Our Goal Is To Care For You!
Well, as I look out the window it’s hard to believe that all the leaves have fallen along with the daily temperatures. Soon we will be enjoying basketball in the gym and skiing on the slopes. It’s also the start of the holiday season filled with parties, family gatherings, large meals, and sometimes the addition of extra pounds.
This fall our organization implemented a weight loss contest to combat the annual gathering of inches around our waistlines. The prize is a significant cash award at the end of 10 weeks of regular weigh-ins and advice from our wonderful Dietician Lori Johnson. We are about half way through the contest and so far the group has lost a total of 121 pounds. I’m very proud of all of our contestants and I can’t wait to award the winning prize to the winners.
I would encourage you to start healthy eating habits and exercise now and carry those habits through the holiday season. It’s never too late to adopt a healthier lifestyle and we are trying to lead the way as your local Healthcare provider with our own team’s health and fitness. If we are going to ask the community to lead healthier lives, we need to be willing to do the same.
I would like to welcome Dr. Kevin Owens and Dr. Tyson Steel, both specializing in Internal Medicine. They both started with us this summer and they are looking forward to serving patients in our community for years to come. They are both taking new patients and are located in our Minidoka Medical Center Rural Health Clinic.
Please enjoy the harvest and holiday season and all the blessings that it has to offer. Hopefully it can be filled with family, friends, and great experiences. Please take time to enjoy the many great things life has to offer. If you find yourself in need of medical care we are here to help.
Thank You for your interest in Minidoka Memorial Hospital
