Why did you choose OAHS?

We chose to deliver our first baby at OAHS because we really liked the atmosphere at the clinic. And as soon as we met Dr. Stacey Longnecker, we knew we felt comfortable with her – with the staff and everybody there. 

Once it was time for baby to come, we were nervous, this being our first baby. But as soon as we got to the hospital, we knew we were going to be well taken care of. 

We felt comfortable and everything went smoothly. We had no problems and it was actually an enjoyable experience.  There were a lot of emotions going on, but I felt comforted and really well taken care of at OAHS.

Would I recommend OAHS to expecting or soon to be expecting parents? Yes, I would!

ACTIVE SHOOTER DRILL SCHEDULED

Ortonville Area Health Services, in conjunction with the city of Ortonville, will be participating in a live active shooter drill on Thursday, September 21st at 11 am at the Northridge building. Do not be alarmed if you see any unusual activity at this time. Community Emergency Services will be in use for the drill.

Again, this is only a drill.

We are required to practice our procedures annually in order to keep our patients, visitors, tenants, and residents safe in the unlikely event of a real active shooter situation.

Thank you for your understanding. 

Why Did You Choose OAHS?

We chose OAHS because it’s the local hospital and because I knew of the good staff they have along with their providers – nurses, surgical team – everybody’s great. I just feel very comfortable there.

 During my first pregnancy, everything went completely normal and well – labor was a little rough, however, my provider and the nursing staff got me through it. Because I had a pretty traumatic labor, my provider recommended a C-section with my second baby. I felt 100% confident in his judgment, so we did the C-section with the second. It was a terrific experience from start to finish. I have zero regrets with having the C-section.

 Would I recommend OAHS to expecting or soon to be expecting parents? Oh I would for sure recommend OAHS. Some people think it’s such a small town hospital it makes people hesitant. I can’t stress enough –  they are so comforting, start to finish.

And if I have a question for my doctor, I send a message on my chart and receive a quick response.

 These are the best times of your life, but also very nerve racking times. Everyone at OAHS does a good job reassuring you and being there for you from start to finish. And even for years after during well child checks and anything that comes up after baby is born.

Why Did You Choose OAHS?

Dr. Bob Ross has delivered all of my kids and will be delivering #4 as well.

OAHS is a great hospital. All 3 of my births have gone really well – I had great experiences with all of them. The nurses were great, the rooms are great – very clean and nice, and I love the spa tubs!

It’s nice – when you’re from a small town, you tend to know everyone and I take comfort in that. Everyone was so easy going. They made me feel really comfortable.

 Would I recommend OAHS to expecting or soon to be expecting parents? I would – definitely!

Congratulations to Chloe Campbell of Wilmot, SD. Chloe was recently chosen as the winner of a $2000 Sanford Health Network Scholarship. Chloe is enrolled in practical nursing at Lake Area Technical Institute in Watertown, SD, and has goals to be full time as an RN in a rural hospital or an OB nurse. “In this career path, I understand that I will have daily challenges, but yet the reward of being prepared to care for people in their time of need will be worthwhile,” said Cambell.

Pictured presenting Chloe her scholarship is Natasha Hynnek, one of our own clinic nurses. Recently Chloe was working as a student in our clinic when Natasha received an email announcing the opportunity for a Sanford Health Network Scholarship. Natasha encouraged Chloe to apply and, sure enough, she was chosen as the winner.
