The Market Shops to Host OneBlood Drive
The Market Shops will host the OneBlood Drive on Friday, April 13, 2018, from 11:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. Following the success of the last three drives held in April July, and October, which saw an impressive number of donors, The Market Shops plans to continue these on a quarterly basis. The OneBlood Big Red Bus® will be parked in The Market Shops parking lot, adjacent to Highway 98.
OneBlood is a not-for-profit 501(c)(3) community asset responsible for providing safe, available and affordable blood. Generally healthy people ages 16 or older who weigh at least 110 pounds can donate blood. Photo ID is required. All donors receive a wellness checkup of blood pressure, pulse, temperature and iron count, including cholesterol screening. Donors will also receive a OneBlood t-shirt and a kid’s scoop of ice cream from Ben & Jerry’s in The Market Shops. One in three people will need blood in their lifetime. Blood that is donated on April 13 will likely be transfused within two to three days. The turn-around is that fast, the need is constant. Many potential blood donors believe that they cannot donate blood due to medical or other reasons. If you are curious if you are a candidate for donation or to learn more about the importance of blood donation and how donors can target the power of their blood type, visit oneblood.org.

Sacred Heart Hospital Takes Surgery Beyond the Limits of the Human Hand
MIRAMAR BEACH, Fla. – Sacred Heart Hospital on the Emerald Coast has acquired the newest state-of-the-art da Vinci Xi® Surgical System, one of the most precise and least invasive surgical treatments available. Thanks to the newly advanced, robotic, computer and optical technologies, many patients at Sacred Heart will experience faster recovery with shorter hospital stay, smaller incisions with less discomfort and reduced need for pain medicine.
“Our community deserves the most advanced medical care we able to give them. This robotic system allows our patients to recover from surgery as quickly as possible,” said Roger Hall, president of Sacred Heart Hospital on the Emerald Coast. “We are committed to being a leader in providing patients with minimally invasive treatments.”
Gynecologic surgeon Dr. Glenn Bankert of Sacred Heart Medical Group is one of several highly skilled surgeons who will be using the new technology to perform minimally invasive surgery. Bankert has 3 ½ years of experience with robotic operations and has performed nearly 400 patient procedures using the da Vinci Surgical System at Sacred Heart Hospital in Pensacola and other hospital locations. Dr. Bankert’s training was performed through the Intuitive Training Centers in Atlanta, GA. with additional specialized training at Intuitive Training Centers in Sonnyvale, CA.
“For our gynecologic surgery patients, this robotic technology means less pain, reduced blood loss, less scarring, shorter hospital stays and faster recovery times compared to more traditional surgical techniques,” said Dr. Bankert. “We expect to see decreased rates of infection, decreased length of stay in the hospital and faster return to baseline function so patients are better prepared if they need to undergo additional treatment beyond surgery.”
Robotic arms equipped with a camera are guided remotely by the surgeon’s precise movements into the patient’s abdomen or chest through small incisions, typically the size of a dime. Surgeons see high-resolution video and move up to four robotic arms remotely to perform procedures. The da Vinci Xi instruments have tiny mechanical wrists that bend and rotate to mimic the movements of the human wrist – allowing the surgeon to perform even the most complex and delicate procedures through very small incisions with great precision.
The da Vinci Xi System can be used across a wide spectrum of minimally invasive surgical procedures and has been optimized for procedures in which instruments must be able to reach up and down and across the abdomen or chest.
The new robot will be used at Sacred Heart in the following specialty areas:
“Robotic technology continues to advance and that allows our surgeons to perform more intricate and complex surgeries that are less invasive,” said Dr. Gary Pablo, Chief Medical Officer at Sacred Heart. “We are pleased to be able to serve our patients with the newest robotic technology available in our region.”
The community is invited to an open house and ribbon cutting event on Tuesday, March 13, from 10 a.m. to 12 p.m. on the hospital’s second-floor atrium area for a meet-n-greet with our surgical team and a “test drive” of the da Vinci Xi robot. Refreshments will be served.
The newly advanced da Vinci Xi® system will also be available at Sacred Heart Hospital in Pensacola this June.
