Community Health Initiatives Earn Integris VHA Award


Integris Baptist Medical Center touched the lives of nearly 70,000 people through community health initiatives last year.

Those efforts were recognized when Integris Baptist received the VHA Leadership Award at a national conference of more than 2,400 health care professionals in Philadelphia recently.

It was one of eight health care organizations nationally to receive the award from VHA Inc., formerly known as Voluntary Hospital Association.

The award recognized Integris Baptist for improving performance in community health, clinical effectiveness, organizational management, and supply chain management.

"We are truly very honored and proud to be recognized for the work done by Integris in giving back to the community," said Stanley F. Hupfeld, chief executive officer of Integris Baptist.

Activities considered in the judging included the hospital's free community clinic, free health screenings, flu vaccination program, support groups such as the Calm Waters program for children who have lost a parent through divorce or death, and the community monthly newsletter Dimensions.

VHA Inc. is based in Irving, Texas, and represents more than 1,300 health care organizations, including 21 percent of the nation's community hospitals serving 26 percent of all patients.

Kevin Graves has been appointed vice president of operations for Integris Health in Oklahoma City.

He will be responsible for environmental services, engineering and maintenance, parking and security, food services, laboratory, radiology and pharmacy areas at Integris Baptist Medical Center and Integris Southwest Medical Center. He will maintain offices at both Oklahoma City Integris hospitals.

He previously served in a similar position at Tucson, Ariz., Medical Center.

The Integris Health Volunteer Leadership Award is scheduled to be presented to Stephen F. Young, Oberia Beasley and Roy W. Home at the Integris Circles of Excellence Awards and Recognition Dinner Tuesday at the Marriott Hotel.

Young is president of Oklahoma Electrical Supply Co. and chairman of the Foundation Associates, a volunteer group that works on behalf of Integris Baptist Medical Center.

Beasley has accumulated more than 8,000 volunteer hours in the gift shop at Integris Southwest Medical Center.

Home will receive the award on behalf of Integris Rural Hospitals. He is president of the Volunteer Auxiliary at Integris Bass Baptist Health Center in Enid. He served as chairman of the hospital's governing board in 1994 and 1995.

A support group meeting for families of children with type I diabetes is scheduled 10 a.m. to noon May 11 in the James L. Henry Auditorium at Integris Baptist Medical Center.

Dr. Michael Parra is scheduled to make a presentation on the psychosocial issues affecting families. Sick day management for the child with diabetes also will be discussed in the program presented by Dr. David Domek, pediatric endocrinologist at Integris Baptist Medical Center.

Other topics may include new treatments for diabetes, nutritional needs and emotional difficulties of coping with the disease.
