PIKEVILLE — Pikeville Medical Primary Stroke Center has received the American Heart Association/American Stroke Association's Get With The Guidelines®-Stroke Gold Plus Quality Achievement Award with Target: Stroke Honor Roll Elite.


The award recognizes Pikeville Medical Center's (PMC) commitment and success ensuring that stroke patients receive the most appropriate treatment according to nationally recognized, research-based guidelines based on the latest scientific evidence.


This marks the 3rd consecutive year the stroke center has earned Honor Roll Elite status.


"It is an honor that we have received this award and it is only possible with the great support we have from administration, the board of directors and Mr. May," said Dr. Naveed Ahmed, Primary Stroke Center Medical Director. "I want to commend the physicians and staff in the Emergency Department, Critical Care, the Primary Stroke Center on the 7th floor and the rehabilitation hospital who take care of our patients while they are recovering from the stroke," Dr. Ahmed continued. "We know that stroke patients will get the quality care in Eastern Kentucky because PMC is the only Primary Stroke Center that has been recognized consecutively over the years with the American Heart Association and American Stroke Association Get With the Guidelines awards."


"I want to thank the frontline staff who are meeting all the deadlines and have worked so hard to get this award for three years in a row," said Jeannette Sexton, Assistant Vice President of Patient Services. "The nurses who work on the stroke floors work tirelessly each day to execute the protocols required to earn this award," Sexton continued. "This unit is very close and demonstrates teamwork, that's why it's so successful."


To receive the Gold Plus Quality Achievement Award, hospitals must achieve 85 percent or higher adherence to all Get With The Guidelines-Stroke achievement indicators for two or more consecutive 12-month periods and achieve 75 percent or higher compliance with five of eight Get With The Guidelines-Stroke Quality measures.


Pikeville Medical Primary Stroke Center earned the award by meeting specific quality achievement measures for the diagnosis and treatment of stroke patients at a set level for a designated period.


These quality measures are designed to help hospital teams provide the most up-to-date, evidence-based guidelines with the goal of speeding recovery and reducing death and disability for stroke patients.


"As Medical Director of PMC's Primary Stroke Program since its inception, I will continue to support this hospital and community to take care of our patients in the best possible manor," Dr. Ahmed concluded.


The award was presented to PMC by OPP7, comprised of Kentucky, West Virginia, Ohio, Pennsylvania and Delaware.


"Congratulations to you all on receiving the highest awards from our Get With The Guidelines Program," stated Keely. "You have a highly gifted and dedicated team of people working here, providing stroke care to your patients. This award is not only a celebration for your hospital, but for your patients who are receiving this excellent care and have a higher quality of life because of what you all do."

PIKEVILLE — Eastern Kentucky Chapter of the American Red Cross announced a grant of $150,000 from American Electric Power (AEP) Foundation and Kentucky Power to purchase an Emergency Response Vehicle (ERV) for eastern Kentucky and 5,000 meals for distribution during any future emergency.


The presentation was made during a ceremony held on Oct. 2.


"Eastern Kentucky is no stranger to natural disasters like floods yet has never had its own dedicated ERV," Kentucky Power President Matt Satterwhite said. "That changes now. This modern vehicle will help the Red Cross quickly respond in our communities during emergencies."


He said the devastation resulting from the recent hurricanes, flooding and power outages that followed show the value this vehicle will bring to our region and beyond.


"It really shows how strong Kentucky is and what we can do. I just challenge all of our corporate partners to help fund things like this so we are making things better, every day," Satterwhite added.


This is the first-ever dedicated ERV in eastern Kentucky to serve our region and the surrounding areas to help those in need.


The Red Cross uses ERV's with response, relief and recovery operations to provide food, water, personal hygiene kits, blankets, cots, volunteer help and other assistance to those in need. The new vehicle is a mobile feeding station capable of serving up to 25,000 meals to people affected by hurricanes, tornados, earthquakes, forest fires, blizzards, ice storms or other natural disasters.


Executive Director of the eastern Kentucky Chapter of the American Red Cross Joanna King said the ERV will not only be used for major disasters but also for every day disasters.


"We're really excited to have the partnership with AEP Foundation and Kentucky Power to get the new ERV," she said. "We can feed first responders out of this during any major event, such as building fires, apartment fires, along with feeding our neighbors and helping out when it's the worst days of their lives."


King said the vehicle will be set to deploy nationwide.


"The next time there is a major disaster and we need to send our people, we can send the ERV vehicle from eastern Kentucky with eastern Kentucky volunteers and 25,000 meals," she said.


King said they are incredibly grateful to Kentucky Power and AEP Foundation.


"The eastern Kentucky Chapter Emergency Response Vehicle is a tremendous asset to the chapter, Kentucky, our neighbors in Southern Ohio and West Virginia and the nation," she said. "This gift is truly a game changer for the American Red Cross disaster relief, response and recovery in eastern Kentucky and will serve this area for 10 or more years to come."


King said Red Cross expects the ERV to arrive in January or February.


"Hopefully with AEP we can take the ERV around and tour the communities and show it off. Open it up and let you guys get inside," she concluded.

PRESENTATION: Eastern Kentucky Chapter of the American Red Cross (ARC) received a $150,000 grant from American Electric Power (AEP) Foundation and Kentucky Power to purchase an Emergency Response Vehicle (ERV) for eastern Kentucky. ARC unveiled the new and improved ERV to the public during a ceremony held on Oct. 2. at AEP in Coal Run.

PIKEVILLE — Pikeville Medial Center (PMC) Chief of Staff and Medical Director of Infection Control and Infectious Disease Dr. Fadi Al Akhrass was among current and future health care providers who gathered to discuss the opioid addiction problem across Kentucky.


"It's important for drug users to not exchange needles to avoid complications such as hepatitis C and HIV," Dr. Akhrass told those gathered for the Provider Education Substance Use Disorder event held on the University of Pikeville campus on Oct. 3. "It's not the perfect solution but it's a start."


He said many drug users face a number of medical complications when it comes to years of abuse.


"We are facing a serious epidemic in not only our state but our country," Dr. Akhrass said. "Sadly, many lose limbs and a high number die as a result."


Hepatitis C has affected more than 53,000 in Kentucky. Each one of those individuals has the potential to infect up to 20 others.


Dr. Akhrass said legislators in Frankfort can play a big role in slowing down the progress of abuse.


"Our leaders in state government can and must play a big part in helping us battle the crisis," he added.


By placing a three-day limit on opioid prescriptions for acute pain, such as removal of wisdom teeth, lawmakers are hoping House Bill 333 will hit the epidemic where it starts – prescriptions from well-intending physicians.


"There is a card on your table that says 1,404 deaths from overdose was an all-time high for our state in 2016," Shaping Our Appalachian Region (SOAR) Executive Director Jared Arnett said. "It's a serious problem that needs our attention."


Dr. Ardis Dee Hoven, current professor of medicine at the University of Kentucky's College of Medicine said it comes down to rural communities needing education on needle exchange.


"We need to reach out as providers and physicians to those abusing drugs," she said. "Residents in Kentucky average 26.7 percent for being as risk. West Virginia's number is 56.3 percent."


More than 500,000 people died from 2000-15 from opioids.


"Each and every person here today, many who run a medical practice, has an opportunity to play a role in alternatives on how to manage pain," Arnett added.


WellCare of Kentucky President Bill Jones announced a $25,000 Hyper Local grant to combat the epidemic.


"A small amount in the grand scheme of things is a start," he said.


The session began by discussing Neonatal Abstinence Syndrome, or drug dependency in newborns.


A high-rate of opioid addiction in newborns has placed expecting mothers across eastern Kentucky, at high risk.


Senior Deputy Commissioner for the Kentucky Department for Public Health Dr. Connie Gale White said 18-44 year-old women across the state lead the nation in overdose deaths.


The day-long event was hosted by SOAR.


"The Medical Leader does not endorse political candidates or legislation".

PIKEVILLE — Pikeville Medical Center (PMC) recognizes World Obesity Day on Oct. 11 from 11:30 a.m. until 1:30 p.m. with a kick-off for the fourth annual Reclaim Your Life 5K.


The Pikeville City Park will be the backdrop for obesity education, free health screenings and race registration.


There will be free healthy snacks and water plus a challenge to start conditioning for the Reclaim Your Life 5K on April 28, 2018.


"We are inviting everyone to join us in the park and get registered for our upcoming race," said PMC Bariatric Surgeon, Amy Johnson, M.D. "Obesity is an epidemic locally and throughout our country and we are striving to make a difference right here in eastern Kentucky."


Dr. Johnson says a lifestyle change is necessary to overcome obesity and that change includes healthy food choices and exercise.


"Our 5K race has a proven track record for encouraging patients to become active," said Dr. Johnson. "They work hard to prepare for the race and after they cross the finish line they know they really can do it. It is a feeling they never forget. This accomplishment is a testament to their commitment to reclaim their life."


The PMC Wellness and Weight Loss Center staff will be available to discuss obesity and the dangers that arise from this challenging disease. They will provide information and options for weight loss while answering any questions that may be preventing anyone from taking their first step toward wellness.


"I am excited we are recognizing World Obesity Day. Correcting this disease is going to require a change in our modern relationship with food," said PMC Wellness and Weight Loss Surgery Center Clinic Manager, Susana Potter.


Potter says they will offer taste testing so everyone can experience a bite of their Health Management Resource (HMR) option for weight loss.


"I am hopeful we can show people there are ways to eat healthy without going hungry," she said. "We have seen tremendous weight loss success through HMR and we want to share this option on World Obesity Day in the park."


There will be free shirts for those who register for the race on World Obesity Day, while supplies last. There will be a live remote broadcast on East Kentucky Broadcasting's radio station WDHR 93.1 for those who are unable to attend.


For additional information, contact the PMC Wellness and Weight Loss Surgery Center at 606-218-2205.

PIKEVILLE — Pikeville Medical Center (PMC) Systems Administrator Joey Collins gets crowds dancing to the music with his after-hours business as a D.J. with Kimper Sounds.


"I am a person who enjoys seeing people happy and seeing people smile," said Collins. "If I can do something to make someone happy or they tell me they were so glad I was a part of their big day, it means a lot to me."


Collins spends his days as a Systems Administrator in the Information Systems Department making sure that all of the hospital's servers are running properly and information is backed up and stored.


But in his spare time as a D.J., Collins makes sure that people are dancing and having a great time at weddings, proms and parties.


D.J.ing has changed a lot over the years and has become technology driven, which fits right into Collins' area of expertise.


"D.J.s work from MP3 players now," said Collins who also incorporates lighting technology into his performances.


Kimper Sounds is a partnership with Collins' father-in-law, Rick May, who was laid-off from the coal mines after many years of employment.


"My father-in-law and I started talking one day about how we both like music," said Collins. "I used to play music for family events and he suggested we start a business."


They "bit the bullet" and purchased sound and lighting equipment and started booking small events. Their clients were so pleased with their work and suggested them to friends, growing Kimper Sounds' business by word of mouth.


A big break came for them when they started working with Hilton Garden Inn in Pikeville doing weddings.


"We got in with the Hilton early on and they liked how we handled weddings," said Collins. "We were nervous about weddings at first because it is someone's big day and you don't want to mess it up.


The Hilton approached us to do weddings and our business started taking off from there."


"I have collaborated with Kimper Sounds on numerous projects and with 14 years in the business working with companies all over the region, I can honestly say they are one of the very best. They are very thorough, streamlined, organized and efficient. Not to mention they have all the tools, accessories and experience to build an amazing package for any client and any event. They are my number one recommendation," said Valerie Huffman, director of sales, Hilton Garden Inn at Pikeville.


Kimper Sounds can accommodate any genre of music from classical to pop or country to rock– whatever the customer wants. They have a massive library of songs but are happy to get special requests if what the customer wants is not available.


To motivate a crowd, Collins has a list of songs that get people up and dancing, such as the Electric Slide and the Cha-Cha.


"A lot of people just can't sit still during those songs," said Collins.


Collins likes to book parties about three weeks prior to the event, but can make accommodations if this is not possible. Kimper Sounds has three sets of equipment which enables them to work several events in one day.


"We have actually done three events in one night," said Collins. "Rick and I divide and conquer and take extra help with us."


Find more information on Kimper Sounds or to book an event, visit their Facebook page or call 606-766-1151.

Pikeville Medical Center (PMC) proudly announces the addition of Matthew McCammon, DPM, foot and ankle surgeon.


He received his Bachelor of Science in Chemical Engineering from University of Minnesota in Minneapolis.


Dr. McCammon received his Medical Degree from Des Moines University College of Podiatric Medicine and Surgery.


"I was always drawn to medicine because of my love for science. I was working in an operating room and fell in love with podiatry," he said.


"I had two mentors during my residency. They taught me to be meticulous in surgery, always critically evaluate what I am doing and why I am doing it. They taught me to be a better podiatrist," Dr. McCammon said.


He looks forward to providing care to the region.


"My goals are pretty simple," said Dr. McCammon. "I want to provide the highest quality care and treat patients as if they are my family."


Several factors drew him to PMC.


"I was surprised to find a hospital of PMC's size in a small town. I was very impressed with the atmosphere and the state-of-the-art technology available at PMC," he said.


When he's not caring for patients, Dr. McCammon enjoys spending time with his dog, cycling, mountain biking and being outdoors.
