California Nurse Wins a Prescription for Relaxation

San Mateo, CA, August 11, 2015 – RN Amanda Cooper gives 110 percent for her patients, but soon she’ll be “giving in” to a relaxing, luxurious getaway at the world-famous Chocolate Spa at The Hotel Hershey® in Hershey, Pennsylvania. Amanda is the latest winner of California Casualty’s “Give A Nurse A Break” contest. A co-worker and her husband will be joining Amanda and her husband in enjoying an all-expense paid, three day trip, which includes chocolate massages and other special treatments at the spa. 

“I can’t believe this is happening; I never win anything,” said Amanda.

Amanda provides care in the very busy emergency department at Sutter Amador Hospital in Jackson, California, where she has worked for six years.  “I enjoy helping others but sometimes we get so busy with our jobs that we sometimes forget that what we do is very hard work and important to a lot of people.” 

She and her husband are insured with California Casualty and noticed the “Give A Nurse A Break” contest on the company’s Facebook page. Her name was picked from more than 30,000 entries nationwide. 

“Those in the nursing profession work incredibly hard for their patients,” said California Casualty Sr. Vice President Mike McCormick. “We want to let them know how much we appreciate the care and healing they give, often under stressful conditions.”

Past winners include:

·         Joyce, RN, Naperville, Illinois

·         Lisa, LPN, Victoria, Texas

·         Evan, RN, Birmingham, Alabama

·         Tracie, RN, Farmington, Connecticut

Entries for the next California Casualty “Give A Nurse A Break” trip to the Chocolate Spa at The Hotel Hershey® are now being taken at

Located in the Sierra foothills town of Jackson, CA, Jackson Rancheria Casino Resort is owned by the Jackson Rancheria Band of Miwuk Indians, a federally recognized Indian tribe. A sovereign government, the Rancheria is dedicated to developing projects that not only enhance the tribe’s ability to remain self-reliant, but also reflect a commitment to be a good neighbor.

Jackson – Sutter Amador Hospital provided tours of its facility to 10 UC Davis School of Medicine first-year medical students during orientation on Friday, July 24, for the school’s Rural-PRIME program.

The students also toured Sutter Plymouth Health Center, visiting with Dan Fields, M.D., and Sutter Medical Foundation Amador Regional Manager Colleen Riordan, R.N. Anne Platt, CEO, Sutter Amador Hospital, led the tour of Sutter Amador Hospital. Other presentations were provided by Sutter Medical Group Internist Robert Hartmann, M.D., Sutter Medical Foundation, and Maureen Funk from the Amador County Council of Tourism. 

Rural-PRIME (Programs in Medical Education), an innovative UC Davis School of Medicine program, is designed to increase access to health care in rural areas of California. The program produces physician leaders who are trained in and committed to helping California’s medically underserved communities.

Most rural areas around the state face the challenge of recruiting and retaining enough primary care physicians to serve the needs of their communities. Rural-PRIME was specifically developed to address the health care challenges frequently found in less populated or remote areas of the state.

”Our seven-year relationship with Rural-PRIME has familiarized medical students with our patients and communities,” said Dr. Hartmann. “This experience shows them that interesting, quality medical care can take place outside of the big city.”

Students will spend between 4-8 weeks immersed in rural clinical settings, experiencing some of the unique challenges and benefits that only those types of communities can offer.

“We are thrilled to continue this partnership with UC Davis,” said Platt. “Being a training and teaching site for future physicians is a win-win for us. Our physicians and staff get to work with bright medical students who are passionate about health care. In return, these students will experience the unique and special qualities of rural medicine. We think they will find their time here fulfilling, and we are especially hopeful that it will lead them to practice in a rural community some day, maybe even here in Amador County.”

Local Sutter Amador Hospital-affiliated staff members who participate in the Rural-PRIME program as preceptors for the students include: Dan Fields, M.D., family medicine, Sutter Medical Group; Richard Buss, M.D., family medicine; Thomas Bowhay, M.D. family medicine; David Stone, M.D., pediatrics, Sutter Medical Group; Lucy Miller, M.D., radiology; Phil Granchi, M.D. radiology; Paul Beatty, M.D., medical director, Emergency Department, Sutter Amador Hospital, and Robert Hartmann, M.D., internist, Sutter Medical Group.
