Fish Oil—Could One Be Heart Healthy For You?

The world of health supplements can be daunting.  This is especially true of omega 3 supplements and fish oil.  We’ve all heard that we need an omega-3 supplement for our health but determining which to choose can be overwhelming with too many options.

Diabetes Self-Management Education Program

Veterans Memorial Hospital’s Diabetes Self-Management Education Program will again be offering another free, educational program on “Diabetes Prevention” out in the area communities served by Veterans Memorial Hospital.  This time the diabetes staff will be hosting a program in the community of Monona, on Monday, September 29, at the Monona Community Center from 6:00-7:30 p.m.  Teresa Myers, RN, Certified Diabetes Educator, and Shelby Byrnes, RD/LD, Dietitian, will be teaching all those attending how to reduce the risk of getting Type 2 diabetes.  

2014 Veterans Memorial Hospital Survey

We were recently awarded the Press Ganey GUARDIAN OF EXCELLENCE Award for our high emergency services patient satisfaction scores for the 4th year in a row and for our high inpatient satisfaction scores this year as well. Now we are asking for your help to make us better! 

We are busy developing our strategic plan and need to hear back from our community what we are doing well and where we need to improve.  

Please take a few minutes and complete this survey.
