BURBANK - Michael A. Rembis, a leader among health care administrators in Southern California, will be the new chief executive of Providence Saint Joseph Medical Center, bringing 25 years of expertise in expanding quality medical services.

Rembis, 58, will take his new role in mid-September. He leaves his post as president and CEO of Hollywood Presbyterian Medical Center where he oversaw a range of specialty programs similar to those at Providence Saint Joseph.

Rembis replaces Barry Wolfman, who left the Burbank hospital earlier this year to return to his alma mater, George Washington University, where he is the medical center's top administrator.

"We ran a national search for a new chief executive and it was evident immediately that Michael's expertise matched our goals at Providence Saint Joseph," said Kerry Carmody, chief operating officer for Providence Health & Services, Southern California, who is serving as the hospital's interim chief executive. "His experience in advancing such specialties as cardiology, neonatal intensive care and orthopedics will enhance our ongoing efforts to expand our specialties and continue to bring top healthcare programs to the San Fernando Valley."

This is Rembis' first role as chief executive of a not-forprofit hospital, having held the top administrative positions at Hollywood Presbyterian, Riverside Community Hospital, Centinela Freeman Health System, Centinela Medical Center and JFK Medical Center in Indio. He also held administrative posts at Tenet Healthcare System hospitals in San Diego.

"Healthcare reform will bring significant change to the delivery of health care services," Rembis said. "I am excited to lead Providence Saint Joseph and its mission to provide greater access to high quality health care for the people of the San Fernando Valley and Los Angeles."

Providence Saint Joseph, celebrating 70 years, is a 431-bed hospital, known for advanced technology, including the use of robotics to enhance a tradition of quality care. Providence Saint Joseph has received recognition for orthopedics, neurology, bariatric surgery, maternity and cardiac services. It also is the home of the Roy and Patricia Disney Family Cancer Center and the Hycy and Howard Hill Neuroscience Institute.

Rembis began his career in 1978 at the Eisenhower Medical Center in Rancho Mirage. A native of Southern California, he attended UCLA and earned a master's degree in health services administration at the University of Southern California.

Rembis is the current chairman of PEACH - Private Essential Access Community Hospitals - and a member of the boards of the California Hospital Association, the Healthcare Association of Southern California and the Hollywood Chamber of Commerce. The Rembis family, Michael, his wife Kris and their three grown children live in Tarzana.

Wort was traditionally prescribed in parts of Europe for depression (in addition to use as a general-purpose tea), and Chinese medicine developed elaborate lists of herbs and preparations. With the scientific revolution in Europe and the United States, the use of traditional herbal remedies fell out of favor with the mainstream medical establishment, although a few people continued to use and maintain knowledge of traditional European herblore. In the early 20th century, scientists began reassessing this rejection of traditional herbs in medicine. Vorzüge eines intakten und lebendigen Gemeinschaftslebens bewahren.

Descriptive and quantitative transcriptome analyses are important for interpreting the functional elements of the genome and revealing the molecular constituents of cells and tissues. It is known that sperm function can be affected by ASG proteins, including the processes of capacitation and the acrosome reaction, as well as canadian pharmacy accutane sperm motility, DNA integrity and interaction with the oocyte.

This interaction of PDC-109 with the sperm cell membrane results in an efflux of cholesterol and choline phospholipids, that appears to be important for capacitation. The main changes in spermatozoa that occur during epididymal maturation are the ability to move, recognize and bind to the ZP, and to fuse with the plasma membrane of the oocyte..

The reasons for this are practical: many individuals in these families have a large number of nevi, and complete removal of them all is not feasible, since new atypical nevi continue to develop. In addition, individuals with increased susceptibility to melanoma may have cancer arise de novo, without a precursor lesion such as a nevus.
