St. Francis Medical Center Foundation of Lynwood Annual Report FY13

  1. 1. ideas The Annual Report of St. Francis Medical Center Foundation into Fiscal Year 2013 July 1, 2012 - June 30, 2013 ac ion
  2. 2. Dear St. Francis Family, The St. Francis Medical Center Foundation was truly blessed in Fiscal Year 2013 in our commitment to supporting St. Francis Medical Center. Your support of our health care ministry continues to have a profound impact on our ability to care for our community. Thanks to your generosity, the St. Francis Medical Center Foundation raised an outstanding $7.3 million last year to support important life-saving technology, community outreach programs, and associate emergency assistance at St. Francis Medical Center. I also want to commend the Foundation’s Board of Trustees for embarking on an updated action plan to ensure Foundation Trustees, leadership and staff are strategically broadening community awareness, sharing our stories and connecting with our friends and supporters who want to partner with St. Francis in providing for the medical and social needs of Southeast Los Angeles residents. Additionally, we celebrated the many successes of Fiscal Year 2013 at our June Board meeting, where we had the opportunity to thank three long-time Foundation Trustees for their dedication as we welcomed them into the Chairman’s Circle. Victor Caballero, Will Weatherspoon, and Jeffery Rollert are tireless advocates, and we are grateful for their many years of service. I am so very proud of my outstanding Foundation team, our wonderful volunteers, and the Board of Trustees for all of their hard work and dedication in helping the Foundation continue to build trust, enthusiasm and engagement among our constituents. Our Mission is to carry on the tradition of the Daughters of Charity, who have been ministering to those in need since the 1600s. In doing so, we have expanded our circle of friends in FY13, bringing 535 new donors into the St. Francis Family! Mary Eileen “Dub” Drees Vice President of Development and CEO St. Francis Medical Center Foundation To every single one of you I would like to say “Thank you” for believing in our ministry and sustaining our work. We are blessed to have you in the St. Francis Family and are grateful for your support. Sincerely, Mary Eileen “Dub” Drees 2
  3. 3. Dear Friends: At St. Francis Medical Center, the Vincentian Values remain at the heart of everything we do. This past year has been no exception as the St. Francis Medical Center Foundation has renewed its commitment to lead and be innovators in the care we provide to the residents of Southeast Los Angeles. Through new strategic partnerships and pioneering programs and services, we continue to advance the health and wellness of our community. The last twelve months have been a robust representation of our donors’ and supporters’ engagement and participation, highlighted by some tremendous outcomes. This includes the Foundation’s celebration of its 15th Annual Eric Karros and Friends Golf Classic. At this event, we honored our long-time friend and supporter, Eric Karros, who was first introduced to the medical center back in 1997. Through Karros’ committed collaboration he has helped St. Francis raise over $4.1 million dollars to support vital capital projects and community health initiatives. St. Francis has also had the opportunity to welcome new strategic partnerships, including the collaboration between our health system’s Health Benefits Resource Centers and Covered California. Aptly named HealthFirst!, this joint effort ensures that community members from the Bay Area to Los Angeles County receive education about the Affordable Care Act so that they can make informed decisions about health insurance for themselves and their families. We also continue to be blessed by the generous support of our associates and physicians through the WINGS (When In Need Giving Saves) Program. WINGS assists members of the SFMC family in times of personal hardship, and whether it is providing bereavement support to associates who have lost a loved one, or supplying tools, soil, and seed for our Associate Organic Garden, WINGS continues to grow every day, offering a compassionate helping hand and renewal of spirit. I look forward to a bright future and to our ongoing commitment to sustain and revitalize mission-focused programs and services. I offer my thanks to you for supporting these ministries and to our associates and physicians for embodying our Vincentian Values through their dedicated service. Together, we are empowering individuals and families with the care, education, and resources they need to attain health and wholeness. Gerald T. Kozai, Pharm.D. President and CEO St. Francis Medical Center Sincerely, Gerald T. Kozai, Pharm.D. 3
  4. 4. Highlights at a Glance Advocacy for the Poor The Vincentian Values are central to Compassionate Service Respect Holiday Toy Drive Volunteer- Diane Castillo Hundreds of Los Angeles children had smiles on their faces this holiday season, thanks in part to the Foundation’s annual toy drive. This past year, the St. Francis Medical Center Foundation collected toys for kids of all ages — 2,100 in all — from associates, Board of Trustees, donors and the community at-large. In addition, we provided gifts for parents and gift cards to Target and Food 4 Less, ensuring that 250 families in need could sit down to a hot, nutritious meal on Christmas Day. 4 Voyager Transporter The tiniest and most vulnerable of St. Francis Medical Center’s patients — critically ill newborns — were the beneficiaries of a $75,000 donation offered jointly last December by the Variety Children’s Charity and The Will Rogers Institute. The donation supported the purchase of a new Voyager Transporter — a hightech incubator on wheels — which allows at-risk newborns to be moved between departments in the safest manner possible with minimal discomfort and distress to baby – and parents, too. The incubator is just one more example of St. Francis’ commitment to using the latest medical technology to nurture and protect everyone in its community — from the youngest to the eldest. St. Francis Medical Center Foundation recognized the contributions of Diane Castillo, a volunteer in the Telecommunications Department since 2010. Diane is a student at Santa Fe High School and hopes to become a Healthcare Administrator. In honor of her work and her commitment to serving those less fortunate than herself, St. Francis Medical Center Foundation awarded Diane a $500 scholarship to pursue her college studies.
  5. 5. everything we do at St. Francis to foster healthy children and families. Simplicity Firebaugh High School Button Club A group of young ladies from Firebaugh High School visited the Women’s Imaging Department at St. Francis Medical Center. The women presented a check to the hospital for more than $500, money they raised amongst their peers to promote breast cancer awareness, including the importance of early prevention and screening. Inventiveness to Infinity Community Wellness Physician Continuing Education This year St. Francis Medical Center’s Vida Sana community fitness program got a $40,000 “leg up” from the Aetna Foundation. The generous donation allows St. Francis to build on its success with a campaign that will offer free exercise classes, nutrition education and biometric health screenings for 1,000 individuals and families throughout South Central and Southeast Los Angeles — a community with some of the highest obesity rates in the county. Vida Sana (Spanish for “Healthy Life”) was founded in 2004 as a collaborative initiative between St. Francis and a host of local churches and community centers with the goal of providing culturally sensitive and appropriate wellness programs in community settings. Vida Sana aims to motivate the community to establish healthier lifestyles by tackling issues such as heart health; diabetes; obesity awareness, prevention and education; and by offering classes on diet and nutrition classes; stress reduction; and physical fitness. Aetna’s donation will be used specifically to expand Vida Sana’s role in the community, encouraging healthy lifestyles, supporting good health and preventing disease. Among other things, the funds will allow Vida Sana to enroll more participants and train volunteers to become certified fitness instructors. Illustrating its dedication to patients and physicians alike, St. Francis Medical Center partnered with the American College of Physician Executives (ACPE) to hold an intensive, three-day leadership conference for St. Francis physicians in leadership positions. Offering a pair of courses created specifically to meet the needs of physician leadership, the first portion of the conference focused on “Managing Physician Performance” and examined individual and group dynamics in the work environment. The second component of the conference focused on “Quality in an Era of Change” and how, as health administrators, our physicians could continue to improve the patient experience by defining, measuring and managing health outcomes. ACPE’s primary purpose is to support physicians in acquiring the skills and credentials they need to be effective leaders at all organizational levels and in all sectors of the health care industry. That purpose dovetails perfectly into St. Francis’ own passion to equip physicians with leadership and management skills through structured education programs. 5
  6. 6. hospitals after an ER visit or a hospitalization. But a rapidly growing number come to the HBRCs because they keep hearing of this new legislation, known by many only as “Obamacare,” and they have no idea how it will affect them. Lydia Ramirez, Director of Community Outreach Programs for the Daughters of Charity Ministry Services Corporation and Director of all five HBRCs says, “We’ve been talking about health care reform [with clients] for more than three years now.” Each year, literally tens of thousands of low-income, ethnically-diverse Californians from Los Angeles to the Bay Area turn to the HBRCs for help. alk into any of the five Health Benefits Resource Centers (HBRC) in the Daughters of Charity Health System (DCHS) and you can immediately feel the energy: the undercurrent of excitement in the air as anxiety turns to hope. Each year, tens of thousands of low-income, ethnically-diverse W 6 Californians from Los Angeles to the Bay Area turn to the HBRCs for help. Some come to their local HBRC in desperation when, for example, a child who has been diagnosed with diabetes needs an insurance program that can offset the mounting costs of care; some are experiencing food insecurity but are intimidated by the enrollment process for CalFresh (formerly food stamps); still others need legal assistance related to substandard housing – an advocate to compel recalcitrant landlords to address the insect infestation or mold that is causing repeated flare ups of a child’s asthma. Some heard about HBRC services through outreach or word-of-mouth, and some have been referred by DCHS The HBRCs were doing so much talking, in fact, that applying for a formal grant to educate the community about health care reform seemed like the logical next step. Accustomed to fielding questions and finding solutions, HBRC Enrollment Specialists were well-versed in the many facets of health care reform and their expertise was instrumental in Covered California’s decision to award SFMC a grant of $750,000 to implement HealthFirst!, an outreach and education project developed by DCHS to educate the community about the provisions of the Affordable Care Act, or Obamacare as it is informally known. As the lead applicant and program administrator for HealthFirst!, St. Francis Medical Center (SFMC) is coordinating services with four other DCHS hospitals — St. Vincent Medical Center (SVMC) in
  7. 7. Lydia Ramirez, Director of Community Outreach Programs, speaking to CNN Latino about the importance of education and outreach to the community on coverage options through Covered CA. Los Angeles, O’Connor Hospital (O’Connor) in San Jose, Seton Medical Center (Seton) in Daly City, and Saint Louise Regional Hospital (SLRH) in Gilroy — each of which is strategically located in areas where health disparities are pronounced and access to care is limited. These areas are home to disproportionately high numbers of uninsured residents. The HBRCs are natural springboards for the objectives of Covered California. The HBRCs possess the infrastructure, established community partnerships, and experience to help community members understand America’s new health mandate. “They know that they need to have insurance,” Ramirez says of the families she has personally worked with, “but they don’t know what that really means. They think this is a government program, they won’t be able to pick their physician, and the government will tell them where to go for care.” Ramirez says that when people see the list of qualified plans available, they are surprised to see top-tier companies that have operated in California for years. Those big names, according to Ramirez, help families feel more confident. “At the end of the day,” says Ramirez, “it’s all about peace of mind.” HealthFirst! provides support for Covered California exclusively through outreach and education activities. By the end of its first 18 months, HealthFirst! is expected to reach 99,338 California residents who are now eligible for health insurance benefits under provisions of the Affordable Care Act. The program prioritizes populations that are central to the success of Covered California, including Limited-English-Proficiency (LEP) and English-as-a-Second-Language (ESL) populations, mixed-immigration status households, low- to moderate-income families, and other culturally diverse populations. The geographic concentration of the proposed contacts is approximately 49,500 in Los Angeles County, 36,500 in Santa Clara County and 13,338 in San Mateo County. We anticipate that 54,636 contacts will be Spanish speakers, 37,748 will be English speakers, 3,974 will be Korean speakers, 1,490 will be Tagalog speakers and 1,490 will speak Vietnamese. The HBRCs have long used an evidencebased promotora model to overcome barriers to health care access via culturally sensitive health education and information. HealthFirst! capitalizes on this experience, using promotoras — community health workers recruited from, and representative of, the surrounding communities — to increase awareness and understanding, decrease barriers and motivate consumers to enroll in affordable coverage options. These cadres of promotoras have formed five mobile outreach teams — one for each hospital — that will establish the HBRCs as go-to resources for information and answers to questions related to health care reform. The HealthFirst! promotoras spend roughly 30 percent of their time conducting outreach in Covered CA promotoras distributing information and fielding general questions on Covered CA enrollment for individuals and small business owners. 7
  8. 8. Covered California (continued from previous page) the field—engaging residents where they live, work, play, worship and shop. They distribute Covered California collateral materials and collect contact information to generate leads for Covered California Enrollment Entities. Outreach Teams spend the remaining 70 percent of their time focused on providing education through one-on-one and smallgroup activities, delivering in-depth education based on Covered California messaging and materials. Small group activities are followed by detailed question and answer sessions, ensuring community residents get information tailored to their specific situations. Building on the extensive network of DCHS and HBRC partners, activities include presentations at town hall meetings, the Mexican Consulate, Chambers of Commerce, cultural groups, churches, synagogues, mosques, temples, childcare agencies, WIC offices, clinics, PTAs, unions, senior centers, food banks and community forums. In addition, the promotoras have established weekly meetings at local community venues in each of the target areas to enable residents to “drop in” for up-to-date information and so residents who have already been introduced to the message can bring additional family members to hear the presentation material and meet the promotoras themselves. “This consistency Rich Hines, Southern California Director of Small Business Health Options Program Sales, speaking at an event held at St. Francis for Southeast Los Angeles small business owners. 8 is an important step in furthering our trusting relationships that will compel residents to apply for coverage,” said Ramirez. ranks among the top 10 hospitals serving medically indigent populations in this country and is renowned as one of the best hospitals in Los Angeles.

SFMC is home to the original HBRC launched in 1998, where these activities converge. Partnering with a variety of agencies — including school districts; Los Angeles County Supervisors; local, state and national agencies and officials; churches; private schools; community clinics; health carebased agencies and clinicians — the flagship HBRC at SFMC served nearly 14,000 families in 2012. SFMC and its program partners propose to reach 99,338 individuals over 18 months. With a total budget of $750,000, it roughly equates to a cost of $7.54 per person. The program achieves these exceptionally cost effective results by using the existing network of HBRCs and program partners and the exceptional reputation of each hospital. HealthFirst! builds on the foundation of trust and community investment that the five Daughters of Charity hospitals have firmly established over the decades to promote awareness, motivate action and remind Californians from all walks of life to prioritize enrollment in health benefits – putting their health first. Joseph R.1 didn’t think he had to worry about insurance. Covered by his employer’s health plan, Joe took for granted that he could see a doctor whenever he needed to. Then Joe was laid off. A short time later Joe was diagnosed with a chronic condition. Too young for Medi-Cal and too healthy to qualify for disability, Joe could not qualify to purchase an individual health plan because of his pre-existing condition, which jeopardized his ability to buy the medication that kept his chronic condition in check. The Affordable Care Act will ensure that Joe—and others like him—are able to enroll in insurance programs. 1 Not his real name. 9
  10. 10. Eric Karros & Friends Annual Golf Tournament Celebrates 15 Years 10
  11. 11. “Golf,” said Mark Twain, “is a good Golf, walk spoiled.” The sold-out crowd at the latest E Karros & Friends Annual Golf Eric T Tournament would surely disagree, ju judging from all the smiles and la laughter coming from the course. F the 15th year in a row, Karros was For on hand to tee off in support of St. Fr Francis Medical Center. The tournament, w which drew 144 participants and raised $1 $165,000, was held at the Trump Na National Golf Course in Rancho Palos Ve Verdes on March 4th. The tournament was punctuated by a trib to Karros, who, along with every tribute other golfer who played that day, went home with an Eric Karros bobble-head commemorating his status as the Los Angeles Dodgers’ career home run leader. Karros himself, the embodiment of a “good sport,” took home both a bobble-head and a life-size cardboard cutout of a bobble-head; a gift, he explained, for his son. Since its inception, the Eric Karros & Friends Annual Golf Tournament has generated more than $4 million for SFMC’s programs. Typically earmarked for new equipment, expansion projects and community outreach, the tournament has provided $304,285 in support for SFMC’s Pediatrics Department, $688,264 for the Emergency Department, $1.174 million for the Catheterization Laboratory and $1.63 million for Community Health Initiatives working to improve health outcomes for the underserved. Karros enjoyed a stellar career with the Dodgers from 1991 to 2002. Winner of the 1995 Silver Slugger Award and the only player in Dodger history to hit two home runs in the same inning, Mr. Karros is an excellent sportsman and a humanitarian who has worked tirelessly in support of SFMC. The relationship between Karros and SFMC began when Karros went to Alexander Imports to purchase a new car. Nicholas Alexander, a dedicated Dodger fan, sold Karros a car and the two men struck up a friendship. A short time later, Alexander, an SFMC board member, joined a board committee charged with launching a golf tournament to raise funds for the hospital. Alexander reached out to Karros, and the ballplayer responded with a visit to the hospital’s Neonatal Intensive Care Unit, even holding one of the babies. He was smitten and agreed to host the tournament. Proceeds from the inaugural tournament benefited SFMC’s Pediatrics Department. Between Karros’ ongoing commitment and the tireless support of the Golf Committee Chairman Mark Aldrete, who has championed this event since its inception, the tournament has been an unabashed success year after year. Sponsored by AppleCare Medical Group, Inc., this year’s event included a long drive contest, lunch, silent and live auctions, awards, a visit from the Laker Girls and, of course, a beautiful round of golf. Participants competed for prizes that included a stay and play package at Trump National Golf Course, a trip to Puerto Vallarta and the grand prize, a trip to Pebble Beach. The golf tournament was followed by a reception, dinner and a speech by Gerald T. Kozai, SFMC’s President and CEO, acknowledging the long-time commitment and leadership of Mark Aldrete in making the event a success. Mr. Aldrete also addressed the crowd, thanking Eric Karros for his 15 years of service and telling the crowd how the tournament has benefited the underserved residents of Southeast Los Angeles. Mr. Karros’ ongoing work in broadcasting — he’s a color commentator and does pre-game shows for Dodger games — has kept him firmly in the public eye. Mr. Karros uses his prestige to help those less fortunate than himself, frequently participating in events that raise funds and awareness of the critical needs facing the 27 percent of Los Angeles County residents who, when housing costs and government benefits are taken into account, live below the Federal Poverty Level . Such support is invaluable to SFMC, which provided $26 million in traditional charity care and $66 million in total quantifiable benefits for persons living in poverty in 2013 alone. This year’s donations went to fund SFMC’s Community Outreach and Services which work to improve community health and well-being through outreach, education and prevention. The 16th Annual Eric Karros & Friends Golf Classic will be held in March 2014. While a date for the event has yet to be established, those interested in playing in the Golf Classic may contact Grace Mendez at (310) 900-7331 or to reserve space. 11
  12. 12. hen Johnny Velasco’s sister, Guadalupe, suddenly passed away this past March, his family was devastated. The Velasco Family had just celebrated her 51st birthday and felt it was a major milestone. “Doctors said she would probably not make it past her 50th birthday, so when she turned 51, we all rejoiced. She looked like she was improving and we prayed for her continued progress.” One night, however, Guadalupe went to bed and did not wake up the next morning. She had passed away quietly in the night. In the midst of their grief, the family also struggled to cope with mounting funeral expenses. W That was when Johnny remembered a program he had championed in 2001. As the former Chairman of WINGS (known at that time as the Associate Giving Campaign) Johnny had introduced the concept of an Associate Bereavement Fund. “When I first suggested … that Associate Emergency Funds include bereavement assistance, I never would have imagined I would need to access it. However, I was so appreciative that my St. Francis Family came together to provide burial assistance and emotional support to my family during our time of need.” Family photo of Johnny Velasco, Guadalupe (second from left), and their siblings when they attended the wedding of Guadalupe’s son in Illinois in 2012. 12 A group of St. Francis associates established the Associate Giving Campaign in 1990 to bring the Mission of the Daughters of Charity home by providing critical aid to hospital staff. Renamed WINGS (When In Need Giving Saves) in 2013 WINGS has evolved into a more structured program that allows associates to have a voice in what types of support they want to provide, ranging from the bereavement fund that supports associates following the death of a loved one, to various capital and wellness projects around the St. Francis Medical Center campus.
  13. 13. WINGS: When In Need Giving Saves WINGS will again petition associates in early spring to renew their support for the WINGS program. Associates can choose to donate as little as $5 per pay period, with some donating $20 or more per pay period. Even the smallest amount has a huge impact. “Every gift counts,” says Dub Drees, CEO of the St. Francis Medical Center Foundation, “because it all adds up!’” • The Associate Emergency Assistance Fund assisted 11 associates facing eviction, foreclosure and other unexpected financial hardships outside of their control. This past fiscal year, the WINGS Campaign exceeded expectations when it raised an estimated $60,000 from over 350 associates who were then able to choose from one of nine funds including: Associate Capital Projects for facility renovations to improve employee morale; the Associate Emergency Fund to assist associates with financial hardship; and the Vincentian Fund to provide resources to patients needing assistance with medical expenses. • The Associate Wellness Health and Fitness Program was developed to promote healthy lifestyle changes among our associates by providing onsite wellness classes, like Zumba and Eat Smart. • The CARE Channel was installed in January 2013 to provide meditative and guided imagery to create a more peaceful environment for patients and associates. • The SFMC Associate Community Garden was installed in 2012. Hospital departments are able to “adopt a box” and decide for themselves what they would like to plant and what they would like to do with their harvest. According to WINGS Coordinator Michelle Thomas, there are over $300,000 in the WINGS Fund. Thomas encourages associates to consider serving on the WINGS Committee to help lead decisions on how to use those funds to make further improvements to the environment at the hospital. Thomas also sees WINGS as being an important part of engagement building. “I enjoy the sense of camaraderie created by projects like the organic garden,” says Thomas. If you would like to learn more about how to get involved with the WINGS Campaign, please contact Michelle Thomas at (310) 900-7352 or RIGHT: SFMC departments were able to “adopt a box” to grow fresh, organic vegetables and build camaraderie among their colleagues. As a result of associate donations, WINGS accomplished the following highlights last year: • Associate Bereavement Fund assisted 12 St. Francis associates with burial services for their loved ones. These funds are also accessible to family members of deceased associates. RIGHT: An associate earned his wings at the In-n-Out kickoff event for associates and physicians on February 8, 2013.
