National Donate Life Month: Dan's Donation Story

April is National Donate Life Month, a month to inspire and encourage more people to register as organ, eye and tissue donors.

CHI Brings Blood Draws Back to Wibaux, MT

The 32nd Annual Wibaux Health Fair Blood Draw was held on Thursday, March 25, at the Wibaux County Fairgrounds Exhibit Hall in Wibaux, Montana.

National Donate Life Month

April is National Donate Life Month and throughout the month, CHI St. Alexius Health will create awareness about the importance of organ, tissue and eye donation.

Currently more than 3,000 people in North Dakota, South Dakota, and Minnesota are waiting for a life-saving organ transplant and the national waiting list holds the names of more than 108,000 men, women and children. Each day, 22 people die waiting for a life-saving organ transplant and a new name is added to the transplant waiting list every 10 minutes. There are more people waiting for a life-saving transplant than there are donors, making it incredibly important for everyone who supports donation to register. One person can help heal up to 75 lives through organ and tissue donation. Organs that can be donated include heart, lungs, liver, kidneys, pancreas and intestine. Tissues that can be donated to save and heal lives include skin, bone, veins, heart valves, connective tissue and eyes.

National Wear Red Day is Friday, February 5, 2021. We encourage our staff and our communities to wear red to raise awareness about cardiovascular disease and save lives.

Dickinson Welcomes New Orthopaedic Robot

CHI St. Alexius Health Dickinson is the first hospital in western North Dakota to offer Stryker’s Mako SmartRobotics™ System for orthopaedic surgeries. This advancement in joint replacement surgery transforms the way total knee, partial knee and total hip replacements are performed by combining three key components into one platform that can improve patient outcomes for these procedures. “For some patients, this can mean less soft tissue damage; for others, greater bone preservation,” explains Dr. Derrick Cote, orthopedic surgeon with The Bone & Joint Center at CHI St. Alexius Health Dickinson.
