To Our Neighbors

President's letter.




The Santa Clarita Valley is a great place to live and work. We have many terrific outdoor recreation areas, as well as two major freeways to help meet our transportation demands.
Unfortunately, freeways and recreation areas are also locations for accidents; when they happen, it’s critical to have a top-flight trauma center close by. On Page 6, you can read about Henry Mayo’s Level II Trauma Center and take comfort in knowing it was recently recertified by the American College of Surgeons.

In this issue, you’ll read about PathPoint Project SEARCH, a special program we launched to help young adults who have developmental disabilities gain job and independent living skills. We recently celebrated our first graduating class of four, all of whom are now working here. It was one of the proudest moments of my career.

Speaking of celebrations, we recently marked the 15th anniversary of our Sheila R. Veloz Breast Center, which provides screening and diagnostic services to area residents. Staff members at the breast center, many of whom have been here since it opened its doors, look forward to providing these services for another 15 years, and beyond.

Best wishes for a healthy and happy holiday season.

Roger Seaver
