April Photo Spotlight: Stacy Jensen

shoshone-fallsThis month’s photographer spotlight is on Stacy Jensen, Systems Coordinator in Human Resources. Stacy’s photo was selected for the month of April in our calendar.

Stacy’s dramatic photo was captured while kayaking on the Snake River near the base of Shoshone Falls. The falls are commonly referred to as ‘The Niagara of the West’. In fact, they are 45 feet taller than Niagara Falls! It’s easier to see the falls from the visitor center and scenic overlooks near the top, but Stacy opted for 7-mile paddle from nearby Centennial Park to see them from below.

Beautiful photo, Stacy! We are excited to see many more photos from you and hope to see them in this year’s staff photo contest and calendar!


Huntsman Hometown Heroes

Guest post by Tyler Ellis, PT, DPT from the Sandy, Utah clinic.

I recently joined a group called the Huntsman Hometown Heroes. We run every week, training for races to support individuals with cancer. Its a really awesome group and we often dedicate our runs to specific people we know affected by cancer. It really makes it more meaningful. Kendra and I are trying to raise money for the Huntsman Cancer Institute to help improve treatment and prevention. Click here to learn more.

As a Physical Therapist I often see individuals in my clinic who have been affected by cancer. Many of them have lost full function of their muscles and joints due to the effects of treatment as well as the cancer itself. My job is to help them regain as much function as possible. It saddens me when I see them continue to have difficulty in their everyday life as they are unable to reach the level of activity they once enjoyed.

As I run for the Huntsman Hometown Heroes, I think about these individuals and how the Huntsman Cancer Institute is paving the way to improve cancer prevention and treatment, and finding more effective medications to lessen the devastating side effects of cancer.

Those interested in helping me raising money for the Huntsman Cancer Institute can do so at the above link. Together we can make a difference in the lives of those affected by cancer. Thank you so much!


Share The Love Hits 100!

stl-100We are excited to announce that last week we hit our goal of 100 Share the Love referrals – three and a half months ahead of schedule! While it is always fun to set a number goal and achieve it, it’s most fun to know that we helped each one of those 100 patients recover from their injuries and return to the lives they love. What a wonderful privilege to be able to serve these patients like we do!

Thank you to everyone who has referred a friend, family member or acquaintance. Your efforts have allowed these people to live happier more active lives while also supporting the growth of our company. Seriously… Thank you!
Now that we’ve seen what the Mountain Land family can do, we’re raising our sights and setting a new Share the Love referral goal. We would like to see if we can introduce another 150 friends and family members to the valuable services we offer within the next 12 months. . We would LOVE it if we could beat this new goal just like we did the last one. Let’s make it happen!

Also, be sure to keep an eye on the Share the Love referral counter on our website. You can find it on the Staff Blog and the Share the Love page. You’ll also see the top referrers underneath.

Here are a few interesting stats for the first 100 referrals:

  • Our best month was February, with 20 referrals. So far, we’re on track to blow that out of the water in March – don’t slow down now!
  • Our top Share the Love referrer was Kae Bean with a whopping 14 referrals! Amazing job, Kae!
  • Jessica Hendricks and Sari Stahl are right behind Kae with 9 and 8 referrals respectively.

Thanks again, everyone for your hard work and dedication to Mountain Land! You are really making a difference!
