And tonight, cast members from NBC’s “Chicago Fire” also will wear Vikon surgeon’s headlights when that show airs at 9 p.m. on WVTM/Channel 13 in Birmingham.This is the Vikon ONE Headlit as it appears in the Vikon Surgical brochure.
Linda Klein, a registered nurse who is a the medical adviser for “Grey’s Anatomy,” discovered the Vikon headlight after Dempsey told her he needed something “a little more modern-looking” to wear on the show, Bruce Hoadley, president of Vikon Surgical tells AL.com.
“So that’s how it got started,” Hoadley says. “She went on the internet and saw a couple of our advertisements and then showed it to Patrick Dempsey, who liked it. At that point, she called our office and asked if we could ship one out for him to see. We have a (sales) rep in LA, and he went and met with the producer and also met with Patrick Dempsey, who looked at it and liked it.’’

Thoughts and prayers out to the Dempsey Family, we are all saddened by the passing of Amanda Dempsey.
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE March 25, 2014
Lewiston, Maine – “The entire Central Maine Medical family mourns the passing of Amanda Dempsey,” said Peter Chalke, President and CEO of Central Maine Healthcare. Amanda Dempsey was both a great lady and a determined fighter who displayed tremendous courage, class and grace during her long battle with cancer.”
“Patrick Dempsey’s experience of dealing with his mother’s illness while living in California led to the creation of The Patrick Dempsey Center for Cancer Hope & Healing. In 2007, the Dempsey Family approached Central Maine Medical Center in Lewiston with the idea of creating a local cancer support organization. Amanda had received cancer treatment at CMMC, and the family wished to not only help other families affected by cancer, but also give back to their local community. The Patrick Dempsey Center for Cancer Hope & Healing was founded in 2008 by Amanda’s children, Patrick, Mary and Alicia, in honor of Amanda, and in partnership with CMMC.
The Dempsey Center continues to be an important part of the family’s journey – giving back to others, sharing in strength, and creating a caring, warm and healing environment. The Center provides free cancer support, education and integrative medicine services to anyone impacted by cancer, regardless of where treatment is received. The Center had over 16,000 service contacts in person or by phone during 2013.
“Amanda’s passing has only made us more resolute in our mission, and we will continue to expand and grow our services and share her legacy with the world,” said Dempsey Center Executive Director Wendy Tardif. “The Dempsey Center’s Healing Garden will be named in Amanda’s Honor, and though physically she is no longer with us, we know she will continue to be a source of quiet strength and unwavering perseverance at the Dempsey Center and Dempsey Challenge. Our hearts are heavy, but they are also full as we realize the thousands of lives Amanda touched.”
