Amerimed Hospital comes to Rocky Point, Mexico

Contributor:  Dr. Ron Ridgway

April 2014

On April 12th, Judy and I had the pleasure of meeting with Dr González to discuss the changes coming to his hospital over the next several months. Work is currently underway and Dr. González expects most everything in place in “about 6 months”. Both he and Amerimed are anxious to move as quickly as possible.

In the past couple of weeks the purchase of Sandy Beach Medical Center by the Amerimed company to establish Hospital Amerimed Puerto Peñasco was completed after months of negotiation. The result is Dr. González becoming Medical Director  and co-owner of the new hospital which will continue to operate during the extensive architectural changes to the existing building bringing in new and advanced  CTSCAN radiology equipment, surgical equipment, expanding emergency rooms and adding treatment rooms  along with surgery and hospital recovery rooms and actual hospital rooms so patients don’t have to be transported elsewhere unless absolutely needed for the patients well being.

Highly trained staff members are in place now and new medical personal will be arriving very soon which will allow 3 fully staffed medical shifts to operate the hospital 24/7 year around. There will be medical doctor specialists in cardiology, gastroenterology, orthopedics, radiology, plastic surgery and several other areas. This hospital will have all the staff and equipment for these doctors to perform their specialty work so patients won’t have to be transported to Hermosillo or other large cities, it can be done here in Rocky Point.

Amerimed will be accepting most of the major medical insurance companies from the U.S. and Mexico and the policy Dr. González offered is being reworked and will be available at the hospital. This is outstanding, especially for those of us that live here as well as for visiting guests to Rocky Point. There will be complete information coming from Amerimed related to insurance coverage along with basic medical costs in the very near future.

For those interested take a look at http://www.amerimed.com.mx/eng/

Be sure to check often as updates will be coming as the hospital development moves forward.

Blue Footed Booby Birds 25 miles from Rocky Point at Bird Island

Photo: Blue footed Booby Birds spotted at Bird Island, about 25 miles southeast of Rocky Point, Puerto Penasco, Sonora Mexico

 Rare bird species spotted at Bird Island.  Next time you visit contact ECO-FUN1 for a tour to Bird Island.  

Per National Geographic-Blue-footed boobies are aptly named, and males take great pride in their fabulous feet. During mating rituals, male birds show off their feet to prospective mates with a high-stepping strut. The bluer the feet, the more attractive the mate.

These boobies live off the western coasts of Central and South America. The Galápagos Islands population includes about half of all breeding pairs of blue-footed boobies.

Like other boobies, blue-foots nest on land at night. When day breaks, they take to the air in search of seafood, sometimes fishing in cooperative groups. They may fly far out to sea while keeping a keen eye out for schools of small fish, such as anchovies. When their prey is in sight, these seabirds utilize the physical adaptations that make them exceptional divers. They fold their long wings back around their streamlined bodies and plunge into the water from as high as 80 feet (24 meters). Blue-footed boobies can also dive from a sitting position on the water's surface.

Blue-footed boobies also use their webbed feet to cover their young and keep them warm. When a typical brood of one to three chicks hatches, both parents feed and care for them.

All half-dozen or so booby species are thought to take their name from the Spanish word "bobo." The term means "stupid," which is how early European colonists may have characterized these clumsy and unwary birds when they saw them on land—their least graceful environment.

Puerto Peñasco's Tourism Growth Continues in Summer

Puerto Peñasco's Tourism Growth Continues in Summer

The beaches of Puerto Peñasco have seen a 5% growth in tourism from the U.S. during the month of July, which could close out with nearly 280,000 visitors.
According to info provided by the local Convention and Visitors Bureau (OCV), July has had 70 to 75% occupancy rates at beachfront hotels, with many weekends reporting to be completely full. This represents a 5% increase over the same period last year.
OCV President Héctor Vázquez del Mercado notes this coming weekend is important for tourism in Puerto Peñasco, with thousands of visitors from the U.S. enjoying their remaining vacation weeks, along with numerous Mexican tourists principally from Baja California, Chihuahua, and Sonora.
Vázquez del Mercado indicated July numbers show about 75% of tourists coming from abroad, with the remaining coming directly from Mexico.  He added the percentage of national tourism will begin to grow this coming week as Mexican families recover from graduation costs.
During August, the majority of tourists to the area tend to be from Mexicali and Tijuana in Baja California, as well as from the state of Chihuahua and areas across Sonora, with an expected 50% hotel occupancy rate which represents about 200,000 visitors for the month.

Supermoon in rocky Point - Coldwell Banker By the Sea

Missed the Supermoon In July? There's Another In August

If overcast skies spoiled your view of the much hyped July 12th 'Supermoon', no problemo, amigo. You'll have not one, but two more opportunities this year to gaze at, photograph, or otherwise enjoy the phenomenon of a Supermoon.  The photos in this story are of the July Supermoon, taken by our friend and local photographer, Tony Ballesteros, who endured through the wee hours of July 11th to capture these awesome images. Thanks Tony!  
What is a supermoon?
The label supermoon was coined over 30 years ago by Richard Nolle -an astrologer, no less-although it didn't hit prime time usage by astronomers until just a few years ago.  No real reason why it didn't become widely used right away since Nolle's definition of a supermoon was a clear, concise description of  what astronomers call a perigee full moon or perigee new moon. Perigee simply means "near earth." Because the moon's orbit around the earth is elliptical there's a point when it is nearest the earth and a point when it's furthest from the earth.  When its near point coincides with a new or full moon, that is a Supermoon. Nolle even defined the distance to the earth that would qualify a moon as a supermoon. He said that a supermoon is a new or full moon which occurs with the moon at or near (within 90%) its closest approach to Earth in a given orbit. The distances are measured from the center of the moon to the center of the Earth. That generous 10% leeway allows for many supermoons by definition, anywhere from 4 to 6 per year.
In fact, this year, counting the July 12th Supermoon we've already had three of them. The first two were new moons that occurred on January 1st and January 30th. Of course we couldn't see them as new moons occur when the moon is aligned between the earth and the sun. We still have two more  full moons to go which will be Supermoons according to Nolle's definition. The next one is on August 10th and the final, and fifth of the year is on September 9th, another full moon. The full moon of next Sunday, August 10th is actually the one that will be closest to the earth and will appear as the largest and brightest. It will also cause the largest surges in the earth's tides. (Full and new moons always affect our tides because our planet receives extra gravitational pulls from both the sun and the moon.   
So, how close will the August 10th Supermoon be to the Earth? On that night the moon will be 356,896 kilometers from Earth. For reference, when it is the furthest from Earth the distance is 406,567 kilometers, a difference of 49,671 kilometers.
So, get your cameras, binoculars, telescopes...or beach chairs and enjoy the bright moon on Saturday the 10th. If you're a meteor shower watcher, please note the supermoon will fade out all but the brightest of meteors from the Perseid showers that happen this time each year.
Even though they don't have much to do with Supermoons, we'll leave you with these final two interesting facts that you may not know about our earth and the moon:  
Did you know that in our orbit around the sun, we're hurtling through space at nearly 67,000 mph? At the same time our planet is spinning around in circles at over 1000 mph! Almost makes you dizzy, doesn't it?
Did you ever wonder why we always see the same side of the moon from here on Earth? It is simply because the rotation period of the moon is identical to its orbital period (29.5 days). Hence we always see the same face of the Moon!

Pet safety in the summer - Coldwell Banker By the Sea


Higher temperatures may translate into more time spent outdoors, but for pet owners, they can also mean more visits to the veterinarian. "In the summer, we see more skin and ear infections and an increase in injuries overall," says Sandra Sawchuk, DVM, at the University of Wisconsin, Madison.

Here's how to protect your pet during the warmer months:

Use Sunscreen, Please!

  • Shield delicate skin. Skin cancer is the most common form of cancer in dogs and second most common in cats. Even though fur provides some protection from the sun, you should apply a pet sunblock every 3 to 4 hours to the least hair-covered spots: bellies on dogs (especially ones who like to lie on their backs) and ears and around eyes on cats, which are also areas where malignant tumors are likely to show up. (No need to apply sunscreen directly on fur.) Use products made specifically for pets, such as Epi-Pet Sun Protector Sunscreen ($18; epi-pet.com), which is safe for dogs—ingredients such as zinc oxide can be toxic to pets.
  • Keep coats long. While it may seem logical to cut your pet's coat short, resist the urge. "If hair—even long hair—is brushed and not matted, it provides better circulation and helps her regulate her body temperature," says Rene Carlson, DVM, president of the American Veterinary Medical Association. (Check out these three tips for grooming pets at home.)
  • Soothe burns safely. If your pet does get burned, apply a thin layer of pure aloe vera twice daily to soothe the irritated area. (Check the brand with your vet first, for pet safety.)

Play It Cool

  • Walk with caution. Don't walk your dog during the day's highest heat and humidity, which is usually between 1 and 4 PM. This is especially important for dogs with short snouts, such as bulldogs, who can't pant as efficiently in humid weather due to their narrowed nostrils and windpipes.
  • Never leave her in the car. Even if windows are cracked, the interior temp can rise by 19°F in as little as 7 minutes. On a hot day, this can be deadly. (Check out this simple guide to driving with dogs.)
  • Look out for heat exhaustion. If your dog shows signs of heat stress—heavy panting, dry or bright red gums, thick drool, vomiting, diarrhea, or wobbly legs—don’t place her in ice cold water, which can put her into shock. Instead, move her to a cool place, drape a damp towel over her body, rewetting the cloth frequently, and get her to the vet as soon as you possibly can. A dog's normal temperature is between 100° and 103°F, so once she hits 104°F, she's in dangerous territory (106°F or higher can be fatal).
  • Keep it cool indoors. Turn on the AC in your home, especially if you'll be out of the house for several hours. If it's too warm for you, it's too warm for your pet.
