In 2015, Huntington Hospital provided a total of $101 million worth of health care services and support to residents of the greater Pasadena area.“Community benefits go beyond traditional care provided in the emergency department, operating room, or in a hospital bed,” said Stephen A. Ralph, president and chief executive officer, Huntington Hospital. “It is our responsibility and honor to provide these services to anyone who walks through our hospital doors.”These community benefits include:• Charity care for those patients unable to pay. Charity care also includes the hospital absorbing the differences between the actual cost of the care and the amount of money received for patients covered by Medicare and/or Medi-Cal.• Health research, education, and training, including clinical research, graduate medical education programs, scholarships, and continuing education in nursing and many other disciplines.• Benefits directed at the community-at-large, such as seniors, other vulnerable populations or the underserved, and those suffering from specific diseases (such as heart failure). It also includes health screenings, community health fairs, flu shots, and charitable donations to others doing preventive work of care in the community.These benefits are described in detail in an annual Community Benefits Report submitted to the state each May. In addition to this traditional charity care, Huntington Hospital is now expanding its current Medi-Cal contract to include Managed Medi-Cal to further increase access to vital care.To review the complete 2015 Community Benefits report, please visit: http://www.huntingtonhospital.com/Resource.ashx?sn=HHBenefitsPlan2015About Huntington HospitalHuntington Hospital, www.huntingtonhospital.com, is a 625-bed not-for-profit hospital in Pasadena, California.

By Carolina Contreras/Diálogo September 18, 2017 Hasta cuÃ¡ndo lo dirÃ© en todos los sitios que puedo ?, no entiendo cÃ³mo los Sres. periodistas estudian tanto para cometer semejantes errores por falta de acuciosidad y conocimientos; segÃºn la Real Academia EspaÃ±ola (RAE), Pilotear significa instalar pilotes, operar, conducir o manejar un automÃ³vil , buque o aeronave, se dice Pilotar. Dejen de dar pena y confundir a los lectores por favor. No entiendo cÃ³mo los periodistas, que estudian tanto, cometen este tipo de errores por falta de acuciosidad o de conocimientos. SegÃºn la Real Academia EspaÃ±ola (RAE), Pilotear significa hincar pilotes; operar, manejar o conducir un automÃ³vil, buque o aeronave, se dice Pilotar. No confundan a la gente gente por favor Hola. No existe Capitana ni en las FFAA de Chile ser les dice asÃ. Cuan me contenta y emociona que sÃ©ndas mujeres hoy se destaquen por hacer una faena que solo hombres desempeÃ±aban y es que la mujer ya no solamente es la costilla del hombre, tambien su ayudante incondicional y felicitaciones a La >Real Fuerza AÃ©rea Chilena por hacer del sexo ” DÃ©bil” un sÃ©xo fuerte. On July 14th, two officers from the Chilean Air Force (FACh, per its Spanish acronym) completed the first flight flown solely by women. The flight crew included FACh Captain Viviana Lillo as the flight captain and FACh Captain Dagny Cubillos as co-pilot. The Boeing 737 departed from the runway at the FACh’s 10th Air Group in Santiago, headed for Puerto Montt in southern Chile. This historic voyage, led by the first graduating class of female officers with a specialization in flying heavy aircraft, logged 1,032 kilometers in a flight time of 160 minutes. “It was doubly satisfying, personally and professionally, to be on the team of this first female crew,” Capt. Lillo told Diálogo. “Also because it was my first flight as captain of an aircraft.” “Making history as a member of FACh’s first female flight was a great honor,” Capt. Cubillos told Diálogo. “We had always flown with male flight captains, so this trip was special.” The Boeing 737 is a 36-meter long, jet-propelled airplane manufactured in the United States. It is capable of transporting 118 passengers and is classified as a heavy aircraft intended for transporting passengers and cargo. For FACh, it serves the mission of being the presidential airplane. It also conducts community support missions during emergencies, natural disasters, and the transfer of patients and organs, among other uses. Training to break down barriers Women first entered FACh in 2000. That same year, then Cadet Lillo entered the institution with the dream of becoming a transport pilot. “I wanted to contribute to my country through my work and help people in the community,” she said. She graduated from the academy in 2003 and began the instrument course on trainer planes such as the Pillán. Later came tactical training as well as her specialization in transport, combat, and helicopter aircraft. Afterwards, she started gaining experience as a co-pilot on different types of missions in smaller planes such as the Twin Otter, which has a 12-person capacity. “Thanks to the rigorous training, you achieve a level of autonomy, and you get the tools needed to face these kinds of challenges,” Capt. Lillo explained. She joined FACh’s 10th Air Group in 2010 and began her specialization on the Boeing 737, which culminated in 2017 when she became the nation’s first female captain of a heavy transport flight. “My example is a way of showing women that we have no limits,” Capt. Lillo said. “We can advance in our lives and develop ourselves the same way that our male colleagues do.” Her fantasy of flying and her interest in the military led Capt. Cubillos to make a professional career of FACh, beginning 15 years ago. She has devoted the last three years to flying the Boeing 737. Still in training to become a flight captain, this co-pilot of the first female flight noted that the institution that she represents has always given her the same opportunities as her male colleagues. “Through hard work and much rigor, we are showing that we have the same capabilities,” she said. “There are no major differences.” An easy trip At the Operations Department of FACh’s 10th Air Group, a request was received for a flight to Puerto Montt on July 14th, to transfer military personnel. It was assigned to the two female pilots. At that moment, they put everything they had learned to the test. “We are not immune to mishaps, and that’s why we have to be very diligent in these duties,” Capt. Lillo said. “This is teamwork, not just us two pilots. There is a group of professionals for each flight.” “We followed all of the security steps and weather checks in order to have an easy flight and a soft landing. And it worked out,” Capt. Cubillos explained. “The condition of the aircraft, the conditions along the route and at the destination are some of the parameters that you have to study and control.” Flight hours are a key requirement for the cabin crew. In this case, they must complete a minimum of 400 hours in the plane they specialized on (the 737 model), and 900 hours in other medium-size planes. For both officers, who are also experienced in peacekeeping, rescue, and Antarctic missions, even though these trips require the same rigor, some are more meaningful than others. Flights to support the community – such as those made in order to transfer organs and patients, especially children – are the most relevant to them. Also meaningful to them are flights to assist with fighting fires such as the ones that impacted central and southern Chile in February 2017, when personnel were transferred to fight the fires. “The thanks we get from people we’ve helped in different places across the country makes this work meaningful,” Capt. Cubillos concluded.

Barcelona are set to be without Lionel Messi for around three weeks after he ruptured an adductor muscle in his right leg in the 1-1 draw at home to Atletico Madrid on Wednesday night.The Argentinian maestro appeared to suffer the injury after tussling for possession with Atletico defender Diego Godin and was replaced by Arda Turan with 58 minutes gone.Worse was to follow for Barca as Angel Correa then equalised for the visitors, jinking past Javier Mascherano and steering a shot past Marc-Andre ter Stegen and in off a post. The news about Messi was a further blow to Barcelona, who were unable to make any inroads into Real Madrid’s three-point lead at the top despite Ivan Rakitic heading them in front against Diego Simeone’s side in the 41st minute.The club confirmed the time-frame of Messi’s injury in a tweet from the club’s official account, and coach Luis Enrique told the Spanish media: “Losing Messi is a loss to us and a loss to football. With Leo we are stronger, but we are still strong without him.”The injury means Messi is set to miss LaLiga matches against Sporting Gijon and Celta Vigo plus a Champions League tie away to Borussia Monchengladbach in between.Enrique admitted it would be “difficult to protect” Messi with the games coming thick and fast for Barcelona and with Argentina no doubt desperate to have him involved in next month’s World Cup qualifiers.Enrique said Atletico had been a tough nut for his side to crack.“When there are 11 guys in the area, co-ordinated like that, it takes a lot out of us to break them down,” he said in quotes reported by Marca.“This result is not what we wanted, but we must move on.”There was also an injury for midfielder Sergio Busquets just before Messi suffered his problem, which will somewhat overshadow the ceremony to mark Busquets renewing his Barcelona contract until 2021 on Thursday.Share this:FacebookRedditTwitterPrintPinterestEmailWhatsAppSkypeLinkedInTumblrPocketTelegram
The scoring woes continued in Wednesday night’s contest for the University of Wisconsin men’s basketball team (4-4, 0-0 Big Ten) as they dropped their third consecutive game of the season.The Badgers now sit at .500 on season after losing in their first true road test against the North Carolina State Wolfpack (6-2, 0-1 ACC). Since dominating Marquette in mid-November, the Badgers have struggled to score.In last night’s game against the Wolfpack, the Badgers had another dismal 54-point performance. On the bright side, Wisconsin held the Wolfpack to just 69 points, 14.6 points below their season average of 83.6 points per game.Men’s Basketball: Micah Potter’s issues with NCAA shows inconsistencies in systemThe 2019 University of Wisconsin men’s basketball team is off to a 3-1 start. While the team has had moderate Read…The issue is that the Badgers struggle to score more than 60 points a game, making it challenging to win games. The Badgers haven’t reached the 55-point mark in any of their last three losses. Wisconsin’s three-point shooting percentage has now dropped to below 30, as they are currently shooting 29.7% from beyond the arc.The Badgers have converted on 14 of their 76 three-point attempts in the past three games, highlighted by a 2-for-26 (7.7%) performance against New Mexico. In the three games prior to their slump, the Badgers shot 36-for-82 (44%) from beyond the three-point line.The road ahead does not get any easier for the Badgers either. Wisconsin will open up Big Ten play this Saturday against the red-hot Indiana Hoosiers. The Hoosiers are 8-0 on the season, defeating No. 17 Florida State on Tuesday night.Indiana has played all eight of their games this season at home and against arguably lesser opponents which might have something to do with why they are still unranked through the first four weeks of the season. But the Hoosiers did impress against the Seminoles, whom they beat in the ACC/Big Ten Challenge by a score of 80–64.Men’s Basketball: Wisconsin struggles in Legends Classic with losses to Richmond, New MexicoThe Wisconsin Badgers (4-3) saw their four-game win streak come to a screeching halt this weekend at the Legends Classic Read…Similar to NC State, Indiana favors the offensive side of the ball, putting up big scoring numbers on a nightly basis. The Hoosiers are putting up 85.6 points per game with a winning margin of 22 points per game. In contrast, the Badgers are only scoring 66.5 points per game, something they’ll need to address if they want a chance at beating the Hoosiers.Indiana will be facing their first true road test of the season when they come to the Kohl Center this Saturday afternoon. Tipoff is set for 3:30 p.m., and you can catch the action on the Big Ten Network or listen live with the Badger Radio Network.
