July 2017 - Best Texas ER Open 24/7, No Lines - Altus Emergency

Meet the Lufkin Administrator – Lauren Frazier

Meet the Lufkin Administrator: Lauren Frazier, MBA

Introducing Lauren Frazier, the Newly Appointed Lufkin Administrator, CHI St. Luke’s Health Memorial Emergency Center

On Monday, July 17, 2017, one of our very own Southeast Texas professionals, Lauren Frazier became the administrator of Lufkin’s Finest Emergency Center.  Lauren recently completed the rigorous Fellowship Program under the mentorship of Kevin Herrington, President of Altus Emergency Centers and Executive Vice President of Development – Healthcare Division ZT Wealth and ACHE Fellow.  

As Kevin describes, She has been part of the Lufkin project from the beginning and has lead significant marketing initiatives over the last year.”  Lauren has been a great asset, team member and mentor to her staff and peers over the years and will be even more so now as Lufkin’s new on-site administrator.

Meet the Lufkin Administrator who is dedicated to the amazing people behind the company, they are the stars that help us shine!

Studies & Formation

lauren-frazier-MBA-Studies

A Hometown Girl with International Flair

Lauren Frazier, the Lufkin Administrator, studied health sciences and minored in corporate communication and public relations, also obtaining a concentration in Biochemistry at Baylor University.  An adventurous spirit, Lauren has also been involved in international studies and practice in order to expand her perspectives.

I received my MBA with a specialization in Healthcare Administration at Lamar University. My early days were very focused on the clinical side with countless hours in labs and patient care and experience. I have completed countless days of hands-on-experience throughout my studies and career, including spending time in Costa Rica and Panama solely to help administer patient care and  assess the disparity and continuum of care.

Last summer, she did a Study Abroad MBA program in China which included projects and learning sessions in Beijing, Guangzhou, and Hong Kong.

The Fellowship Program

After a year in the fellowship program, Lauren is more than ready to tackle the leadership as the Lufkin administrator. The fellowship program was created for post-graduate students to thoroughly develop and begin their career as a well-rounded Healthcare Executive.  “During this time, I was able to lead significant efforts and gain thorough experience in all management departments including Communications and Marketing, Executive Office, Finance, Operations, Private Equity, Billing and Management, and other Regional Services associated with Altus Health. There is no training period for the rigorous program.”

It has been a long road to this point in my career. However, it is one that has been most rewarding.

Greatly respected by all, president Kevin Herrington announced her new role as Lufkin Administrator with great pride, Lauren has been a stellar employee and has a great ability to observe, analyze and make sound judgment calls.” 

Lauren is one of our excellent health care executives that has obtained valuable first-hand experience through the Fellowship Program.

MEET THE LUFKIN ADMINISTRATOR

Get to know this Port Arthur, Texas native.

We enjoyed a lovely chat with Lauren while she shared about her vision, purpose, family, and love of music. The following are some highlights of our interview with Lauren.  

Q: “Why did you decide to go into healthcare administration?”

A:  Lauren

“Healthcare Administration is a field where you are able to truly value each person within an organization because you know each person contributes to its success. You must be able to work with everyone from housekeeping to senior level executives. Throughout my studies and career, I have had very high-level and microscopic views of healthcare companies and organizations.”

 

Q: “What or who has been your biggest influence or your mentor?”

A:  Lauren

“I know most have one mentor. However, I’ve met several who played significant roles in guiding me, largely because I always asked ‘Why’ and ‘How.’  These people were willing to do more than just simply return with a short answer. Throughout my path, I have met many mentors, who have helped shape me and my future. The individuals who have had a truly lasting impression and helped shape me as a professional are Diana Kendall, PhD; Scott Garner; Rosalind Kennerson-Baty, Ph.D.; Dr. Terri Woods; Dr. Peter Isaac; Jeff Dyson and last but certainly not least Kevin Herrington.”

My parents instilled in me at an early age that you do something right or you don’t do it at all. That has driven me all my life.

“All of these people are remarkable and have left lasting impressions.”

Q: “Who is the Lufkin Administrator at Home?”

A:  Lauren

“Born and Raised in Port Arthur, Texas I have a true appreciation for hometown and local love. By day I am a Healthcare Executive and by night I am a loving wife to a High School Band Director, Alex Frazier.” 

Affectionately known as a band wife, my path is uncommon but one I wouldn’t trade.

“We have a French bulldog named Luca.  Music is obviously big in our household. I am really creative and enjoy spending time with my family.”

Fourth of July Safety – How to Celebrate Safe & Fun

Fourth of July Safety Tips: Great Ideas for Having a Safe & Fun Time

Fourth-of-July-Safety-How-to-Celebrate-Safe-and-Fun-Family

4th of July Celebration. Happy Birthday America!

As we get ready to celebrate the birth of our nation, Altus Emergency Centers would like to extend our gratitude and commemorate the brave men and women of the armed forces who have fought for our freedom and every one of you, who’s hard work, love of family and country helps build a better nation.

Fourth of July Safety: Fun Activities for the Whole Family

Fourth-of-July-Safety-How-to-Celebrate-Safe-and-Fun-Summer-Cookouts

Summer Cookouts.

Summer is here and the weather is perfect for a delicious cookout, bring out the grill, some cold drinks, and impress your friends with your outdoor cooking abilities while you enjoy this special day.

Fourth of July Safety Tips for Summer Cookouts:

  • Never leave your grill unattended.

  • Keep children and pets away from the hot grill.

  • Place your grill out in the open, away from flammable objects like tree branches and curtains.

Fourth-of-July-Safety-How-to-Celebrate-Safe-and-Fun-Swimming-Boating-Tubing

Swimming, Boating, Tubing, and Other Water Activities

July is one of the hottest months of the year, so it is no surprise we love to cool down either in a pool, tubing down a river, spending the day at the beach or going for a boat ride. Water activities are one of the best ways to create fun memories of summer.

Fourth of July Safety Tips for Water Activities:

  • Always keep an eye on the kids when you are close to water.

  • If you are on a boat, make sure everyone on board is wearing a Coast Guard approved life jacket.

  • Before going into the water at the beach or a river check for warning signs posted by the authorities.

  • Wear sunscreen and drink plenty of fluids.

  • Don’t dive head first into rivers or pools if you are not sure how deep they are.

Fourth-of-July-Safety-How-to-Celebrate-Safe-and-Fun-picnics-block-parties

Picnics and Block Parties

Few things are more American than gathering with neighbors to share a meal, 4th of July picnics and neighborhood block parties are a staple of American tradition. Organize a potluck lunch, sit on lawn chairs, have a drink with your neighbors and relax in good company.

Fourth of July Safety Tips for Picnics:

  • Stay in the shade as much as possible.

  • Keep hydrated.

  • Store food in coolers; remember the hot weather accelerated the spoiling process of uncooked food.

  • Check for ticks; summer is tick season, and these pesky little critters can carry diseases like Lyme Disease and West Nile Virus.

  • Wear insect repellent.

Fourth-of-July-Safety-How-to-Celebrate-Safe-and-Fun-fire-works

Fireworks

It wouldn’t be a 4th of July celebration without a firework display. Attending a local firework show is the best way to end a fun packed day, arrive early and claim the perfect spot to view the show, and marvel at the beauty and artistry of these professional displays.

Fourth of July Safety Tips for Fireworks:

  • Leave the firework display to the professionals. Texas law prohibits private citizens from using, selling, or possessing fireworks.

  • If you have small children, it is best to cover their ears with noise cancelling headphones to prevent damage to their tender ears.

Keep pets at home in a safe place where they won’t be able to escape, harm themselves or others due to the stress caused by fireworks.

Take Care of Yourself and Your Loved Ones.

Have a Safe and Fun 4th of July from All of Us at Altus Emergency Centers!
