Monica’s Bakery to become first Kitsap Pop-Up Restaurant

Following the lead of the international trend in pop up restaurants, Monica Downen and her team at Monica’s Waterfront Bakery & Cafe is planning a one-night-only gig as ‘Monica’s Pizzeria’, Sat., Nov. 30, at 4 p.m.

The temporary restaurant concept, inspired by supper clubs, began overseas and has gained popularity on the east coast and California.

“Seattle is beginning to see its share of pop up concepts”, said Downen, “and I want to lead the way for the great people of Kitsap to have this experience.”

Monica and Mark Downen perfected their pizza style in Italy while hosting a food and wine tour.

“This is an opportunity to do something completely different for our customers,” Downen said.

“We will be opening the doors at 4 p.m. and making pizzas, salads and dessert until 8 p.m.

“We are pre-selling tickets to anyone who wants them so that we can predict our service needs.”

Harrison earns Stroke Silver Plus Quality Achievement Award

Harrison Medical Center’s stroke care program has received the American Heart Association/American Stroke Association’s Get With The Guidelines®—Stroke Silver Plus Quality Achievement Award.

Harrison earned this award for meeting established national benchmarks in stroke patient care for 12 consecutive months.

In addition, Harrison has achieved a place on the AHA/ASA’s Target: Stroke Honor Roll for rapid stroke treatment in the emergency department.

“This award reflects Harrison’s continued success to ensure our patients receive exceptional stroke care,” said Scott Bosch, President and CEO of Harrison Medical Center. “Throughout the hospital, our clinical care teams collaborated to meet the rigorous standards in emergency stroke response and recovery.  I’m especially proud of not just the award, but what it represents for our community, and that is exceptional stroke care when moments count.”

Washington State recognizes Harrison as a level II stroke center for having the necessary staffing, infrastructure, and processes in place to stabilize and treat most acute strokes.

As the region’s leader in stroke intervention and recovery, we offer services that demonstrate best practices in stroke care, such as:

• a partnership between emergency medical service providers and Harrison’s emergency, pharmacy, and radiology departments that provides for rapid diagnosis and treatment of stroke patients, 24-hour consultation with a local neurologist, and access to the University of Washington’s UW Telestroke program;

• assessment by experts in occupational, physical, and speech therapy who also have advanced  training in stroke rehabilitation,

• a stroke unit staffed with caregivers—such as Nicholaus Morris, RN, one of the first nurses in the state to receive certification in stroke nursing—who have the additional training and heart to care for the complex stroke patient, and

• an active Stroke Support group for stroke survivors, their families, and caregivers.
