HealthBreak | Hospital Nutrition
Providence is committed to health care, and that includes the food it serves to its Missoula hospital patients, visitors and employees. "As of 2014, we became a 100 percent fryer-less hospital," shares Missy Kelleher, director of Food and Nutrition Services at Providence St. Patrick Hospital. "That impacts peoples' health in a great way." "Years ago, we served mostly frozen vegetables to patients," Missy continues. "Now, all our vegetables, except for peas and corn, are brought in, prepped and served fresh, every day. We serve an entrée in our café that is considered green and fresh by the ADA, meeting a certain level of calories, is fresh and heart healthy." St. Patrick Hospital also offers a program called "Cuisine on Call," allowing patients to order meals when they want them. "If you are on a therapeutic diet, the software will filter out items from the menu that you are not able to eat," says Missy. "It will also alert our staff if you go over a certain level of carbohydrates or sodium, and we'll try to negotiate a different option." "Every request is cooked to order," Kelleher continues. "Patients receive a nice, hot meal at its optimum freshness - it's a great satisfier for our patients." To find out more, visit http://montana.providence.org/hospitals/st-patrick/
HealthBreak | Nitrous Oxide
Nitrous Oxide has been used for decades in Europe and Canada as a pain reliever for women in labor, and has no known side-effects for moms and babies. And now, the Missoula Family Maternity Center at Providence St. Patrick Hospital is proudly offering the option. "Nitrous Oxide is a colorless gas that's inhaled," says Mark Garnaas, MD - an OB/GYN doctor at St. Pat's. "A woman in labor can give it to herself, and it allows her to be mobile - she can still walk - and it leaves options open for other pain relief if she desires." "The technique is that the mom holds the mask up to herself," explains Dr. Garnaas. "It takes about 50 seconds to start to work, so ideally, she would start breathing in the Nitrous Oxide in and the medication would be at its most effective before the next contraction occurs." Nitrous Oxide is one example of the wide range of safe options to help laboring moms achieve the type of experience they're hoping for at Providence St. Patrick Hospital's Western Montana Maternity Center in Missoula.

HealthBreak | SANE Program
About 45 percent of women and 23 percent of men report having a sexual assault in their lifetime. "The statistics increase for those who live on a Reservation," says Erin Rumelhart, BSN, DON - director of Nursing and Quality at Providence St. Joseph Medical Center in Polson, Montana. "About one in three (66 percent) Native American women report having some type of sexual assault in their lifetime." To care for victims, St. Joseph Medical Center partnered with local organizations and St. Patrick Hospital in Missoula to create the Sexual Assault Nurse Examiner (SANE) program. "Nurse Examiners collect forensic evidence, assist law enforcement, provide resources and a safe place for the victim to be able to completely tell their story," Erin explains. "Victims get a nurse who is willing to sit with them and walk through the journey with them - from the time they enter the hospital to the time they leave." SANE ensures resources are available and put in place, whether it's safe housing, emergency transportation, follow-up care, and emotional support.

HealthBreak | CPC+
Health care is changing, and one of the biggest issues is the transition from a model built around taking care of sick people, to a model built around keeping people healthy. One way Providence St. Patrick Hospital in Missoula, Montana is making the change is by using Comprehensive Primary Care Plus - known as CPC+. "It's a new government program that is helping us develop value-based care," says Samer Khodor, MD - Regional Chief Physician Executive of Ambulatory Care. "It's important, because it builds upon a patient-centered model, where we involve patients and families in the decision making process." CPC+ does this by utilizing Care Managers to coordinate patient care from hospital to home. "In the past, when a patient was discharged from the hospital, they had a lot of unknowns and they had to coordinate care themselves," Dr. Khodor explains. "With CPC+, our care managers will reach out to patients and their families, help them coordinate care, make follow-up appointments and get necessary referrals. It's going to provide patients and families better access and coordination to health care services." "We truly believe in the Triple Aim: to improve the patient care experience, improve the community's health and reduce per-capita cost," Dr. Khodor continues. "This program is a step in the right direction." For more information, visit http://montana.providence.org
HealthBreak | Anxiety and Depression
One in five people will experience mental illness in any given year. Two of the most common types are anxiety and depression. "The kinds of things we see patients with anxiety feel are a sense of doom, or feeling nervous - maybe edgy, or uncomfortable in their own skin," explains Laura Salyers, MD - a psychiatrist at Providence St. Patrick Hospital in Missoula, MT. "To the extremes, they may feel a panic attack, where they have difficulty breathing, feel the heart race like a heart attack - having a major fear that they might die." "Patients with depression may have problems with sleep," Dr. Salyers continues. "Whether they're sleeping too much, or very little; lack of interest in ordinary activities; things that usually bring them pleasure are no longer joyful; troubles with motivation; troubles with appetite (eating too much or too little); feelings of overwhelming guilt; sadness; crying spells; anger; irritability. And when people feel their life is no longer worth living." If you are experiencing any of these symptoms, the specialists at Providence can help. "The earlier treatment, the better," says Dr. Salyers. "Never give up hope. Reach out - treatment works."

Dr. Mike Hutchins, St. Patrick Hospital
Shingles is the adult form of chicken pox left over from childhood. It hides in the nerves until your immune system has been compromised and can no longer fight the infection—and it can affect anyone. Dr. Mike Hutchins from St. Patrick Hospital describes the symptoms. St. Patrick Hospital offers a vaccine for those over 60 to help them avoid Shingles, a re-activation of the chickenpox virus.

HealthBreak | O-Arm Neurosurgery
We live in a technological world that is constantly changing. And back and spine surgery are no different. Providence is on the cutting edge of neurosurgical technology. "The O-arm CT scanner is something we use a lot," says Carter Beck, MD - a neurosurgeon at Providence St. Patrick Hospital in Missoula. "We can bring it into the operating room and actually do CT-Scans while we are doing spinal or cranial surgery." "Often, it can help us limit the amount of operative exposure that is required for surgery," Dr. Beck explains. The Western Montana hospital also utilizes intra-operative navigation. "Using a CT scanner or an MRI during surgery, we can limit the amount of dissection required, and be very accurate where we operate. That's very important when we are operating on someone's brain," Dr. Beck says. "This results in quicker recoveries, less complications and a happier patient."

HealthBreak | Telehospitalists
Providence Health & Services is committed to provide innovative ways to take care of the communities we serve. Erin Rumelhart, director of Nursing and Quality at St. Joseph Medical Center in Polson, explains that one of the ways we do that in Western Montana is through the Telehospitalist program. "Telehospitalists are just the beginning of a whole new way to provide care to patients, regardless of where they are located," says Erin. "A patient, presenting either in the emergency room, directly admitted to the hospital, or at the Polson, Montana walk-in clinic, can be seen by a medial specialist via the Telehealth system - similar to Skype or FaceTime. Utilizing a Bluetooth stethoscope, he or she can even listen to your heartbeat" To find a Providence hospital or clinic near you, visit http://montana.providence.org
HealthBreak | Missoula Trauma Center
Trauma is the leading cause of hospitalization and death through the age of 45. At some point in our lifetimes, half of the population will be seriously injured, or have a loved one who is seriously injured. It's critically important that trauma patients are cared for in a trauma center - like the one in Missoula at Providence St. Patrick Hospital. "If you're seriously injured, your chance of survival increases by 25 percent if you are cared for by a trauma system and a trauma center," says Brad Pickhardt, MD FACS - St. Patrick's trauma director. "Once that patient arrives, a trauma team composed of doctors, nurses, respiratory therapists and radiographers meets the patient. All of these team members have specific jobs that they do simultaneously and efficiently," Dr. Pickhardt explains. "That system means that the most seriously injured are identified and delivered to most appropriate, definitive level of care in a timely fashion." Providence St. Patrick Hospital in Missoula, Western Montana, built a Level 2 Trauma Center in the late 1990s and has maintained its high level of care ever since. "Throughout my career, I have never seen St. Patrick waver in its commitment to this community," shares Dr. Pickhardt. "One of it's commitments is the care of the trauma patient."

HealthBreak | Cardiac Rehabilitation
Cardiac Rehab is a supervised exercise program for people who have suffered a cardiac event, such as heart attack, heart failure or heart surgery. Susi Mathis, an exercise physiologist at Providence Health & Services in Western Montana, explains how it works. "Cardiac rehabilitation is medically supervised. Individuals get their vital signs taken, and their heart rate and rhythmn are monitored during their exercise program." At Providence St. Patrick Hospital in Missoula, MT, Cardiac Rehabilitation also includes classes on dietary changes, managing stress, medication management, advance directives, resistance training, aerobic training, basic hands-on CPR and information about support groups. "Those are the structured classes," explains Susi, "But our patients also get daily personalized education, based on what THEY need at this time in their lives." Most sessions are 12 weeks long and occur three times a week. "We have found that patients who participate in the Providence Missoula cardiac rehabilitation program have better outcomes, less chance of hospitalization and fewer secondary cardiac events," Susi says. "Overall, it will improve their quality of life."

HealthBreak | WATCHMAN Implant Device
Atrial Fibrillation is the most common heart arrhythmia and effects the electrical currents of the heart. "Atrial fibrillation (also called A-fib) is a heart condition where the top two chambers just kind of shake," explains Steve Shepro, MCHS PA-C, a physician assistant at the International Heart Institute of Montana. "It can reduce the output of the heart, and also cause clots to form." "Ninety percent of the clots that cause strokes come from a little pocket in the heart called the left atrial appendage (LAA), Steve continues. "If we can block, or pinch that off, and prevent those clots from breaking free and moving to the brain, we can reduce the risk of stroke." At the International Heart Institute of Montana in Missoula, this can be accomplished by implanting the WATCHMAN Implant device. "WATCHMAN is essentially a little umbrella that is deployed into the left atrial appendage - the pocket in the heart where blood clots can form - and is permanently sealed off when heart tissue grows around it," Shepro says. "It's a lifetime treatment." The Missoula heart institute is the only facility in Montana that offers this procedure.

HealthBreak | Endocrinology
Endocrinology is the study of hormones; and endocrinologist is a doctor who diagnoses and treats diseases of the body's hormone-producing glands. "About 90 percent of what I do is related to diabetes and thyroid disorders," says Christopher Corsi, MD - a Western Montana endocrinologist at Providence St. Patrick Hospital in Missoula. "Predominantly, kids will get Type 1 Diabetes; adults will get Type 2. Both are diseases of blood sugar, and the reason they relate to endocrinology is there is a hormone in the body that controls blood sugar, which is insulin." Missoula primary care providers manage most aspects of diabetes, but if additional help is needed, endocrinologists offer expertise. "Diabetes is a chronic disease - it doesn't go away," says Dr. Corsi. "What we're trying to do is help people still live a good quality of life while they're managing it, but also achieve their goals to stay healthy."

HealthBreak | General Surgery in Polson
Providence St. Joseph Medical Center has a new full time general surgeon - Robin T. Hape, MD, FACS - and Polson, Montana is exactly where he wants to practice. "I grew up in the Mountains - a "Park Service brat," Dr. Hape explains. "I love the mountains, and always dreamed of coming back to Montana; it's wonderful to be back." Dr. Hape performs a broad spectrum of general surgeries at the Polson hospital, including hernia surgery, gallbladder surgery and appendectomies. "I perform the basic surgery cases, plus a wide variety of surgical oncology cases, including breast cancer, colorectal surgery, skin cancers," Dr. Hape says. "Plus a variety of emergency surgical procedures and trauma surgery, when needed." Dr. Hape's decision to become a surgeon was a personal one. "My wife was diagnosed with breast cancer when I was a second-year medical student," he explains. "I think because of that, I take special pride in the way I treat cancer patients - especially those with breast cancer and colon cancer." "My goal in Polson is to provide safe and compassionate surgical care for a broad array of surgical problems."

HealthBreak | Palliative Care
Palliative care is medical care that is focused on relief of suffering and improvement of quality of life, for patients and their families. "Typically we care for patients who have pretty serious illnesses, whose symptoms aren't being well-controlled," explains Dr. Christopher Jons, a palliative care provider in Missoula, Montana at Providence St. Patrick Hospital. "So, we focus on relief of pain and other symptoms; emotional symptoms, like stress, or depression; and even spiritual symptoms that can accompany serious illness." In Missoula, Providence provides palliative services in both the outpatient, ambulatory clinic setting, as well as inpatient, hospital-based acute care to a wide variety of patients. "It could be a patient with a chronic, stable but incurable disease - like advanced heart disease, or lung disease - who are receiving all kinds of medical treatments, but are having difficulty controlling some of the symptoms related to the diseases, or the treatment of their diseases," says Dr. Jons. "What we hear primarily from patients and families is gratitude and relief," he continues. "Because they didn't realize it was possible to feel well."

HealthBreak | The Providence Mission
Providence St. Patrick Hospital in Missoula, Montana, has a rich and vibrant history - spanning more than 140 years. Karen Myers, Regional Director of Mission Integration describes how, since the beginning, the Mission has remained the same. "The Mission is really about being with people when they are suffering," Karen says. "And providing love to them during that journey." Providence caregivers bring the Mission alive, especially to those who are often ignored or marginalized in our communities - the poor and the vulnerable - by creating programs to help those in need, like First Step, for victims of abuse and a medication assistance program "We help those who might not have the resources at that moment in time, and it's difficult - it's really humbling" says Myers. "But we get so much more back from our patients than we ever give them." To learn more, visit http://montana.providence.org
