Oceanside Rotary honors hometown surgeon Sarbak for humanitarianism

 

Sandra Lilo, DDS, pins John Sarbak, MD with the Paul Harris Fellow medal.

 

The Rotary Club of Vero Beach Oceanside presented hometown surgeon, John Sarbak, MD, with the Paul Harris Fellow award on behalf of Sandra Lilo, DDS, RotoCleft volunteer and member of Seminole Lakes Rotary Club, at their Sept. 13 meeting.

The Paul Harris Fellow recognizes individuals who make substantial contributions to Rotary and its foundation. Dr. Sarbak received the award for his annual work with RotoCleft, which is currently a part of and operated by the Rotary Club of Seminole Lake Foundation. 

RotoCleft organizes and funds a yearly surgical mission to provide free corrective surgery for children suffering from cleft lip and cleft palate deformities in the Quechuan Indian population in Peru; the area has a very high incidence of cleft palate deformities. This condition is associated with hearing loss, speech difficulty, ear infections, food intake and dental problems. A team of approximately 25 surgeons, anesthesiologist, nurses, non-medical volunteers and bi-lingual facilitators perform up to 35 surgical procedures in a three-day period. The team donates five days and the expense of the trip.  

Dr. Lilo stated, “Dr. Sarbak joined the RotoCleft team in 1999 as a resident and is an anchor for the team and patients. He gives his time and pays his own expenses so these kids can have a chance at life. His generosity and talent are a key reason we have been so successful in providing care to this underserved population.”

VNA receives 5-star rating for patient satisfaction from CMS (Center for Medicare and Medicaid Services)

VNA receives 5-Star rating for patient satisfaction from CMS (Center for Medicare and Medicaid Services)

For Indian River and Brevard County

 

VNA reported a 5-Star rating in patient satisfaction for the July Care Compare update.  The star ratings come from the patient experience of care survey, also called the Home Health Consumer Assessment of Healthcare Providers and Systems (HHCAHPS) survey.   
 
The HHCAHPS survey tool seeks to evaluate patients’ experiences with home health agencies (HHAs) using data from clients (or the family or friends of clients) that have been cared for by the agency. The HHCAHPS Survey star ratings report clients’ experiences of care ranging from one star to five stars. Five stars is the highest rating, reflecting the best client experience.  
 
“We are living our WHY? Statement and the patients are feeling optimal quality of life,” says VNA CEO Lundy Fields. “It’s the love and compassion we bring into every patient encounter.”   
 

Denise Clark, director of Clinical Services in Brevard County, concurs. “Our clinicians provide excellent care and excellent service – at the end of the day, it is all about the patient. Our VNA clinicians dedicate themselves to the care and treatment of their patients and promote wellness and healing,” she says.
