Cottonwood Toastmasters to give away prizes at open house

The Cottonwood Toastmasters Club makes learning to speak in front of an audience comfortable and fun. The public is invited to come see the club in action at the Toastmasters Open House Monday, June 18th, noon to 1 p.m., at Cottonwood Village, 201 E. Mingus Ave., Cottonwood.

Guests will have opportunities to draw for prizes, and will be served a light lunch. They will observe how Toastmasters helps members improve leadership and communication skills, as well as their ability to speak in front of an audience. Each speech builds on skills acquired in the previous speech, and members work at their own pace through their chosen program. In the process, they gain confidence, build self-esteem and learn to captivate audiences.

Members have fun by practicing their joke-telling abilities and learning to speak extemporaneously. They acquire skills to keep their listeners as spellbound as the best TED talk speakers they have seen and admired. Toastmasters learn to express ideas, feelings, and beliefs in the context of a fun, non-judgmental environment that nurtures the communicator within.

For more information, contact Lou Rangel at 928-300-4945 or Noah Blough at 626-376-7637, or just show up. No reservation necessary.

Rehabilitation Hospital of Northern Arizona

Northern Arizona Healthcare (NAH) extends a warm welcome to the Rehabilitation Hospital of Northern Arizona (RHNA), with whom we will partner in providing the right care at the right time in the right place.

Before RHNA opened in Flagstaff, patients needing acute inpatient rehabilitative services had to leave Northern Arizona to find similar care services elsewhere. Rehabilitation Hospital of Northern Arizona is committed to serving and helping people recover close to home. As an inpatient rehabilitation hospital, RHNA will provide a minimum of 3 hours of aggressive physical, occupational, and speech therapies daily to patients suffering from disabilities caused by injury or illness, with an intense focus to help patients regain their independence and transition back to their home setting.

Ernest Health, the parent company of RHNA, built RHNA as the first free standing acute rehabilitation hospital in Flagstaff to serve both Flagstaff and all Northern Arizona communities. Ernest Health operates 25 hospitals across the nation, 17 of which that are Inpatient Rehabilitation Facilities (IRF) similar to RHNA. This expertise in rehabilitation care will be a great benefit to the region to continue Ernest Health’s practice of having top performing Inpatient Rehabilitation Facilities. Northern Arizona Healthcare has a long standing relationship with Ernest Health’s other Arizona hospital located in Prescott Valley, Mountain Valley Regional Rehabilitation Hospital, which ranks in the Top 10% of nearly 900 Inpatient Rehabilitation Facilities (IRF) nationally.

Rehabilitation Hospital of Northern Arizona has recently received The Joint Commission’s Gold Seal of Approval. The Joint Commission accreditation is recognized nationwide as a symbol of quality that reflects an organization’s commitment to meeting certain performance standards.

Patients well enough to leave NAH’s Flagstaff Medical Center, but still needing a high level of care, now have a place to support them in their transition. Rehabilitation Hospital of Northern Arizona provides a missing service greatly needed by the people we serve together. With 40-beds and all private rooms, RHNA is committed to partnering with our healthcare community to help ensure amazing care is provided close to home. We are proud to be working with RHNA and look forward to serving our community together.
