Resumption of Elective Procedures
 
 
 
Rugby ND -
Due to a lack of positive COVID-19 cases throughout the community, April 27, 2020, the Heart of America Medical Center will resume offering elective procedures to patients. This decision was made in accordance with federal and state guidance as well as the expertise of the medical staff. In conjunction with this decision, a requirement for all staff to wear face masks has been put in place to help assure staff and patients that they will remain safe as we increase our available services to the public we serve.
In a statement from CEO, Erik Christenson, “I want to thank all of the staff for their dedication and hard work during this difficult time.  The staff are truly committed to our community and facility.  I would also like to thank the community for all of their continued support.  We have received encouragement and help in many fashions, including cloth face masks produced by the community members.  I thank all of you and ask for your continued support and prayers.“
