Attendees at the Healthiest Employers 2011 awards luncheon walk around the exhibitors area before the awards.
Five Sacramento-area companies won top honors at a luncheon Friday for theie employee health and wellness efforts. Rood & Dax Advanced Insurance Services Inc. of Sacramento won in the micro category (10 – 50 employees).
Dr. Richards Isaacs accepts a Healtiest Employers award on behalf of Kaiser Permanente Northern California. Kaiser won in the mega category (10, 000-plus employees). The health care nonprofit, which has made healthy living a central message in its advertising years, has had a wellness program since 2002.
Dr. Isaacs’ credentials, as seen in his web homepage, are not just impressive but awesome in many respects. For one, he not only has a specialization in Head and Neck Oncologic Surgery but also has wide grasp and experience in other medical fields, such as cancer (facial skin cancer, jaw tumor, laryngeal cancer, paranasal sinus cancer and thyroid cancer, to name a few) and has been involved in innovative medical care utilizing robotics and computer technology.
Such vast experience and expertise possessed by one physician should not come as a surprise from one who attended the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor as an undergraduate and finished with honors. Rich, for short, was born and raised in Detroit and took up his medical studies at Wayne State University School of Medicine in that city, graduating, as we would have expected, with honors.
Rich joined Kaiser Permanente in 1995 and he has Advanced Certification in Head and Neck Oncologic Surgery. His specialties include orbital, nasal, and maxillofacial surgery, as well as thyroid and parathyroid surgery. Additionally, Rich is trained in Facial Plastic and Reconstructive surgery and is also highly involved in post-tumor facial reanimation and facial reconstruction surgery. He is a Fellow of the American Academy of Otolaryngology-Head and Neck Surgery as well as of the American College of Surgeons. Rich has also published many articles in various publications.
As a leading whole orthopedic care provider, OC Orthopedic specialists consider each patient unique and work with them to understand their special needs and concerns. We treat the whole patient by getting to know them as we gather insights and information to help us select an appropriate course of treatment.
Kaiser Permanente’s South Sacramento Medical Center has been verified by the American College of Surgeons as a Level II trauma center.
The center got provisional verification by the group last year so it could begin operations, but the process requires reviewers to evaluate the program after it is up and running.
Reviewers conducted another on-site review in March to evaluate trauma center staff, equipment and other resources to make sure they meet national standards. Full verification will be in effect until 2013.
Since opening Aug. 1, the new South Sacramento trauma center has treated an average of 150 patients per month.
“We are extremely proud that the American College of Surgeons has verified that our program meets their stringent standards,” Dr. Richard Isaacs, physician-in-chief at Kaiser Permanente South Sacramento, said in a press release. “We have an excellent staff here and we are committed to caring for some of the area’s most critically injured patients.”
The South Sacramento hospital serves an area from Interstate 5 east to Rancho Cordova, and from Florin Road south to the San Joaquin County line.
The trauma center is a first for Kaiser Permanente nationwide.
In general, medicine is recognized as a very broad area of study and involves so many various fields of health-care as well as different approaches and applications, whether we are talking of traditional, alternative and even emotional-healing practices. Most people, however, rely on the general field of medical practice accepted by countries and societies as the scientific and professional field of health-care practiced by graduates of Schools of Medicine and are referred to as Doctors of Medicine (MD’s).
Today, the willingness or passion to provide people with physical healing is not fully applied or recognized without leaving the comfort of one’s world and into the greater arena of the vast majority of people who need healing and proper medical care. The worldwide web has significantly eased the problem of how to make health care readily accessible to others. And, obviously in medicine or the medical profession, as it is often referred to by those tasked with providing health care to the ailing patient, the patient must not only seek the doctor; the doctor must also make himself or herself available and accessible as much as possible.
The physician or MD, in general, needs to be fully equipped and qualified to offer basic health care using methods accepted by most public health-providers in accordance with modern professional health-care methods. However, we all know that even old traditional healing approaches, which have been proven by modern research to be effective and are administered by more and more doctors along with modern medical practices, for instance, acupuncture, chelation and others. Which means that we have advanced in such a way that we have greatly enhanced the human power to serve the health needs of many people who require effective medical attention. Likewise, those who are given the function of administering such highly-specialized expertise must have a source of surplus amounts of diligence, persistence and altruism not easily available to majority of people.
A primary model of this innovative professional medical practitioner is Dr. Richard Isaacs, MD, who has availed of the Internet to widely post his qualifications and his specialization to more people needing his particular field of practice. This direct way of promoting one’s profession to the greater community online may seem a bit unusual and even suspicious to many. Yes, it may even seem to demean the respected position the medical doctor whom many view as being more altruistic or unselfish than other professions.
However, that may have been true in former times when doctors plied their trade as mainly unrecognized or unappreciated employees of medical institutions or small-time family doctors running day clinics in distant towns. At present, however, doctors organize and put up poly-clinics offering alternatives to hospitals as diagnostic and medical-consultancy centers in many urban areas. Yes, gone are the days when doctors hang up front-door signs and worked as free-lance-private doctors for a small regular clientele within a neighborhood or a residential subdivision.
The increase in the number of doctors and medical-health practitioners has also altered the way medical services are administered or practiced, especially with the advent of increased medical specialization and use of advanced medical technology. Hence, a physician in some cases is not required to physically visit a patient in order to serve his or her needs which may not include surgery or delicate attention by a physician and which a nurse or a training physician can readily handle. And even in more serious cases where the physician is not available as long as there are other skilled health-givers who can take the place of the doctor without endangering the patient unduly. It is, in fact, not uncommon now for a patient to be in a hospital for a day or two without having seen a specialist, who may be unavailable, while providing the needed proper medical attention through other available doctors. The way medicine is practiced nowadays has evolved with the times and the demands of modern world, whether we understand it or not.
As such, having a doctor such as Dr. Richard “Rich” Isaacs post his qualifications and experiences online provides a refreshing view of the medical profession not only in its application but likewise in its accessibility to people who require it. Thanks to people such as Dr. Isaacs for opening an innovative alternative to looking for medical help minus the trouble of walking or asking around for the proper medical attention needed so direly. And often, in matters of life and death, time is of the essence.
Rich is trained in Facial Plastic and Reconstructive surgery and has wide experience in post-tumor facial reconstruction and facial reanimation surgery and has an Advanced Certification in Head and Neck Oncologic Surgery, specializing in orbital, nasal, and maxillofacial surgery, as well as thyroid and parathyroid surgery.
To get an appointment with Rich Isaacs, get his contact info on this website and dial away. Didn’t we say he is available and accessible? Yes, he is within reach to anyone needing his specialization in Sacramento, California where he resides and works.
Meir Ezra - Is making money your top goal? Is it your primary motivation? If so, you may get rich, but you may not be satisfied with life. You may not have a good marriage or happy family. You may not make any difference in the world.
In fact, if money is not your only motivation, you might get rich . . . and be happy!
There's a big difference between getting money just to have money, and earning money to finance a greater cause or create a bigger benefit. How does this work?
"Money is important in the world. But it is the grease on the machinery, not the motors."
"There is nothing wrong with having lots of money. There is everything wrong with having no money. But to work only for money is the dreariest thing there is, very short term indeed."
"The weakest motivation is money. People and businesses that are motivated only by money are wobbly people."
"The scale of motivation from the highest to the lowest is:
"Duty -- highest
"Money -- lowest" -- L. Ron Hubbard
Let's examine these four types of motivation.
You do not care if you do a good job or not, as long as you get the money. You believe that if some action gets you money, it's a good thing, no matter what is involved. Lying, cheating and stealing are okay in your mind, as long as the money comes to you.
When someone pretends to be motivated by a higher motivation, he or she fails. For example, a politician's duty is to support the people he or she represents. If instead, the politician is found to be using the position just to get money, that politician is kicked out of office.
However, a duty-motivated leader who works hard to accomplish that duty, has nothing to hide. His or her actions are consistently directed toward the purpose or duty. You can see statistical evidence of these accomplishments in terms of lives saved, people helped, children educated and so on.
The higher your motivation, the more energy you feel. You can work longer hours, do a better job and have more fun when you are motivated by a duty or personal conviction.
Make a list of your purposes that are greater than yourself. Which of these interest and excite you? How can you spend more time working on them?
If you think you are working just for money, take another look at your motivations. In many cases, you may find you are more motivated to make money for other reasons. These other reasons are your real motivations.
Focus on them and strengthen them and you will feel more motivated than ever!
