Windom Area Hospital Welcomes Dr. Yusuf
Dr. AJ Yusuf will join the medical staff at Sanford Mt. Lake and Sanford Windom Clinics starting March 1st. Windom Area Hospital would like to join Sanford in welcoming Dr. Yusef to our community. As a family medicine provider, Dr. Yusuf will see patients at the Windom Area Hospital if admitted as inpatients.

Family medicine is special to Dr. Yusuf because he loves the opportunity it provides to see patients from infancy to geriatrics. He also states in a recent video interview that, “continuity of care makes family medicine very special, there is a deeper physician and patient relationship.” He also notes that he looks forward to having shared decision making between the patient and himself, and likes the fact that family medicine has a focus on preventative medicine.

AJ Yusuf, MD, received his medical degree in 2011 from the University of Nebraska Medical Center. He completed his family medicine residency at the University of Iowa Hospitals and Clinics. Dr. Yusuf came to the area from Sanford Worthington and is board certified in family medicine

Construction Update
Steel currently being erected
In one month’s time our facility should look very different on the outside, with noticeable differences on the inside. Bricking on the new building is scheduled to be started on the first Monday of March (3 weeks away!).

Steel has begun to be erected. In the picture you’ll construction crews from Kraus-Anderson erecting steel cross-beams.

Inside, we have begun work on reconfiguring the current nurse's station, nurse report room, conference room and offices.

Also, a medical gas system will be routed from our boiler room to the new building area, which will cause some disruption in our hallways.

Please be patient as we work through this process!

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 Sanford and the Center for Disease Control (CDC):

1. All patients are being asked travel questions upon first contact with WAH Staff.

2. Patients are also screened for a fever of 100.4 or above and other physical symptoms including headache, weakness, muscle pain, vomiting, diarrhea, abdominal pain or hemorrhage.

If a patient may be a risk, the staff follow a recommended protocol including isolating the patient, implementing a notification chain, and wearing protective gear.

The process has also be incorporated into our electronic medical record system, to ensure staff and patient safety.
