Healthy Recipe: The Marinade

This marinade recipe is frequently used at my own home. We call it ‘The Marinade’. When I put it together, I make a triple batch every time. Then I store it for up to two weeks in my fridge, in an airtight container such as an old sauce jar.

Final Graduate Leaves Champion Center

The final patient of the Champion Center successfully completed chemical dependency detoxification treatment and graduated from the facility on June 23. Champion Center opened in November 2014 and is located at 303 S. C St., the site of the former Lompoc Hospital. In its almost three years of operation, the Champion Center provided medical detox, residential treatment, and sober living components, as well as Outpatient Partial Hospitalization and intensive outpatient treatment for chemical dependency patients.

Why Risk Management is Important

Healthcare Risk Management is a proactive and responsive profession that works to deliver safe and trusted healthcare by saving lives, preventing errors and conserving financial resources.

During this week, LVMC is pleased to join the American Society for Healthcare Risk Management (ASHRM) in sharing some key messages about Risk Managers, their work and our efforts to deliver safe and trusted healthcare.

Keep it Cool this Summer

In the Lompoc Valley, residents are more apt to start worrying about high temperatures in the fall, when our area traditionally sees the mercury climb in September and October.

School is out now, Flower Festival is around the corner, and word comes that temperatures are expected to be on the rise in the next few days.

No June Gloom, for the time being at least.

LVMC Chief Executive Officer Jim Raggio will discuss and answer questions about recent surveys conducted at the hospital, including the successful Center for Improvement in Healthcare Quality (CIHQ) Triennial inspection, a state Department of Public Health validation survey that resulted in a determination of non-compliance and a state licensing division follow-up validation survey that found LVMC in substantial compliance.
