Cardiac Staff Matters 26/09/16

1. The CSP Website Advisory Committee has been working on refreshing the website (www.cardiacsciences.mb.ca). Any suggestions for content changes or additions are welcome! Email the chair of the group, Kelly Lukaszewski, at klukaszewski@sbgh.mb.ca with your thoughts.

2. Help us welcome aboard the following new team members:

  • Kathryn Hurtig is joining the Nuclear Stress Lab at HSC! She starts her position as a full-time Cardiology Technologist on October 3rd.
  • Marcie Loszchuk has joined the team on CR 1 at SBH as a Surgical Office Assistant with UMG. She will support patient management for the Cardiac Surgeons.
  • Marie Alvaro has joined the Cardiac Clinic Team. Marie is a Unit Assistant and will be working within the Y2 and CR1 clinics at SBH.
3. Good luck to the Cardiology Technologist students who will write their Canadian Society of Cardiology Technologists registration examination this week!

4. Even though there are changes in the SBH Cardiac Access Office, you’ll be seeing some familiar faces . Barb Shearer has resigned her permanent position as of this week, but will continue to work with us on a casual basis. And welcome back to Bev Humphries, who is also returning to the Access Office on a casual basis. The Access Office must have a strange magnetic pull—we’re glad you both will be there!

5. Farewell to Abe Laureano, CRN in ICCS, who has accepted a position in another SBH department. His last day will be September 29. We’d like to thank him for his work in ICCS and wish him well in his new position.

6. The Cardiac Sciences Program wishes a fond farewell to Gladys Cadieux, Project Manager, who is retiring as of October 14. Gladys has played a key role in ensuring the program’s needs were met in a number of construction projects at SBH (Bergen Centre, ICCS, CSIU, ACU) as well as the introduction of technological and information systems that support the care of cardiac patients. Her retirement party will be held on October 6 at the King’s Head Pub—contact Lenore (204-235-3324) or Terri (204-258-1203) for more information or tickets.
