New and Improved Kid-Friendly Treatment Rooms thanks to Women in Philanthropy.
Dear Supporters, Friends and Neighbors,
Change is in the air at Lakeland Regional and not just the change from summer to fall. In this past
year, weve welcomed new programs, new faces and newly improved spaces to our community hospital.
The LRMC Foundation, of course, has played a large role in this change as you will see in the following
pages. From our Emergency Department renovations to new Pediatric treatment rooms to exciting
programs for seniors, your Foundation has been working hard to put your gifts to good use.
Im confident that you will find this issue of Touching Lives packed with new information about some exciting changes going on
throughout our hospital. Providing the best healthcare for our community continues to be a challenge, which makes our roles as
philanthropists even more vital. We are so grateful for the generosity and support received from our community. We could not
reach and exceed our goals of improving healthcare without this commitment. Together we will continue our tradition of excellence.
Thank you for learning more about the LRMC Foundation by reading this publication, and if you have any questions or want more
information, dont hesitate to contact the Foundation.

On a Fast Track to compassionate healing.The LRMC Emergency Department
ccording to maureen Leckie, Director of emergency Services, one of the first
things on a patients mind as soon as he or she walks in the door of the emergency
Department (eD) is How quickly will they see me? Therefore, no one understands the
need for speed better than our eD staff. They work tirelessly 24/7 to get their patients
the treatment they need as soon as possible. of course, solving that logistical puzzle is like
trying to change the tires on a moving bus it would make most engineers dizzy!
Last year there were a total of 154,577 visits (around 423 per day) to Lakeland Regional
medical Centers emergency Department. With this number of people coming through the
department every year, there is a constant need for improvement.
A Quick Glance at ED Changes
Redesigned lobby and Fast Track area New Pediatric ED and Critical Care Units Addition of Vertical waiting rooms New Voice-Activated dictation system New medication bar code scanning system for patient safety
Recently re-opened Fast Track area
The first stop in the Emergency Department Due to open in late october, the eD lobby is getting a major facelift. It will feature a much more open, larger space.
And although the goal is to get patients out of the lobby quickly, it is important to make sure the patients who do have to
wait are as comfortable as possible.
In addition, LRmCs Fast Track area has a new look and improved processes. Fast
Track is an area designated to the care of those with non-urgent illnesses or injuries
seeking treatment from the emergency Department.
More flow, less waitThe newly renovated Fast Track opened July 13, and Leckie has already received
positive feedback regarding the new open floor plan and greatly enhanced aesthetics.
However, those are not the only improvements that patients and employees are
noticing. We are especially proud of the efficiencies that have been brought to the
process and the way our team has joined together to improve the flow of Fast Track.
As a result of the changes, we are seeing significant improvements in the amount of
time patients are spending in Fast Track, says Leckie.
one of those flow related improvements involves getting multiple assessments
done simultaneously with different members of the care team, which cuts down on
wait times. Another improvement is the addition of vertical waiting rooms. This new trend in hospitals around the
country features common waiting areas for patients who dont require bedside care and can be comfortable sitting upright
while waiting on test results or discharge orders. The vertical waiting room is equipped with recliners, magazines and a
television for patient comfort.
Patients and staff enjoy open comfortThese new improvements enhance some major renovations done
in the last few years to the Critical Care and Pediatric areas of the
emergency department. The improvements to the Critical Care unit
have greatly helped the flow patterns in the use of the space, says
Director maureen Leckie shows off
the new vertical waiting room area.
The newly renovated
critical care unit takes care of the
most serious emergency needs.
New waiting area for Pediatric eD
On a Fast Track continued from page 3
Sallie Smith, BSN, Critical Care Supervisor. We can get patients from the lobby and into treatment a whole lot quicker.
And we have better visualization of the space, which promotes teamwork.
The feeling is mutual among patients and families visiting the new Pediatric Emergency Department. Thanks to a
grant from the LRmC Foundation, the Pediatric eD features its own waiting area with toys and a virtual aquarium. Bridget
Smith, there recently with her son Parker remarked, We have always had great care at LRmC. The new Pediatric space is
beautiful. I was aware that there were plans for renovations but was not sure it had been done yet. We visited the old
space many times, and this is so much nicer. everyone is polite, and they really care about their patients. I know a lot of the
staff, and it is great to see familiar faces.
The latest technology enhances information managementAnd of course, new technology is changing
the way care is delivered in the Emergency
Department. The eD recently introduced a new
medication bar code scanner system, which
ensures that the right patients get the right
medications. Also, a new voice-activated
dictation system makes it much easier for
doctors to keep track of medical records. They
speak into a headset similar to a phone receiver,
and the new program inputs all the information
they say into the computer. The new system is phenomenal! says Dr. matthew Schillinger, an eD Physician. Hal escowitz,
mD, also an eD Physician adds, The new system makes for much cleaner medical records. All the records are now electronic.
The goal: provide the best care anywhereone would think that with all these changes in place, the eD staff and leadership would rest assured that LRmC is ahead
of the game in managing all the care needs of patients, doctors, nurses, family members, etc. However, with the number
of patients starting to creep higher each day as fall and flu season
approaches, our eD team is still constantly thinking and working on
ways to give patients the best care possible with the best
results possible. n
emergency physicians enjoy using the new voice-activated dictation system.
The new eD Lobby area will re-open in october.
The newly renovated
critical care unit takes care of the
most serious emergency needs.
I was in the emergency room for a few hours today with a
woman who is 97. She had fallen and was in pain.
I just knew because of her age and Alzheimers that she
would not be of utmost importance. I could not believe
how she was taken care of. It was if she were a celebrity.
She was given such wonderful care. She was important to
them. Most older people seem to not matter too much. She
made them laugh with her sharp wit. They really cared for
her and showed their professional selves to her. She had no
idea where she was but she knew those hands who touched
her were gentle and kind.
She weighs 84 pounds, and they knew how fragile she is.
They warned her the needle might sting a bit, and they
treated her if she were royalty ... They constantly checked
on her well being.
I have been her caregiver for five years, and I dreaded her
being at the hospital without me ... I didnt worry after
leaving there today at 5 PM. I knew she was in great hands.
You people are spectacular for all you do, and I personally
want to thank all of you. There is one who really stood out,
and her name is Lisa Perez. She dripped with kindness, and
I needed that today more than ever.
Thank you Lisa and all the staff at the Emergency Room of
LRMC ... WHAT A STAFF!!!!
Real-life letters of gratitude to LRMC.

3On Monday morning, I arrived at the ER with chest pain. I
was treated with the utmost care and professional service by
the staff in ER. After being transferred to the chest pain ward
I was delighted to have the wonderful and caring attention
of the nurses, technicians, etc. I was sent to the testing area
where I was also treated with great care and attention. Please
tell your staff that they are doing a wonderful job in serving
the folks of Polk County. Even the young man who came to the
room following my testing to see if I would like something to
eat was kind and polite. We are blessed to have such a wonderful
and caring hospital and staff. Please thank them for me.
Dear Emergency Room staff,
2 Dear Lakeland Regional Cancer Center staff,
Yours Truly, The Husband of an LRCC patient.
I would like to donate these two checks to Lakeland Regional
Cancer Center for the wonderful treatment my wife received
during her treatment. We have great respect for your center and
the care was terrific, it was AAA as far as we were concerned.
Touching Lives Fall 2011 7
hen you walk into the Lakeland Regional Cancer Center, you are bound to
notice two unique chairs just beyond the entrance. These new chairs not
only bring an added sense of style and comfort to LRCC, the dozens of hand-written
signatures they each behold have deep meaning. Both chairs were a donation from
Ethan Allen Tampa Bay and were signed by their staff who participated in the
American Cancer Societys Making Strides Against Cancer event. With messages
such as Sandra Hines 2 1/2 year survivor and in memory of my grandmother, each
signature represents a life touched by cancer in some way. Thank you to the Ethan
Allen Company of Tampa Bay for such a special gift.
WYouve heard of designer chairs. How about signer chairs?
Windows of Hope Honor Sheila Cobb Savages zest for life.
The LRMC Foundation would like to express our thanks to the family of Sheila Cobb
Savage for honoring her life through a gift to the Lakeland Regional Cancer Center.
Sheila Cobb Savage had a zest for life. Always stylish, Sheila believed in having fun!
So much so that she requested her family play Surfin USA at her funeral.
A little over six years ago, Sheila was diagnosed with colon cancer by the physicians
at Lakeland Regional Cancer Center. In conjunction with this diagnosis, a spot
was found on her liver as well, and Sheila was given four months to live. She began
receiving radiation and chemotherapy treatments at LRCC.
And she began living she never lost her hair as many chemo patients do and
always arrived for her treatments with her fingernails painted just so. Sheilas mother,
Christine Cobb, shared that all the staff at LRCC loved her fingernails and always
checked them out on each of her visits.
And Sheila lived for years, not months. Christine credits the expert and caring staff at LRCC for helping Sheila fight for so many
years. And when Sheila finally gave in to the cancer, Christine and her granddaughter, Vanessa Chamblee (Sheilas daughter) made
a very generous gift to the Windows of Hope fund at LRCC. Grace Dean (Sheilas aunt) said, Sheila loved to receive her chemo
treatments in the beautiful area created at LRCC and enjoyed being able to look through the stained glass windows out onto the
peaceful gardens and lake at LRCC.
Vanessa added that this was just a drop in a bucket compared to what her mother had received from LRCC. My mom was really
blessed with such wonderful care, and for that we are so grateful to the staff at LRCC.
Sheilas aunt, Grace Dean, and mother, Christine Cobb.

Thanks to Women in Philanthropy, were better equipped to serve, heal and help.
Pediatric Rehab Thanks to Women in Philanthropy, the Pediatric Rehab program at the Lakeland
Regional Outpatient Rehabilitative and Sports Medicine Clinic received some
much needed equipment specifically a LiteGait, a Bubble Wall and a Kinect
system. According to the therapists, The lite gait has been a huge blessing and
has enabled us to work on gait and weight bearing with a variety of children
with multiple diagnoses such as spina bifida, cerebral palsy and anglemans
syndrome. The equipment provides support and safety, while at the same time
freeing the therapists hands in order to work on posture, foot placement or any
variety of things. Patients who may spend the whole day in a wheelchair are
helped into a standing position which is beneficial for bone development as well
as psycho-social skills. Furthermore, the Kinect has been a wonderful tool thats
been used with patients ranging from age 5-80. On the pediatric side of things,
the Kinect is often used as a reward ... while at the same time sneaking in some
Pediatric Treatment Rooms Pediatric patients can now take a trip to the jungle or go under the sea when
they receive painful procedures. This fall, the Kid Care Station at LRMC will
open two brand new treatment rooms for use after some extensive kid-friendly
redecorating. Their new, improved look includes amazing visual murals that are
sure to divert childrens attention from whatever procedure they need to endure.
This is just one of the many ways LRMCs Child Life Therapy program works to
decrease the trauma that kids experience when they are hospitalized.
LRMC Lactation Room In keeping with LRMCs support of working mothers, Women in Philanthropy was pleased to support
the creation of a new employee worksite lactation room. New mothers returning to work at LRMC have
always been supported in their efforts to provide the Gold Standard of breast milk to their babies and
with the addition of the lactation room they will have a designated private space to express their milk on
the job. The lactation room has two private areas for employees to express breast milk and is equipped
with two hospital-grade Medela Lactina breast pumps, a microwave for employees who would like to heat
their lunch, and a fully functional bathroom and sink area for washing pump parts.

Lakeland Regional Medical Center is very proud to be among hospitals
recognized recently by the Florida Hospital Association for success in
eliminating central-line bloodstream infections in its intensive care units.
These infections pose a severe danger to vulnerable ICU patients. Central lines
are placed into large veins, such as the internal jugular veins in the neck, for
use in administering fluids, drawing blood and other functions. LRMC went
nine months or longer without having any bloodstream infections associated
with central lines in its intensive care unit on the third floor of the C wing,
according to hospital association results released this month.

The Lakeland Center Hollingsworth Ballroom
enior Care Club kicked off officially in January of
this year offering an expanded array of programs for
seniors that include opportunities for healthy fun, fellowship
and learning all with a goal of improving senior health and
better connecting seniors to their community hospital.
LRMCommunityOver 1,200 members strong and getting stronger every day.
S I would sum up my Senior Club experience as VERY educational. I really get the sense that Lakeland Regional cares about seniors, said Betty Bertino, a Senior Care Club
member. Senior Care Club has more than 1,200 members
around Polk County and 435 have attended events so far this
year. Activities for Senior Care club include informational
events and fun outings as well as flu shots, screenings and
brown-bag medication programs. According to Romaine
Zajder, another member, The programs are informative and
all very interesting.
Some of the past events have included a nature tour at
Circle B Bar Reserve, a Summer Exercise Series, a movie
screening and a quilt show. Another popular activity, with
mary Hoover shows off her Cathedral Window quilt that was voted the
Peoples Favorite she made it at age 82 and it was her first quilt!
more than 25 quilts were displayed by Senior Club members and hospital
employees/volunteers in may as a way to celebrate older Americans and
the legacy they weave into the fabric of our community.
Senior Care Club members are currently attending programs at LRmC on a variety of Health topics.
Look for a new series in the spring!
12 Touching Lives Fall 2011
nearly 70 seniors participating, has been classes on using Facebook, which helps the
seniors stay connected to their community of friends and
family. I learned something I didnt know anything about,
said Betty Bertino about the Facebook class. There is also
currently an ongoing Health Matters series focusing on
strokes, safety and emergency services, healthy eating, new
technology and advances in healthcare.
According to MaryJane Seymour, Manager of Advanced Practice Nursing, The Senior
Care Club fits in so well with our efforts in gerontology at LRMC. She notes, We work
very hard to educate our nurses on the special needs of older adults and the unique risks
they face as patients. At the same time the Care Club is making community seniors more informed about their own health and
Holly Parrish, coordinator of Senior Care Club activities adds,
The more comfortable our seniors are with their hospital and its
resources, the more likely they will advocate for their own health
needs in the future. We work really hard to bring healthcare
information to seniors in fun and social settings.
Charles Burdette, another active club member, said recently,
The Senior Care Club is the best bargain in the whole town.
I cant say enough positive things. Every tour has been an eye
opener. Its like having a buffet of useful information that is beneficial.
In march, Senior Care Club members took to the outdoors with a private tour of the Circle B Bar Reserve.
Seniors Club members got to test out some of the newer exercise crazes on a Saturday morning this summer thanks to our physical and occupational
therapy team at the Lakeland Regional Rehabilitation & Sports medicine Clinic.
Every tour has been an eye opener. Its like having a buffet of useful information that is beneficial.

Dear Friends,One year ago, I was given the opportunity to dive head-first into the exciting and challenging waters
of Lakeland Regional Medical Center. Throughout 2011, we have faced change, as a nation, a state
and a hospital. Thank you for your continued support, as LRMC remains committed to delivering
national-level patient safety, clinical care and satisfaction at the lowest possible cost to our patients
so that our hospital remains viable for our community.
As we look forward to the great journey ahead, our priority is to promote individual and community
health, wellness and disease prevention. We are committed to achieving these goals by working with our community partners
and educating and serving as a resource to the public. It is our hope that our friends in this area, and surrounding areas, will take
advantage of our vast educational opportunities to become proactive with their health. LRMC will also take all appropriate
measures to ensure affordable access to healthcare.
This year, LRMC has diligently worked, and will continue to work, to develop a fiscally strong and collaborative health system.
We created an organizational structure centered on quality, performance improvement and patient safety.
Among the most exciting changes was the recruitment of a new Executive Vice President for Clinical Integration. Dr. Mack Reavis,
whose position at LRMC is the number-two role, will lead the clinical integration and physician engagement. Dr. Reavis will focus
our efforts on improving access, affordability, equality in the care provided, patient safety, clinical outcomes, patient empowerment
and patient and family satisfaction.
We are also addressing the significant financial challenges to healthcare and are excited about the leadership and energy our
new Chief Financial Officer Evan Jones and Chief Compliance Officer Michael Spake bring to our organization. Their combined
experience in financial growth, innovation and government relations will strengthen us as we deal with such issues as this years
Medicaid reductions (amounting to a $12 million net impact on LRMC) and a $12 million lease payment to the City of Lakeland. We
are eagerly working with our community partners and City leaders to find solutions that serve all of our needs and, most importantly,
serve those in need of healthcare.
Rest assured that now more than ever, Lakeland Regional will research and evaluate all projects to ensure that wise investments are
made. We will continue to grow in ways that benefit our patients. From offering state-of-the-art technology, elite healthcare providers,
fully electronic medical records and cutting-edge procedures, we vow to further broaden and expand quality healthcare services.
As we look forward to 2012 and beyond, Lakeland Regional maintains its commitment to create the best healthcare experiences,
and our patients will always be top-of-mind. We will place a tenacious focus on clinical services, while advocating for ways we can
help achieve affordable healthcare. Again, thank you for your support and partnership as we navigate these waters together with
a common goal: exceptional patient care.
