Freedom from Smoking to Be Offered by Norman Hospital

Norman Regional Hospital is offering Freedom from Smoking, a smoking cessation clinic designed by the American Lung Association which emphasizes the group process, taking out the element of quitting smoking alone. The seven-week program will begin with orientation sessions from 7:30 to 9 p.m. May 2 and from 1 to 2:30 p.m. May 3 at the hospital. At these free orientation meetings people will have an opportunity to ask questions, learn about the program, meet the instructors and decide if they want to sign up for the classes. The classes will begin one week later and continue for six week. The cost is $35. . .

- Dr. Robert G. Clouse, an Indiana minister and heart transplant recipient, and Albert Galloway, a minister and educations director for an organ procurement organization in Florida, will be featured speakers in a free symposium for clergy on organ and tissue donation and transplantation May 2 at Baptist Medical Center.

Realizing that clergy play an important role in the care of transplant patients, Baptist transplant surgeon Dimitri Novitsky suggested the seminar to inform clergy on the rapidly developing field of transplantation.

Sponsored by the Oklahoma Transplatation Institute and Department of Pastoral Care at Baptist, the symposium will include panel discussions, with participation by OTI surgeons, Baptist chaplains and local families who donated and received organs. . .

- Joseph Melendez, Piedmont, and Delores Kerns, Oklahoma City, have been honored at a service award banquet by Baptist Medical Center for 30 years of service. Melendez supervises 40 employees who work in maintenance at Baptist, on the grounds and in the hospital's heating and cooling plant. Karns is an executive secretary for the enterostomal therapy department. Six employees were honored for 25 years of service, nine for 20 years, 25 for 15 years, and 63 for 10 years. . .

- The American College of Surgeons Commission on Cancer has given approval to Deaconess Hospital's oncology program and ranked it among the most comprehensive community hospital programs in the nation. Among hospitals in the Oklahoma City area, only the University of Oklahoma Health Sciences Center is ranked in a higher category than Deaconess. During 1987, 416 cases of cancer were diagnosed at Deaconess.

For the past five years the hospital's tumor board, comprised of physicians involved in Deaconess' cancer program, has met weekly to present newly diagnosed cases and offer opinions on appropriate treatment methods. Oncology nurses, a tumor registrar and chaplain provide additonal input. . .

Friedel, administrative manager in the Department of Otorhinolaryngology in the OU College of Medicine, has been presented with the Regents' Award for Superior Staff at the University of Oklahoma Health Sciences Center in Oklahoma City.
