January 30, 2017 - Continuing Our Tradition of Excellence:  St. Camillus to Host National Speaker, Dr. Cristen Krebs

Embrace the Journey: Catholic Teachings at End of Life

 

St. Camillus is excited to host national speaker, Dr. Cristen Krebs, DNP, ANP-BC, Catholic Hospice Founder and Executive Director.  Dr. Krebs will explore the teachings of the Catholic Church and those of Pope John Paul II on end of life care.

 

Dr. Krebs is a graduate of Robert Morris University's Doctor of Nursing Practice Program with twenty five years of end-of-life care experience.  She began the first faith-based, nonprofit hospice program serving Pittsburg and surrounding counties, and the first free-standing hospice residence in southwestern Pennsylvania.  Dr. Krebs strongly embraces the prolife health care philosophy as means to protect our nation's seniors, disabled, and the chronically/terminally ill.

 

Dr. Krebs resides in Pittsburg and is a practicing partner and owner of Palliative Care Associates, providing patients and their loved ones with relief from the physical symptoms and emotional stresses progressive and terminal illness brings.

 

You're invited to join us for breakfast and this informational presentation on Friday, February 10th at 10am at San Camillo, located on 10200 W. Bluemound Road in Wauwatosa.  If interested in joining, please RSVP at 414-259-6310 by February 3rd.  For additional information on the speaker,  please visit our website: www.stcam.com.

 

St. Camillus is a Life Plan Community in Wauwatosa, WI.  We allow seniors to choose their own future and offer a full continuum of services so they are able to do so all in one place.  As a Life Plan Community, St. Camillus allows both planning and merging through our Retirement Living, Assisted Living, Memory Care, Skilled Nursing, Rehabilitation, Home Healthcare, Home Hospice, and Care Management.

February 10, 2017 - St. Camillus hosts Governor's visit with the Wauwatosa Rotary Clubs

 

On Wednesday, February 1st, San Camillo hosted the Wauwatosa Rotary Clubs luncheon with guest speaker Governor Scott Walker.  The afternoon began with a visit with the Governor as our CEO, Kevin Schwab, led a tour through San Camillo and had the opportunity to explain our current and upcoming expansion plans and progress.  The Governor then proceeded to attend the Wauwatosa Rotary meeting in the O'Donnell Room at San Camillo with over 80 Rotary members in attendance.  He gave an informative talk on the upcoming state budget plans and connected with the audience as he reflected on his personal time living in Wauwatosa and being a part of all of the great things the city offers.  The Governor's speech was followed with an exceptional Italian lunch prepared by our own Chef Giuseppe Asciutto and San Camillo culinary team.  St. Camillus is excited to have had the opportunity to host Governor Scott Walker and the Wauwatosa Rotary Clubs meeting and luncheon.

February 10, 2017 - Embrace the Journey: Catholic Teachings at End of Life

 

On February 10th, San Camillo hosted national speaker, Dr. Cristen Krebs, DNP, ANP-BC, Catholic Hospice Founder and Executive Director.  Dr. Krebs was welcomed in the O'Donnell Room by a full crowd of over 110 engaged social workers, nurses, religious members, residents, and employees.  Dr. Krebs' overall presentation focused on the teachings of the Catholic Church and those of Pope John Paul II on end of life care; a Pro Life Model of Care.  She discussed the distinct goals of Catholic Hospice and how its dedication lies within providing compassionate care while affirming the dignity and sanctity of human life.

 

Dr. Krebs also explained the history of Hospice and the creation of the Medicare Hospice Benefit.  Since the inception of the first hospice agency in the early 1970s, the amount of hospice agencies and patients in the United States has grown astronomically, and with new programs and agencies, came new challenges.  Dr. Krebs discussed some of the challenges Pro Life hospice programs began to face as a negative reputation started to hover over the industry for not meeting Medicare, election, or certification requirements by committing hospice fraud.

 

The presentation concluded with a clear look at the Pro Life Hospice Model; with an emphasis on the Catholic Church being the ultimate patient advocate, not the hospice agency.  Dr. Krebs stated, "Being Pro Life, ultimately, is about loving others, especially the most vulnerable.  And this love isn't a feeling.  It is a commitment."  We are thankful to Dr. Cristen Krebs for leading a powerful and insightful discussion on the Catholic Teachings at End of Life.
