Page 6 - The News - Friday, November 7, 2014 e e e How can we improve care for heart patients? That question was posed to cardiologists and cardiovascular surgeons more than 20 years ago when ETMC was planning to build its cardiovascular institute. Their answers helped ETMC build a new heart care wing that was better by design. Even today, it stands out from most other hospitals because the cardiovascular imaging services, cath lab, cardiac surgery suites and cardiovascular ICU are all located next to each other in one place, with one purpose: To make heart care better for the people of East Texas. "How is it better? Everyone is there at the same place, so we're not spread out over the hospital. If someone has a failed angioplasly, you don't have to take them down the hall, up the elevator and down another hall, doing CPR all the way. You just go from one room across to the next. it's fantastic; it's very differenL " - Stephen Phillips, MD, Carcliothoradc surgeon "It's extremely helpful, especially for sicker patients. The anesthesiologists, cardiac surgeons and cardiologists all work together- and that seems to be a better system. I think ETMC was way ahead of its time and built a heart hospital before it was cool." - Charles Lee, MD, Cardiothoradc surgeon "The e3 p F, OS o t 'ter seep ......... '* " ,, dd e 'd ith th' tt 'mtnd."- Robert Came]/, MD, "It gives you that extra margin of safely. EFMC was committed to building a first-rate institution that gave first-rate care." - Stephen Sigal, MD, Cardiologist "Tt's a concept that was a great idea 20 years ago when they thought of it, and it's still very applicable today. And you'll see a lot of programs emulating that concept." - Vivek Patel, MD, Cardiothoradc surgeon The ETMC Cardiovascular Institute: the region's first heart hospital at the heart of a regional program designed to save lives.

Trinidad Tales- -- By Emily Lundy Special to The News Coach McVey has long said Mt. Calm would be the nemesis for the Trojans to fight for district champion- ship. He proved to be right as Mt. Calm defeated Trin- idad 77-32 Friday night in Mt. Calm. The Trojans end the season with one loss and four wins. In another week, the playoffs will be- gin, and the Trojans will be included as the second win- ner of the most games. As this goes to press, voting goes on']ffTl:iia~d" for state leadership at dif- ferent levels and for three openings on the local city council with seven in the vying. Thanksgiving in Trin- idad :means programs at school and in various churches in the area. Re- membering those without enough food will be a project at some churches and with individuals. Rain is falling and more is looked for. We are thank- ful for any that comes this way. Coach Lisa Sawtelle will be starting girls' basketball practice soon. Much timing of future activities depends on progress of the Trojans in football. In small schools, many students have double duty, which is considered better than hav- ing to choose one activity to participate in because of large numbers of students. Someone was heard to say 11-man football was superior tO 6-man in mul- tiple ways. That is like say- lng city residents are bet- ter than country ones. Good or bad comes from any size town. In Trinidad, we watch our exes as some go be- yond any expectations, the same as those in larger schools. I know quite a few city people who at one time were country. I still love them. I've always chosen, with my husband, to stay small (not in physi- cal size). Lord, hear our prayers for Evelyn Beavers, Danny Beavers, Leslie Parker, Jennifer Stanfield, Bill Johnson, Claude Jackson, the Heickman family, James Looney, Garrett Airheart, the Jimmy Steele family, Beth Parker, the Colvins in Trinidad, Bethel Kelley, Charles McMurray, Betty Terry, Norman Lawler, Thomas Taaffe, Tom Lee, all our veterans and military young today, and anyone who should be on this list but is not be- cause of the writer's 'or l' /ck of fiotide:, ' We pause to remember on the imminent Veteran's Day all who have worn American military uni- forms. New veterans will be Eric Parker, Zade Mahasneh, Chelsea Tapley, Lauren Hebrank, Tyler Norris; Amber and hus- band (Ferguson) Scott, with new daughter, Mia, Megan Ferguson, the new aunt of this baby, Jonathan Crocker, and all others serving in war time as battles rage in too many places. Norvella Wallace died last week with services held last Saturday in Trinidad. She had been ill in the Cedar Creek Lake Nursing Home for several months and was dear to many families in the area for taking care of sick loved ones. We pray for her family. Barbara Ardoin's great- grandchild is well now and out of danger. Barbara plans to trav n the spring to see her older sister who is in her 90s. Avon Howard's birthday party in Corsicana was quite a celebration at her daughter's home on Wil- low Wood, Amy Venerable and family. Those attend- ing from the Trinidad area were the Gilbert Botts, Bar- bara Wier, Valerie Cooley, Billie Jackson, and Emily Lundy. Avon now lives in Longview with her hus- band, Bob.
