Catch the Vision ... Plan a Gift
My wife Marilynn and I are proud of Rice Memorial Hospital and Rice Health Foundation. We appreciate the outstanding care the Hospital provides with specialists, as well as family practitioners. This care is not just for the people in Willmar but for a large area in southwest Minnesota, all the way to the South Dakota border. Rice Health Foundation helps provide for Rice Memorial Hospital what regular funding is not able to do—some "niceties," but also some very necessary materials for Hospice, mental health, ER, dialysis, etc. This will be more and more necessary in future years as funding is squeezed down.

Spotlight on Supporters Retired Employee Donors Bev Schafer and Barb Piasecki were career nurses, and Evy Hatjistilianos was the Hospice Volunteer Coordinator at Rice Memorial Hospital. All three have generously supported programs and services at Rice, first as employees, and now in retirement. Bev retired in 2007 as the Director of Hemodialysis, aer almost 40 years. Shortly aer starting at Rice, she was asked to help with dialysis so the second patient could be added. She saw enormous changes during her four decades. Changes include transitioning from a selection committee responsible for deciding which patient could receive dialysis treatment on a single machine for 14 hours a day, to a technologically advanced 13-station unit capable of dialyzing each patient in approximately four hours. Barb retired in 2010 aer 36 years at Rice. In 1974, she began her Rice career as an Intensive Care nurse. She became a Nursing Supervisor and served in that capacity for 20 years. Barb also served as the Infection Control Nurse and worked part-time in the Emergency Room. Although major concerns about infection control have increased, Barb’s coaching on hand hygiene (good handwashing) remains unchanged today. Evy facilitated the work of Hospice volunteers for almost 20 years, until her retirement in 2012. She had many highlights throughout her career, including nominating and having one of her volunteers win national recognition as Volunteer of the Year. She is most proud of her work developing the Canine Care for the Journey, therapy dog program. is program has brought delight and unconditional love to patients of all ages and diagnoses, by simply “being there” in time of need. ese retirees supported Rice with their talents, as dedicated healthcare professionals, and with their gis to Rice Health Foundation. eir shared passion for keeping quality health care in our community has stayed strong into retirement with their continued financial support.
Rice Health Foundation is involved in many patient and staff focused projects. They are always open and receptive to suggestions from patients, community and staff—always with the goal of improving patient care whether it is equipment or education. The value of the chosen projects, with patient care as the main focus makes it especially appealing to support as a current or former employee.”
Rice has always been mindful of the advances being made in technology and the services that are important to the community. The Foundation has been instrumental in helping to provide these services, equipment and facilities. That can be seen with the placement of AEDs [automatic external defibrillators] in the community and chest compression devices in the ambulances, as well as the facility updates and addition of services at Rice Care Center."
For almost 25 years, I have believed in and have been financially supportive of the mission of Rice Hospice. From early on, the image of Rice Hospice as a “hug with many arms” has been in my heart – the team work of patients and families as they face a terminal illness. My belief in Rice Hospice was only deepened as the program cared for both of my parents as they faced terminal diagnoses and chose to die with the care of Rice Hospice.”
Rice employees are first rate! ey work as a team, both on the front lines and behind the scenes, to provide the best possible patient experience. In addition to their dedication to the work they do, employees help provide for the future of Rice by supporting the Employee Campaign each year.
At Rice Memorial Hospital, exceptional healthcare and compassion go hand in hand. Our patients express their gratitude for receiving excellent care in a variety of ways – through their kind words, smiles, letters of thanks and financial contributions.
2015 marked the final year of a three year Employee Campaign for Rice Care Center. Employees generously contributed almost $300,000 over three years, further demonstrating their commitment to quality care.
Many patients and their families contribute financially to benefit Rice Hospital and show their appreciation. e Grateful Patient Program provides an opportunity to recognize the care you or a loved one receive. A patient may honor staﬀ, a physician, an area of care, or a clinical program while making a tangible, meaningful impact on our ability to continue that care for others.
Your Gifts Make a Difference Behavioral Health Expansion e Rice Inpatient Behavioral Health expansion project was completed in 2015. is project increased the number of inpatient beds from eight to twelve, adding much needed capacity to mental health care in the region. Rice Health Foundation raised $328,421 for the expansion, from special events, gis and grants. ese funds were used for enhancing therapy services and increasing suicide prevention measures. Enhanced therapy services include expanding the exercise facility and remodeling the group therapy room. e entire unit was upgraded with the latest patient safety measures, including special sloping door panels and cordless behavioral health beds. e goal was to give patients a better experience while hospitalized and lower their risk of self-harm. “It’s a very fine line between creating an environment that’s safe yet comfortable and home-like. We have achieved that balance.” Mary Kjolsing, former Director of Behavioral Health Services
Wellness Recovery Action Plan (WRAP) is a cognitive therapy intervention used in many psychiatric settings to help patients maintain their mental health and well-being. Rice was able to implement this program with Behavioral Health inpatients in 2013, because of the generous support from Barb and Steve Ellingboe. (Pictured below) WRAP allows patients to develop their own personal plan for self-management after discharge. The selfmanagement intervention is proving to reduce psychiatric symptoms, increase hopefulness and improve quality of life. The plan helps patients notice when things are off balance in their lives, coordinate effective ways to get back to feeling better, and identify someone who can assist and support them. WRAP is used in addition to traditional treatments for mental illness.
Telestroke Services Approximately 50 patients with stroke-like symptoms have already benefitted from Telestroke, a new telemedicine service in the Emergency Room. e technology helps diagnose and treat certain types of strokes with more precision at Rice Hospital. Implementing the telestroke program was among the hospital’s care improvement goals for 2015, and with generous support from the community, it became a reality in March, 2015. Telestroke uses video conferencing technology to bring specialty stroke services to Rice. Stroke neurologists, from CentraCare Hospital, evaluate patients in the Emergency Room through special video conferencing tools. e patient, the Emergency Room doctor and the consulting neurologist can communicate in real time, at the bedside. Stroke neurologists have advanced training in stroke care, and are able to make diagnostic and treatment recommendations, to ensure the best and most timely care to patients. Prompt neurological evaluation increases the possibility that the patient may receive treatment in time to reduce disability and death resulting from a stroke. e Emergency Room at Rice Memorial Hospital sees over 100 patients each year who present with stroke symptoms. With the addition of long-distance neurology consultation made possible by telemedicine technology, many more patients are able to remain hospitalized at Rice instead of being transferred elsewhere. Before the telemedicine program was introduced, most stroke patients were transferred out of town. “The goal is to do the right thing for the patient right now and keep the patient in the community.” Dr. Ken Flowe, Chief Medical Officer
Impacting Lives ... Working Together In 2015, Rice Health Foundation provided $1,193,615 to Rice Memorial Hospital to support a variety of programs and services, as well as continuing education, advancing technology and capital equipment. This support is possible because of your donations to Rice Health Foundation designated funds and endowments. Your generosity supports the vitality and quality of care of Rice Memorial Hospital, while improving the health and well-being of the people in west central Minnesota. The Rice Health Foundation Endowment was established to provide a stable and consistent source of funds to help meet the changing needs in healthcare. Grants from the Foundation Endowment and other donor-advised and designated-purpose endowments accounted for more than $211,000 in support to the Hospital in 2015. Some of the endowment grants awarded are highlighted here. Certified Nursing Assistant Program Rice Memorial Hospital and Rice Health Foundation have partnered with Ridgewater College and Willmar Public Schools, to fund a 3-credit Nursing Assistant course at Willmar High School. Students will meet high school graduation requirements while also receiving three college credits via the Minnesota PostSecondary Enrollment Options (PSEO) program. Graduates of the class will be eligible to take the State of Minnesota exam to become Certified Nursing Assistants.
Antimicrobial Stewardship e Department of Health & Human Services continues to encourage healthcare facilities to have a viable Antimicrobial Stewardship Program to combat resistance and infectious diseases appropriately. Funding provided advanced education needed to expand and maintain the knowledge of antimicrobial stewardship in the hospital pharmacy for patients at Rice.
Medical-Surgical Registered Nurse Certification Increasingly complex patient care needs are best met when registered nurses, certified in specialty practice, provide nursing care. e Certified Medical-Surgical Registered Nurse credential is the highest standard of practice for nursing professionals, demonstrating a commitment to safe, evidence-based, holistic care which results in desired patient outcomes. Foundation support was granted for eight nurses to achieve Certified Medical-Surgical Registered Nurse credentialing.
Hemodialysis Monitors e Rice Dialysis Unit provides onsite hemodialysis to an average of 50 patients per month, with each patient dialyzing 3 – 4 times every week. Crit-Line Monitors, purchased with a Foundation grant, provide real-time monitoring of each patient’s status allowing nurses to provide optimal care, which improves patient outcomes and quality of life.
Nurse Preceptor Program e Preceptor Program is a part of an extensive nursing orientation at Rice Memorial Hospital. Once a new nurse completes basic orientation, he or she is paired with a trained Preceptor Nurse who will walk them through a detailed orientation on the nursing unit. e Preceptor guides the new nurse through the first several weeks of work in a complex and technical environment. Training experienced nurses to become Preceptors is vital to maintaining competent nurses at Rice. Preceptor Nurses voluntarily train for and fulfill this leadership role in the spirit of promoting the nursing profession.
Communication Boards To increase patient engagement and staﬀ communication, a grant provided new dry-erase boards in 40 Adult Health Care and Intensive Care patient rooms. Caregivers from many departments are actively involved in each patient’s plan of care. ey utilize the communication boards to share information with patients, families and staﬀ. ese boards improve communication between all members of the multi-disciplinary care team.
Ambulance Equipment Every year in the United States, more than 1.25 million people suﬀer cardiac emergencies that result in death or loss of partial heart function. In 2015, Willmar Ambulance Services responded to 46 calls for people in cardiac arrest. When it comes to heart attacks, speedy treatment is crucial. Defibrillators are lifesaving equipment ambulance crew members use to transmit cardiac patients’ data to emergency physicians for assessment while patients are being transported to the hospital. Grant funds purchased two defibrillators for the Willmar Ambulance Service. is allows physicians to monitor patients in real time and determine the appropriate interventions to save lives. Willmar Ambulance Service covers a 136 mile service area around Willmar, and responds to all cardiac calls throughout Kandiyohi County.
Emergency and Critical Care Service Staff Education Foundation grant dollars were awarded to provide continuing online education for all Critical Care and Emergency Services staﬀ at Rice. Nurses also attended Emergency Nurses Association and American Association of Critical Care Nurses Conferences. Attendees brought back knowledge to enhance processes related to trauma care for patients of all ages that reflect best practices and latest research.
Rice Rehabilitation Center Campaign Up for the Challenge
Construction of Rice Memorial Hospital’s new Rice Rehabilitation Center began September, 2015. e new state-of-the-art facility is on Trott Avenue, connected by tunnel to the hospital complex. e goal of the project is to meet the regional demand for pediatric and adult rehabilitation services, which has grown steadily at Rice over the past several years. To accommodate the growth, Rice Rehab expanded its operations several times, and is currently housed in five separate locations. Outpatient therapy services began at Rice in 1987, with the introduction of a pilot program for cardiovascular health and rehabilitation services. Rice Rehabilitation Center opened in 1999 and has grown to oﬀer a variety of outpatient therapy and rehabilitation services, including cardiovascular and pulmonary rehabilitation, cancer rehabilitation, certified hand therapy, driving and wheelchair assessments, ImPACT concussion management, pediatric therapies, swallow evaluations, and strategic orthopedics for head, neck, and back pain. Rice Rehabilitation Center at Rice Memorial Hospital oﬀers the best, most comprehensive rehab therapy services in West Central Minnesota, serving clients from 38 counties in Minnesota. e majority of patients come from Kandiyohi, Chippewa, Renville and Swi counties. Other patients hail from Big Stone, Pope, Lac qui Parle, Redwood, Meeker, Stearns, Lyon and Yellow Medicine counties.
Staff from Rice Rehabilitation Center were on site to witness the demolition of the Jade Center building, and to commemorate the official groundbreaking for the new facility.
With the ground-breaking in August 2015, Rice Health Foundation launched the “Restoring health. Restoring hope.” capital campaign to provide funding for the brand new facility. e campaign aims to raise $1.5 million for the pediatric wing of the new Rehabilitation Center. An anonymous local couple pledged a $500,000 matching gi toward the campaign if $500,000 was raised from the community by November 30, 2015. at challenge was met, leapfrogging the campaign to the $1 million mark. With less than $250,000 le to raise, Rice Health Foundation is sure to reach the $1.5 million campaign goal by the time the doors open in Summer, 2016. e new 10,800 square foot Rice Rehabilitation Center will bring all programs and services under one roof, providing convenient access for patients, visitors, and providers.

Hospice provided many services with compassion and care for our mother, Helen, as she went through the stages of her illness until her journey to heaven. Helen had been under Hospice care for 10 months when she was 'kicked out' because her health had improved. When her health declined, she was 'welcomed back' by her original Hospice team for her remaining three weeks. Mom's team consisted of her nurse, who provided the best medical care while holding her hand and giving her a smile; her social worker provided support to Mom and her family; her musical therapist gave spiritual comfort through her music and stories; her physical therapist massaged her tired and achy body; her volunteers were with her when family caregivers couldn't be; and the 24 hour phone service was available when family had care questions in the middle of the night. We couldn't have cared for Mom in her home without the Hospice team. We are eternally grateful for Rice Hospice!” Sheila Scarrella

When I first began volunteering with Rice Health Foundation it was with the Holiday Festival Gala committee. I got involved because I wanted to meet people since I was new to the area and the Foundation supported several good projects that were of benefit to the community. I have continued to work with the Gala committee and in other ways over the years because I enjoy working with the hard-working and dedicated Foundation staff and other volunteers. It has been a pleasure to help out and it is very rewarding to know that my efforts help give back to the community.” Cathy Bays, Holiday Festival and Office Volunteer

Supporting Rice Memorial Hospital with financial gifts and volunteer time is important to me. I want to give back as a retiree who thoroughly enjoyed my healthcare career, and I believe a community hospital is vital for the well-being of our area residents. Support for valuable services, excellent staff and latest medical technology is an investment I never question. It’s a Win-Win decision! Patients are assured they have local medical care in our rural area, and the essential hospital employees have a working environment and necessary resources to serve with excellence.” Andrea Carruthers, Rice Memorial Hospital Board

When I was eighteen, my dad, a kind and giving man, battled with esophageal cancer and lost. Going through that journey with him, I knew I wanted to be a nurse and help others after others had helped my family so greatly. Helping people through their health battles satisfies my desire to give back.” Elly Stock, RN, Rice Memorial Hospital
