Emergency Dept. Named for Hollywood Couple
A generous donation from Judith and Robert Cornfeld and their family has been recognized with the naming of the emergency department at Memorial Regional Hospital (Hollywood) in their honor. The dedication ceremony was held on the couple's 60th wedding anniversary.

"Love and health are the two most important things in our lives," said Dr. Robert Cornfeld. "Judy and I believe there is no better way to honor our 60 years together than to give back to our local hospital, which has powerfully served our family and community for decades."
Plaza Health Network launches advanced respiratory care program at Arch Plaza  
As part of its ongoing mission to provide high quality, sub-acute care to adults and seniors in the South Florida community, Plaza Health Network has launched an advanced, inpatient respiratory care program that provides treatment, rehabilitation and education to patients with complex respiratory conditions. The program is available at Arch Plaza, located in North Miami, and will continue to roll out at the other six Plaza Health Network centers throughout Miami-Dade County over the course of 2018.

Patients with complex respiratory conditions -such as chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), pneumonia, lung disease and those who are ventilator or tracheostomy dependent- are cared for by respiratory therapists who coordinate with nursing and rehabilitation staff to provide enhanced and advanced pulmonary care. The team is also focused on the patient's continual care once they have transitioned from skilled nursing center to home by teaching them the necessary skills that would enable them to function independently, and avoid unnecessary hospital readmissions.
