Giving Tuesday

CHI Oakes Hospital Celebrates #GivingTuesday

This #GivingTuesday CHI Oakes Hospital is raising funds to upgrade the comforts of our patient rooms. CHI Oakes Hospital realizes that when a patient is comfortable, and has a warm, inviting room that allows for visitors, they will heal faster. With that in mind, they will be raising funds this #GivingTuesday to buy new more comfortable chairs for patients to be up and out of their beds and larger TVs so patients who are here longer can enjoy their favorite movies or programs as they recover. CHI Oakes Hospital is proud to be able to provide a place for community members to recover and heal close to home, without having to travel to larger cities.

#GivingTuesday is a global day of giving that harnesses the collective power of individuals, communities and organizations to encourage philanthropy and to celebrate generosity worldwide. Following Thanksgiving and the widely recognized shopping events Black Friday, Small Business Saturday and Cyber Monday, this year’s #GivingTuesday will take place on November 27th and will kick off giving season by inspiring people to collaborate and give back.

Founded in 2012 by the 92nd Street Y – a community and cultural center in New York City - #GivingTuesday inspired millions of people to give back and support the causes they believe in. Over $300 million was raised online to benefit a tremendously broad range of organizations, and much more was given in volunteer hours, donations of food and clothing, and acts of kindness. “We are incredibly inspired by the way the #GivingTuesday community has embraced this concept for a worldwide movement,” said Henry Timms, founder of #Giving Tuesday and Executive Director of 92Y. “As we prepare for November 27, we’re energized and encouraged by the community’s generosity. The levels of creativity, effort and the quality of the new ideas people have contributed and shared are phenomenal.”

Local healthcare organizations seek input from area residents about community’s health needs

Click here to take survey

(DICKEY COUNTY) – In an effort to gauge the overall health needs of the community, CHI Oakes Hospital(OCH) and Dickey County Health District (DCHD) will survey area residents during an approximately four-week period beginning September 3rd, 2018. Results of the survey will guide OCH and DCHD in addressing healthcare needs in our area. Assistance in conducting the assessment is provided by the Center for Rural Health at the University of North Dakota School of Medicine and Health Sciences.

OCH and DCHD strongly encourages all area residents to participate in the survey. Surveys will be distributed in various ways including local businesses, events, senior centers, and online.

Residents may access an interactive, online version of the survey at Additionally, written copies are available by stopping at either CHI Oakes Hospital or Dickey County Health District. All survey responses are anonymous, and there is no way to track responses back to individuals. Survey responses are returned to the Center for Rural Health to help ensure anonymity. A postage-paid return envelope is included with each written survey.

The survey will allow local providers to learn of the community’s awareness of local health care services being provided, hear suggestions and help identify any gaps in services, learn about community health and other concerns, and determine preferences for using local health care versus traveling to other facilities. In addition to specific questions, the survey also seeks general, open-ended input from residents about the community’s health needs and the delivery of local health care.

Becki Thompson, President at CHI Oakes Hospital said that “the information gained from the Community Health Needs Assessment is vital to understanding the concerns and current needs of the population we serve. Partnering and working closely with Dickey County Health District will help us to address the highest priority items more effectively.”

A periodic community needs assessment is one of the requirements of the Affordable Care Act and Public Health Accreditation Board Standards. # # #
