasonable prices... Our city governments and Chambers of Commerce promote the performances in many ways. Thanks to KOHU and IrrigonBoardman Facebook page for publicizing our schedule. Special thanks to the SAGE Center for providing a cool auditorium refuge for a couple of HOT-HOT evenings. Thanks to all who attended, and generously applauded performers. We hope to see you again at 2018 “Music In The Parks.”
