Kettering Health | Strive | Fall 2022

AMERICAN HEART ASSOCIATION RECOGNIZES STROKE CARE This year marks the 15th year that the American Heart Association has awarded Kettering Health’s stroke program with the Get With The Guidelines®–Stroke Quality Achievement Award. This year, every Kettering Health emergency center earned recognition. This achievement shows that we give patients the most appropriate treatments according to nationally recognized guidelines, ultimately leading to fewer readmissions, shorter recoveries, and more lives saved in our community. OXFORD HEALTH CENTER NOW OPEN Oxford Health Center is now open at 5095 University Park Blvd., Oxford, Ohio. The new health center offers primary care, heart and vascular, women’s health, and general surgery services in a convenient location. UKRAINIAN STUDENTS ATTEND KETTERING COLLEGE This fall, Kettering College welcomed 50 students from Ukraine whose medical educations have been disrupted by war. In March 2022, as the Russian invasion began in Ukraine, the General Conference of Seventh-day Adventists created an Education Emergency Plan. Part of that plan provides education to students and refugees. “Whenever we talk about what can be done for Ukrainian students and refugees, Kettering College has done what no one else has, and others look up to you,” said Ivan Riapolov, education director for the Euro-Asia Division (ESD) of Seventh-day Adventists. 23
