Nurses the Heart of Health Care

If you want to see care in action, follow a nurse. They know a single moment can change an entire life, so they bring exceptional training and tremendous heart to every encounter. One patient at a time, they do a world of good.

The community came together Wednesday, May 11 at the Tribune’s fourth annual “Nurses: The Heart of Health Care” luncheon to share their why's – how they were inspired by the nurses who made an impact in their lives. The event recognized 13 nurses who have excelled at providing care for patients and their families. CHI St. Alexius Health is proud to be a founding sponsor of the event, which was held at Bismarck State College's National Energy Center of Excellence.

Let’s Talk about Organ Donation

It’s not a casual conversation, but organ donation is something we should all talk about - because the need for organ donors is very real.

Consider these statistics from the Organ Procurement and Transplant Network:

More than 100,000 people are on the national transplant waiting list. Every 9 minutes another person is added to the transplant waiting list. 17 people die each day waiting for an organ transplant. Every donor can save 8 lives and improve the lives of 75 more.

In the Upper Midwest, an estimated 3,400 people are waiting for a transplant at any given time.

Patient + Provider = Perfect Number for Heart Health

Age may be just a number, but unlike age, when it comes to your ticker, numbers count.

“Knowing your four key numbers can, to a certain extent, help monitor your risk for cardiovascular disease like angina, heart attack, stroke and peripheral artery disease,” said Peerawut Deeprasertkul, MD, CHI St. Alexius Health Cardiologist.

Team Up: Let’s Beat Diabetes Together

Alarming numbers: about one in 10 Americans is diabetic, one in three is prediabetic. It’s important to watch for symptoms.

“Diabetes is definitely known to increase the risk of dementia, gum disease, dental disease and hearing loss,” said Michael Page, MD, CHI St. Alexius Health Primary Care Provider. “It has also been linked to a modest increase in certain cancer risks.”
