05:13
In April of 2015, supporters gathered to raise money for a fund that helps fulfill the wishes of Memorial Home Services hospice patients. The goal of hospice is to focus on quality of life for every patient-physically, emotionally and spiritually. Much time is spent reflecting with patients and families about their memories, hopes and wishes. Comments of "I wish I could..." or "I wish I had..." are common. Join us as we support the Sharing Wishes Fund at our annual Hospice Gala. Whether it is a special family-and-friends gathering or a visit from a distant loved one, your donation can help make the wish of a hospice patient become a reality. You can help. Donate today at SharingWishesFund.org.

Time-Lapse Video of Tower Crane Build at Memorial Medical Center
 
02:17
A 200-foot tower crane has taken its place just outside the main entrance of Memorial Medical Center. The 100,000 pound behemoth will call MMC's front lawn home for the next three years, and will be responsible for a large portion of the construction on the new Patient Care Tower. The assembly of the crane itself was a fairly involved operation. Read about the crane erection at AdvancingCareByDesign.com, and take a look at our video of the whole process—from beginning to end, over the course of just five days beginning Monday, Aug. 5. The tower crane is now fully operational, and has begun its work on the Patient Care Tower.

The Story of a 26-Year-Old Stroke Patient
 
03:40
At age 26, Darah Nelson is far younger than the average stroke patient. Yet on Oct. 18, 2012, she found herself in her office, the door closed, and unable to move or speak. A family friend, who had once experienced a stroke, happened to stop by, opened her door and quickly recognized the signs of a stroke. Darah arrived via ambulance to Memorial Medical Center, where the Emergency Department team launched its Star 45 program, the 45-minute diagnostic timeline that determines whether patients, like Darah, are candidates for stroke treatment. This video chronicles her story.

Advancing Care by Design: A Field Trip to Selvaggio Steel
 
01:53
We love our local connections to Springfield-based companies, and that's certainly true with the partnership between Memorial Medical Center and Selvaggio Steel, a family-owned company based in Springfield that is fabricating more than 1,800 tons of structural steel for MMC's Advancing Care by Design expansion project. Memorial Medical Center is dedicated to using local vendors and labor when at all possible. "That has created a huge positive environment in the community, allowing the local economy to grow," said president Mark Selvaggio, who with his brother, vice president Tony Selvaggio, manages Selvaggio Steel, which was founded by their father, Joe, in 1957. Selvaggio Steel is doing all the structural steel work for Advancing Care by Design, which will transform MMC and how we deliver care to the hundreds of thousands of patients we serve each year. The company also handled the structural steel work for two other buildings on Memorial's campus: the Springfield Clinic First building and the Springfield Clinic First North building under construction. Selvaggio is one of the largest and most automated structural steel companies in Illinois, Mark said. It was the first company in Illinois to take advantage of 3D computer-aided drafting for steel and is certified by the American Institute of Steel Construction -- the gold standard in the industry. With state-of-the-art fabrication equipment and computer technology, the company has created a safer work environment for its employees and is able to fabricate even more precise steel parts for its clients in less time.

Advancing Care by Design, Memorial Medical Center Expansion Project
 
07:16
Memorial Medical Center announced in September 2012 its Advancing Care by Design expansion project, a historic multi-year endeavor that will transform the medical center and how we deliver care to the hundreds of thousands of patients we serve each year. When this project is complete, Memorial Medical Center will offer our patients enhanced privacy and safety while improving the comfort and accommodations for families and visitors, as well as expand our operating room capacity and strengthen our relationship with the educational mission of the SIU School of Medicine and other regional healthcare academic partners. The expansion is expected to be fully operational in 2016. Please note: As of April 2014, Memorial's executive vice president and chief operating officer is Charles Callahan, PhD. Former COO Doug Rahn, DBA, is now the president and chief executive officer for Passavant Area Hospital in Jacksonville. Additionally, the Memorial Center for Learning & Innovation — set to be complete in early 2015 — will now feature four floors instead of three.

Memorial: Through a Patient's Eyes
 
01:56
How a patient feels is more than just a physical question. It’s very common for patients – and their family members – to feel anxiety, confusion and fear while in a hospital or a physician’s office. Therefore, it is critical that caregivers provide excellent medical/physical care while at the same time reducing stress and anxiety by making patients feel as relaxed and comfortable as possible. To help all employees understand the patient experience from the patient’s perspective, a video was created for the last leadership development sessions and is now available for all employees.

Sharon's unexpected recovery from a da Vinci hysterectomy.
 
00:56
Recovering from a traditional abdominal hysterectomy can be a long and painful process. The open surgery leaves a wide incision across the abdomen, increasing the recovery time as well as the risk of infection. But it's not the only option. Today, the da Vinci surgical system allows the surgeon to operate through several small incisions. That means patients experience shorter hospital stays, less pain, less blood loss and less scarring. This is local patient Sharon's account of her unexpected recovery from a da Vinci surgical experience.

What is a Patient-Centered Medical Home?
 
03:07
A patient-centered medical home is a nice conglomeration of words, but what does it mean for you, the patient? "Patient-centered is the important part of this phrase," said Gerald Suchomski, MD, who serves as the quality medical director at Memorial Physician Services. "It means we've turned the focus of healthcare delivery from the doctors to the patient." According to the National Committee for Quality Assurance (NCQA), a private, not-for-profit organization dedicated to improving healthcare quality, a patient-centered medical home highlights those primary care providers who have demonstrated that they can coordinate care among all doctors and health care providers on behalf of their patients. Other specific patient-centered medical home criteria include: • Providing patients with a better understanding of their treatment options and partnering with them in their healthcare decisions • Providing better access through expanded hours and the web • Working in teams to prevent problems and manage chronic conditions to keep patients as healthy as possible The NCQA offers three levels of patient-centered medical home recognition. Memorial Physician Services' primary care clinics have been recognized as a Level 3 patient-centered medical home, the highest level possible. In this video, Dr. Suchomski further explains the significance of being recognized as a Level 3 Patient-Centered Medical Home and what it means to the patients of Memorial Physician Services.

Shirley Jensen - The new Special Procedures Area at Abraham Lincoln Memorial Hospital.
 
01:25
Shirley Jensen has been receiving treatments at ALMH's same-day care department for more than a year. She has a condition called plastic anemia, which prevents her bone marrow from producing the levels of blood her body requires. Same-day care, now known as the Special Procedures Area (SPA), has increased capacity from nine to 11 rooms. The rooms emphasize patient comfort chairs for family members, as well as private bathrooms. Computers in each room allow caregivers to conduct bedside charting. Shirley is particularly glad her treatments are easier to get to on the first floor of our new hospital. In the past, she has visited ALMH each Tuesday for a blood draw; if her levels are out of line, she returns the next day for a blood transfusion. The staff is wonderful, Shirley says. "They work together and take care of the patient." Procedures conducted in SPA include transfusions, injections, IVs, PICC line maintenance and removal and dressing changes. The SPA is conveniently located next to surgery, connected with a private inner hallway, so outpatient surgery patients are not pushed through a public corridor.

Virgil Davis - A graduate of Memorial's inpatient stroke rehab program.
 
01:58
Virgil Davis spent about five weeks on Memorial's Inpatient Rehab unit before going home and undergoing additional rehabilitation as an outpatient at Memorial's Koke Mill Medical Center. To keep his fingers and mind agile, he began experimenting with woodworking about a year after his stroke. Scattered throughout his Springfield home and cabin in Pike County is handmade evidence that 73-year-old Davis has come a long way since suffering a severe stroke in 2003. Whistles made out of sticks or deer antlers, toilet paper dispensers that resemble a fishing pole reel, Fighting Illini key chains, wine bottle holders — the only limit to what Davis can create is his imagination. Memorial's inpatient stroke rehab program is accredited by the Commission on Accreditation of Rehabilitation Facilities (CARF) and provides a multidisciplinary approach to care.

The new MRI suite at Abraham Lincoln Memorial Hospital.
 
01:08
Patient privacy is important, and the new diagnostics area, which includes radiology, laboratory, sleep study and cardio-pulmonary, has many enhanced features to ensure privacy. Patients in need of diagnostic tests are escorted to their rooms for appointments, and registration is done either in advance by phone or at the bedside. When possible, testing is brought to the patient in a universal testing room, limiting patients' travel between various departments and improving their safety. Radiology's floor plan is also much more patient friendly. An outer patient corridor and an inner staff corridor help with traffic flow, and a central work area allows staff to work together in an effective and efficient manner. Additional space in the new hospital provides CT patients with a separate prep room where they can drink oral CT contrast in privacy while watching TV or reading a magazine. In the old hospital, patients preparing for a CT sat in a waiting room alongside other patients and family members. Another new addition is the in-house MRI suite. In the past, a mobile truck provided ALMH patients with access to MRIs. With the new MRI suite, there will be seven new patient exams available, providing our patients with access to cutting-edge technology they expect and deserve. Nearby, the sleep study labs were designed with patient comfort in mind. Their first-floor location provides easy access, and the soothing atmosphere with its calming colors helps patients relax during their procedures. Much of what happens is the laboratory is behind-the-scenes, but its impact on patient care is significant. Design features in the lab will enhance communication among employees and improve the work flow, allowing for more efficient and effective patient care.

Hand Transplant Program at Memorial Medical Center
 
02:39
In 2014, Southern Illinois University School of Medicine launched the first clinical hand transplant program in Illinois. This program, which is the 11th in the nation, builds on a long-standing history of successful replantation -- or re-attachment -- of amputated fingers, hands and upper extremities by SIU's plastic and reconstructive hand surgeons. The procedures are performed at Memorial Medical Center. Hand transplantation is an option for people who have lost one or both hands below the elbow and may even be beneficial for some above-elbow amputees. The goal is to restore hand function and sensation as well as a state of wholeness to the body.

Each year, 54,000 Americans are diagnosed with kidney cancer and more than 13,000 die from this disease. Fortunately, with early diagnosis and treatment, kidney cancer can be cured. If found early, the survival rate ranges from 79-100%. Removing the entire kidney is not the only option. Many times, only a portion of the kidney needs removed, called a partial nephrectomy. Memorial Medical Center in Springfield, Illinois, offers many treatment options for those suffering from kidney tumors.
