Two new ultrasound technicians now in Northern BC

Posted on by

first_imgFORT ST. JOHN, B.C. – Northern BC has two new ultrasound technicians thanks to an innovative new program created by Northern Health.The program is called Sonography Training at Rural Sites (STARS). This program saw the training of two x-ray technologists that are already currently employed by Northern Health and cross educating them into ultrasound technology.Prince Rupert, Fort Nelson and Dawson Creek are the locations that will see the work of the new technicians.- Advertisement -MLA for Peace River South, Mike Bernier, says it is great to have two more technicians come in and help.“This program is an example of some of the innovative solutions underway across the province to provide improved access to services such as ultrasound for patients living in rural communities. Adding two ultrasound techs to support northern B.C. residents will not only help increase access to this service, but enhance quality of care for the region.”Pat Pimm, MLA for Peace River North, also echoed Bernier’s comments.Advertisement “We’re proud to welcome the two new stars of the STARS program, providing enhanced training like ultrasound through cross-training has allowed our communities to benefit from skilled, committed employees who are a great asset to our health system.”Filling these two roles will help decrease wait times for those in the listed communities. The two techs agreed to stay in Northern BC for two years, in exchange for the cost of the program being covered.last_img read more

Steve Dilbeck: Dodgers’ vision seemingly unclear

Posted on by

first_img What does it say about the current plight of the organization that someone would actually turn down a chance to manage the Dodgers? How far has this organization fallen? Normally candidates would sell their first born for the opportunity to manage the Dodgers. But why would a hot, veteran managerial prospect want to manage this team? Exactly who are these Dodgers? When will they win again? They remain an organization in turmoil. They herald their promising minor leaguers, most at the Double-A level, while still trying to make noise about winning now. They tried that last year. That would be the team that went 71-91. Professional teams in Los Angeles do not rebuild, unless you’re the Clippers and make it your modus operandi. But the Dodgers are in trouble. They have owners who have been unable to convince the marketplace they are truly interested in winning. They cut payroll, reduce staff, sell more signage and then … fire the public relations director! What is the vision of this franchise? If you were going to be its next manager, that would be the first thing you’d need to know. Is there an answer? If you’re Valentine and several clubs end up interested in bringing you back to the major leagues to manage, do you want to gamble on the Dodgers being able to contend? At age 55? The Dodgers could use a manager with personality, who would be a definite presence in the clubhouse and dugout. Who might actually be able to sell a ticket or two. Who on DePodesta’s list would pique any fan interest? DePodesta won’t say exactly what qualifications he’s looking at, in what will clearly be the most important hire of his career; his future with the Dodgers will be determined by the success of this hire. DePodesta would not comment for this column. He is speaking only to the beat writers in occasional conference calls. He told them Tuesday: “We have an awful lot of attributes we’ll be looking at. As you go through that list (of candidates), they all share quite a few of those attributes. “It’s hard to say there is necessarily one thing (that ties them together). I certainly think there are some common attributes among all of them.” Asked to be more specific about the qualifications, he said: “There are too many to list. Our list is pretty lengthy. “I also don’t want to give too much away in terms of what it is we’re actually looking for, especially if we bring in additional candidates. It wouldn’t be fair to the earlier candidates to broadcast what we’re looking for.” Yes, by all means bring in more. Maybe he does talk to Valentine. Kirk Gibson and Orel Hershiser have been mentioned as possible candidates. Gibson has never been a manager, but certainly his fire would be intriguing. Gibson would do things his way, however, and the most suspected qualification for the opening is being able to do DePodesta’s bidding. Frank McCourt has said he will be actively involved in the hiring, which is curious, since he claimed to have nothing to do with Jim Tracy’s exit. It feels too much like a circus, and if the ring master knows what he wants next, it’s not apparent by his action. — Steve Dilbeck can be reached at (818) 713-3607. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong. Please try again.subscribeCongratulations! You’re all set! That does not speak to someone who knows what they want, the type of manager they desire at the helm. That does not sound like DePodesta, who, say what you want about his decisions, at least has always acted like a guy who knew exactly what he wanted. Yet if DePodesta really has identified what it is he’s looking for in the next Dodgers’ manager, it is not obvious in his crazy-quilt of a candidate list. All but Valentine have already received an interview. Valentine is currently managing in Japan’s championship series and has not officially been identified as a candidate, although you know Tommy Lasorda is pushing hard for him. Tuesday, Braves hitting coach Terry Pendleton, scheduled for an interview with DePodesta today, withdrew as a candidate. The Dodgers said it was because Pendleton wanted to remain in Atlanta with his family, although he oddly did interview with Tampa Bay on Monday. HOW about that Dodgers’ managerial search? All dazzled? All giddy at the prospects? center_img Let’s see, exactly what are they looking for? A veteran, proven manager like Bobby Valentine? An up-and-comer, but unknown like Giants bench Ron Wotus? Retreads Terry Collins and Alan Trammell? Successful minor league managers like Jerry Royster or Torey Lovullo? General manager Paul DePodesta’s search appears all over the map. last_img read more
