HARRISBURG — William J. Kuprevich Jr., D.O., of Bloomsburg, was recently chosen as president-elect of the Pennsylvania Osteopathic Medical Association (POMA), a statewide organization for physicians holding the Doctor of Osteopathic Medicine (D.O.) degree.
An active staff member at Bloomsburg Hospital, a rural preceptor at the Philadelphia College of Osteopathic Medicine, and in private practice at Susquehanna Valley Medical Specialties in Bloomsburg, he is the chief medical officer of the 2008 United States Olympic Team in Beijing, China, coordinating medical coverage for more than 600 United States athletes.
Dr. Kuprevich was installed during POMA's Centennial Clinical Assembly, held April 30-May 3 at the Valley Forge Convention Center in King of Prussia. The Assembly attracted over 1,600 physicians, residents, interns and medical students.
LEWISBURG — Physical therapist Janine Fee, of Mifflinburg, was recently chosen as the April Employee of the Month at Evangelical Community Hospital. Fee has been employed at Evangelical since 1998.
Fee exhibits an ongoing commitment and passion for delivering quality customer service. "On one of the iciest days of the winter," Director of Rehabilitation Services Bob Musser recounts, "Janine was worried about one of her balance patients slipping and falling in the parking lot. She got the patient's car keys, pulled the car around to the front of the building and made sure that the patient got in the car safely before she sent her on her way."
On a daily basis, she represents what a caring and compassionate healthcare worker should be. "Janine goes about her work with a sense of purpose, much knowledge and genuine caring," Vice president of nursing Paul Tarves, RN noted. "Patients have even told me they have fun under her care. Regardless of where you see Janine, she is positive, friendly and high energy."
