Wave of Light provides ocean of support

Wave of Light is a time for families who’ve experienced infant loss and miscarriage to share in their sorrow and support each other. Wave of Light is an international event, recognized in six countries. This year’s event was held on Sunday, Oct. 15 at St. John’s Lutheran Church in Jamestown. “Thirty years ago, if families experienced a miscarriage or infant death, they were told to forget it,” said Renae Lunde. Lunde is a registered nurse at Jamestown Regional Medical Center’s Family BirthPlace. She is also one of the event’s organizers. “Today, we encourage families to grieve in the way that best fits them.” read...

JRMC CEO: ‘Nothing in healthcare bills is good for N.D.’

JRMC CEO: ‘Nothing in healthcare bills is good for N.D.’

by K.C. DeBoer,  Jamestown Regional Medical Center President & CEO There is nothing in the new healthcare bills that is good for North Dakota. Nothing. Last week, the Senate revealed its Better Care Reconciliation Act (BCRA) of 2017. The bill was in response to the American Health Care Act (AHCA) passed by the House. Neither bill is good for North Dakota citizens. Neither bill is good for North Dakota hospitals.  When Congress passed the Affordable Care Act (ACA), also known as Obamacare, in 2008 it was flawed. But because of ACA and Medicaid expansion, 20,000 more North Dakotans have access to healthcare coverage. read...

Running of the Pink set for June 3

Cancer is the leading cause of death of Stutsman County residents ages 45-84. Because of this, and because so many residents are affected by cancer, R.M. Stoudt hosts the annual Running of the Pink each year on the first Saturday in June which, this year, falls on June 3. All proceeds benefit the No Excuses Program and the local Women’s Way Chapter for breast and cervical cancer screenings as well as education and other needs. Jamestown Regional Medical Center hosts the No Excuses program every year, in conjunction with Central Valley Health. That day, women can come in for a basic screening as well as a mammogram, all in one quick visit. Plus, if women have any financial barriers, proceeds from Running of the Pink cover those needs. No Excuses helped 14 women at its last event in November. read...

Early detection offers hope

Alzheimer’s and dementia can be intimidating diseases to struggle with, and for many people, it’s often caught too late. Jamestown Regional Medical Center’s Speech Therapist Becca Gussiaas, is hoping to change that with a new service she is offering: Free memory screenings for people concerned about Alzheimer’s and dementia. Early detection for Alzheimer’s and dementia is key. Although dementia and Alzheimer’s share similar symptoms, dementia is not a specific disease, but a broad term describing a wide range of mental process disorders, such as memory loss, personality changes and impaired reasoning. Alzheimer’s is a specific type of progressive dementia with no known cure. According to Alz.org, Alzheimer’s is the number one cause of dementia in adults, with 1 in 9 adults over 65 suffering from it. read...
