Ebola threat hightens WAH preparedness
While an ebola outbreak is not likely in our area, WAH is preparing for the potential threat by taking several steps.

All patients presenting at the hospital will be screened by staff using the following protocol, prescribed by the Center for Disease Control (CDC):

1. Patient is screened for a fever of 101.5 or above.

2. If #1 is present, patient is screened for other physical symptoms including headache, weakness, muscle pain, vomiting, diarrhea, abdominal pain or hemorrhage.

3. If #1 and #2 are present, the patient is asked about travel to an Ebola-affected area in the last 21 days.

If all three are present, staff follow a recommended protocol including isolating the patient, implementing a notification chain, and wearing protective gear.

Walk raises nearly $10,000
The Tammy Hall Breast Health Walk gets great community support
The 4th Annual Tammy Hall Breast Health Walk was a great success in 2014!

Nearly 250 walkers participated, with many more in the community supporting the event through buying raffle tickets, business window decorating, shirt purchases, etc.

The event raised nearly $10,000 which will go into the Breast Health Fund and 10% will be donated to breast cancer research. The Breast Health Fund is designated to provide financial support to those facing breast health issues, both cancer and preventative measures.

You can still support the Breast Health Fund by purchasing event t-shirts for $15 at the hospital. While supplies last, each shirt purchased will come with a free goodie bag!

Construction Update
Driveways Re-routed
All traffic coming into the hospital will now be rerouted onto the new driveway. Please use extreme caution!

The employee lot is finished and employees will continue around the hospital to park in the back.

All patients and visitors will take a sharp left and access the current parking lots through the old employee lot.

Construction crews are working hard on getting the driveways finished so work can begin on the new helipad and building.

"Did you Know" Campaign
In a survey of our community during the summer of 2013, 51% of Cottonwood County Residents listed the Windom Area Hospital as the first hospital or clinic that comes to mind. Location was the primary reason for the 'top of mind' honor. The survey also told us that there are services and information about the Hospital our residents are unfamiliar with. Here at the Hospital, we want our community to not only think of us for convenience, but to know us for the services we offer, great employees we have on staff, and our commitment to providing excellent healthcare to our community.

That's why we are embarking on a "Did you Know" social media campaign. Each week we will be posting new "Did you Know" facts here on our website and on Facebook. Take this chance to learn something interesting about your local Hospital!

Did You Know Fact!
We donít want influenza to spread to our patients! Did you know we had 98% of our staff get their influenza vaccine last flu season and earned a blue ribbon from the Minnesota Department of Health FluSafe program!
