Telestroke comes to Curry Health Network
July 24, 2010 05:00 am

Imagine receiving a face-to-face consultation with the top neurologist in the Northwest and having personal access to his or her supporting team of physicians and medical staff – without leaving Curry County.  

With Curry Health Network’s new telemedicine program, this is now possible. 

This new program allows highly trained medical-specialists to perform consultations and examinations on patients in remote hospitals via an interactive audiovisual system. A television-type screen enables doctors in Portland and patients at Curry General Hospital to see and hear each other in real-time, allowing doctors to perform critical diagnosis via satellite.

Judy Tygart is given a farewell hug by Doug Nidiffer, C&K Markets president.

Fellow employees, friends, family, and customers gathered at Ray’s Food Place on Chetco Avenue June 17 to honor Judy Tygart who is retiring after 28 years of serving customers.

It was a happy occasion, but fellow employees and her faithful clients all expressed a bit of sadness, some even with tears in their eyes, because Tygart will no longer be there to make the day a bit brighter with her smiling assistance.

“You’re gonna’ be missed” was a constant refrain as celebrants accepted cake and apple juice being served by Tracy Saban and Ann Schreffler.

“It’s been awesome,” Tygart said about her many years working for C&K Markets. “I’m gonna miss it, I’m sure. It took me two years to make the decision. I kept putting it off.”

  • Facebook says SEC's IPO probe ends, extending WhatsApp closing date
    In its quarterly report filed on Thursday, Facebook said the regulator in May "notified us that it had terminated its inquiry and that no enforcement action had been recommended by the SEC." Facebook shares began trading on May 18, 2012, but soon fell below their $38 per share offering price and had lost more than half their value by the middle of August, angering investors. Investors also complained they were not told just prior to the IPO that analysts at Facebook's investment banks were cutting their forecasts after learning of the company's internal projections for advertising revenue. The end of the SEC probe does not affect shareholder litigation against Facebook, Chief Executive Mark Zuckerberg and many banks over the Menlo Park, California-based company's IPO.
  • U.S. business spending data gives mixed signals on growth
    A mixed reading on the health of U.S. business investment on Friday suggested the economy may not have rebounded as strongly in the second quarter as previously believed, but it offered hope for the rest of 2014. Non-defense capital goods orders excluding aircraft, a closely watched proxy for business spending plans, rebounded 1.4 percent after declining by a downwardly revised 1.2 percent the prior month, the Commerce Department said. Core capital goods shipments are used to calculate equipment spending in the government's gross domestic product measurement. "The weak performance in core capital goods shipments during the quarter suggests that this segment of the economy is unlikely to contribute much to economic activity," said Millan Mulraine, deputy chief economist at TD Securities in New York.
  • Wall St. closes lower on Amazon, Visa; S&P's weekly gain erased
    U.S. stocks closed lower on Friday in a broad consumer discretionary-led selloff after Visa and Amazon, a pair of closely watched bellwether names, reported disappointing results. While the S&P 500 found support at its 14-day moving average, suggesting a recent positive trend in equities remains intact, the day's decline was enough to erase the benchmark index's gain for the week. Amazon.com Inc tumbled 9.6 percent to $324.01 as the biggest drag on the S&P 500 after reporting an unexpectedly big second-quarter loss due to greater expenses on investments. Visa Inc was the Dow's largest decliner, down 3.6 percent to $214.77 after the world's largest credit and debit card company cut its revenue forecast for the year.
