Windom Area Hospital recognized by March of Dimes

Windom Area Hospital is being recognized for reducing the number of elective inductions and Cesarean deliveries performed before 39 completed weeks of pregnancy. March of Dimes says this will give more babies a healthy start in life.

“We’re proud of our expert team of physicians and nurses who saw this opportunity to improve care in our community and put in place policies to avoid scheduling elective inductions or Cesarean deliveries before 39 weeks of pregnancy, except when medically necessary” said Kari Witte, Director of Patient Care at Windom Area Hospital.

Windom Area Hospital is one of 63 hospitals in the state to receive this recognition.

"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!
Did you know that in the last 12 months 94,687 lab tests were performed at our hospital? The most common tests include:
1. Complete Blood Count (CBC)
2. Urinanalysis
3. Basic metabolic panel (which include glucose and electrolyte levels)

Finding Fitness in the Spring and Summer
Need a little motivation?
Whether you’re just getting started or want to build upon your current routine, we’ve got tips and ideas for you.

- If you’re an exercise newbie, skip over more complicated and/or expensive types of exercise and choose something simple. Walking is a great choice!
- If you’re already in the exercise groove, remember to mix up your routine. Our bodies adapt quickly, so be sure to challenge yourself by varying the speed, duration, and type
of exercise you do.
- Remember to include stretching and strength training to help improve your muscle tone and flexibility.
- Too hot and humid to go outside? That’s your opportunity to try an indoor workout. Check out an exercise DVD from the library or search YouTube and get fit at home. You can also check out the Wellness Center at the Windom Area Hospital!
- Remember that chores, yard work and gardening count as exercise. Put a little extra effort into vacuuming, washing the car, or mowing the lawn to get your heart pumping!
