               Hugh Chatham Memorial Hospital   by Stephen Pennington
                                                Hugh Chatham Memorial Hospital has launched a progressive program of inpatient

              Hospitalist                       care served by a relatively new physician specialty called hospitalist. Specializing in
                                                the management of hospitalized patients, a hospitalist takes over for a primary care
              Program                           physician when it comes time to admit a patient. The hospitalist then cares for the
                                                patient while he or she remains in the hospital.

                                                Patients and Primary Care Physicians Both Benefit
                                                Hugh Chatham has begun this program because it offers many benefits to patients and
                                                to our outstanding primary care and internal medicine physicians. For example, in the
                                                largest hospitalist study to date, the Tufts University School of Medicine found that
                                                hospital stays are a half-day shorter if managed by a hospitalist, with mortality and
                                                readmission risks comparable to those of family physicians or general internists.

                                                In addition, proponents of the program say that doctors who practice at the hospital

                                                improving patient safety and outcomes.

                                                Initially, the trend was driven by hospitals and manage-care groups, seeking to cut
                                                costs and improve care quality. But with hospital reimbursement rates failing to keep

                  Hugh Chatham
                  HCMH joined 96 North Carolina
                  hospitals as a tobacco-free campus
                  in January ’08.

                  “With years of documented evidence
                  of tobacco’s impact on the health of our
                  citizens, we take this initiative as a
                  regional health care role model,” said
                  CEO Stephen Pennington.

                  To help the organization’s employees,
                  patients and visitors achieve this
                  goal, communication is of utmost
                  importance. The signage shown above
                  has been placed in all areas of the
                  facilities. Smoking cessation classes, as
                  well as nicotine replacement products,
                  are offered to employees through the
                  hospital’s Wellness at Work program.

                  Hugh Chatham has been “smoke free”
                  indoors since the late 1990’s. This
                  tobacco-free policy prohibits the use of
                  any form of tobacco anywhere on the
                  properties of the hospital, Nursing
                  Center, Retirement Center, Home
                  Health and physician practices.
                  “This initiative takes the final step in
                  ensuring the health of our customers
                  and employees,” noted Pennington.
                  “We strive to remain on the forefront
                  of health care through customer service,
                  quality and technology – becoming
                  tobacco-free is a part of that forefront.”

                                                  Chatham doctors were treated to a dinner at Elkin Creek Vineyard. In addition to the
                                                  exquisite fare presented by The Kitchen at Elkin Creek, physicians and their spouses were
                                                  entertained with ‘Drs. Day Oscars’. Voted on by hospital staff members, doctors were
                                                  awarded titles such as “Dr. Punctuality” and “Most Dapper Doc”. The five-course meal
                                                  included Elkin Creek culinary specialties such as She Crab Soup and Bananas Foster.
                                                  The hospital provided baby sitting services for children of the physicians. They made
                                                  cookies, crafts and played games while their parents enjoyed dinner. The 2008 HCMH
                                                  physician directory made its debut at each guests’ place setting, offering the doctors
                                                  first peek before the directory was released in the Elkin Tribune the following Monday.
                                                  Chief Executive Officer Stephen Pennington summed up the event as,
                                                  “a great time to recognize the dedication of our our excellent physicians.”

                                             Auxiliary Awards Luncheon

The Annual Hospital Auxiliary Luncheon was held during National Volunteer Week
on April 29th. The Honorable Ricky Bowman, District Attorney for Surry/Stokes
counties, spoke to the volunteer group on the importance of volunteering and giving
back. Mr. Bowman also spoke of a very special personal experience where both patient
and family were comforted by hospital staff and volunteers.

Over 150 attended the luncheon this year. Reverend Rebecca Maynard gave the
invocation and praised the work the volunteers at our hospital do. Volunteer
Coordinator Patricia Wagoner said the day could be summed up by calling it
“a wonderful time of fellowship and praise.”

Hugh Chatham Memorial Hospital is grateful to its volunteers for giving of themselves
to improve the lives of others. Congratulations to the following volunteers who are
receiving pins in recognition for accumulated service hours in 2008.

                             The Yadkin Valley Chamber of Commerce again sponsored the annual Yadkin Valley
                             Wine Auction held to benefit Hugh Chatham Memorial Hospital Foundation. This
                             year the event raised over $42,000, an increase of $1,800 over last year’s number. The
                             auction featured a draw down trip-for-two which was won by a local realtor, Martha
                             Swindell. Set on the eve of the Yadkin Valley Wine Festival, the auction was held on
                             Friday, May 16th, at the newly refurbished Holiday Inn Grand Ballroom.

                             The Chamber’s distinguished Rebel Good Award was given to Derrill Rice, owner of
                             Grassy Creek Vineyard and Winery. Established in 2003, this award is presented at

                             and closing the live auction by announcing the first and final lots. (bottom right photo)

                             Wines from more than thirty regional vineyards and wineries were available for tasting
                             and for auctioning at the event. Among other items donated were rare wines, trips,
                             jewelry, original art, furniture, clothing, fine dining, decorator items and many other
                             extraordinary gifts. The menu for the evening featured beef tenderloin, shrimp,
