Something to Consider
Thursday, March 14th, 2013
Life is like a cup of hot chocolate
A group of graduates, well established in their careers, were talking at a reunion and decided to go visit their old university professor, now retired. During their visit, the conversation turned to complaints about stress in their work and lives. Offering his guests hot chocolate, the professor went into the kitchen and returned with a large pot of hot chocolate and an assortment of cups – porcelain, glass, crystal, some plain looking, some expensive, some exquisite – telling them to help themselves to the hot chocolate.
When they all had a cup of hot chocolate in hand, the professor said: “Notice that all the nice looking, expensive cups were taken, leaving behind the plain and cheap ones. While it is normal for you to want only the best for yourselves, that is the source of your problems and stress. The cup that you’re drinking from adds nothing to the quality of the hot chocolate. In most cases it is just more expensive and in some cases even hides what we drink. What all of you really wanted was hot chocolate, not the cup; but you consciously went for the best cups… And then you began eyeing each other’s cups.
Now consider this: Life is the hot chocolate; your job, money and position in society are the cups. They are just tools to hold and contain life. The cup you have does not define, nor change the quality of life you have. Sometimes, by concentrating only on the cup, we fail to enjoy the hot chocolate God has provided us. God makes the hot chocolate, man chooses the cups. The happiest people don’t have the best of everything. They just make the best of everything that they have. Live simply. Love generously. Care deeply. Speak kindly. And enjoy your hot chocolate.
Parkview embraces the DAISY Awards for Nursing Excellence
Thursday, March 14th, 2013
Parkview has launched the DAISY Awards program at the hospital. The DAISY Award is an international program that rewards and celebrates the extraordinary clinical skills and compassionate care given by nurses every day. Parkview is proud to be a DAISY award partner and will recognize a Parkview nurse with this special honor twice a year. DAISY is an acronym for Diseases Attacking the Immune SYstem. The DAISY Foundation was established by the family of J. Patrick Barnes, who died of complications of the auto-immune disease Idiopathic Thrombocytopenia Purpura (ITP) at the age of 33. The family wanted to honor the nurses who helped to ease Pat’s discomfort and who offered him care and compassion.
So, do YOU know of a special nurse who embraces the following criteria:
*Compassionate and empathetic care provider
*Embodies the true meaning of nursing
*Goes above and beyond what is expected of him/her
*Treats his/her patients as if they were family members
*Leads by example; inspires others to care
*Listens to his/her patients with an open heart
Nurses at Parkview and within offices at the hospital, as well as nurses in Brunswick and Topsham who work at Central Maine Healthcare offices will be included in the DAISY program.
If you know a nurse who fits this description, please contact Niki Yeaton, RN, ED Nurse Manager at (207) 373-2383 or by email at email@example.com

Roland Bouchard Celebration of Life
Monday, August 27th, 2012
The Pastoral Care Office at Parkview Adventist Medical Center is holding a Celebration of Life for Parkview Volunteer Roland Bouchard who passed away last week.
The Celebration is Wednesday, August 29th at 1pm in the Wellness Confrence Room.
Roland J. Bouchard
Monday, August 27th, 2012
It is with great sadness that I share with you the following news:
Roland J. Bouchard, our dear friend and member of the Parkview
family, passed away today at 12:19pm from complications due
to lung cancer.
Roland wasn’t just our friend, he was a devoted volunteer and expert
grammarian who could challenge the best of us to write better, speak
better and always carry a smile on our faces. To say that Roland was
one of a kind is an egregious understatement. No one here at Parkview,
it seems, was exempt from Roland’s expectation for excellence, nor his
unbridled charm. When there was a need, just about any need for the
service of a volunteer, Roland was the first to show up and often the last
to leave. His commitment to Parkview, and that includes each and every
individual here at the hospital, was unparalleled. It can not be overstated
that Roland truly considered Parkview, this hospital, his home filled with
members of his precious family. He could not walk down the hallways,
any hallway here, without stopping and talking with our staff and employees….
you and me. He always had a joke or a kind word that he’d share, ALWAYS
with a twinkle in his eye!
Roland will be sorely missed around here; but he won’t ever be forgotten.
Three weeks ago we threw Roland a “We Love You, Roland” party, and boy,
did he light up at that! It was a surprise and I do believe I caught a tear rolling
down Roland’s cheek. He loved each and every minute of the attention, the
love, the hugs…did I mention the hugs? Roland was in his glory. We have
beautiful photos from that party to add to the photo album we gave him. Many
of you signed a book of memories; for those who didn’t get the chance, we will
make sure you can when we set up a table out in the hall sometime next week.
A very special THANK YOU goes out to everyone who helped care for, pray for,
or visit with Roland, particularly the past couple of weeks. I cannot tell you how important
that was to him. He absolutely FELT the love. But, an ENORMOUS
thank you goes out to Bob Murphy…Nurse Bob in the ED. Like he has been for the
past two years of Roland’s deteriorating health, Bob was with Roland today when
he left this world. Bob has been an amazing friend. The ULTIMATE friend to Roland.
So be sure to give Bob a hug or a pat on the back when you see him. We are indeed
a family here at Parkview and we need to continue to rally behind one another and carry
on in the tradition of the inimitable Roland J. Bouchard: try our best with a smile on our
We love you, Roland and hope to see you again! Tory Ryden

The State of Maine, like much of the country, is experiencing a higher than normal rate
of pertussis cases, also known as whooping cough. On Thursday, July 26th, Dr. Larry
Losey, Chief of Pediatrics at Parkview Adventist Medical Center, was interviewed by
WCSH News Reporter Vivien Leigh about the importance of vaccinating children against
Dr. Larry Losey
Dr. Losey told Leigh the most critical time to vaccinate children is when they are
babies, as their small bodies have difficulty fighting off the illness. Whooping cough is
identified by a trademark cough that grows worse over time and can last 6-10 weeks.
Losey says young babies are susceptible because the cough can be so intense, they may
not be able to catch their breath. Antiobiotics taken early in the illness can lessen the
The majority of cases have occurred in school aged children and teenagers. The upper
respiratory illness is highly contagious. Dr. Losey says anyone taking care of young
children should get a whooping cough booster shot.
Dr. Losey: Named Maine’s “Childhood Immunization Champion” for 2012 by
In Spring, 2012, the Centers for Disease Control honored 39 Physicians around the
US as “CDC Childhood Inmmunization Champions”. Dr. Losey was the ONLY
Maine Physician to receive this honor. Dr. Losey was cited for his tireless drive and
passion in pushing for lawmakers to ensure that every Maine child will receive full
In the late 1990s, when Maine’s funding for childhood immunization was in jeopardy,
Dr. Larry Losey, Chief of Pediatrics at Parkview Adventist Medical Center in Brunswick,
Maine, drew upon his prior experience working in private health insurance to create
and spearhead a unique funding mechanism to bridge the funding gap so that Maine’s
children could continue to receive recommended vaccines. For seven years, he diligently
led this effort that brought together the private and public sectors. In 2008, Dr. Losey
received the “Director’s Award, Maine Immunization Program” for this and his other
Dr. Losey has also worked to reach and educate more Americans about the importance
of childhood immunization. He has written newspaper articles to promote immunization
nationwide, and he helped launch the “Medical Minutes” radio program, which airs on
several top stations in Portland, ME. Dr. Losey’s segments on childhood immunizations
not only raise awareness among listeners in Maine, New Hampshire, and Vermont, they
also reach immunization-averse populations.
As a result of his dedication to the childhood immunization cause, Dr. Losey was
nominated by the governor to sit on the Maine Vaccine Board, the formation of which
was the first step toward creating a sustainable, universal, childhood immunization
system for the state.
For the extraordinary measures Dr. Losey has taken over 30+ years to ensure that every
child in Maine, from birth to age two, is protected from vaccine-preventable diseases,
CDC is proud to name him a Childhood Immunization Champion.
11th Annual Parkview Classic a HUGE Success!
Wednesday, July 18th, 2012
Parkview Classic Golf tournament, sponsored by the Friends of Parkview Adventist Medical Center Auxiliary on Tuesday, July 10th.
Nearly 100 golfers of all levels traversed the rolling 18-hole green, navigating water
hazards, sand traps and ‘forests’ on either side of the green. “What a fantastic day,”
remarked Randee Reynolds, interim President at PAMC. “The spirit here, the energy, it’s palpable. The sun’s out, everyone’s happy. This is a day to remember!!”
And, indeed it was. From the start, when Brunswick Pro A.J. Cavanagh welcomed
golfers and set out the rules for the Scramble, also known as best-ball, in which all
golfers in a foursome all hit from the tee and then from the best successive ‘lie’. WGME
News 13 Anchor Jeff Peterson, for the 5th straight year served as Emcee alongside his
former co-Anchor at WMTW Channel 8 Tory Ryden, who is now Director of Marketing,
Community Relations and Development at Parkview. “Jeff adds a really fun element to
the day! We are so fortunate that he is willing to lend us his talent, his humor and his
caring to Parkview,” Ryden commented. “We played together last year and this year.
We went home with trophies for 3rd place last year. This year? Not so lucky! But we
sure had a blast!”
“I love coming out to this event each year,” Peterson admitted. The weather was perfect,
the people were so friendly and the vegan options at lunch were delicious!” An important
detail for Peterson who became a Vegan in January. In the six months since, he has lost
more than 35 pounds and his bad cholesterol is at an all time low: “lower than when
I was a teenager!” He credits the Parkview program, ‘LifeStyle Choices’, for helping
to transform him. Peterson embraced the Vegan program when he chronicaled it for a
Healthy Life Style series he worked on for the February TV News Sweeps period on
WGME News 13. “Too bad this ‘new’ me didn’t walk off with a 1st place trophy this
year! There’s always next year!” Peterson quipped.
Friends of Parkview Auxiliary President Cheryl Monat reported the 2012 tournament a ‘big success’—on the financial end and the community end. “This event really rallies the Mid Coast community to come together, have fun and support an amazing hospital.
Parkview has been here for more than 53 years, serving the region in a way, a very special way that is unique to Parkview. The spirituality and caring that goes into treating the Parkview patient should be applauded!” Monat said. “The volunteers and Parkview
employees who, year in and year out, give selflessly in pulling off these golf tournaments are the stars. They are the big winners. I wish I could give each of them a 1st place trophy to take home with them!”
Parkview would like to thank all of the sponsors and golfers who turned out to make the
11th Annual Parkview Classic a day to remember!
