Donors Benefit Courtyard


The skilled nursing residents, family, visitors and employees of Mayers Memorial Hospital District have a beautiful Courtyard Patio thanks to the efforts of many generous donors. Over the past few years various funds have been designated for the courtyard project.  Most recently the addition of beautiful new patio furniture made the courtyard complete.

The project was supported by many individuals and organizations. Donations were made in memory of Pam Brown for handmade wooden benches by Willie’s Wood Creations. Residents of the Skilled Nursing Facility had a yard sale to raise funds and the Mountain Cruisers Car Club also donated to the project.

Community member Sharon McCulley donated items to the Lucky Finds and Thrift Store where proceeds were earmarked for the courtyard project.  There were also a couple of past senior projects that designated funds and a project that built the water feature.

Darla Van Riet of Do It Best Valley Hardware also supported the project with a savings on the beautiful patio furniture.

We Are TEAM MAYERS


 
We are team Mayers and we’re here to say

We use our stethoscopes every day.


Hanging round our neck or loan it to a doc,

It’s a necessary tool ‘round the clock.


Many years it took and this stethoscope is earned

Care, compassion and dedication is in our heart, it’s not learned.


We use this tool to listen to your heart

But that my friend is only the start

 
Patient care is always our first,

That’s what we do, we’re called a nurse.

 

So sit back, lay down as we gather ‘round

To make sure you are safe and sound


To evaluate, dictate what treatment is best

For you are our patient, you need your rest

 
Don’t worry or try to have it all make sense

Just be rest assured with our stethoscopes this

Team of nurses is your first line of defense

 


 

With our stethoscopes on our neck, it should be clear;

We are Always Caring, Always Here.

Hospice Receives Donations


The Mayers Intermountain Hospice has recently been the beneficiary of funds from two local fundraisers. Members of the Norcal Road Gypsies presented the local Hospice group with a check for $2750 from proceeds raised at their annual car show.  The club hosted the event on July 19th at the Clearwater Lodge and once again chose Hospice as the recipient of the funds.  Additionally, Clearwater owner, Michelle Titus donated another $200.

Car club co-presidents Greg Gordon and Bob Eastburn said the 32 member club loves to support the great work that Hospice does in our community.  Gordon, who is employed by PG & E, has a $350 donation also coming to Hospice for his community service and time committed to the community project.

The Hospice also received a donation in the amount of $1435 from Burney Honorary Mayor winner Patty Williams.  Williams raised the funds during her mayoral race and chose Hospice as her charity. Williams said that Hospice is “an awesome sector that is often forgotten.” She said the work Hospice does with patients, families and friends is very important.
 
 

Mayers Intermountain Hospice provides a special kind of care and support. Hospice helps patients and their families with decision making, meeting life goals, enhancing family relationships and promoting comfort.  The Hospice team is available 24/7 with dedicated on-call teams and Hospice trained volunteers.

Mayers Receives USDA Approval



USDA Loan Approval for Mayers

 

Mayers Memorial Hospital District (MMHD) received long awaited news last week from the USDA Rural Development Program. Administration at MMHD was informed that the USDA approved the newly submitted loan package to fund the expansion of the local healthcare facility.

MMHD submitted the new proposal at the beginning of the year after evaluating the original plan.  MMHD’s Board of Directors and Administration were conscience of the community’s needs while striving to be financially responsible. The new proposal reduced the project scale from $55,000,000 to $21,805,000.  The USDA state and federal offices are very supportive of the fully secured project.

Seismic retrofits and requirements were placed on the local hospital as a result of SB1953.  The facility must be compliant with patient care areas by January 1, 2020.  Major areas affected are the Emergency Room, Imaging Department and the Laboratory.

Legislation (AB1290) sponsored by Assemblyman Brian Dahle was signed recently and allows the district to use the Design-Build process. This process will provide a faster timeline and reduce the cost of the project.
