    In This Issue: A Fond Farewell Meet PCMs Board and Executive Committee Honoring Choices Minnesota Teens and Alcohol

  • Ahead of the CurveWhen youre faced with a particularly difficult respiratory patient who needs specialized

    ventilation care, consider a national leader. Consider Bethesda Hospital and our Respiratory Care program, established nearly 30 years ago and one of the first of its kind in our region. Since the founding of our program, weve been ahead of the curve in treating ventilation patients, thanks

    in part to a dedication to high acute care nursing ratios and therapy staffing. As a result our ventilator weaning rates are among the best in the nation, with 70 percent of the vent patients we

    see fully weaned, according to a study by the National Association of Long Term Hospitals.

    When you need to move a patient on to the next step, its good to know you can turn to a leader in managing complex cases. Turn to Bethesda.
