Meet Max and Mary: Helping hospital patients on their ‘ruff’ days

There are numerous types of therapy out there. But there’s one that might be the paw-fect one for you. Pet therapy has been scientifically linked to reducing blood pressure, anxiety, depression, and it can even overall lower your physical pain. Unfortunately, patients aren’t allowed to bring in their own pets–but that’s where Max and Mary come in.

This dynamic duo has been an inseparable team for almost 3 and half years now and have zeroed in on one shared goal. Director of Activities for Transitional Care Unit Mary Dunn says, “To brighten someone’s day because who wouldn’t be excited to see a four legged friend for a visit.”

Addressing Domestic Violence as a Health Crisis in North Dakota

Last year, over 6,000 domestic violence incidents were reported to crisis intervention centers in North Dakota. But the number is actually much higher, because only about half of the people who experience domestic and sexual violence ever report it. This is not a new problem, and back in 2015, several CHI St. Alexius Health facilities noticed a serious intimate partner violence problem. So they formed the CHI North Dakota Violence Prevention Program to address it head-on.
