 MARLBOROUGH HOSPITAL RANKS NUMBER TWO IN COMMONWEALTH, FOURTH IN

NEW ENGLAND FOR TREATING HEART ATTACKS

 Marlborough, MA (October 21, 2010) – Marlborough Hospital has been named the second best hospital in the state for the survival of a heart attack from the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS). The data also ranks the hospital fourth in New England and number 31 in the nation for exceptional cardiac care. Based on this health measures tool, patients presenting with a heart attack at Marlborough Hospital received treatment considered best practice nearly 100 percent of the time in 2010.

Joining Marlborough Hospital with CMS’s top cardiology recognition is UMass Memorial Medical Center, which was named the leading hospital in New England and third best in the country for surviving a heart attack. In addition, HealthAlliance Hospital was ranked as fourth in the state. Collectively, this marks the first time that three of the top five hospitals in the state were all members of UMass Memorial Health Care. The data was released by CMS through the USA Today website .

“We at Marlborough Hospital are incredibly proud of this report which includes data compiled over a three year period from 2006 to 2009,” said Danial Carucci, MD,  director, Heart and Vascular Center of Excellence at Marlborough Hospital and a member of the board of trustees.

“The end result of a coordinated, consistent, “systems” approach to treatment of heart attack victims is that patients treated here are surviving at one of the highest rates in the country. This means that whether your care is entirely delivered by Marlborough Hospital clinicians within Marlborough Hospital or you receive advanced care at UMass Memorial Medical Center in Worcester, your chance of living through this event is higher than at any other institution in Massachusetts and near the absolute top when compared with nearly 4,600 other hospitals in the United States.”

CMS developed its health outcome measures tool to improve quality in all American hospitals. The organization estimated the 30-day risk-standardized mortality rates (RSMRs) for Medicare patients hospitalized with a principal discharge diagnosis of heart attack. CMS then estimated the RSMRs from heart attack for each hospital within 30 days of submission.

Out of 4,600 hospitals across the nation the reported mortality rate at Marlborough Hospital for acute myocardial infarction (AMI) – commonly known as a heart attack – is well below the national average and places the hospital in the 99.9 percentile.

Northborough-Southborough Boy’s Youth Lacrosse registration Nov 10-24, 2010

Northborough-Southborough Boy’s Youth Lacrosse registration will take place

in November for the upcoming Spring 2011 season. This is open to boys in both towns in

grades 2 through 8.

Registration will be open for the first week (November 3 – 10) only for returning players, and

then it will open on November 10th an hour after the information meeting for all

players. Registration will close November 24th.

Registration is done online at www.nsyla.org. New families are encouraged to come to the

information night on November 10th.

We strive to take all boys who wish to play, however we have physical limits due to team size,

availability of qualified coaches (head coaches need to know lacrosse, assistant coaches we will

train), and availability of field space the towns make available to us. We have ended up with a

waiting list each year of boys who tried to register after the registration closed.

There will be an Information Night on November 10th from 7-8PM at the Northborough

Library. New and returning Parents and players are invited to come. There will be a brief

presentation and then questions are welcome. Details about our program, the sport of lacrosse,

equipment, and the league we play in and its’ philosophy are some of the topics we will cover.

ECOLOGY & BEHAVIOR OF EASTERN COYOTES/COYWOLVES

Date: Thursday, October 21, Time: 7:00-9:00pm

Location: Wolbach Farm, Sudbury

Leader/Speaker: Author, Jonathan Way, Eastern Coyote Research

SVT welcomes back Jonathan Way.  His book, Suburban Howls, will be available for purchase.  Very little is known about these animals in suburban and urban settings, but Jonathan Way's research has provided insight into these fascinating, highly successful predators.  Way is part of a team that has recently investigated the eastern coyote's genetics and has found them to be coyote and red or eastern wolf hybrids, and proposes to call them coywolves due to its mixed species origin.  His talk will focus on his team's genetic findings as well as ecological and behavioral findings from his decade long study.

On  A Mission

October 18, 2010 - Ari and Ashley Haseotes talk about OneMission.

Wake up one day and you have a beautiful son.  Wake up seven months later and that son, your first child,  has been diagnosed with a rare leukemia.  That is exactly the nightmare that Ashley and Ari Haseotes have been through.

Ashley had been working in sales prior to the birth of her son.  A family decision had been made for her to stay home and not go back to work.  But being the energetic person that she is, she had to do something.  So she called St. Jude’s Hospital and began a relationship that included donations and hosting a party to raise funds for St. Jude’s.  It was in 2006, just two months after that party that the diagnosis for their son, Nicholas, was confirmed.  Nicholas had been getting sick and not shaking off the colds.    He was admitted to Children’s Hospital in Boston where at a very young age Nicholas began the long process of fighting off the cancer. 

Ari and Ashley lived for six months at the hospital while Nicholas was under the treatments of chemotherapy and blood transfusions.  At every turn they questioned the nurses and doctors about procedures, new technology and treatments.   They were told that some diseases just don’t get the attention for drug companies to spend money on to find cures.  Nicholas had the rare form Leukemia that affects just about five hundred children a year world -wide.

Staying at the hospital the family also found out what life is like living without the conveniences of home.  Worried about their son, they stayed at the hospital for the six months.  Sharing stories, meals and getting support from other mothers and fathers that were in the same predicament.   Fortunately, little Nicholas responded to the treatments and was allowed home later that year.  Nicholas has been cancer free since coming home in late 2006.

The whole situation though, made a life changing direction for Ashley.  Compassionate about getting the best treatments and service for the children suffering from cancer to the parents who have struggled to balance work, family, home and their sick child at the hospital to the nurses and doctors that strive to do their best to comfort families and advance life saving skills and treatments for the children.  Ari and Ashley founded One Mission – www.onemission.org 

There are several reasons for the foundation.  The Haseotes family saw first hand that the larger awareness for diseases such as AIDS, diabetes and breast cancer outscored children’s cancer research by many many dollars.  Currently Children’s cancer research sees only 30 cents out of every dollar in research money. 

One Mission changes that.  Their donations, fundraisers and events all raise funds that benefit the Children’s Hospital of Boston, the Jimmy Fund and St. Jude’s.  Several of the items funded at Children’s Hospital are the life-saving research conducted by pediatric Oncologist, Dr. Scott Armstrong a leading researcher in Leukemia cancer.   It also funds the B.E.A.D.S. Program, books, toys and games along with family resource programs.  This past year they funded mini-fridges for those parents staying over at the hospital.  Before this all the parents shared one large refrigerator.

One Mission hosts several fundraisers a year.  They host Vineyard Vines shopping Events, a team in the Boston Marathon Jimmy Fund Walk, One Mission Market Place where one can buy designer clothes and accessories at awesome prices, Kids Cancer Buzz-off which cuts your hair in honor and support of kids with cancer and Wines around the World Tasting and Gala among many other smaller events around New England.  A person is always welcome to donate straight from the One Mission website.  Don’t forget to get your company involved in donations also.

One Mission’s next fundraiser is Sample. Sip. Celebrate. Wines Around the World Tasting and Gala which will be held Thursday, November 18, 2010 from 6:00 PM to 11:00 PM at the Boston Harbor Hotel, Wharf Room, Rowes Wharf, Boston.  Silent and Live Auctions, Cocktail Attire, tickets $200 with proceeds benefiting Children’s Hospital of Boston.

Ashley has found her heart and soul by working toward the goal to help end cancer in children.  Congratulations to her for her efforts.

October 18, 2010 - ARHS Field Hockey VS Marlborough.  Algonquin won 4 to 1.

Girl Scout Troop Volunteers

October 17, 2010 - were among the many volunteers helping out at the troop package drive.

Thank you for another HUGELY successful Care Package Drive for the Troops.  Through their generosity we managed to ship 439 boxes so far, weighing over 10,000 pounds to some much deserving Servicemen and Servicewomen. 

Our Community's continued support is always amazing and we all have so much to be proud of.  These wonderful boxes of "touches and tastes" of home will touch the lives of over 8,000 members of our Military.  What a testament to our Community and its support of our Troops.  This is America at it's best!!

With the dire circumstances in Afghanistan with most Troops not even having running water, no PX and living on MRE's on a Mountaintop literally it brings such joy to be able to help and send love to them.  Without those that donated time, items or monies we would not have been able to brighten so many lives before the Holidays.  And the best part is we had almost a thousand cards and letters from Kids and Adults to insert in the boxes along with the laminated fall leaves that the kids spent the time doing and decorating over the weekend.  We had help from all ages ranging from our Daisy Troops, Girl Scouts, Boy Scouts, High School, Rivers and Fay Kids, Boys and Girls Clubs, everyday people, to a 91 year old World War 2 veteran that was there both days with other Veterans.

Again, we thank you from the bottom of our hearts for your support.

SOLAR FLARE: The strongest solar flare in nearly three months erupted from sunspot 1112 on October 16th.  Remarkably, the M1-class event did not disrupt a huge magnetic filament passing right by the blast site.  Future eruptions might, however, if this active sunspot continues to grow as quickly as it has in the past few days.

COMET 103P/HARTLEY AT ITS BEST:  For backyard stargazers, the next few nights are the best time to see green Comet 103P/Hartley 2 as it approaches Earth for an 11-million-mile close encounter on Oct. 20th. Set your alarm for the dark hours before dawn, go outside, and look straight up. You will find Hartley 2 not far from the bright star Capella. Although the comet is barely visible to the unaided eye, it is easy to locate using binoculars and looks great through a backyard telescope.  Sky maps and more information may be found at http://spaceweather.com .

Services : Outreach: Cynthia Henderson Beard    


Hours: M, T, W 7:30 – 3:30, Th 7:30-1:30

Outreach is a service provided to seniors and their adult children. Many seniors living in the community want nothing more than to live out their years in their own homes. In order to do so, some people may need additional supports or equipment, technology or services that will enable them to do so safely. Following an assessment or interview, Outreach services can connect you with the supports and services that may help you live independently as well as safely in your own home.

These supports may include, but are not limited to;

  • Home Healthcare
  • Homemaking services
  • Medication Management
  • Personal Emergency systems
  • Adult Day Health
  • Caregiver support groups
  • Transportation
  • Equipment Vendors
  • Veterans Agent
  • SHINE counseling
  • Aging Service Access Point
  • Elder Law Attorneys
  • Geriatric Care Managers
  • Mediation

Outreach can also give you information and refer you to programs that are designed to help make things a little easier in these difficult times, such as;

  • Fuel Assistance
  • Prescription Advantage
  • Supplemental Assistance Nutrition Program and the local Food Pantry.

Many people find that their lives would be simplified by relocating to a Senior Community or an Assisted Living facility. Others may require skilled care and will need to move to a Nursing Home. There are many things to consider and it can be helpful to have someone to review the points of consideration or even have someone gather the information for you. Outreach can do this at a time when you may have other things on your mind.
