Twice Blessed 2021

Between Nov. 15 and Dec. 31, 2021, St. Joseph's Community Health Foundation, Minot, will match up to $10,000 in donations made to HAMC's Patient Safety is Vital campaign. There's no easier way to double your donation.

What is our campaign about? The current patient monitoring systems in the Surgical Department at Heart of America Medical Center are aging out and are in need of replacement. Monitoring patients in the perioperative setting is vital. Reliable patient monitors can alert our surgical staff of early changes in a patient’s condition, allowing our surgical team to intervene before any harm comes to the patient. Currently our surgical department is having to substitute patient monitors from other areas within the department.

Your Twice Blessed gift is critical to the success of this fundraising effort. It will cost about $50,515 to purchase three new surgery monitors for the surgical department.
The Surgical Department has seen an increase in patient volumes of over 60% in the past year. We not only treat patients of HAMC and our three Johnson Clinic locations, but we also provide surgical services for Dakota Eye Clinic. Recent changes to the workflow in our surgical department have made us one of the most efficient hospital-based sites for eye surgeries.

We invite you to bless HAMC and double your gift to Patient Safety is Vital by participating in Twice Blessed. To qualify for Twice Blessed matching dollars, Patient Safety is Vital donations must be received by St. Joseph's Community Health Foundation between Nov.15 and Dec. 31, 2021.

Please donate between Nov. 15 and Dec. 31 via mail, phone or online at
