  • Two Community Health Center officials have been honored for their work creating patient-centered primary care clinics.
    The Oregon Primary Care Association honored the Community Health Center's Chief Operating Officer Lisa Hendricks and Nursing Director Ginger Scott with a leadership in transformation award. The award cites their use of data to improve patient care, communication training for staff and getting all employees involved in making changes.
    The association gave out awards at its annual meeting in April in Portland. It honored 13 professionals in five categories.
    Community Health Center serves low-income and under-insured people in Jackson County through a network of clinics in Medford, Ashland, White City and Butte Falls.
    The Jackson County Animal Shelter in Phoenix has received $10,000 from the American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals for equipment designed to improve the well-being of animals and increase the number of lost animals that are returned to their owners quickly.
    The money will buy one pet identification tag engraver and tags; three universal microchip scanners; 54 Kuranda dog beds; and one Woods Lamp for identification of ringworm.
    Barbara Talbert, Jackson County shelter manager, said in a press release that the microchip scanners will be used by officers in the field when they come across a lost dog with the hope they can immediately return it to its owner.
