									Adirondack Medical Center
             2008 Annual Report

         A Message                   The mark of a nimble, effective, and flexible organization is its
                                 ability to forge ahead during times of turmoil, and to be useful to the
      from Chandler              individuals it serves.
                                     2008 was indeed a year of challenges, not only locally and
                                 nationally, but worldwide.
                                     Despite the loss of some of our most valued physicians to retire-
                                 ment, relocation, and one’s untimely passing, AMC has forged
                                 ahead strongly to establish a first-class physician recruiting program.
                                     In the pages that follow, we are pleased to share some of the
                                 new initiatives taking place at AMC. You would be hard-pressed on
                                 a national level to find a hospital and its medical staff more
                                 advanced in the area of Information Technology connectivity.
                                     And with the intense focus on federal health care reform, includ-
                                 ing bundling payments for a full episode of care covering hospital
                                 and post-hospital care, our nursing homes are becoming more criti-
             Chandler Ralph      cal to our health care system as well as our community.
            President & CEO          So as we renew our commitment to this community each year,
                                 we recognize the need for self renewal within the organization to
                                 remain vital, vibrant, and most importantly, remain a relevant ser-
                                 vant to the community.

                  VIce Chair     From the Chair ~ Emily L. Selleck
      Rev. Carlos J. Caguiat
                                      When I began practicing nursing in the early
        Secretary/Treasurer      1970s, nurses were easily recognized in their white
       John Hopkinson, PhD       uniforms, stockings, shoes, and caps. Each school
                                 of nursing had its own distinct cap; and each had
                                 its own unique pin received upon graduation.
             Julie D. Connors         Today, nurses and all AMC staff are recognized
               Jan F. Demers     more by their deeds and caring behaviors than their
        Susan M. Delahanty       dress. When they leave work - whether at the hospi-
      Jay S. Federman, M.D.      tal or the nursing homes or the health centers, our
                                 staff takes that caring back out into our communi-
        Edward H. Roetman        ties in many different ways. Some serve on boards
              Mary W. Sparks     of charitable or educational institutions; some on
             Stanley T. Urban    rescue squads, and many lend a hand to their fami-
                                 lies and neighbors in times of need.
                    Ex-officio        I recently found my nursing pin tucked away in
                                 a drawer at home. I turned it over to read its
     W. Roy Slaunwhite, M.D.     inscription, “Neighbors.” Here in our very special
        William J. Smith, M.D.   communities, we are all neighbors. And here at
          Chandler M. Ralph      Adirondack Medical Center, taking care of our
William M. Viscardo Jr., M.D.    neighbors is what we do best.

                                                                                     Executive Team

The Medical St af f is the foundation of any hospit al. AMC prides
it self on recruiting physicians and surgeons who desire to become
a part of the rich medical tradition upon which the community of
Saranac Lake was founded.

In many ways, health care is changing for the better.
In these dif ficult economic times, everyone is being
asked to do more with less. Implementing the latest
technology is just one of the ways in which AMC is
able to enhance the level of care being delivered to
the Tri-Lakes community.

                           and spiritual healing. It is a big responsibility and one that is
                           enthusiastically embraced by our caregivers, staff members,
                           physicians and trustees.

                           dents and many visitors of the Tri-Lakes would not be possible
                           without the dedication, commitment and financial support of
                           caring individuals just like you. Gifts and bequests to the

                                                                                                             Building in Tupper Lake.

    AMC is looking forward to completing a major investment in its health care
facilities in Tupper Lake.
    AMC-Mercy, our skilled nursing and rehabilitation facility in Tupper Lake, will
undergo extensive room renovations, plus the addition of renal dialysis stations,
the creation of a 10-bed rehabilitation unit, and the relocation of the outpa-
tient physical theryapy and rehabilitation department from the downtown
area to the AMC-Mercy facility.
    A new Medical Office Building is planned for construction across the street
from AMC-Mercy, and will house an expanded primary care health center, pri-
vate physician offices, as well as laboratory and medical imaging services.
    While a certain amount of the project cost is funded through financing
and grant awards, a vital portion of the funding comes from the generous sup-
port of community giving. AMC is grateful for not only the support from Tupper
Lake, but from those beyond the community who share in our mission of
Excellent Health Care, Close to Home.

at Adirondack Medical Center recognize the
challenges their patients and family face, and
are offering a Guided Imagery and Gentle
Restorative Yoga program to strengthen both
mind and body.
    “Strength for Healing” is being offered free to
patients, their family members and caregivers,
thanks to a generous grant from the Adirondack
Medical Center Foundation.
    Studies have shown these activities have
lead to improved physical fitness, lower levels of
stress, and increased feelings of relaxation and
well being. For our cancer patients and their
caregivers the potential benefits include relief of
anxiety and depression, stress reduction,
strengthening the immune system, reduced pain
and suffering and improved sleep.
