Supporting: Community Paramedicine Program
Closing the gap between hospital care and home recovery

Being discharged from the hospital can be just as stressful as being admitted.  The gap between hospital care and home recovery is where the greatest risk lies for at-risk patients. During the month after discharge, a paramedic pays ongoing visits to the patient to help with their transition home. Paramedics connect in real time to case workers or doctors so they can assess or stop a situation before it escalates.

Scott Stewart Founder’s Award

dr-salvoDr. Salvo is the recipient of the Dr. Scott Stewart Founder’s Award, which is named after our Hospital founder and given to recognize a person of outstanding character and exemplary commitment to Methodist Hospital and the community.

When he heard he was receiving the Founder’s Award, Dr. Salvo said it was a “shocker.” It was no surprise to the Methodist Hospital family, which had selected him to be chairman of the Department of Orthopedic Surgery in 1993 and then vice chairman in the Jefferson system. It was no surprise to his patients or to the more than 150 residents who have rotated through Methodist since 1994, when he started the orthopedic surgery training program. Mentoring residents has always been one of his favorite activities.

On the road to recovery

The ACE Unit addresses the special needs of older adults and their families by preventing health and safety complications and promoting independence. ACE provides specialized care from medical professionals, physical therapists, social workers, case managers and others. That collaboration reduces readmission, functional decline and medical complications while increasing communication among patient, family and staff.

The Fashion Fundraiser provided funding for tablets and smartphones that ACE will use for virtual consultations with families about follow-up care. Because ACE encourages patients to socialize and move, the Fundraiser also supported art and gardening programs.

Methodist Hospital’s ACE unit, is nationally designated by NICHE.*

* NICHE (Nurses Improving Care for Healthsystem Elders) recognize hospitals providing sensitive and exemplary care for all patients 65 and older.

Scott Stewart Founder’s Award

janiceIt is hard to pick the primary reason Janice Bellace has such affection for Methodist Hospital. It could be that she grew up in South Philadelphia, in Methodist’s shadow. Or that it was where her mother volunteered, and where Ms. Bellace chose to donate in her mother’s memory. Or it could be her decades as a member of the Board of Trustees for Methodist Hospital, its Foundation and Thomas Jefferson University Hospital.

Ms. Bellace is equally dedicated to her work at the University of Pennsylvania where she is the Samuel A. Blank Professor of Legal Studies and Business Ethics and Professor of Management at the Wharton School, but she always finds time for Methodist Hospital and its Foundation and what she sees as the lasting legacy that is being created.

Free Physicals to Scholar Athletes – Grades nine to 12

Getting a physical to play school sports in Pennsylvania isn’t a choice, it’s a requirement, whether the future alma mater is South Philadelphia, Ss. Neumann-Goretti, Preparatory Charter or Bok Technical high schools. The very least Dr. Jerry Steingard, the family physician namesake of Steingard & Testa Medical Association at 415 Bainbridge St., felt he could do for the kids was to make the testing free and as far-reaching as possible.

Moved by the on-court death of college basketball star Hank Gathers in 1990 and inspired by a similar program run by his doctor brother, Paul, in Phoenix, Ariz., Dr. Steingard, Founder of the Athlete Health Organization (AHO), has seen AHO flourish over the last decade from screenings kids in a school gym to a population health organization that provides comprehensive physicals and education.

The Outpatient Cardiac Rehabilitation program at Methodist Hospital has been critical to long-term wellness. The program is bursting at the seams with patients learning proper nutrition, smoking cessation techniques, better stress management and individualized exercise routines.

The Outpatient Cardiac Rehabilitation program is the only monitored cardiovascular wellness program of its kind in the Philadelphia region. “This program extends the care provided by a patient’s primary team by encouraging adherence to their recommendations for lifestyle changes and medications,” the program’s Medical Director David M. Shipon, MD, FACC, said. Dr. Shipon is a practicing non-invasive cardiologist who specializes in the prevention of heart disease.

Anne C. Rogan, RN Scholarship

A Packer Park native who lost her battle with cancer was honored with a scholarship funded by the Methodist Hospital Foundation fundraiser.

Anne Rogan worked at Methodist Hospital for more than two decades. She started out in her 20s as a secretary, but in her late 30s, was diagnosed with breast cancer. The news didn’t stop the Packer Park native from pursuing a degree in nursing — something she had always wanted to do, husband of 23 years Jim Rogan, of Deptford, N.J., said.

While at a loss of words when it comes to describing his late wife who died last year, he said she definitely was determined. “She worked full time, she went through chemo, went to school and came home and took care of us, which was pretty amazing,” Rogan said of the family — which includes daughters Nicole and Jessica.

“She balanced quite a few things. You couldn’t imagine. And guess what? She wouldn’t complain. It’s sounds crazy, but she wouldn’t complain,” he added. At Methodist, her dedication to others will serve as an inspiration through the Anne C. Rogan RN Memorial Nursing Scholarship for students pursuing a degree in nursing that are academically qualified, in financial need and are caring and compassionate — “the qualities that Anne possessed,” Diane Pirollo, Foundation executive director, said.

“She was an exemplary, compassionate person who was universally loved by everyone,” Pirollo said of the 2007 Employee of the Year. Her husband was informed of the scholarship named in his wife’s honor in July. “She would have loved that,” he said. Added daughter Jessica, “I think it’s really nice because we can help support my mom and the scholarship that’s named after her and help others who want to become nurses.”

A sell-out crowd of more than 250 people packed the beautiful tall ship MOSHULU on Penn’s Landing for fashion, cocktails and lunch in support of the Methodist Hospital Foundation.

“This is really a South Philly event for the Foundation,” Diane Pirollo, foundation executive director, said. “We’re using the shops and stores on Passyunk Avenue for all the fashions.”

The four female and four male models also have local ties—four are students at Neumann-Goretti High School, 10th and Moore streets, while four are employees of Methodist Hospital.

“I am definitely not a model by trade,” Michelle Eisenhower, M.D., associate chief medical officer for the Methodist campus of Jefferson Hospital and one of the show’s models, said. “I’m probably a lot more comfortable with my stethoscope than I am on the runway, but we’re all having a great time, and it’s a very worthwhile cause.”

Nine stores on the avenue outfitted the models: Aci Nae, Bianca Simone, Gigolo’s, Show Barrel, A Man’s Image, Pasquale Scioli, MIA Philadelphia, Harriet’s Innterwear and Frankie’s on the Avenue. Hair was done by Headhunters. “We thought it was a really good event to do—it’s for a good cause,” Janae Didonato, co-owner of Aci Nae at 1928 E. Passyunk Ave., said.  “It puts the spotlight on East Passyunk Avenue. I think a lot of people in South Philly have a lot of style.”

The groundwork of the runway show began coming together in the summer, fashion coordinator Lauren Raske said. Each attendee was greeted with a mimosa at the event’s noon start. Over four hours, a luncheon and socializing was capped by a 45-minute fashion show. Pirollo was optimistic about the exposure for all involved.

“We wanted to keep it local in the community,” Pirollo said of the fundraiser.
