The North Dakota Long Term Care Association Caregiver of the Year Program offers residents and family members the opportunity to express their appreciation for caregivers throughout the state. This year Haaland Estates received three nominations for individuals whose positive impact enhanced the quality of life for residents in their care.

Lisa Hanson was nominated by Diane Leier and Simon Sattler for always having great ideas to help keep the residents active and for going above and beyond for all residents. Bree Anna Larson was nominated by Rose Hager for helping her to feel welcome and always inviting her to join in on the activities. Carol Natwick was nominated by Leo Roy Rieger for being a hard worker, always sincere and for being the best nurse he has ever had.

The Caregiver Award Program honors and recognizes individuals working in the long term care profession who substantially enhance the quality of life for residents in North Dakota long term care facilities.

HAMC awarded Scrubs Camp of Year

Heart of America Medical Center has been selected to receive the "R-COOL-Health Scrubs Camp of the Year" award. This award is presented to the grantee that hosted the Scrubs Camp deemed top camp of the year based on the overall combination of a number of factors including professions students are exposed to, innovative and interactive activities, collaboration of community partners and local health care professionals, and organization of the camp.

"We are so excited to receive the Scrubs Camp of the Year Award!" said Dani Schell, HAMC marketing coordinator. "The 12 departments that participated this year did an outstanding job engaging the students. We were also fortunate to have Dakota Eye Institute and North Star Criticair participate in our camp."

HAMC hosted 49 Rugby eighth-graders this year. The students were split into four groups and had the opportunity to experience what it would be like to work as a healthcare professional. Each of the four groups toured and participated in hands-on activities in the clinic, hospital and care center. Their day ended with a visit from the helicopter from North Star Criticair, which landed on the HC pad outside the acute hospital entrance.

The award will be presented at the Awards Banquet of the 2014 Dakota Conference on Rural and Public Health. The social and banquet will be held June 19 at the Alerus Conference Center in Grand Forks. Dr. Hubert Seiler will be given his Rural Health Practitioner of the Year Award during this ceremony as well.
