CHI St. Alexius Health Williston transitions respiratory clinic to walk-in clinic

Residents are getting a new option for medical care, with CHI St. Alexius Health Williston announcing the opening of a new walk-in clinic. The new clinic opens on Monday April 12, but has a familiar look to it. CHI is transitioning their respiratory clinic, located at the facility behind Door 9, into a walk-in clinic with the ability to treat a variety of illnesses.

“We opened the respiratory clinic last year after COVID presented itself as a challenging aspect to our health care system,” Nurse Practitioner Anna Wolf told the Williston Herald. “Now we’re transitioning it into a walk-in, same day clinic. We’re expanding to include more things beyond respiratory illnesses.”

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.

Celebrating the Person Inside that White Coat

Improving the health of communities, one neighbor at a time. That’s at the heart of what physicians do, whether they’re catching cancer early, performing life-saving procedures or coaching more active lifestyles.

Self-Care Helps Prevent Breast Cancer

It’s also important to know your personal risk factors. Start with your family history. Your risk of breast cancer nearly doubles if you have a first-degree relative (mother, sister, daughter) who has been diagnosed with breast cancer. Other risk factors to keep on your radar include dense breasts, genetic mutations, reproductive history, personal and family history of other cancers, previous radiation therapy and simply getting older.

Talk about your provider about your personal risk factors and mammogram screening recommendations, as they vary depending on age and risk. Early detection remains your best defense against breast cancer. The five-year survival rate for localized breast cancer is 99%.
