Doctor and patient smilingA New Force Against Cancer

March 14, 2022

May 2021 is a time 91-year-old Robert Olea will never forget. It was the month he was diagnosed with terminal pancreatic cancer. Before Olea’s diagnosis, he was a very active man. He helped develop the Chico Air Museum, had a love for painting and woodwork, and had just finished building a new fence for his neighbor.

He was feeling good and keeping busy, but this all changed when he noticed a sudden discoloration in his urine. After experiencing this for several days, he decided it was time to go to Enloe’s Emergency department. Five hours later, the physician told him he had cancer. Read more.

Father and daughterCOVID-19 Q & A

March 11, 2022

March 11, 2022, marked two years since the COVID-19 pandemic began. In that time, COVID has had a devastating impact on society, both on a global and local scale. That said, the world has come a long way in two years. Advances in science have given way to vaccines, boosters, and treatments that have helped curb the stress COVID puts on communities and health care facilities like Enloe Medical Center.

Since the initial spike of the Omicron variant in early 2022, Enloe has seen a steady decrease in the number of COVID patients receiving care at the hospital. Still, COVID-19 is prevalent in Butte County. As we move into the third year of the pandemic, we sit down with Marcia Nelson, M.D., Enloe’s Chief Medical Officer, for a conversation about the current state of COVID. Read more.

End-of-year givingIt's Their Turn

Dec. 9, 2021

Eight-year-old Andrew Perrin can’t wait to have churros with chocolate when his family visits Spain this summer. “We’re not going to go anywhere,” his mother, Melanie Perrin, said laughing. “We’re just going to eat.” It’s a trip the family had to postpone for a year due to the pandemic. But now that the entire household is vaccinated against COVID-19, the trip is a go.

Melanie Perrin and her husband, both teachers, got their vaccines in early 2021. On Nov. 11, one week after the Food and Drug Administration, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, and the Western States Science Safety Review Workgroup authorized the emergency use of the Pfizer vaccine for children ages 5-11, the couple’s two children got their first dose.

Members of Enloe's Community Outreach teamA Sacred Mission

Oct. 14, 2021

When the notion of vaccinating parishioners at Cristo Salva Church against COVID-19 was presented to Pastor Carlos Palacios, he embraced the idea. Most were vaccinated, but he knew some weren’t — and some needed more information about the vaccines. “I knew that some families were afraid of the vaccine, others didn’t know much about it and some didn’t know they could get vaccinated,” he said.

On Sept. 19, members of Enloe’s Community Outreach team arrived with clipboards and laptops in hand, ready to register attendees for the free vaccination clinic. Enloe’s mobile vaccination team was not far behind with vials of the Moderna and Pfizer vaccines at the ready. Read more.

Across the world, the U.S. and California, COVID-19 cases are surging. The same is true right here in the North State.

As of Oct. 6, there were 79 people in Butte County hospitals due to the virus and 408 were in isolation, according to Butte County Public Health. To stay safe, officials recommend people continue wearing masks, washing their hands frequently and staying home if they’re sick. They also recommend seeing a provider and only taking proven medications. Some have turned to other drugs like Ivermectin. Read more.

FlightCare transport ventilatorGame-Changing Ventilators

Oct. 12, 2021

From memory, Jenny Humphries can’t quite quantify just how many COVID-19 patients have been transported via Enloe FlightCare since the start of the pandemic. But she knows the number is staggering.

Humphries, Enloe’s Chief Flight Nurse, also knows that two new ventilators purchased just before the pandemic began have been vital to her crew’s ability to care for these patients. In early 2020, the Enloe Foundation contributed $68,328 to purchase new critical care transport ventilators. And, this year, the Enloe Foundation Board of Directors also approved spending $152,351 to purchase an artificial heart/lung machine. Read more.

Our region has seen its share of disasters, but no matter what the challenge, our local health system and our community have consistently demonstrated unmatched resiliency and effectiveness in their response. How we have weathered the current COVID-19 pandemic is no exception.

Enloe caregiver prepping COVID vaccine An Unprecedented Undertaking

June 29, 2021

When COVID-19 vaccines first became available, it was a ray of hope for Enloe Medical Center’s caregivers. “It felt like we were finally working toward a solution,” said Julie Martin, Senior Director of Ambulatory Operations, whose team worked to create the hospital’s first clinic.

Since December, Enloe has administered more than 80,000 COVID-19 vaccines to people throughout Butte County. Beginning with frontline workers and then extending to the community at large, the undertaking has been unprecedented, resulting in the most patients ever seen at one site in the hospital’s 108-year history.

March 31, 2021

The game-changing Transcatheter Aortic Valve Replacement (TAVR) is offered at Enloe Medical Center’s Structural Heart & Valve Center performed by a pioneer in the field — giving heart patients new hope.

Until recently, open-heart surgical valve replacement was the only option for the treatment of aortic valve disease, a condition in which one of the major heart valves doesn’t work properly. If patients were too old or too frail, they were not candidates for surgery and no other treatment options existed. That’s a thing of the past. Read more.

Mind Matters

Aug. 5, 2019

Concussions result from a bump, blow or jolt to the head during sports, motor vehicle accidents, assaults, and even falls at home or on the playground. Nicole Meyer, 45, was cleaning her son’s room when she bent down quickly and hit the top of her head hard on a doorknob.

“I literally saw stars,” said Meyer, whose story is not uncommon. An estimated 1.6-3.8 million concussions occur every year, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. However, concussions are underdiagnosed and happen much more frequently than people realize, especially among young athletes. Recognizing the signs of a concussion, as well as proper diagnosis and treatment are essential. Failing to do so can be deadly. Read more.
