Re-learning Skills Community
After a Spinal
Cord Injury 5

Orlando Health, in thanks to a grant from Paralyzed
Veterans of America (PVA), hosted a two-day course
on the continuum of spinal cord injury treatment from
admission to the hospital to discharge. The aim of
the conference was to expand a provider’s knowledge
of spinal cord injuries and provide a framework for
Open to healthcare workers in the community, the
conference contained lectures, hands-on demonstrations
and labs, and a tour of the Orlando Health Rehabilitation
Institute located at Orlando Health Orlando Regional
Medical Center (ORMC) – where patients with spinal
cord injuries re-learn the practical skills necessary for
life after discharge. The facility helps patients learn how
to use utensils and appliances, and complete other tasks
that require fine motor skills that may have been affected
by their injury.


PVA was founded in 1946 and focuses on issues
involving the special needs of its members – veterans
of the armed forces who have experienced spinal cord
injury or dysfunction. As part of their mission of
advocating through research and education, the PVA
awarded Orlando Health a grant of approximately
$15,000 to facilitate the conference, purchase equipment
to demonstrate best practices to attendees and made it
possible for professionals in the community to attend at
no cost.

West Orange Healthcare District:
Cultivating a Healthy Community

With a mission of making west Orange County the
‘healthiest community in the nation,’ the board of
trustees of the West Orange Healthcare District have a
lofty goal ahead of them, but they are fully committed
to reaching it. Board members are regularly appointed
by the Governor of Florida and are guided by the
community. They serve west Orange County with key
goals in mind: providing access to quality healthcare
close to home, insuring access to healthy food,
nutritional education and heathy lifestyle options, and
filling the gaps in the community for all residents –
including those who are underserved or underinsured.
In 2011, the District board underwent a rigorous
search process to choose a strategic community partner
best positioned to help them achieve their mission of
meeting the growing healthcare needs of west Orange
residents. The board determined that Orlando Health,
being committed to quality and well-established in the
community, was ideally positioned to help them increase
access to – and quality of – healthcare for local residents.

The current boundaries of the district extend from
Kirkman Road to the east, the Lake County line to the
west, the City of Apopka to the north and the Osceola
County line to the south.

Doctors’ Day:

Celebrating our Caregivers,
Friends and Heroes

At Orlando Health, physicians do more than just treat Dr. Joseph Ibrahim
patients, they are friends and often our heroes. On Friday,
March 30, the United States will be observing National
Doctors’ Day as a way for patients to say thank you to
the doctors from whom they, or someone they love, have
received extraordinary care and compassion.
The first Doctors’ Day was observed on March 30, 1933 in
Winder, Georgia. The day was started by Eudora Brown
Almond, the wife of a doctor, who wanted to have a day
to honor physicians and the work they do to help patients.
Almond chose March 30 as it marked the day of the first
documented use of anesthesia in surgery in 1842. In 1991,
President George Bush proclaimed March 30 National
Doctors’ Day, encouraging all Americans to observe this
day with programs and activities.

A Risky Operation
Leads to a Miracle

The Tietjen family’s trip to Walt Disney World Resort
started out as an attempt to celebrate young Lena’s last
days and ended in the celebration of a miracle. Lena,
just four years old, was diagnosed with anaplastic
astrocytoma, a rare malignant brain tumor in the fall of
2017. Her family was told by her doctors that the tumor
was inoperable and she only had a short time to live. So,
the family planned a trip to Disney as Lena’s last wish.
It was on the way to the airport for the trip back to
their home in New Jersey that Lena’s health took a
turn for the worse and she had to be rushed to
Orlando Health Arnold Palmer Hospital for Children.
At the hospital, it was discovered that the tumor had
doubled in size and ruptured, but that didn’t deter
Dr. Samer Elbabaa, medical director of pediatric
neurosurgery, from suggesting a risky surgery that was
previously impossible.
“I saw certain changes in the tumor that led me to believe I
could operate,” explained Dr. Elbabaa. “When I suggested
the surgery to Lena’s parents, they were happy to take the
risk if that meant potentially extending her life.”
With the surgery, Dr. Elbabaa was able to remove 90
percent of the tumor and it has given Lena and her
family a new lease on life. While Lena’s condition is
still precarious, the operation gave her a chance at
survival. Lena was given the chance to undergo radiation
treatment and participate in clinical trials, and physical
therapy is helping her do things that other kids her age
are able to do.


Samer Elbabaa, MD, FAANS, FACS is the Medical
Director of pediatric neurosurgery at Orlando Health
Arnold Palmer Hospital for Children and the director of
the hospital’s Neuroscience Center of Excellence, which
has been expanded to include a fetal surgery program
under the direction of Dr. Elbabaa and his extensive
training in surgical fetal intervention, particularly babies
with severe spina bifida. 17

Dorothy Dennis’
Legacy of Giving

The Orlando Health Foundation recently lost a long-
time supporter, volunteer and friend in Dorothy Dennis.
Dorothy began donating to the Foundation in 2002 after
learning the benefits of giving through a charitable gift
annuity. She always had a love for children and felt in
her heart the need to support a cause she believed in.
Giving through a charitable gift annuity allowed Dorothy
to help others while still enjoying a guaranteed income.
Over the years, and always on her birthday, Dorothy
donated nine additional gift annuities to support the
ongoing healthcare needs for children being cared for at
Arnold Palmer Medical Center.

Dorothy’s history of giving back to others started well The former Rutgers professor was still thinking of others

• A gift annuity can be funded with donations of $10,000 or more using cash or appreciated assets. In exchange
for your gift, the Foundation will provide a guaranteed fixed lifetime income to you, or to you and another
person of your choosing. The interest rate is based on your age at the time of the gift.
• You will be entitled to a substantial income tax deduction in the year of your gift, capital gains taxes will be
divided over time, and a portion of your payment will be tax-free.
• When the annuity ends, the remaining value is passed on to the Orlando Health Foundation, furthering the
mission of Orlando Health to improve the health and quality of life of the individuals and communities we serve.

Kenneth (Ken) Smith on November 11, 2017. Ken was
a member of the Orlando Health Foundation Board of
Directors for more than ten years and had a passion for
Ken was a native of Orlando and spent most of his life
in Central Florida aside from his time in Tallahassee
attending Florida State University and his four years in
the United States Air Force, where he gained the rank of
lieutenant. While in the Air Force, Ken attended flight
school and subsequently became a flight instructor.
After completing his service, Ken returned to Orlando
to work with his father at Smith-Wilson Office Supply
Company, a firm his father founded in 1946. Realizing the economy was changing, Ken sold the business in 1987
and gifted the building that housed it to Orlando Health, where today it is The Howard Phillips Center for Children
& Families. Ken then returned to his second passion – flying – becoming a private pilot for businesses, political
figures and numerous charities, including Angel Flight.
Ken will always be remembered for the time and commitment he gave to the Orlando Health Foundation over the
years. His infectious smile and ability to make everyone feel like a friend will never be forgotten.

“Ken Smith was a wonderful leader and friend to Orlando Health
and to the many patients and families we serve,” John Bozard,
