The 30 employees of the medical records department at El Centro Regional Medical Center will observe National Medical Records Week with a series of activities, including a staff luncheon in a local restaurant and a potluck breakfast in the department, at which two local physicians will be honored.
Medical Records Week is Nov. 4-10.
The luncheon will be sponsored by Medquist, headquartered in Irvine, which is under contract with the hospital for transcribing all hospital records relative to the treatment accorded patients.
Sandra Saunders, director of medical records, said the breakfast will give the department the opportunity to honor Dr. Jose Rocamora, chairman of the department, and Dr. Mohamed Suliman, chief of staff.
Saunders said other businesses have contributed employee recognition items that will be presented during the week. Donors include Bactes Imaging of San Diego, File Source and Quadramed of Irvine, Pioneer Van and Storage, The Allen Group, Green's Jewelry and Pioneer Printing, all of El Centro.
