Kitchen Dimensions

Kitchen Dimensions

A Pennsylvania Dutch proverb claims “No matter where I serve my guests/It seems they like my kitchen best.” And there’s a lot of truth in that statement, especially today. In many homes, well-appointed kitchens aren’t just food-prep areas—they do double-duty as bustling entertainment spaces. And if you’ve decided to give your kitchen a general facelift—or perhaps a complet... »

Don’t wait. Those two little words summarize the approach of Ric Baxter, M.D. to hospice and palliative care. Both hospice and palliative care “help you live the best life you can in your remaining time; if you wait until you’re actually dying, you lose many of its benefits.” After all, Baxter should know -he’s the Chief of Palliative Care at St. Luke’s U... »

A robotic simulator, or a manikin that sweats, sheds tears, has a heartbeat, and pulse. An imaging table that allows you to view skin, muscles, organs, and veins at any angle and to any depth. Detailed, unscripted interactions with “patients” in a serious form of improv theater. That’s just some of what you’ll find at St. Luke’s Simulation Center. It’s a place where ... »
