Did you know the student athlete in your family has to have a qualifying sports physical every three years to be eligible to participate in sports? Summer is a great time to schedule exams your child may need, and Mille Lacs Health System can help you out with that.

Mille Lacs Health System has received the Acute Stroke Ready Hospital designation from the MN Dept. of Health. The hospital was notified that it meets the criteria regarding standards, guidelines and best practices.

Mille Lacs Health System is partnering with area restaurants and local law enforcement this summer to help reinforce bike helmet-wearing.

We all love our barbecue grills in the summer, but the way we clean those grills can have some potentially damaging health effects. Wire bristle brushes, which many people clean their grills with before searing up a new batch of food, can be dangerous if you’re not careful.

A group of six centenarians (those either 100 years old or about to be within the next couple months) gathered at Mille Lacs Health System Long Term Care to have their photo taken to celebrate this auspicious milestone.

Summer is just around the corner, promising warmer and sunnier days ahead. While most of us love summer and being in the sun, we also recognize the dangers of extensive sun exposure.

June is Men’s Health month, and the medical providers at Mille Lacs Health System want men to take an active role in their health care by making sure they get their annual checkups. The sad stereotype of the man who won’t go in to see a doctor when they are having issues with either their physical or emotional health is all too true.

May is National Stroke Awareness month. According to the National Stroke Association, a stroke can happen to anyone at any age and at any time. It is not just about being older. Strokes in children, teens, and young adults are increasing at an alarming rate in the U.S., with a 44% spike in the number of young Americans (under 45 years) hospitalized due to stroke over the last decade. Sadly, 73% of young Americans are not familiar with stroke symptoms and the need for urgent medical attention.
