Edison selects CIMC to receive $5,000 grant for its Specialty Care BY JUDY HIBBS Catalina Island Medical Center and Edison International recently announced that the Medical Center has been selected to receive an Edison International community grant in the amount of $5,000 for its Telemedicine: Specialty Care for Catalina Island Veterans and Geographically Isolated Patients program. Hospital CEO John Friel said: "This is great news, it represents the ongoing support CIMC enjoys from the Island's major employ- ers." Dawn Sampson, a licensed clinical social worker and CIMC's director of Social Services, pio- neered telemedicine on Catalina. "This fits us perfectly," she said. She is in conversation with the Veterans Administration regard- ing contracts with non-Veterans Administration facilities in rural areas. Sampson is providing infor- mation on the Medical Center's current telemedicine program, the center's telemed history, and ideas for working with the VA. A new CODEC high-resolu- tion camera and a smaller monitor will be purchased with the Edison grant money. The mechanism that moves the camera is broken on the hospital's current Tandberg unit. The existing equipment was purchased a decade ago and since that time innovative technical advances and better features can now improve images, data and teleconnectivity. The Edison money will assist the Medical Center to better serve its patients, which is great news for Catalina residents and visitors. For information on telemedicine appointments at CIMC, call 310- 510-0096.
