If Joint Replacement Surgery is in Your Future...
be sure to ask about our Joint Camp for a better result. - 2014-09-11 : The Total Joint Camp at Sturgis Hospital ensures you have a higher quality of living with your new prosthetic joint. Annually over 400,000 people undergo replacement surgery. Primary candidates are individuals with chronic joint pain from arthritis that interferes with daily activities, walking, exercise, leisure, recreation and work. The surgery aims to relieve pain, restore your independence and return you to work and other daily activities. Total knee replacement patients recover quickly. Patients may be able to walk the same day of surgery (depending on the procedure performed). The Total Join Camp at Sturgis Hospital has developed a comprehensive, planned course of treatment. We believe that you play a key role in ensuring you have a successful recovery. Our goal is to involve you in your treatment through each step of the program toward a successful surgical outcome. Your team includes physicians, surgical staff including nurses, nurse assistants, care managers, and physical therapists specializing in total joint care. During Joint Camp every detail from pre-operative to post-operative care is reviewed and explained to you. Your care team will individualize your treatment plan and guide you through it. If you anticipate a joint replacement, be sure to ask your surgeon about the benefits of Joint Camp, or call Shirley Betts, Medical/Surgical Floor Director at 269.659.4372.

Add YOUR NAME to the Michigan donor registry
Michigan Organ Donor Registry - 2010-09-24 : Statewide drive aims to add 1 million names to Michigan Organ Donor Registry Donor Drive 2010 sign-up efforts already under way across Michigan Gift of Life Michigan and its key partners, including the MHA, have launched a massive campaign to add one million new names to the Michigan Organ Donor Registry this year in an effort to bolster the list of potential donors and save lives. Michigan ranks 42nd nationwide in the percentage of registered drivers who have officially expressed their wish to someday become organ, eye and tissue donors. One reason Michigan is behind: Many residents aren't aware that signing the back of a Michigan driver's license or state ID is no longer the way to sign up. Since 2007, residents add their name to the Michigan Organ Donor Registry. They can do so at www.giftoflifemichigan.org, by calling 800.482.4881 or at a Secretary of State branch.
