As you know, many organizations do not reach seven years before they close or merge. So the Christian principles and good business sense laid down by our founder Gouverneur Hance in 1900 have withstood the tests of time and man.
A Message from William V. Day
So what could I share with you today regarding our past that benefits the future? Well only three of us have been CEOs of St Barnabas in the last 120 years. I never met Brother Hance, but I did work with his successor Paul Hopkinson for many years.
So my first observation is that Hance and the men and women who followed him are the first reason for the tenure of St. Barnabas. This organization has been blessed with outstanding employees and volunteers.
My second observation is the various Boards of Trustees ALWAYS stayed true to the mission – help the poor. We started with that goal in 1900 and we continue it today. I believe Hance would be amazed at our spending $7 million a year on free care.
My third observation is that we have remained viable because we have expanded our range of services and lessened financial risks associated with reimbursement programs such as Medicare and Medicaid.
From our humble beginnings in downtown Pittsburgh to the Free Home in Gibsonia with 65 beds, we have grown to a multifaceted Health System operating on more than six campuses in three counties – Allegheny, Beaver and Butler – with 800 plus employees. Offering independent life styles, living assistance, skilled care, rehabilitative and outpatient medical services, memory care, home and hospice care. And fourth, we have turned to donors for contributions. And they have responded wonderfully. Without donors, St. Barnabas would not exist.
But in today’s world, with so many worthwhile charities competing for the same dollars, we have had to be creative in raising funds. An automotive service and repair station – Rudolph Auto Repair – two thriving golf courses – Conley Resort and Golf Club and Suncrest Golf and Grille – and two high-end thrift stores benefit the St. Barnabas Free Care Fund. And now we welcome the Tusca Plaza Shop ‘n Save supermarket in Brighton Township! With God’s help we will continue to serve and grow, create new jobs and be good Christian neighbors for another 120 years. God bless, WVD President@StBarnabasHealthSystem.com

oon vi M e a th Co g m n i pu r o l
The Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter simulated what Neil Armstrong saw in the final minutes as he guided the Lunar Module to the surface of the Moon.
he sky is no limit to Dr. Bruce Hapke, who daily travels to the moon from his apartment in The Village at St. Barnabas. This award-winning planetary scientist is tracking the unmanned satellite, the Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter, launched by NASA in 2009. He is part of the camera team assigned to analyze the images the orbiter is sending via computer. And his own mathematical theory – the Hapke Equation – is being used to understand the images. The equation is used to analyze the light being reflected from the surface of the moon – enabling scientists to determine if the surface is hard rock, sand or fine powder. Every scientist throughout the world who analyzes sunlight uses Dr. Hapke’s equation. When Dr. Hapke and his wife Joyce moved into The Village in 2015, one of the requirements was an extra room for his study so he could continue his work with NASA. And he has, carrying on even after Joyce’s death in 2017. Fortunately Dr. Hapke has family nearby. His son Kevin lives in Hampton Township and Geoffrey lives in New Martinsburg, PA. His daughter Cheryl, the only one who followed in his footsteps, is a geologist in St. Petersburg, FL.
Dr. Hapke has been fascinated by planets all his life. He did his undergraduate work in physics and astronomy at the University of Wisconsin and his masters and graduate studies at Cornell University. It was at Cornell that he worked under the famous astronomer Thomas Gold. In 1967 he was recruited by the University of Pittsburgh to be Professor of Geology and Planetary Science. He continued to teach at Pitt until he retired in 2001. That was the year he was awarded the coveted Kuiper Prize, given by the American Astronomical Society to the scientist who has made significant contributions to planetary science. His book the Theory of Reflectance and Emittance Spectroscopy, is in its second edition.
His honors include having an asteroid named after him: 3549 Hapke – each asteroid has a number given in the order of its discovery. And a mineral, commonly found in lunar rock, is named Hapkeite. And of course his equation bears his name. At The Village he often lectures on the planets, plays bridge, enjoys the various restaurants and participates in The Wine Society. But always, a certain portion of his day is spent pursuing his life-long love – studying the planets. “The images the lunar orbiter sends to us enable us to learn about the surface of the moon without ever touching it – referred to as remote sensing,” he explains. Always the scientist, Dr. Hapke stresses, “But we still need ground truth to prove our remote sensing.” The exploration continues.

to Their World Campaign
or more than a century St. Barnabas Nursing Home has been noted for its beautiful arched windows, connecting thousands of patients to the world outside. These original windows must be replaced. And we need the help of caring friends and family to do this. A gift of $2,000 will install a new arched window for a patient to enjoy, to mark the beginning of Spring and the arrival of the robins, and, perhaps, a glimpse of a flock of turkeys or a doe with her fawn. You can make this happen with a gift in honor or in memory of a loved one or of a patient who has outlived loved ones. A one-time gift or a payment pledge will provide that window. Please join us in opening up the world to our patients. Visit www.StBarnabasHealthSystem.com and click on â€˜Donate Nowâ€™ or send a check to St. Barnabas Charities Inc. 5850 Meridian Rd., Gibsonia, PA 15044 or call 724-625-3770 to make your pledge. Pledges may be payable over 18 months. All donations are tax deductible and they will be matched!

veryone has a story to tell, and as you well know, I am the biggest story-teller of all time. Aesop or O. Henry may be a close second.
Jim Roddey, Special Assistant to the President St. Barnabas Health System
But the stories being told on The Best of Beaver County WBVP Radio every Thursday at 11 a.m. are not mine. Nor on the brandnew The Best of Allegheny County show on WJAS Radio, Pittsburgh on Saturday at 9 a.m. and Sunday at noon. I am just the host of these St. Barnabas-sponsored programs. Men and women who have hidden their special talents under the “proverbial” bushel are highlighted as well as many popular and well known figures. The fun for me and, I hope, for you is that I get to “expose” them – in the nicest way. Take Rocky Bleier. Who doesn’t know this Steeler Super Bowl Champion? But do you know that he was the last player taken in the seventh round of the NFL draft… that he was known as one of the slowest backs in the league…that he visits veterans in local nursing homes every Christmas? And then there was my interview with U.S. Space Commander
Story Time Dave Thompson, a three-star Air Force General, who arrived in full uniform with a staff of five. Everyone had to stand sideways in the tiny broadcast booth. I think I stood at attention for the entire show. The interview that really surprised me was with Jennifer Brinker, Marketing Vice President for Bruster’s Real Ice Cream. What I thought was a small, local ice cream business, headquartered in tiny Bridgewater Borough, is actually a worldwide enterprise with 200 stores as far away as North Korea and Guyana. Ice cream in Guyana? Tune into WBVP and WJAS. Like that box of chocolates in Forrest Gump, you never know what you may get…or learn.

e c Gotta Dan S
tars were born on the Kean Theatre stage as eight men and women danced their hearts out in the Joy through Dance program hosted by St. Barnabas Memory Care Services along with Pittsburgh Ballroom and the Alzheimerâ€™s Association. Enjoying their favorite tunes, each was paired with a dancer trained in the basics of dementia. For 14 weeks they rehearsed for their full dress performance on March 2 before family and friends. And what a performance!

e c n a D a t t o G e… St. Barnabas Memory Care Services thanks the Joy through Dance participants, their families, Pittsburgh Ballroom volunteers and our HealthCare Partner Alzheimer’s Association. The Program is designed to aid mobility and music recall, to foster relationships and to provide a sense of purpose and joy. We believe we’ve accomplished that and so much more.
Dancing Benefits Brain Health by Renowned Neurosurgeon, Triathlete, Nutrition and Brain Health Expert Joseph C. Maroon, MD, FACS and Jeff Bost PAC
ancing is a great way for your body to stay in shape. It improves strength, endurance and balance.
As consultant to St. Barnabas’ Cognitive Brain Health Program, I was pleased to learn the positive responses from residents who participated in the Joy through Dance Program offered by a collaboration of Pittsburgh Ballroom, The Alzheimer’s Association and St. Barnabas. What many people don’t realize is that coordinated physical activity such as dancing can have significant brain benefits. Dance requires mental, physical, emotional and social skills. All these functions work together to benefit the brain and overall health. According to a 2017 study, published in Frontiers in Human Neuroscience,
12 FAITH & WORK
dancing may be better exercise than traditional fitness training when it comes to slowing the signs of aging. The study evaluated brain MRIs of dancers and non-dancers and found improved functional connectivity of the visual brain systems and the general motor learning network among the dancers. Dancing has also been shown to reduce the risk of developing dementia. A 2003 Study in the New England Journal of Medicine indicated that dance can improve brain health.
Dr. Joseph Maroon partners with St. Barnabas Health System and its Memory Care program. playing musical instruments, dancing, walking, tennis, swimming and golf. Dance was the one activity that significantly reduced dementia risk. Regular dancing reduced the risk by 76 percent, twice as much as reading; working crossword puzzles four times a week reduced the risk 47 percent. Cycling and swimming offered no benefit at all.
This 21-year study of senior citizens, aged 75 and older, monitored the rates of dementia, including Alzheimer’s, by measuring each participant’s mental alertness – studying cognitive and physical activities such as reading, writing, Stay healthy physically and mentally… doing crossword puzzles, playing cards, and dance!
And the winner of the 2019 Hoppy…
Berdella “Bert” Williams
eam player who wears many hats, always on time with a wonderful attitude and great work ethic…this is Bert Williams, awarded the 2019 Hoppy by St. Barnabas President William V. Day on February 6, 2020. This outstanding employee of the year has been with St. Barnabas for 25 years, first as a nursing assistant and then a rehab assistant. A graduate of Deer Lakes High School and School of Computer Tech, Bert lives in Gibsonia with her husband Ralph and sons Matthew and Nicholas. The “Hoppy” is given in honor of the original Hoppy, Ralph L. Blessley, beloved patient and maintenance worker, who died in 1984.
