Hospital to host open house Feb. 18

River Falls Area Hospital, 1629 E. Division St., part of Allina Health, will host a free Complete Women’s Care open house from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. Saturday, Feb. 18.

The public is invited to tour areas such as the birth center, imaging department and rehabilitation facilities, and also learn about the many women’s services available on campus.

A program featuring health experts will begin at 10:30 a.m., focusing on women’s healthcare topics.

“Women’s healthcare is a major focus for our hospital, with services for females in their teens on up,” says David R. Miller, River Falls Area Hospital president. “When you need care for gynecologic surgery, pregnancy, labor and delivery, menopause or any other service, our hospital staff is really what sets us apart when you walk through our doors.

“We really want our patients to see the faces behind the care as they make decisions about where to entrust their family health needs.”

The open house offers a scavenger hunt, healthy activities such as yoga for grandparents and grandchildren to participate in together, information booths about services and important health topics like advanced directives, a raffle, prizes, giveaways, food and more.

“The open house is an opportunity to show the wealth of services currently offered at River Falls Area Hospital as we embark upon a new chapter on campus, with the 2017 addition of a new Allina Health clinic,” Miller said. “This integrated care model will be a great asset to western Wisconsin and keeping high-quality care close to home for residents.”

The new Allina Health River Falls Clinic is slated to open in June.
