We are proud to announce our Lance Michael Emmons Music Scholarships to Local Students!
Mercy Foundation, and members of the Stapleton family, recently awarded $10,000 in scholarships to four local high school students who share Lance’s love of music.
“Music has played such a huge part in all of our lives; whether it was playing the piano at home, attending concerts and shows or performing on stage,” says Lisa Platt, Mercy Foundation president." Lance’s family wanted to celebrate his life and his love of music, so they created the Lance Michael Emmons scholarship to help local students with a passion for music pursue their academic goals."
Students include Katelyn Andersen who received a $4,000 scholarship and plans to attend the University of Oregon; Sean Brennan who received $3,000, also plans to attend the University of Oregon; Tristan Aldous received $1,500 and is headed to Western Oregon University and Logan Wood received $1,500 and he plans to attend Harding University.
For more information about the Lance Emmons Scholarship, please contact Lisa Platt at 541-677-4818.
The Lance Michael Emmons Scholarship is dedicated to serving those whose lives have been enriched by music.
Two months ago, Roy Lee spent a night in the hospital. He had become so dizzy that he had fallen and injured his head.
At first, he thought he might have an inner ear problem, but after he fell his doctors discovered he had a heart problem instead. His aortic valve wasn’t pumping his blood well enough to distribute the oxygen he needed through his body.
A few years ago, Lee might have been told there was nothing doctors could do for him. At 91, he would likely have been considered too old for high-risk open-heart surgery.
Lee is lucky, however, that Mercy Medical Center recently hired cardiologist Cihan Cevik, who specializes in a relatively new procedure called a transcatheter aortic valve replacement.
Cevik is the first Roseburg doctor to offer the procedure and, four weeks ago, Lee became the first local patient to receive it.

MERCY MEDICAL CENTER LABORATORY RECEIVES ACCREDITATION FROM COLLEGE OF AMERICAN PATHOLOGISTS
The Accreditation Committee of the College of American Pathologists (CAP) has awarded accreditation to Mercy Medical Center Laboratory based on results of a recent on-site inspection as part of the CAP’s Accreditation Programs.
Mercy Laboratory was advised of this national recognition and congratulated for the excellence of the services being provided. Mercy Medical Center Laboratory is one of more than 7,600 CAP-accredited facilities worldwide.
“Achieving CAP accreditation is a very rigorous and involved process,” states W. J. Coulter, Mercy’s Laboratory director. “A process Mercy’s Laboratory staff willingly undertake to ensure that we are providing the highest quality of care for our community members.”
The U.S. federal government recognizes the CAP Laboratory Accreditation Program, begun in the early 1960s, as being equal-to or more-stringent-than the government’s own inspection program.
During the CAP accreditation process, designed to ensure the highest standard of care for all laboratory patients, inspectors examine the laboratory’s records and quality control of procedures for the preceding two years. CAP inspectors also examine laboratory staff qualifications, equipment, facilities, safety program and record, and overall management.
