Staff Makes Patient Experience "Beautiful"

Ms. A

Martha Arabaciyan, 81, a Valencia resident fell and broke her hip earlier this year. She had hip replacement surgery a few days later and after a short stay in the hospital, entered Henry Mayo's Acute Rehabilitation Unit (ARU). Luckily for Martha, she spent less than three weeks in the Acute Rehabilitation Unit...and still can't get over how well she was treated.


"Everyone there in the Acute Rehabilitation Unit does their job with plenty of knowledge and they treated me with a human quality. It was a great experience meeting people with so much knowledge. They were good people and they treated me very well." said Martha.

directors, physicians, staff and volunteers for all of their efforts towards making these stellar accomplishments a reality.

This past year alone we have completed the construction of our new parking structure and life-saving helipad, completed a major implementation for Electronic Medical Records, completed a major surgical suite and operating room expansion, completed major renovations in our inpatient areas, launched a state-of-the art electrophysiology program, earned national accreditations for our imaging department, achieved the prestigious Baby-Friendly designation and was designated one of the Best Regional Hospitals in three specialties; Pulmonology, Neurology & Neurosurgery and Geriatrics by US News and World Report.... and these are just a few of our many accomplishments.


In the year to come, we will open our new Kim and Steven Ullman Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) and launch a comprehensive heart care program, in addition to numerous other remarkable achievements.


We look forward to another great year of working together to create the ideal healthcare environment that surpasses expectations.

Heart Care to Heart Cure
New Electrophysiology Program at Henry Mayo

Henry Mayo's new electrophysiology program debuted in November 2011, offering technologically advanced inpatient and outpatient diagnosis and treatment of abnormal heart rhythms, also known as cardiac arrhythmias. These disruptions can range from inconvenient to life threatening and, with this new program, Henry Mayo has the capability to treat, and even cure some of the most serious problems relating to the heart's electrical system.


Using state-of-the art 3-D heart mapping of the heart's chambers in real time, heart experts at Henry Mayo can now use minimally invasive techniques to test electrical conduction of the heart to diagnose and treat abnormal heart rhythms, also known as arrhythmias.  This technologically-advanced mapping helps identify exactly where in the heart the abnormality is occurring, providing the physician a precise location in which to take corrective action to provide potentially life-saving treatments.


"Electrophysiology is one of the best tools for diagnosing and treating heart arrhythmias," said Arby Nahapetian, MD cardiologist at Henry Mayo Newhall Memorial Hospital. "I am very pleased that our community hospital now has the ability to provide this critical heart care tool as it is vital to the success of our comprehensive heart care program."


The new electrophysiology program at Henry Mayo is the first step toward a comprehensive Heart Care program, which will launch in early 2012. The new program will provide state-of-the-art cardiac services and care, including open-heart surgery, balloon angioplasty, insertion of stents, and cardiac rehabilitation. 

Staff Makes Patient Experience "Beautiful"

Martha Arabaciyan, 81, a Valencia resident since 1995, on June 2 fell and broke her hip. She had hip replacement surgery on June 6 and two days later entered the Acute Rehabilitation Unit (ARU) for rehabilitation; she was there less than three weeks.


"Everyone there in the ARU does their job with plenty of knowledge and they treated me with a human quality. It was a great experience meeting people with so much knowledge. They were good people and they treated me very well.


Treating physical therapists included Terri Quanintance, Lori Senft; occupational therapists, Cindy Everson, Sara Aquin and Nicole Fayyaz. Her nursing team included Sukhi Rana RN, Veena Bali RN, Ken Skeens RN, and Terri Fraile.


Martha Arabaciyan was especially thankful that there was no pain-none during her entire hospital experience. She recently attended a Henry Mayo employee forum where she addressed staff, doctors and volunteers.


"Thank goodness there was no pain; they used a patch so there was no pain at all," she said. "I am doing great now, walking with a walker. I am doing better every day. I am perfectly well and it was a beautiful experience."
