Book talk with Dr. Robert Pinsk, Radiology Associates of the Main Line

Red Notice: A True Story of High Finance, Murder, and One Man's Fight for Justice is the real life story of Bill Browder, a financier who invested in the post-Soviet Russian stock market who hit it big, lost almost everything, and won it all back.”

“In the process he found himself a victim of Vladimir Putin's corrupt political regime and a ‘Red Notice’ was issued for his arrest. A Red Notice is ‘A communication issued by Interpol requesting the arrest of wanted persons, with a view to extradition.’ An Interpol Red Notice is the closest instrument to an international arrest warranting used today. It’s a fascinating read.”

We would love to hear feedback of a book you have recently read. Let us know what you have read or are currently reading.

Paoli Hospital Auxiliary installs new slate of officers

The Paoli Hospital Auxiliary installed a new Executive Committee for 2015–17 during a luncheon at White Manor Country Club in June. The incoming Paoli Hospital Auxiliary Executive Committee is comprised of President Carol Rabe Palmer, First Vice-President Helene Glazier, Second Vice-President Carolyn Ritz, Treasurer Peggy Matje, Recording Secretary Regina Donohue and Corresponding Secretary Sandra Yodesky.

The luncheon program included welcoming remarks by outgoing president Denise Degus, a Presentation of Stars by Dr. Jim Simon and the Installation of Officers by Patty Holloway, Chair of the Paoli Hospital Foundation Board of Trustees.

Auxiliary commits to supporting Paoli’s operating room needs

The Paoli Hospital Auxiliary announced a $400,000 commitment to support the hospital this fiscal year. $300,000 will be dedicated to fund equipment needs in the Operating Rooms, including the purchase of a new TRU-D Smart UVC Room Disinfection System.

A special fund will also be established to purchase other surgical equipment ranging from heart lung bypass machines to spine tables and orthopedic drill sets. The remaining $100,000 will support the Foundation’s Always There with Great Care Campaign.

State Farm supports mock crash events

For the seventh consecutive year, Paoli Hospital, through the support of State Farm, offered Mock Crash events at four area high schools. A Mock Crash is a theatrical program performed on a school’s campus in which a car crash caused by an intoxicated student driver is staged.

Brad Zerr, director, Community Health Services, Paoli states, “We are incredibly grateful to continue this important partnership with State Farm. With their support, it is our hope that every student will make safe decisions when driving as a result of experiencing the Mock Crash program.”

Renovations enhance the hospital’s Prayer and Meditation Room

The Prayer and Meditation room in the valet lobby of the hospital was recently renovated to better accommodate visitors, patients and staff of different religious faiths seeking a space to pray or reflect. Paoli Hospital President Jim Paradis joined members of the Paoli Hospital Auxiliary, area clergy and hospital chaplain Barbara Emery to dedicate the room. The meditation room is respectful of all religions, including Christianity, Muslim and Judaism. The stained glass artwork featured was donated by the Anthony Wayne Branch in memory of Carolyn Fretz and Lyn Frey.

“Born in England, I moved to Pennsylvania as a young bride. My first contacts with Paoli Hospital came when my young children needed medical attention, oftentimes of an emergency nature.”

“Impressed with the caring and professional atmosphere at Paoli, I happily decided to become a volunteer in the operating rooms, which certainly was a most enlightening and educational experience. The relationships forged with staff and administrators were, I feel, key to my young family’s continued well-being.”

“The expert and sympathetic attention I later received during a bout with cancer will forever remain in my memory.”

“Top medical care is critical to a healthy life and requires strong community involvement and support. I am proud to include Paoli Hospital in my annual giving program as well as my estate plan and fully intend to continue this commitment.”
