Cardiovascular Disease Management:
A Case-Based Approach

October 5 & 6, 2017

Arizona Biltmore Hotel, Phoenix, Arizona
Program Director: Richard R. Heuser, MD, FACC
Chief of Cardiology
St. Luke’s Medical Center

This two-day continuing medical education symposium is centered on everyday care for patients with cardiovascular diseases. Cutting-edge technologies and advances in the treatment of cardiovascular disease from the medical, interventional, and lifestyle modification perspectives will be presented. Unlike most programs, this will be delivered as a case-based approach focusing on gauging and monitoring therapy, including recognizing symptoms, evaluating risk factors, guiding treatment through imaging, general and functional testing, and appropriate therapy.

Using data from the most recent evidence-based medicine studies, as well as new guidelines, the invited faculty will lead detailed discussions on statins, PCSK9 inhibitors, heart failure, PFO closure, peripheral vascular disease, hypertension, diabetes, wound care, TAVR, atrial fibrillation and more. The ultimate goal of the 2017 Cardiovascular Disease Management Symposium is to provide an overview of the optimal methods and management of the informed physician’s practice, and to discuss and debate the exciting options on the horizon.

Clinical cardiologists, primary care physicians, interventional cardiologists, cardiovascular surgeons, basic scientists, vascular medicine specialists, nurses, perfusionists, cath lab technicians, and other health care professionals with a special interest in the field of cardiovascular medicine are invited to attend the 5th Annual Symposium. Advanced registration is available online or by calling the reservations department at (800) 950-0086.

Additional IASIS Healthcare invited faculty include panelist Timothy Kieborz, DO from St. Luke’s Medical Center Wound Care Center and speaker Patricia E. Thorpe, MD, FSIR, Endovascular Surgeon at St Luke’s Medical Center.

FRANKLIN, Tenn.–(September 1, 2017)– Over the next two days 72 IASIS Healthcare workers from Arizona, Utah, Northeast Texas, and Colorado will be flying to Texas to give relief to their counterparts that have been caring for flood victims over the past week. IASIS has four hospitals in Southeast Texas, St. Joseph Medical Center and St. Joseph Medical Center in the Heights, located in Houston, The Medical Center of Southeast Texas located in Port Arthur, and The Medical Center of Southeast Texas-Victory Campus in Beaumont. All four facilities have remained open and operational during Hurricane Harvey and the catastrophic flooding that followed.

“We sent out a communication to our unaffected hospitals to see who would be willing to travel to our Southeast Texas hospitals and assist. Within a few hours we had 72 volunteers,” said Tedd Adair, Chief Clinical Officer for IASIS Healthcare. “We are enormously proud and grateful that so many of our IASIS team members were willing to go and support their fellow employees during these extremely trying times.”

When Hurricane Harvey swept into the region early Saturday, IASIS hospitals teams in the path of the storm were well prepared and remained operational when many other area hospitals had to either close or offer limited services. Hundreds of employees worked around the clock, not leaving the hospital for days, many not knowing if they had homes to return to. Their efforts have been truly heroic for the communities that they serve and now IASIS team members from across the country have a chance to support them as they provide care to so many in need.

While in Texas the medical teams plan to stay for a 10-day period, with many being housed in the hospitals where they are stationed. Some will fly into the Austin area and then travel by bus or van for up to 24 hours to reach their final destination.

Hundreds of IASIS Healthcare employees who live in Southeast Texas have suffered both personal loss and loss of homes and property. If you would like to help our employees affected by this disaster, please visit our IASIS Healthcare Foundation Hurricane Harvey Relief Fund online at iasishealthcare.com/texas-disaster-relief-fund/.

Jones brings more than 25 years of experience in the operating room to Tempe St. Luke’s Hospital. She joins the leadership team from Cormer Children’s Hospital at the University of Chicago, where she managed the children’s operating room, including four OR suites, one cardiac suite and two gastrointestinal procedure suite, in addition to a staff of 25.

Malcolm’s robust background in hospital operations comes from more than a decade of serving in administrative roles at major healthcare facilities in both Arizona and California. He has a keen understanding of the need to balance financial and operational performance with positive relationship building and has worked tirelessly to implement strategic plans that improved employee/physician satisfaction, financial performance, patient outcomes and service line growth.

No stranger to managing busy, in-demand operating rooms, Jones has been a part of the busiest hospital operating rooms in the Chicagoland area.

The three-time WNBA Champion Phoenix Mercury will host IASIS Healthcare Rock the Pink Night, the team’s annual initiative to awareness and funds for breast health, on Saturday, August 12, during their matchup with the Seattle Storm at Talking Stick Resort Arena.

PINK OUT! While the Mercury wear their pink jerseys on the floor, the lower-level seating bowl will be draped with 9,500 exclusive “Rock the Pink” shirts for a second-straight year thanks to IASIS Healthcare, creating the WNBA’s most striking visual for one of its signature platforms. Mercury mascot Scorch, the Mercury Hip Hop Squad, and in-arena DJ Dean will also rock the pink, and the concessions will feature a one-night-only pink drink—a strawberry lemonade margarita called “The Mercurita.”

UNIQUE FUNDRAISING

After the game, the Mercury will host a live auction of game-worn pink uniforms and one-of-a-kind memorabilia from players and coaches in attendance, including Diana Taurasi and Brittney Griner. During the game, fans can bid on pink shoes, basketballs and photos in a silent auction in the COURTyard brought to you by Verizon. Before the game, the Mercury will sell $2 pink luminaria bags in the Pavilion before the game where fans will have the opportunity to write special messages in honor of loved ones impacted by breast cancer. The luminarias will then be placed on the Fry’s Plaza in the shape of a large breast cancer ribbon that will be lit during halftime.

The Mercury will donate 100 percent of the proceeds from the postgame jersey auction, silent auction and luminaria drive to the American Cancer Society as part of IASIS Healthcare Rock the Pink Night.

REHMEE AND COCO

Mercury forward Cayla George, who owns and operates a candle and apparel company in her native Australia called Rehmee and Coco (https://www.rehmeeandcoco.com.au/), has created an exclusive pink Mercury-themed candle available only online and for each candle sold she will contribute $2 to the Mercury’s American Cancer Society donation. George also provided the small candles that will be used in the luminarias.

SURVIVORS

The Mercury will honor cancer survivors, battlers and medical professionals in attendance throughout the game, and will include survivors in pregame player introductions, the presentation of the court-sized American flag for the national anthem, and several other in-game contests.

Tickets to the Saturday, August 12, 2017 game available online.
