HFWCNY’s 20th Anniversary
2023 marks The Health Foundation for Western & Central New York (HFWCNY) reaching its 20th anniversary. Recently, I had the honor of attending a celebratory event in Buffalo. It was an exceptional occasion that brought together numerous Health Leadership Fellows (including 2 members of my team) and influential individuals who have played a vital role in supporting the foundation. This gathering truly displayed the remarkable achievements of HFWCNY. I would like to take this moment to acknowledge and express my deep appreciation to HFWCNY for their unwavering support to STHCS over the years. Their enduring commitment and assistance have been incredibly valuable, contributing significantly to the growth and success of our organization. We are grateful for their partnership and collaborative efforts.
Annual EMS Skills
During the past few weeks, Alicia, Maryam, and Jillian have been working diligently alongside our EMS providers. Their goal has been to fulfill the clinical skills requirement by demonstrating their competency under the guidance of a WREMAC-approved preceptor. This crucial requirement ensures that EMS providers maintain the necessary skills to provide safe emergency care. Today is the deadline for submitting these skills, and I'm pleased to announce that we have achieved 100% compliance from all agencies in Allegany, Cattaraugus, and Chautauqua Counties. I want to express my gratitude to all the agencies for their cooperation and use of Collabornation (our new LMS system) for submission this year. Their collective effort in this process ensures the delivery of high-quality prehospital care in our community.
