To Our Neighbors

President's letter.




Spring has arrived. In our active community that means many of you will be spending time outdoors engaged in the wide range of activities available to us in the Santa Clarita Valley.
Outdoor recreation is great, except when you are hobbled by an injury or other physical challenge. Fortunately we have two physical therapy clinics staffed by highly skilled therapists who are dedicated to helping patients recover fully and quickly. On page 6 you’ll read about a new therapy we offer that helped a young soccer player get back on the field swiftly.

When a patient is experiencing heart attack symptoms, time is of the essence. On page 8 you’ll read about a new blood test at Henry Mayo that dramatically reduces the time it takes for physicians to determine if a patient has suffered a heart attack. With this new test, we can either start to provide treatment sooner than we could previously or, just as important, give a patient and his or her family peace of mind by ruling out a heart attack faster.

Speaking of speed, it seemed like just yesterday when we broke ground on our new patient tower. We’ll start serving patients in this beautiful new facility this summer. Stay tuned for more information about a community celebration. I hope to see you there!
