AtlantiCare recognized as
American Heart Association Fit-Friendly Worksite

The American Heart Association (AHA) recently recognized AtlantiCare as a Platinum-Level Fit-Friendly Worksite for helping employees live a healthier lifestyle by showing a commitment to health. This is the fourth consecutive year AtlantiCare has received the recognition.

Platinum-level employers:
• Offer employees physical activity options in the workplace.
• Increase healthy eating options at the worksite.
• Promote a wellness culture in the workplace.
• Implement at least nine criteria outlined by the American Heart Association in the areas of physical activity, nutrition and culture.
• Demonstrate measurable outcomes related to workplace wellness.

The Fit-Friendly Worksite program acts as a catalyst for positive change in the American workforce by helping worksites make their employees' health and wellness a top priority. The American Heart Association is working to change corporate cultures by motivating employees to start walking, which has the lowest dropout rate of any physical activity.

Arleen and Joseph Dougherty Intensive Care Unit
at AtlantiCare Regional Medical Center
Restaurant opened one year before hospital

More than 300 people attended a grand-opening event at Dock's Oyster House in Atlantic City June 7. The event raised approximately $80,000 to benefit the Joseph and Arleen Dougherty Intensive Care Unit at AtlantiCare Regional Medical Center Atlantic City Campus.

Dougherty-Family-with-Lori-Herndon copyMembers of the Dougherty Family join Lori Herndon, executive vice president, AtlantiCare and president and CEO, AtlantiCare Regional Medical Center. Frank Dougherty and Joe Dougherty, co-owners of Dock’s Oyster House; Knife and Fork Inn; and Harry’s Oyster Bar, thanked the more than 300 guests who attended the grand-opening of Dock’s. The event raised more than $80,000 to benefit the Joseph and Arleen Dougherty Intensive Care Unit at ARMC Atlantic City Campus.

The ICU was renamed in 2011 in honor and memory of Arleen and Joseph Dougherty, parents to brothers Joe Dougherty and Frank Dougherty, co-owners of Dock's Oyster House, established in 1897; Knife and Fork Inn, established in 1912; and Harry's Oyster Bar, established in 2011.

The event marked the grand reopening of Dock's after the completion of renovation and expansion of the restaurant.

"The Dougherty Family has been a generous supporter of the AtlantiCare Foundation over the course of the family's long history in Atlantic City," said Lori Herndon, executive vice president, AtlantiCare and president and CEO, ARMC, who noted Dock's Oyster House opened one year before what was then called Atlantic City Hospital was established on Ohio Avenue in 1898, less than six blocks away. "I want to express our heartfelt thanks to the Dougherty family. We wish you and Dock's Oyster House many more years of success. Thank you for being a partner with us in caring for our most critically ill patients. The unit which bears the name of your parents, Joseph and Arlene, impacts the lives of so many." Herndon also thanked all those who attended the event. "You are supporting and celebrating two long standing Atlantic City establishments."

About ARMC Atlantic City Campus's Intensive Care Unit
ARMC Atlantic City Campus's intensive care unit opened in the George F. Lynn Harmony Pavilion, February, 2008. It features 26 private patient suites, decentralized nursing stations, wireless technology, windows to allow natural light, family space, a conference room and other features designed to contribute to privacy, comfort and quality care.

Healing through nature-themed artwork of New Jersey and Philadelphia-area artists is in each patient suite, waiting area, nursing station and corridor. Each room has a computer for staff to chart at the bedside; a hands-free sink, in addition to the sink in the patient lavatory to contribute to patient and staff safety; standardized supply cabinets to contribute to efficiency of care; voice-activated communication system; and a patient boom positioned in the center of each room that holds medical gases, outlets and call buttons, everything the care team needs to care for the patient in 360 degrees around the bed. Suites are spacious enough to accommodate a family member. To acknowledge generous donations from the Dougherty family, in 2011, the ICU was named the Joseph and Arleen Dougherty Intensive Care Unit.
