It currently comprises Cedars-Sinai (which includes Cedars-Sinai Medical Center and Cedars-Sinai Marina del Rey Hospital, as well as its network of physicians and medical offices throughout Southern California) and Torrance Memorial (which includes Torrance Memorial Medical Center, its network of physicians and medical offices throughout the South Bay).The Letter of Intent includes commitments for continued investment in Huntington Hospital—in enterprise information technology, ambulatory services and physician development. It resulted from a strategic review by a special committee of the Huntington Hospital Board of Directors, led by Chair Jaynie Studenmund.“I am delighted to announce this first step toward creating an affiliation between Cedars-Sinai Health System and Huntington Hospital that will further strengthen the communities we serve,” said Studenmund. “After reviewing a variety of alternatives, it became clear to our board that connecting our trusted brand of care to Cedars-Sinai Health System is the right choice to secure our future, enabling us to continue to provide high-quality care to the community for years to come.”Studenmund continued, “Cedars-Sinai Health System is among the nation’s top hospitals across a variety of metrics and has demonstrated a commitment to build on the strengths of its affiliates to advance clinical quality and outcomes, provide outstanding patient care and engage with the communities it serves. This step will allow for a continued focus on quality patient care, excellence in our nursing and medical staff, and the ongoing fulfillment of our historic mission for the benefit of our physicians, employees and the communities of the San Gabriel Valley.”“Huntington Hospital’s longstanding commitment to the community, its reputation for quality and its outstanding physicians, nurses and other staff make it a very good fit for Cedars-Sinai Health System,” said Vera Guerin, chair of the Cedars-Sinai Health System Board of Directors.“Collaborations and sharing of resources throughout the health system will further strengthen Huntington’s ability to serve the community for decades to come.”Huntington Hospital anticipates that the shared clinical expertise from affiliating with a system that includes one of the nation’s most esteemed academic and research medical centers—Cedars-Sinai Medical Center—will benefit its patients, physicians and allied clinical staff in many ways in the years ahead.The Letter of Intent sustains Huntington’s 128-year legacy and its connection to the communities it serves. It provides for an ongoing commitment to advancing Huntington’s existing mission and unique culture as a community institution governed by its local community board. In addition, philanthropy and volunteer support will remain locally controlled and utilized for Huntington Hospital and its existing community.For now, it remains business as usual at Huntington Hospital. There is currently no plan for a change in job positions based on the Letter of Intent.Dr. Lori Morgan, CEO of Huntington noted, “Cedars-Sinai Health System has demonstrated a commitment to build on the strengths of its affiliates to advance clinical quality and outcomes, provide outstanding patient care and engage with the communities it serves, making it the clear choice for Huntington and our stakeholders. We expect that Huntington would be both a strong contributor to this world-renowned, nonprofit system and enjoy the benefits of joining a larger, regional organization to preserve our legacy of compassionate, community-based care well into the future.”“The Huntington board, along with Lori Morgan and her colleagues, has a great vision for Huntington’s future, which will further strengthen an already outstanding institution for the benefit of the community,” said Thomas M. Priselac, Cedars-Sinai Health System president and CEO. “Being part of Cedars-Sinai Health System would help them achieve that vision, as well as enable collaborations with other health system members to increase access to high-quality care throughout the region.”With the Letter of Intent completed, Cedars-Sinai Health System and Huntington Hospital now begin work on a definitive agreement. Completing the affiliation is subject to customary closing conditions, including securing necessary regulatory approvals.About Cedars-Sinai Health SystemCedars-Sinai Health System was established in 2017 to bring together a collaborative network of high-quality healthcare institutions to share resources and expertise.

Fed Survey Finds Increased Optimism for Future Financial Prospects

first_imgSign up for DS News Daily Brian Honea’s writing and editing career spans nearly two decades across many forms of media. He served as sports editor for two suburban newspaper chains in the DFW area and has freelanced for such publications as the Yahoo! Contributor Network, Dallas Home Improvement magazine, and the Dallas Morning News. He has written four non-fiction sports books, the latest of which, The Life of Coach Chuck Curtis, was published by the TCU Press in December 2014. A lifelong Texan, Brian received his master’s degree from Amberton University in Garland. Individuals’ optimism regarding future financial prospects increased substantially from 2013 to 2014, while perceptions of current financial well-being improved only modestly, according to a survey conducted by the Federal Reserve released Wednesday.The Fed’s 2014 Survey of Household Economics and Decisionmaking, which was completed by about 5,800 individuals last fall to provide insight into various aspects of Americans’ personal finances such as economic security, banking, credit access and usage, housing, household debt (including education and student loan debt), savings, and preparedness for retirement.The survey found that 65 percent of adult respondents said they were either “doing okay” or “living comfortably” as far as their personal finance situation, which represented an increase of 3 percentage points from the survey the previous year. Meanwhile, the percentage of respondents who said they expect their income to be higher in the next year jumped from 21 percent in 2013 to 29 percent in the 2014 survey.”In general, the majority of the population is continuing to recover from the financial crisis and the effects it had on their personal finances and financial well-being,” the Fed wrote in the report.Despite the reasons for optimism, however, the Fed said the survey’s findings “highlight that economic challenges remain for a significant portion of the population.” The survey indicated that many Americans are not prepared for economic emergencies or for the future. Just more than half of survey respondents, 53 percent, said they would be able to cover an emergency expense costing $400 without borrowing money or selling something. Nearly one-third of respondents said they have done without some type of medical care they needed in the last year because they could not afford it. Also, 49 percent of part-time workers surveyed and 36 percent of all workers surveyed said they prefer to work more hours at the same rate of pay if they could.Further indicating a lack of financial preparedness, the survey found that 31 percent of non-retirees (almost a quarter of them over age 45) had no retirement savings or pension. Less than half of adults who said they were saving for retirement said they were “mostly” or “very” confident they could make the right investment decisions to manage the money they saved. Thirty-eight percent of respondents who were not retired said they had no plans to retire, and among households with an income of less than $40,000 per year, 55 percent of respondents said they have no plans to retire or plan to keep working as long as possible.Homeowners generally remained positive in their attitudes toward housing; 43 percent of respondents said they believe the value of their house increased in the last year, while 39 percent said they expect home values to rise in their neighborhood in the coming year. Many of the respondents who rent said they wanted to buy a home but could not due to financial barriers; about half said the inability to afford a down payment was the biggest barrier to homeownership, while about 31 percent said the inability to qualify for a mortgage was their main reason for renting.Also according to the survey, 23 percent of adult respondents said they had some form of education debt, though it was not exclusively student loan debt; 14 percent of those with education debt said that some of the debt was on credit cards.For complete survey results, click here. in Daily Dose, Featured, Market Studies, News May 27, 2015 1,032 Views Fed Survey Finds Increased Optimism for Future Financial Prospects The Best Markets For Residential Property Investors 2 days ago Data Provider Black Knight to Acquire Top of Mind 2 days ago Home / Daily Dose / Fed Survey Finds Increased Optimism for Future Financial Prospects Governmental Measures Target Expanded Access to Affordable Housing 2 days ago About Author: Brian Honea Consumer Optimism Federal Reserve Personal Finances 2015-05-27 Brian Honea  Print This Post Demand Propels Home Prices Upward 2 days agocenter_img Previous: Freddie Mac Prices Fourth Structured Credit-Risk Offering of 2015 Next: New VP of Enterprise Sales and Business Development Joins Altisource Servicers Navigate the Post-Pandemic World 2 days ago The Week Ahead: Nearing the Forbearance Exit 2 days ago Governmental Measures Target Expanded Access to Affordable Housing 2 days ago Share Save Demand Propels Home Prices Upward 2 days ago The Best Markets For Residential Property Investors 2 days ago Servicers Navigate the Post-Pandemic World 2 days ago Data Provider Black Knight to Acquire Top of Mind 2 days ago Related Articles Tagged with: Consumer Optimism Federal Reserve Personal Finances Subscribelast_img read more

Taylor adds second Governor’s Cup trophy to IMCA awards collection

first_imgMANDAN, N.D. (July 24-25) – Jeff Taylor added a second Governor’s Cup trophy to his collection on night two of the 25th annual special for Xtreme Motor Sports IMCA Modifieds at Dacotah Speed­way.Taylor pulled away from Jason Grimes and Robert Hellebust following a series of restarts, then checked out on the field after the last restart. His win was good for $1,600 and a spot on the bal­lot for the 2016 Fast Shafts All-Star Invitational.Jeremy Keller and Grimes battled for the lead early in the main event. Keller got the best of that battle while Hellebust passed Taylor for third.Taylor rallied to retake the position and quickly chased down Grimes in pursuit of second. On lap seven, Taylor blew by Grimes and two laps later passed Keller for the lead.While running second, Keller had mechanical problems and brought out the first caution as he limped back to the pits. A series of quick yellows failed to slow Taylor as he pulled away from Grimes and Hellebust on each occasion.On what proved to be the final restart of the night, Taylor quickly distanced himself from the pack while Hellebust tried to hold off Aaron Turnbull for third.Turnbull briefly got off the track on the backstretch which allowed Mike Hansen to pass him for fourth. As they took the white flag, Hansen got a flat right rear tire but a spin in turn one ended the race under caution.Race officials went back to the last completed lap, which made the final top five Taylor, Grimes, Hellebust, Turnbull and Hansen.IMCA Sunoco Stock Cars were new to the Governor’s Cup card and Bob Fuegmann was Friday’s $400 feature winner.

Celtics fondly recall Johnson

first_imgGARDENA – Four months after the death of team patriarch Red Auerbach, Larry Bird, Kevin McHale and Danny Ainge reunited in grief Friday to say good-bye to former Boston Celtics teammate Dennis Johnson. The trio of Celtics joined about 1,000 mourners who shared tears and laughter during Johnson’s 1 -hour funeral. “D.J. was a huge part of championship teams and was a guy that everybody liked,” McHale said. “He was a fun guy, and he had a personality that fit with us because we had a bunch of guys who enjoyed each other.” Johnson, who was coaching the Austin Toros of the NBA’s Development League, died of an apparent heart attack after practice last month. He was 52. “He was a great basketball player, a guy that was dedicated to the game, and he showed that by staying in it and going to the minor leagues to coach and try to move his way up,” Bird said. “It’s unfortunate because he had a lot of life left in him, but it’s just something that happened that we have no control over. He left a great legacy behind.” Several Toros players served as pallbearers for Johnson, a Compton native who was buried in Rancho Palos Verdes. Among the mourners at City of Refuge Church were former Lakers Michael Cooper and Norm Nixon, Clippers coach Mike Dunleavy and Phoenix Suns assistant Alvin Gentry, whom Johnson replaced as Clippers coach for the final 24 games of the 2002-03 season. Johnson was traded to the Celtics in 1983 and helped them win NBA titles in 1984 and ’86. he also helped Seattle to its only league championship. center_img “I was the one who benefited the most from D.J. coming to our team,” Ainge said. “I slept a lot better at night, knowing I wouldn’t have to be guarding Andrew Toney, Isiah Thomas and Michael Jordan.” Johnson spent four seasons as a Celtics assistant. A second-round pick from Pepperdine, MIAMI – Dwyane Wade had his dislocated left shoulder examined by specialist Dr. James Andrews, and Miami Heat coach Pat Riley said there’s no rush for a decision on whether season-ending surgery or rehabilitation is the best treatment. “It doesn’t make any difference,” Riley said. “We know he’s gone – four weeks, six weeks, the rest of the year.” There’s a chance Wade could return for the playoffs if he decides on rehabilitation. He sought a second opinion from Andrews after being examined earlier by team physician Dr. Harlan Selesnick. MINNEAPOLIS – The Utah Jazz waived veteran forward Alan Henderson, eight days after it acquired him in a trade with Philadelphia. The move was expected. Henderson never appeared in a game with the Jazz. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong. Please try again.subscribeCongratulations!

Eel River rivalry resumes as Fortuna and Ferndale meet in 51st annual Milk Can Game

first_imgBy Ryan [email protected] @sparksonsports on TwitterGames this early in the season rarely mean this much.The 51st annual Milk Can Game between the Fortuna Huskies and Ferndale Wildcats at 2 p.m. on Saturday at Ferndale High School is more likely to resemble a late-season playoff game than a contest in the third week of the season.

Cape Town shows off its 2010 spirit

first_img4 December 2009It was a party to rival New Year’s Eve in Cape Town on Friday as thousands of locals and tourists gathered in Long Street to celebrate the Final Draw for the 2010 Fifa World Cup™.With the African sun high in a perfect blue sky and Table Mountain watching on approvingly, crowds gathered in the early afternoon of 4 December 2009.Cape Town was showing off.It was a magnificent day and South Africa got its first real taste of what hosting the 2010 Fifa World Cup is all about. Sun kissed fans in summer dress were greeted by a kaleidoscope of flags covering every available inch of the building facades facing the road.A handful of top local artists drove the crowd to fever pitch long before the five massive big screens lining the street crossed live to hear the results of the Final Draw at 19h00.Miss Universe contestants swayed below the towering stage, rubbing shoulders with Cape Town locals to the live music.“I’ve never felt so proud to be South African,” said Miss South Africa Tatum Keshwar, looking down the street at a sea of screaming fans. “The future for South Africa is so bright it burns my eyes!”Cape Town local Simthembile Nkovu was one of the fans who’d endured the unrelenting sun since early afternoon to secure a spot at the front. He was there to hear South African group TKZee.As he hugged his vuvuzela and sipped slowly on bottled water, waiting for the band to start, he was optimistic for the coming draw. “It might be tough, but the cup will remain here in South Africa after the Fifa World Cup next year.”After an energetic set that had the crowd singing and jumping along TKZee’s frontman, Kabelo Mabalane was pumped.As he dragged himself from the stage he too felt the surge of pride. “I’m just so proud to be South African at the moment,” he said. “It’s great to play to a home crowd advantage. We know Bafana Bafana heard us wherever they are, and hopefully it spurred them on too.”As performers made way for the live cross to the draw at the Cape Town International Convention Centre, some of the crowd spun out into the bars and cafes lining the street to get a closer look. Others remained transfixed in the glow of the big-screens staggered up and down Long Street.The city’s bars certainly came to the party, many adopting international football teams, using the Long Street party to recruit potential revellers for 2010.Dutch expatriate Marcus Zandhuis commandeered popular Long Street night club Fiction. Partygoers in orange t-shirts lined the balcony and spilled into the buzzing street below.“We organised this as a Germany versus Holland party,” he confided, “with fans from both countries celebrating here in Cape Town. But the winner here was always going to be South Africa.”And then it was done. Every team was drawn against their opponents and Long Street could get back to the party. German Knut Muller, from Dortmund, a volunteer in a children’s home in one of Cape Town’s townships Khayelitsha, was amazed.All around him groups of locals sang and jumped, blasting their vuvuzelas with excitment. “If this is what’s happening in South Africa at only the Final Draw, I can’t imagine what the World Cup is going to be like,” he said.Source: 2010 Fifa World Cup South Africa Organising Committeelast_img read more
