Message from the President, September 2017

Posted on Sep 12, 2017 in President's Message | 0 comments

Dear Medical Staff Colleagues,

Greetings. With the fires on the west coast and tumultuous storms wreaking havoc in Texas and Florida, these are unsettling times. I hope that your friends and family remain safe.

On the local front, these are highlights to look forward to this September:

– On September, 21, 2017 we will have a combined Fall Social event with Alta Bates Medical Staff. It will be held at the Lake Chalet in Oakland. I encourage you to attend since it is a low key social gathering and an opportunity to meet old friends and create new ones.

– The Fall Social serves a dual purpose; it is also the preview for the upcoming Combined Holiday Party on December 5th. The Annual Holiday Party will be the same location at the Lake Chalet but on a more grand magnitude. More information to come as we approach the event but, please save the date.

– Semi- annual Meet and Greet of new Medical Staff members of both Alta Bates and Summit Campuses will be on September 18th Noon , 11th floor Bayview Room. This is an opportunity for new medical staff to meet and ask questions of both administration and medical staff leadership.

Joint Commission is coming to our campus for a scheduled regulatory visit next week to assess our Orthopedic Total Joint Program.

Summit Medical Center has been a community leader in both our cardiovascular service line and our neurology stroke program. To that end, we have had a strong presence in the Annual American Heart Association Walk which raises funds to promote education, research and emergency care in the areas of stroke and cardiovascular conditions. Here is the link

The upcoming walk is in the San Ramon location, Bishop Ranch 8 on Sunday, October 8th. You can either donate, volunteer, or participate in the walk. For more information contact Leo Dominguez, Administrative Director of Professional/ CV and Neuro Svcs (510) 869-8364 or

There are team leaders representing many departments from the hospital. So please participate at any level you can.

Below please see the monthly report on our verbal order compliance rate, also the monthly note from the Wellness Committee by Dr John Mouratoff.

Stay safe and be well,


Donna D. Tigno, M.D.
President of Summit Medical Staff
Co-Director of Critical Care at Summit Medical Center
