Scripps Memorial Hospital La Jolla has been redesignated as a Comprehensive Stroke Center by The Joint Commission as part of the new Disease-Specific Care Advanced Certification Program for Comprehensive Stroke Centers, in collaboration with the American Heart Association.

The criteria for certification includes participation in research, access to advanced imaging, and performing a specified number of procedures, as well as treating a specific number of conditions at the center annually. The goal of this new higher level of certification is to recognize the significant differences in resources, staff and training that are necessary for the treatment of complex stroke patients.

5 things to know about caregiving and Alzheimer's disease:

1. Signs and symptoms. In its early stages, #Alzheimers may have very mild effects including short-term memory loss. Eventually, Alzheimer’s robs people of their ability to perform basic activities of day-to-day living.

2. Caring for someone with Alzheimer’s may become stressful, especially if there’s no professional caregiver helping with newfound needs.

3. Caregivers may become overwhelmed by stress. When caregivers learn to effectively manage their own stress, both they and the individual with Alzheimer’s benefit.

4. There are things caregivers can do to help manage the stress of their roles. Community organizations and hospitals can often help caregivers learn the skills and knowledge needed to help someone with Alzheimer’s, find in-home and day care services, obtain specialized medical care and get legal assistance.

5. If needed, seek out additional help through the Alzheimer’s Associations Caregiver Center or by calling the 24-hour helpline at 1-800-272-3900.

Patients who have been diagnosed with gastrointestinal (GI) and colorectal cancers often undergo aggressive treatments to treat their cancer.

But there is an alternative therapy. Proton therapy targets tumors, like GI and colorectal cancers, while sparing healthy tissue.

Over the weekend the first 100 patients were admitted to Prebys Cardiovascular Institute. The $456 million institute on the campus of Scripps Memorial Hospital La Jolla combines the latest diagnostic and treatment technology with special features such as natural light from floor-to-ceiling windows, a subdued color palette and 167 private rooms to create an atmosphere of well-being and healing.

Lydia Johnson was the first patient to be moved over to the new space. She made the trip only two days after her quadruple coronary artery bypass surgery. 

Her favorite part of the new building? The expansive window looking out over a verdant landscape of hills and distant mountains.

“It’s fantastic,” said Johnson, who describes herself as an avid hiker. “It lets in a lot of light. I’m an outdoors person, so the outside means a lot to me.”
