This is an all hospital edition. Reading news about Adventists regularly, it is clear that while many talk about outreach in church, it is really the medical institutions that define “Adventist” for many communities.
1. Shady Grove Adventist Announces New President—John Sackett most recently served as president and chief executive officer of Avista Adventist Hospital in Louisville, Co.
2. Adventist GlenOaks Hospital is the lead sponsor for a community breakfast highlighting the 62nd annual National Day of Prayer on May 2. David Sitler, pastor at the Glen Ellyn Seventh-day Adventist Church, will give the event’s keynote address. The theme of the 2013 National Day of Prayer is “Pray For America.”
3. Adventist Health hosts lab open house for staff, physicians, and the community. The lab was funded by a $75,000 grant in 2011 as part of the Adventist Health Corporate Innovation campaign and will provide staff an opportunity to practice mock codes, insert IVs, perform infusion procedures or check vital signs on three realistic adult mannequins.
Bonus: Skulls found near Loma Linda University were for medical research.
