Bertrand Chaffee Hospital is pleased to announce the introduction of the
Orthopaedic Surgery Center at Bertrand Chaffee Hospital starting on May 2,
Dr. Paul Mason, MD, will be providing orthopaedic services to Springville
and the surrounding communities. Dr. Mason completed medical school at the
State University of New York at Buffalo’s Jacobs School of Medicine and
Orthopaedic Training and Fellowship in hip and knee reconstruction at the
world-renowned Henry Ford Health Systems. He is board-certified by the American
Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons.
Dr. Mason is a founding partner of Buffalo Orthopaedic Group and Buffalo
Bone and Joint Surgery. He is Past President of the Medical Staff at Sisters of
Charity Hospital and served as Medical Director of the Millard Fillmore
Ambulatory Surgical Center.
Dr. Mason is a native Western New Yorker, where he has practiced for nearly
20 years, and where he and his wife raised their four children.
Joining Dr. Mason is Physician Assistant Jim O’ May. Mr. O’ May graduated
from Daemen University’s Masters of Science in Physician Assistant Studies. He
has practiced with Dr. Mason for 16 years. A Rochester native, Mr. O’ May is
the proud father of two girls and currently resides in Lancaster.
Dr. Mason specializes in hip and knee reconstruction, arthroscopic treatment
of shoulder disorders, and Carpal tunnel syndrome. He has achieved Joint
Commission on Accreditation of Healthcare Organization (JCAHO) accreditation
for Advanced Hip and Knee Joint Reconstruction Certification and is one of only
a handful of joint programs in New York State to have achieved this prestigious
certification. His consistent HCAHPS scores rank him in the top 1% of
orthopaedic surgeons nationally.
“Dr. Mason brings a vast wealth of experience to Bertrand Chaffee Hospital,” said BCH CEO Nils Gunnersen. “Dr. Mason, Mr. O’ May, and their orthopaedic practice are a perfect complement to our campus and our organization’s strategic intent to grow and add new services for our community. We are enthusiastic to have them join the BCH family and share their expertise in order to best serve our patients.”

Jennie B. Richmond Nursing Home invests in the future of
our employees. We know that caring for our staff extends to our exceptional
patient and resident care. “Every positive resident experience is made better
by our associates. That’s why we invest in our team by supporting and fostering
their career growth. At BCH and JBR, we want you to reach your full
potential, which is why we deliver the training and programs to do just that”
reports Carole Francis, Licensed Nursing Home Administrator.
Are you looking to find a job and also help out your
community? You may think you need a college degree to work in a field like
health care. Although many employers look for prior experience or certificates
to fill health care jobs, some health care positions require none at all. In
fact, they can be learned through on-the-job training. The health sector is one
of the best places to get your foot in the door before moving up a very diverse
career ladder that offers the promise of long-term job security. Individuals in
these entry-level positions support physicians and nurses in many ways. For
example, Personal Care Aides assist with non-physical resident care, escort
residents to appointments, keep residents’ rooms neat, set up equipment, store
and move supplies, as well as assist elderly residents with making beds, doing
laundry, passing trays at mealtimes and engaging the elderly in social
conversations. Oftentimes, individuals in this position train to move up to the
position of a Certified Nurse Assistant.
Jennie B. Richmond Nursing Home’s Certified Nursing
Assistant training program is a great way to gain valuable hands-on clinical
experience in the field of nursing care. Jennie B.’s program is free and
requires minimal qualifications. Certified Nursing Assistants provide direct
resident care and perform routine tasks under the supervision of nursing and
medical staff. They may assist with some procedures, as well as report on any
changes to a patient’s physical, mental and emotional condition. Trainees must
complete a state-approved education program and pass their state’s competency
exam to become certified.
Recently, Jennie B. Richmond Chaffee Nursing Home in
Springville graduated five new Certified Nursing Assistants from their training
program held in March. “This is our second class of trainees and we are happy
to see them strive and succeed,” states Renna Thaine, Director of Nursing for
Jennie B. Richmond Nursing Home.
As health care continues to grow as an industry, so will
the need for workers in a variety of roles—many of which won’t even require you
to have a college degree. Are you trying to get your foot in the door, but
aren’t sure where to start? Jennie B. Richmond Nursing Home is actively
recruiting for a variety of positions such as registered nurses (RNs), Licensed
Practical Nurses (LPNs), certified nursing assistants (CNAs), personal care
aides (PCAs) and screeners.
Our next CNA Training course is starting soon.
Training coursework is held regularly throughout the year and paid for by the
organization. The next CNA training course will begin on May 2; applications
are due by April 25. To learn more about the CNA training program or to apply,
