Audubon County Memorial Hospital and Clinics recognize February as American Heart Month. Heart disease can lead to heart attack, stroke, heart failure, and death. The Iowa Department of Public Health (IDPH) reports that heart disease is the leading cause of death in Iowa and nationwide.
Month: February 2022
This pandemic has touched us all. Many of us know someone who has been affected by COVID-19. Whether this virus has been in your home, at work or in your community, the consequences have had a ripple effect on how we currently live our lives.
The Audubon County Memorial Hospital and Clinics staff donated to the Random Acts of Kindness day project sponsored by the ACMH Employee’s Club. On February 17th, the items that were collected were delivered to residents of the Friendship Home and Exira Care Center. Staff donated a total of $125.00 which was matched by the ACMH Employee’s Club for a total of $250.00. The money was used to purchase more items like large print crosswords, soft tissues, crafts, socks, candy, nail polish and puzzles in addition to all the items staff personally donated.
Cooner said, “To determine the award, the Chartis Center used the Hospital Strength Index, which assesses performance in eight areas which are inpatient market share, outpatient market share, quality, outcomes, patient perspective, cost, charges, and financial efficiency.”
