Additional CIMC employees will partner with the Disaster Coordinator as part of CIMC inter- nal response team. These will be the "go-to people" for the hospital who share responsibilities, know how everything works and have the knowledge, experience, proto- cols and paperwork necessary to lead and manage Avalon's needs in the case of a large scale emer- gency. "I got so fired up hearing about the experiences of other hospi- tals" Janet confessed. "Everybody approached me and wanted to talk about visiting the island but ended up sharing their own experiences with disaster preparedness." A smart phone "app" devel- oped by the California Hospital Association assisted conference attendees with background infor- mation and provided copies of the panel and keynote speakers' pre- sentations. The information gener- ated remains available and will be a valuable resource for CIMC and the strategic planning and coali- tion development that is taking place on the island. CIMC congratulates and acknowledges the job Janet Seebert, disaster coordinator, is doing to serve the needs of the community and assist the hospital in its vital role as a pivotal partner in the event of a large scale disaster. Catalina Island Medical Center is committed to providing qual- ity healthcare to each individual and improve the overall health of our community.

The visitor count exceeded the half-million mark in July.

At the time, Catalina Island Chamber figures reported that visitor driven revenues to the city have increased 15.5 Percent for the year-to-date.
