Dice Derby Event for St. Bernardine Medical Center Foundation

Dice & Derby will be a fun filled evening to support the extraordinary cause of developing the Neuro-Surgery Program at St. Bernardine Medical Center. There will be multiple casino games, lively horse races, and a select silent auction. The event takes place on Saturday, October 17, 2015 at the Martin A. Matich Sports Center at National Orange Show in the city of San Bernardino, California.

GoodFaith Non-Emergency Medical Transportation has been providing quality non-emergency medical transportation service for patients of St. Bernardine Medical Center for years. We hope to find more partners to support the creation of this cutting edge facility at SBMC.

The Neuro-Surgery Program at St. Bernardine Medical Center hopes to make upgrades to provide state-of-the-art care for the most complex stroke cases and become a Certified Comprehensive Stroke Center. One upgrade includes adding a biplane, which provides the patient and physician a unique way of looking at the brain through 3-D technology.

Dice & Derby will play a crucial role in raising the funds necessary to fully develop the Neuro-Surgery Program at St. Bernardine Medical Center.

“Stroke can be devastating, but the proper treatment program can make a tremendous difference for patients. The Joint Commission and the American Heart Association/American Stroke Association’s advanced certification program will help health care organizations focus on the care processes that produce the best outcomes for complex stroke cases and give Americans who suffer a stroke confidence that these health care organizations are committed to quality care,” says Jean Range, M.S., R.N., C.P.H.Q., executive director of Disease-Specific Care Certification, The Joint Commission.

GoodFaith Non-Emergency Medical Transportation often provides transport for stroke survivors to and from their medical appointments. Stroke survivors often need to see a lot of doctors and healthcare providers. Visits to neurologists, physical, occupational, and speech therapists, as well as their primary care provider and pharmacist are typical.

sbmc-300x172St. Bernardine Medical Center is already the regional leader in cardiac care; is one of the best in the state for total hip & knee replacements, hip fracture repairs, and spinal surgery; has received the Bariatric Surgery Center of Excellence award; and has recently renovated their Center for Imaging to add advanced technologies and services. The enhancement of this dynamic and technologically advanced Neuro-Surgery Program will provide more cutting edge performance at SBMC.
