The club raised $25,000 and donated it to Providence St. Joseph Foundation during a dinner at DeBell Clubhouse Grill. The funds will go to the neurosciences department at Providence St. Joseph Medical Center, which cares for patients ailing from strokes, heart attacks, brain injuries and Parkinson's disease, said Louise Skosey, development officer with the foundation.

I am angered lately by something I see every day -- people jaywalking across a busy spot on Alameda Avenue where Providence St. Joseph Medical center is. In case these jaywalkers haven't noticed, Alameda Avenue is a busy street. Or perhaps, maybe, they just don't care. I can't even express to you my anger at the countless number of times I have seen people running across that street when there is a crosswalk literally five feet away. Some of the time, they are doctors -- people who have witnessed firsthand the damage a car can do -- jaywalking to the medical building across the street.

Gary Moskowitz MEDIA DISTRICT WEST -- It's been a wonderful 44 years in Burbank for Sister Rose Lulay. But Lulay, after more than four decades of service at Providence St. Joseph Medical Center, will return to her hometown of Sublimity, Ore., to care for her sister and brother-in-law who now reside in an assisted-living center. "In a way, when I came here it felt like a little family," Lulay said. "When you have people you can trust, and you love them, and they love you, it makes life easy."

Ryan Carter NORTHWEST DISTRICT -- Twelve-year-old Kevin Cabrera was anxious on Wednesday to play a basketball tournament game wearing the new pair of Kobe Bryant Adidas basketball shoes his father, Robert, bought him for Christmas. His father implored Kevin to wait until after the game and after Christmas, when a city park league will start up again. On Thursday, the shoes were in a wrapped box under the Cabreras' tree, waiting for Christmas Day, when Kevin could wear them all he wanted.

The bocce tournament was well underway when retired LAPD detective Michael Pavelka turned toward the hill to orient himself. Standing next to the clubhouse at Lakeside Golf Club, he looked out past the clubhouse gate and past Warner Bros. He craned his neck toward Forest Lawn Cemetery, which he visits on holidays and on his son's birthday. He never really connects with his son there. “I feel Matthew nearby, every day, at home,” Michael Pavelka said. On Nov. 15, 2003, Burbank Police Officer Matthew Pavelka was gunned down while on patrol.

Motherhood. It can be draining even for the most prepared. But for one mallard duck, it almost took her life. Fortunately, her unlucky turn occurred at a hospital - Providence St. Joseph Medical Center in Burbank, to be exact. For the past five years, ducks have used the koi pond at the hospital as a creche, but in March, this mallard - dubbed "Emilie" for Emilie Gamelin, founder of the Sisters of Providence - was left behind when her 13 ducklings took flight. The mother duck was left so weakened from her arduous term of motherhood that she molted her wing feathers, leaving her flightless - her condition exacerbated by an unhealthy diet of bread products provided by well-meaning visitors.

Glendale Adventist Medical Center, Glendale Memorial and Huntington Memorial hospitals all received Cs in the latest annual report card released by The Leapfrog Group. Verdugo Hills Hospital was not graded because there was not enough information available about the facility's operations, according to Leapfrog officials.

MEDIA DISTRICT — Thirty-four stroke patients were overexposed to radiation during CT scans at Providence St. Joseph Medical Center, officials said Monday. The hospital notified federal heath regulators last week of the radiation cases, becoming the third hospital in Los Angeles County under investigation for problems with CT brain perfusion scans, most often used to diagnose strokes, said spokeswoman Karen Riley, spokeswoman for the Food and Drug Administration. After the FDA released its initial report, Providence St. Joseph Medical Center reviewed its protocols for all CT perfusion studies, said Patricia Aidem, spokeswoman for Providence St. Joseph Medical Center.

BURBANK — Local hospitals have upped their visitation barriers in hopes of stopping the spread of the H1N1 virus among its staff and fragile patients. Providence St. Joseph’s Medical Center has restricted visitation to the maternity ward, labor and delivery, and neonatal intensive care units, said Patricia Aidem, the hospital’s spokeswoman. No children younger than 16 were allowed. Glendale Adventist Medical Center, Glendale Memorial Hospital and Verdugo Hills Hospital have implemented varying levels of restrictions for visitors 16 and younger, and for some, the cut-off age has been lowered to 14, as administrators try to guard patients susceptible to infection, such as those in maternity wards and neonatal intensive care units, against the spreading H1N1 virus, also known as swine flu. “That particular population intermixes a lot more than the normal population with others and therefore is more exposed,” said Warren Tetz, Glendale Adventist’s chief operating officer.

BURBANK — It’s been two years since Brittney Edwards was diagnosed with brain cancer at Providence Saint Joseph Medical Center. Now, she’s giving back. The 20-year-old serves as a volunteer at the hospital, which this week announced a partnership with Childrens Hospital Los Angeles and Childrens Hospital Los Angeles Medical Group to treat young adults with cancer. “I think it will be very uplifting to be around other people the same age,” said Edwards, a student at Glendale Community College.
