Speaking of Health — January 2023
Mayo Clinic Health System in Fairmont is seeking interested individuals who want to volunteer at the medical center. Volunteers can provide patients and visitors with hospitality, services and amenities through dedicated volunteers who give their time and talent to honor Mayo's commitment that the needs of the patient come first. There are many benefits to volunteering including meeting new people, offering your skills and a caring spirit, making an impact on other people's lives, exploring opportunities in the healthcare field, and giving back to your local community. Volunteers can fill several different roles including: Gift Shop, Information Desk, Oncology, STEP Force, and Hospice.
For more information, contact the Volunteer Office at 507-594-6364 or visit our Volunteer page.
Each month in Speaking of Health, a department and service will be featured as an opportunity to recognize medical center staff, their work, and contributions to Fairmont's healthcare services. This month's feature is the Mayo Clinic Health System in Fairmont Pharmacy team.
The Fairmont pharmacy team provides many services including patient care responsibilities with clinical monitoring of hospitalized patients, preparing and monitoring distribution of medications, and providing medication therapy management services in the clinic setting. The pharmacists are supported by pharmacy technicians who provide support with data and products.
Medication Therapy Management (MTM) is a specific service to patients that is offered in the outpatient setting. MTM provides education and consultations for the medications you're taking. During a consultation, a pharmacist meets with you to discuss all your medications including prescriptions, over-the-counter drugs, vitamins, and dietary or herbal supplements. To schedule an appointment for medication therapy management, please call 507-238-8500.
Mayo Clinic Health System in Fairmont would like to share a nod of thanks to our pharmacy team for their compassion and excellence they bring to the team. Pharmacy technicians Nikki Hector and Glenda Hector and pharmacists Eric Mathiowetz, Allison Young, Cassica Jobe.
Employee recognition is an important part of the healthcare work environment, and we are excited to feature a new employee recognition program called the Blue Heart Award. Each month, a MCHS Fairmont staff member is recognized for going above and beyond.
The January Blue Heart Award recipient is Stacy Evans, a technician in the Emergency Department. Stacy was nominated for her sensitive and compassionate care to patients.

How it works
Each month, we'll focus on a different aspect of healthy living.
