Rotary Healthcare Humanitarian of the year- Wendy Yamaguchi

The Rotary Club of Kauai has selected Wendy Yamaguchi to receive the Humanitarian Award in Healthcare for Kauai.
Wendy Yamaguchi, Healthcare Humanitarian of the Year, Laurie Yoshida, Assistant District Governor, Tyler Chihara, President of the Rotary Club of Kauai.

Wendy has been with Wilcox Memorial Hospital since 1984. She originally began as an admitting clerk in the Emergency Department, and then later in the Medical-Surgical Unit. Inspired by the Registered Nurses she worked with, she decided to return to school. She graduated with her nursing degree in 1995 and eventually became the Charge Nurse in the Medical-Surgical Unit for many years.

Currently, she works in Same Day Surgery as a self-motivated, thoughtful, experienced registered nurse. Wendy always has a smile and a kind word for everyone. She is focused on providing exceptional care for her patients, and is a role model for newer nurses as well as her peers.

Wendy was introduced to medical missions by a Wilcox anesthesiologist, Dr. Michael Johnston, who has volunteered many times with Rotaplast, a project to repair cleft lips and palates for children in need worldwide. She was inspired by the photos Dr. Johnston would bring back from his medical missions.

Wendy’s first medical mission was with Dr. Sharon Ayabe to Indonesia. She just returned from Thailand where she took care of very sick people who normally have no access to healthcare under the worst of conditions. She did this with love and in spite of any risk to herself. Wendy has expressed a feeling of self-fulfillment in being able to provide simple medical care to underpriviledged sections of the world.

Wendy is a wonderful asset for healthcare in our community on Kauai.

Aqua bills itself as a hip hop/rock/tech club with multi levels on which to party. There are giveaways galore, including trips to Vegas. (Note this is always subject to change as promotions change on a regular basis.) This one falls into the more upscale range with VIP activities. Dress is casual chic. Check out their Web site for dressing options. For example, they don't allow baseball caps or sandals. It is for that reason that everybody who works a forklift should go by way of a forklift training course. These machines have the ability to help stock shelves, as well as help build office buildings. Working with a forklift truck whether it be on a construction site or within a distribution company can be very dangerous for the operator and for the people onsite. It is a legal requirement that the operator of the fork lift truck must go through the proper training before he or she operates the machine. Within this training it covers the essential check system of the forklift before it is used on a daily and weekly basis.
