Maple Knoll Village Opens Newly Renovated Health Care Center

Maple Knoll Village, a continuing care retirement community in Springdale, opened a newly renovated Health Care Center to better serve older adults in the community.

The Maple Knoll Village Health Center, which provides health care services to residents, has been in operation since 1977. It was created to provide onsite medical services to our residents as well as allow access to health care specialists. While Maple Knoll Communities has undergone vast transformation in its long history, the commitment to provide state-of-the-art care through their services and caring staff has remained constant. They began to see that there was a real need to update the clinic from its original 1970s plans to a newly renovated area that could better serve more than 700 residents living at Maple Knoll Village.

Maple Knoll residents were in need of a more professional and comfortable waiting area as well as larger examination rooms with modern equipment and accessible furniture. Physicians were in dire need of increased working space and more functional training space for the University of Cincinnati students and fellows. Overall, Maple Knoll residents needed to have enhanced access to the University of Cincinnati health services and staff in the clinical area.

Renovations allowed for them to expand exam rooms and integrate electronic charting area, accessible exam tables, a hospitality station, creating handicap accessible restrooms, new training and conference spaces and more. The renovation also includes new aesthetic features throughout.

One thing that has remained consistent over the years is the existence of top notch physicians and caregivers on the campus. The University of Cincinnati Physicians have been present at Maple Knoll for more than 30 years serving residents in numerous capacities. This team was led by Dr. Gregg Warshaw, an internationally recognized physician of gerontology at the University of Cincinnati, College of Medicine. Recognized by Cincinnati Magazine as one of the best 300 physicians in Cincinnati, Warshaw was an important partner of the Maple Knoll family from 1985 until his retirement in 2014. Through the Geriatric Fellowship program at the University of Cincinnati, his team of professionals is on site five days a week to ensure the best quality of care for our residents.

The naming of The Gregg Warshaw, M.D. Health Center is a fitting tribute to a man who has played such an important part in the history of gerontology for the past 30 years. He is a tremendous example of giving back to the community with unparalleled levels of care and dedication.
More than 140 attendees were in attendance to help mark an exciting new era of health care for the facility and celebrate the generosity of those that made the renovation possible.

WMKV Radio brings Harry James Orchestra to Music Hall Ballroom

On Tuesday, October 13, from 7-10:00 p.m., the legendary Harry James Orchestra will fill historic Music Hall Ballroom with music from the swing era and beyond. The Harry James Orchestra, led by Fred Radke, performs a one-night only dance and concert as part of WMKV Public Radio’s 20th Anniversary celebration. The three-hour dance and concert will benefit public radio WMKV 89.3FM which is simulcast on 89.9FM WLHS. Tickets are $30 ($35 day of show) and can be purchased at the Aronoff Center and Music Hall Ticket Offices, by calling (513)621-2787, or online at http://www.cincinnatiarts.org. Discount parking for $3.00 is also available.

“The Harry James Orchestra is known for being one of the best swing dance bands on tour,” says WMKV station director George Zahn. “Dancers of all ages fill the floor at their concerts, and we plan on Cincinnati’s dancers showing up in force and filling Music Hall Ballroom’s 22,000 square-foot dance floor.”

The Harry James Orchestra is led by trumpeter Fred Radke. A conductor, composer, arranger and recording artist with his own Swingin’ Big Band, Radke played lead trumpet under Harry James himself, a “dream come true” for the then young musician. In 1989, six years after James’ death, the Harry James Estate and Columbia Artists asked Radke to lead the Harry James Orchestra for a 50th anniversary concert. He has been leading the orchestra ever since.

In the words of Harry James, “Band leaders must be like automobile manufacturers before the war. They must be bringing out new models all the time. We have to vary our programs, playing sweet numbers and jump numbers, and we have to play them different ways.” This philosophy still drives today’s Harry James Orchestra, which tours throughout the United States and Canada. Radke also produced and recorded classic Harry James Orchestra hits in a four-volume set entitled Reminiscing, featuring Radke and his Swingin’ Big Band.

The Harry James Orchestra concert for WMKV 89.3FM Public Radio is made possible by the support of Mercedes Benz of Ft. Mitchell, MyMedicareQuestion.com and ArtsWave.
