CrossFit Hillsboro Creating Partnerships & Employee Wellness with Hi-Tech Companies in Hillsboro
CrossFit Hillsboro is creating unique partnerships with TriQuint Semiconductor, Cascade Systems Technology, and Radisys Corporation in Hillsboro, Oregon to improve the health and wellbeing of their employees. With the help of CrossFit Hillsboro, these companies are expanding and improving their corporate wellness packages, in an effort to make significant improvements in the lives of their employees. Started in 2009, the “Corporate CrossFit” program is an ongoing initiative to improve the health and wellness of employees through the services of a personal trainer, strength & conditioning coach or CrossFit instructor. By investing in the health of their workforce, these companies gain a competitive advantage in attracting and retaining future and current employees.
CrossFit Hillsboro (CFH) is a dynamic strength & conditioning program, which emphasizes weight lifting and other movements at various lengths of time, and at different intensities, in order to elicit long-term and rapid results. CrossFit Hillsboro conducts its Corporate CrossFit sessions in both private training and group classes to ensure safety and accountability. All classes and sessions are conducted on site at CrossFit Hillsboro. “Never did I push myself like I do at CrossFit Hillsboro. Plus, I didn’t have the camaraderie with the coworkers to help motive me, or the interaction with personal trainers to ensure I was working out smart and pushing myself,” says Michael Higgens, an employee of Radisys who was part of CrossFit Hillsboro’s first corporate partnership. “They provide support and encouragement to get me out of my cube and into class.”
These and other corporations in Hillsboro are investing larger portions of their human resource budgets toward improving the lives and overall wellness of their employees. Some companies have even offered 100% reimbursement to employees who invest in CrossFit Hillsboro’s services. Other companies allow employees to take extended breaks to exercise with an instructor at CFH.
“Our goal is to create the strongest and healthiest workforce in Oregon to not only make signification impacts in the lives of each guest, but also improve the quality of life and livability of Hillsboro,” says Chuck Gonzales, co-owner of CrossFit Hillsboro.
Started by Chuck & Shelly Gonzales of Hillsboro, Oregon, CrossFit Hillsboro (CFH) first opened its doors as Pacific Personal Training (PPT) in 2008 in the Cornelius Pass Business Park, and has since grown to serve over 1200 guests per month. The company offers private training, CrossFit classes, boot camps & partner training.

Tuality Garners Five Awards for Healthcare Excellence
Tuality Healthcare staff, departments and programs were recently honored with five awards for healthcare excellence by VHA, Inc., a national healthcare alliance of which Tuality is a member.
The VHA West Coast Performance Awards included trophies for Tuality’s Clinical Information Systems (CIS) department, the organization’s initiative to go tobacco-free, and its committee to detect and prevent ID theft.
Two certificates of recognition also singled out the success of the organization’s program to reduce hospital-acquired pressure ulcers, and the work of Tammy Anderson, a senior clinical application analyst in Tuality’s CIS department.
The CIS department’s “innovation” trophy focused on its continuing work to manage, refine and improve Tuality’s electronic medical record (EMR) system, which was launched organization-wide in 2008. Specifically noted was the department’s work in streamlining workflows in key departments and enabling interoperability of EMR systems with community clinics.
Tammy Anderson’s certificate of recognition acknowledged her “passion” for her work in the CIS department. She was praised for her innovative ideas, technical expertise and ability to inspire her co-workers.
The initiative to change Tuality to a tobacco-free organization received a “performance achievement in hospital operations” trophy. The organization adopted a comprehensive no-tobacco policy starting Jan. 1, 2009, and was noted for the overall success and speed of the transition, the multi-facetted approach used to provide education and cessation assistance for patients, visitors and employees, and more.
Also receiving a “performance achievement in hospital operations” trophy, Tuality’s Identity Theft Tracking Committee was recognized for its work to validate and reduce the extent of which patients use false identity information. The group helped to raise awareness of the problem for staff and implemented simple yet effective solutions that helped Tuality save more than $400,000 in what otherwise would have been non-billable charges.
The Pressure Ulcer Prevention Program received the certificate for its success at eliminating incidence of the condition (sometimes called “bedsores”) for hospital inpatients. Clinical and education staff worked together to develop successful policies, tools and techniques to ensure consistent preventive measures.
“The diversity of awards this year is a clear indicator of the widespread innovation and excellence that occurs at Tuality Healthcare every day,” said Manny Berman, administrator & chief operating officer, Tuality Healthcare. “There are many individuals who contributed to these successes, and they are to be commended for their dedication to our patients, co-workers and community. Congratulations to all!”
Tuality was publically acknowledged for the awards at the VHA West Coast Fall Summit/Member Awards Event on Nov. 12 in Beverly Hills, Calif.

Cascade Tek, a leading product reliability test lab, laboratory oven manufacturer, and environmental chamber sales and service provider, has officially been selected by The Portland Business Journal as the 36th fastest growing private company in Oregon.
Selections were based on total revenue growth over the past 3 years, from 2006-2008. Cascade Tek has seen their total revenue increase from $2.8 million in 2006 to $5.2 million in 2008, for an 84.69% overall growth. Announcements were made at an awards ceremony held at the Portland Art Museum on June 18th, 2009. “This is the first time Cascade Tek has made the list of Oregon’s fastest growing private companies. It is such a thrill for our entire team,” states Mary Babitz, Vice President.

It means we truly are making an impact in helping Oregon companies bring new and reliable products to market with our product testing capabilities,” says Babitz.
The growth of the company is due in large part to their sustained dedication to environmental testing services.

Tuality Physicians Author Second Edition of Nuclear Medicine Textbook
Tuality Healthcare nuclear medicine specialists Gerbail T. Krishnamurthy, M.D., and Shakuntala Krishnamurthy, M.D., recently announced publication of the second edition of their book, Nuclear Hepatology, A Textbook of Hepatobiliary Diseases.
Published by Springer Publishing Company, the book continues to serve as the medical profession’s only textbook to focus exclusively on nuclear medicine studies of liver and gallbladder diseases.
Such diseases are common throughout the world, and include conditions such as chronic liver disease (cirrhosis), liver cancer, and gallbladder disease due to gallstones. These conditions account for a significant portion of the global healthcare economy.
This current version of the textbook, which the husband-and-wife physicians dedicated to their young grandson, includes almost entirely new content culled from their peer-reviewed medical journal articles published during the nearly 10 years since the book’s first edition.
The doctors analyze and compile study data using groundbreaking software they co-developed. In 2008, the Federal Food & Drug Administration approved the “Krishnamurthy Hepatobiliary Software” suite for use at medical centers around the world as a tool for interpreting and comparing functional hepatology studies.
Their work involves using quantitative, comparative data to analyze organ functions as opposed to structure. “Measuring function can give you information months or even years before physical changes take place in the organs,” said Dr. G. T. Krishnamurthy. For instance, he said nearly half of all women who experience pain related to gall bladder problems have not developed detectable gallstones.
While medical journal reviews of the new edition are pending, international experts praised the first edition for its detail, structure and depth of useful information.
Dr. G.T. Krishnamurthy said practicing nuclear-medicine physicians are the primary audience for this book. “They can use it as a reference guide or as instructions to help them conduct these tests for themselves.”
Dick Stenson, president & CEO, Tuality Healthcare, acknowledged the Krishnamurthys and their “trailblazing work” in hepatobiliary disease diagnosis.
“Their ongoing innovations not only serve their patients at Tuality, but also benefit people around the world,” said Stenson. “With the publication of this second edition textbook, they have reaffirmed Tuality Healthcare’s status as a center of excellence for liver and gallbladder diseases.”

The PCC Board of Directors consists of seven members elected by zones to four-year terms.

7.5-ton magnet arrives for a new neurosurgical imaging system at Providence St. Vincent Medical Center
WHEN: 8 a.m., Saturday, June 13
WHERE: Providence St. Vincent Medical Center, 9205 SW Barnes Road, Portland
Suspended by a crane 16 stories tall, a 7.5-ton magnet for the world’s most advanced intraoperative magnetic resonance imaging system will move into its new home at Providence St. Vincent Medical Center Saturday morning.
Delivery of the high-tech magnet brings Providence St. Vincent one step closer to offering patients the world’s most advanced iMRI. Once construction of the operating room suite is finished, Providence St. Vincent will be the first medical center on the West Coast – and one of only 16 in the world – to have the neurosurgical imaging system, called “IMRISneuro.”
IMRISneuro allows Providence Brain Institute physicians to take three-dimensional images of the brain during surgery. “We are thrilled to have this new tool that allows us to pinpoint the location, size and shape of a tumor in the operating room,” said Daniel Rohrer, M.D., co-medical director of Providence Cranial Services. Typically, doctors perform brain surgery and then take an MRI several days later to confirm the entire tumor is gone. “Taking images during surgery allows us to double-check our precision immediately, while the patient is on the operating table,” said Rohrer.
The new iMRI will be ready for use on patients early this fall. Providence St. Vincent also will act as an IMRISneuro luminary site on the West Coast. This means medical teams from both Asia and the western United States can visit the hospital and train in the iMRI neurological suite.
“With our recent 100 Top Hospitals recognition, Providence St. Vincent stands out as one of the best hospitals in the country. This new technology ensures we can offer patients needing brain surgery the safest care available,” said Janice Burger, the hospital’s chief executive.

There Must Still Be Time to Create Art, Linda Holland has Time to be Featured at Influence Gallery
The director of Tualatin Valley Artists, the non-profit group of artists who show their art in Influence Gallery is a busy woman, yet she still finds time to paint her watercolors and put together a show for the month of June.
Linda Holland, Hillsboro resident for over 20 years will show many of her never-before-seen watercolors at Influence Gallery, 131 SE 3rd Avenue with a reception on First Tuesday/Artwalk, June 2 at 5:30 p.m. The show ends on July 2.
Holland finds time for painting between the jobs she has volunteered for that keep her busy. She organized the Tualatin Valley Artists group in 2007 and with the help of some valuable members, has kept it viable for two years although the group has weathered some tough times.
As if that wasn't enough, she volunteered to help find the artists and musicians who fill the participating businesses for Artwalk - that keeps her busy.
Entertainment for the reception will be a five-piece band that plays a retro post-modern, contemporary style of music with a new grass spin called the Dismal Niche Orchestra or DNO, for short.
Jeff Harness, who plays guitar and sings says comedy plays a large role in their show as they are there to entertain. “In this life,” he said, “we all carve out our own dismal niche – part of the soggy Pacific Northwest mind set.” He adds his own bit of philosophy, “Remember, if you tap your feet to the music enough, moss can't grow between your toes.”
Paul Savanac plays the banjo and mandolin in the musical group and Barry Hagan does an amazing job with the tuba and bass. Dr. John Keys brings a multitude of instruments in like the dobra, mandolin, lap steel, and the six and 12 string guitars; Chuck Gilman plays the harmonica and helps Harness with the vocals.
But the star of the show is watercolorist Linda Holland who has been painting for over 30 years. After retiring from her career in publishing, (she owns Holland Graphics, Inc., Portland, now being run by her daughter and son) Holland thought she's take it easy and travel some while dabbling in her true love and pastime, painting. She did that for awhile but soon realized she wasn't using her creative energy.
With all that excess creative energy she went back to her original dream of spending her days showing art in a gallery while painting and talking to anybody that wandered in about art. That dream became a reality with TV Artists and had an added benefit: she got to show other artists' art also. Now her creativity juices began flowing again.
She gained popularity with a series of dragon and baby paintings and then went on to portraitures. Some of her more famous portraits were of Mayor Tom Hughes, the beloved principal of Glencoe High School, the well-known postal carrier of downtown Hillsboro and the owner of Main Street Books. As one of her fans said, “Linda, you've really found your niche.” (Not to be confused with the Dismal Niche Orchestra listed above).
Holland's next creative adventure will be to ask the new Chief of Police of Hillsboro if she will let her do her portrait.
Paintings included several people known in the local music scene since she has made a point to be involved in the Open Mic held every Friday at Influence. She has painted music groups like Couch, the band and Mick Schaefer of the Tree Top Tribe who plays regularly at The Venetian in Hillsboro and Don Haupt of Blues fame.
But throughout the different periods she never gave up her love of flowers. “Painting flowers soothes my soul,” she said. And they are soothing to look at also. There will be a collection of them at the show too.
The reception will be a double celebration. Moving into the new gallery space deserves a Ribbon-Cutting as a member of the Hillsboro Chamber of Commerce. So if you want to get in on those festivities be sure to come early... by 5:30 p.m.
Who are TV Artists? They are folks, just like you, who saw a way to do something good in our community. Tualatin Valley Artists is an organization of creative people dedicated to improving Hillsboro's quality of life by enhancing its cultural arts. Their vision isn't set by committee but by hearts and souls willing to work together for something they believe in, and they do so in an atmosphere of encouragement and opportunity. For more information about Tualatin Valley Artists call 503-956-5604 or go to www.tvartists.org.
For more information about the artist and the show call Linda Holland, 503-956-5604 or go to www.lindaholland.net. For information on the Dismal Niche Orchestra send email to firstname.lastname@example.org or Google Dismal Niche Orchestra.
Semiconductor Executive will be Recognized at the AeA Oregon Technology Awards Event in May
The Oregon Council of AeA (formerly the American Electronics Association) announced today the selection of Ralph Quinsey, president and chief executive officer (CEO) of Hillsboro, Ore.-based TriQuint Semiconductor, as the 2009 Technology Executive of the Year. Quinsey will be recognized publicly for the honor at this year’s Oregon Technology Awards program May 7, 2009 at the Portland Art Museum in Portland, Ore. Quinsey’s company, TriQuint, (NASDAQ: TQNT) is a leading radio frequency (RF) product manufacturer and foundry services provider in the semiconductor industry.
Quinsey was selected as the Technology Executive of the Year based on his leadership in his company, the greater Oregon community and the technology industry. Quinsey’s results- and employee-oriented approach to guiding TriQuint has contributed greatly to the company’s year-over-year growth over the past three years during a challenging period for much of the semiconductor industry. In his spare time, Quinsey contributes to his community in a variety of ways including his membership on the advisory board of Portland State University’s Maseeh College of Engineering and Computer Science, which receives input and funding from TriQuint.
Quinsey is widely recognized as streamlining the operations and focusing the market direction of TriQuint since he joined the company in July 2002 as president and CEO. While TriQuint has received mainstream exposure for its products’ place in many of the industry’s leading smartphones, the company also supplies products for WLAN, GPS, basestation, WiMAX, and defense and aerospace markets.
For this year’s award, Quinsey was chosen by a collection of the program’s previous Technology Executive of the Year and Lifetime Achievement Award recipients who make up the Selection Committee. They evaluated nominations from the committee and from the technology community at large.
