2020 Virtual Harvest Auction: An incredible success By Jessica Sobolik UMCF
illnesses such as bronchitis, especially in children.
Prior to the 2020 Harvest Auction that took place Nov. 9-14, it was hard to even guesstimate a fundraising goal. Would anyone attend a virtual auction? It certainly wouldn’t be the same as the in-person event of years past. How would an online auction even work?
The Lucky Charm went to Elaine Thompson, who chose the Destination Unknown travel package to anywhere, which came with a two-year expiration date so that travel can occur after COVID has been mitigated.
Despite the learning curve for event planners and attendees, the overall result was jaw-dropping.

Thanks to many generous donors, the Harvest Auction raised just over $100,000 for Unity Medical Center, and the funds will be used to purchase smart boards that will improve the patient experience in the new hospital and high-low oxygen systems that treat not only COVID patients, but other respiratory
The reverse auction alone raised $37,450, exceeding the goal of $32,000. Donations came through the online GiveSmart platform, via text and even via phone call on live camera. The hopsital decided to purchase three high-flow oxygen systems, which have already been ordered. The remaining funds will go toward the patient smart boards.

New hospital addition nears Phase 1 completion By Jessica Sobolik UMCF COVID-19 caused some unexpected delays, but as of November, the new building’s exterior work was nearly complete. Inside, walls are enclosed and painted, and carpet and cabinets are installed. During the Harvest Auction, a 360-degree tour was provided of the interior of the building. Still very much a construction site, it can be viewed safely from your home at bit. ly/umc-360.

Update from CEO Alan O’Neil Dear friends, The time we are presently in is unprecedented. The COVID-19 pandemic continues to create stress and anxiety in our communities, and with our families. Each and every day, we face choices that we have never had to make before: Should we send the kids to school? CEO Alan O’Neil Should we attend a social event? Should I go to the grocery store? Should I keep my healthcare/dental appointment? With the holidays fast approaching, what should we do and who should we invite? Each decision creates a challenge. Opinions for these choices vary greatly, but please keep in mind, the consensus medical opinion is to minimize social contacts, along with following personal precautions such as mask wearing and hand hygiene. No one is trying to violate your personal freedoms. Rather, the intent is to create a safer environment to mitigate the spread of this virus. Last spring as the virus was really starting to spread I heard a physician comment in a matter-of-fact manner to maskwearing resistors, “I’d much rather have a mask on my face thereby minimizing the chance of having a tube down my throat.” The visual that this creates is quite graphic. When we face challenges like this, it can bring out the best in some individuals. I would like to offer a sincere thank you to the selfless healthcare workers and other first responders who are dealing with this stress on a 24/7 basis. There are many “heroes” anonymously emerging every day. Most people won’t point to them and say, “There goes a hero.” – It’s quite unlike the athlete receiving accolades
from adoring fans. The healthcare heroes go about their daily work with a focused dedication and a complete acceptance of the risks they face each and every day. Here at Unity Medical Center, we have tested thousands of individuals for COVID-19. The line of vehicles seeking the drive-through testing often surrounds the building and extends down the block. Many people are involved with the process – from the front line nursing staff to the laboratory technicians who are preparing the tests for processing, and all departments in the organization. Our society is quite accustomed to immediate order completion via a drive-through service, whether it be food, coffee, banking and now healthcare. Please keep in mind, not all drive through tests will have an immediate result available. Due to limitations with supplies, it is not possible to have sameday results for all individuals seeking tests. Phase 1 of the new Unity Medical Center hospital is in the final stages of completion. The timing is good – given the world we are presently living in. With the large private patient rooms, improved air handling and integrated UV technology, the building will be much more private, (safer) and will support the extremely talented healthcare team here at UMC. We will have our final building inspections performed in January and will have patients in there shortly thereafter. Also, a big welcome to Jessica Sobolik, our executive director of the Foundation. She has hit the ground running and was very involved, along with others, with conducting a very successful virtual Harvest Auction. We also welcome Dr. Jennifer Shaw and several other new employees in many departments. In spite of all the challenges we are presently facing, UMC is continuing to grow and expand our services. Have a safe holiday and thank you for your support!. Sincerely, Alan O’Neil Chief Executive Officer Unity Medical Center
BBC News highlights Unity’s COVID fight On Nov. 23, BBC News highlighted Unity Medical Center (UMC) in an online segment called “COVID in North Dakota: One day inside a rural U.S. hospital’s fight.” The story included four video diaries compiled by Unity Chief Medical Officer Dr. Matthew Viscito, nurse and ER manager Amy Burianek, nurse Mary Jo Schap, and social worker Heather Narloch. They discussed the challenges they are facing in their day-to-day work during the COVID pandemic, which worsened in Walsh County in October. At that time, according to the BBC, one in eight people in Walsh County had been infected with COVID. The
day they filmed, 10 of 14 hospital beds were full. The chapel, a family room and the radiology waiting room had been converted to patient rooms to accommodate the surge of patients. Also problematic, facilities such as Altru were no longer able to take transfers from Unity and other surrounding facilities. You can find the link to the BBC News story at bbc.com/news/av/worldus-canada-55024447. A BBC crew was also on-site filming follow-up content that aired on BBC World News on PBS on Nov. 25. That story can be viewed at youtu.be/jlLZUyfSmS4.
BBC crew members Pete and Larry visited Unity on Nov. 24 to film a segment that aired on PBS on Nov. 25.

AUCTION: Continued from page 1 Kingsbury who placed the winning bid at 7:59 p.m., before the auction closed at 8. Cash drawings went to Roger and Sandy Schuster, Mike Kilmer, Roger and Rita Amiot, Dean Yantes, and Howard and Karen Ray.
Behind the Scenes There are many people to thank for their role in the event. The Foundation board (members listed on the back cover of this newsletter) gave the green light to pursue it, and Event Coordinator Lisa Schuster and board member Kristina Petersen set up the GiveSmart software. Over 140 tickets were sold, 111 bottles of wine purchased and 58 charcuterie boards made by the talented Katelyn DeSautel, Jill Thompson and team.
In the week leading up to the Harvest Auction, UMCF Facebook followers played Whereâ€™s Denny to find a picture of board President Denny Schneider that was hiding among the auction items for prizes.
Over 125 items were donated by various businesses and individuals. Some of the more popular items (by number of bids) included a Fighting Sioux mug set donated by Scheels, a basket of goodies from American Crystal Sugar and the Minnesota

Update from UMCF Executive Director
I started at UMCF in October, and I have been amazed by the many positive things going on at Unity Medical Center. What a time to come on board!
The Harvest Auction was virtual for the first time ever, and it was a huge success, greatly exceeding our expectations! I have to give kudos to the UMCF board, especially board member Kristina Peterson, and event coordinator Lisa Schuster for spearheading that endeavor. By the time I came, they had already done a ton of work in setting up the GiveSmart auction software and soliciting auction items. And thank goodness Jenn Thompson is here to share her past perspective and wealth of knowledge! I watched auction items come in from businesses that I know have been affected by COVID this past year, and the gifts still came! Even more impressive, 143 people virtually attended the auction, and $100,000 was raised to benefit the patient experience at Unity (you can read more about it on page 1 of this newsletter). I have to say that before the reverse auction via Zoom, I wasn’t even sure if anyone could hear us (given some of the technical difficulties), but once the reverse auction gifts started rolling in, we knew the message was getting through. And I’ve never seen anything like that at UND, where I helped raise money before coming to UMC. All I can say is, “Wow!”
I also have to thank former UMCF Executive Director Kristy Jelinek for building the Harvest Auction over the past four years to what it is today. She has done amazing work overall at the Foundation and has been very helpful in my transition. I look forward to building on the very strong foundation she created! So what’s next? I have three general goals, starting with updating our donor database so that the Foundation can communicate with donors via mail or email … whatever their preference! We want to keep everyone updated on the new building project, upcoming events and the impacts that their gifts are having at UMC every day. They have invested in us, and we want to let them know what we’re doing with that investment! Secondly, I want to strengthen our web and social media presence, and newsletter. I would welcome the public’s feedback in these areas! For example, are there things you expect to see on our website but don’t? Let me know how we can get you the information you are looking for! Third, and most importantly, I want to reach out to donors to introduce myself and to make sure their gifts are going toward their giving priorities. I want to meet as many people in the community as possible … as much as COVID and Zoom will allow anyway! Now that the auction is behind us, this goal should be easier to reach. My final thank you is to the Walsh County community for welcoming me into my new position. I’m excited to get to work! In the meantime, I want to wish you all happy holidays, and a happy New Year!

Grateful patient: David Fellman By Maggie Suda UMC
After 45 years of doing auto body work involving painting and sanding, Grafton resident David Fellman’s shoulder was shot. The functionality was gone, and he was barely able to lift it.
Fellman’s primary care physician, Dr. Matthew Viscito, referred him to Dr. Darin Leetun, one of the Valley Bone & Joint Clinic providers who patients can now see in Grafton. According to Fellman, “Dr. Leetun is a really good guy. He’s thorough, friendly and knows what he’s doing.”
Heartbeat • Winter 2020
Dr. Leetun has 20 years of orthopedic experience, including work as a team physician for USA Hockey and the U.S. Ski and Snowboard team. Fellman underwent a total shoulder surgery at UMC in September. After four to five weeks in a sling, he was able to start follow-up care with UMC’s Physical Therapy team and is feeling great, on his way to a full recovery. Fellman shared, “Having this service available locally is fantastic. It’s so much easier to find someone to drive you a few blocks than 40 miles.”
Save the date: Giving Hearts Day, February 11, 2021 By Jessica Sobolik UMCF The Unity Medical Center Foundation (UMCF) will again participate in Dakota Medical Foundation’s Giving Hearts Day (GHD), slated for Feb. 11, 2021. Last year, 174 donors from North Dakota, Minnesota and as far away as Ohio raised just over $15,000 to directly benefit Unity Medical Center. An additional $5,000 in matching funds were provided by First United Bank, Bremer Bank, Choice Bank, North Star Community Credit Union and Dakota Medical Foundation. Proceeds went toward a TruRize Clinical Patient Chair, which promotes early patient mobility with multiple positions and stand-assist features. This year’s GHD fundraising priority hasn’t been determined by the UMCF board yet, but as an example, could include a continuation of the Harvest Auction goal: to purchase 10 smart boards for patient rooms. Harvest Auction proceeds netted six of the 10 systems, so additional funds could go toward the remaining four.
All proceeds designated for Unity Medical Center during Giving Hearts Day (minus credit card processing fees) go to UMC. You can make a gift online that day at givingheartsday.org, or starting in January, you can schedule a gift to be processed automatically Feb. 11. You can also stop by the Unity Medical Center hospital to make a gift in person or mail a check (memo: Giving Hearts Day) to 164 W 13th St., Grafton, ND, 58237.
UMCF is also seeking donors interested in providing the required $5,000 in matching gifts to encourage others to participate. If you are interested, please call Jessica or Jenn at (701) 379-3003 or email foundation@unitymedcenter. com.
Giving Hearts Day was started by Dakota Medical Foundation in Fargo in 2008. It is the longest-running giving day in the country and has raised more than $90 million for North Dakota and northwest Minnesota charities.
Save the date: Scrubs Camp, March 24, 2021
Jobs in healthcare are in demand now more than ever, but it can be hard to attract workforce to rural communities. One way to be proactive is to expose youth to a variety of careers available in their hometowns before they graduate. Unity Medical Center is supporting this effort by participating in several local programs including Marketplace for Kids, Explore NVCTC and North Valley’s Job Shadow program that launched in 2019. Exposing youth to a variety of careers can have several positive outcomes: • Career exploration experiences and opportunities can improve academic performance. They also increase the likelihood that these students will complete high school and pursue post-secondary education. • Career exploration opportunities improve the attitudes of young people about their career possibilities, motivating them to persevere. • Career exploration improves students’ knowledge of career options, encouraging them to develop and work toward goals during the critical years before graduation. • With a better understanding of the working world, young people can more easily envision how they fit successfully into that world. Knowing the preparation they will need for specific careers, participants also become better able to set realistic goals for themselves and pursue them. • Students who are involved in career exploration are more likely to plan their high school courses of study carefully to gain the skills they will need.
Unity Medical Center (UMC) in partnership with North Valley Career and Technology Center (NVCTC) and the Walsh County Job Development Authority will be hosting an R-COOLHealth Scrubs Camp on March 24, 2021. UMC was awarded a $2,500 grant from the Center for Rural Health (CRH) at the University of North Dakota School of Medicine & Health Sciences. The overall purpose of the program is to increase awareness, interest and understanding of health careers available in rural North Dakota through creative and interactive activities. More than 70 9th grade students from Grafton High School will spend the day at UMC and attend 10 classes on different healthcare careers. Sample classes include pharmacy, physical therapy, emergency room, lab, radiology, respiratory therapy and dietetics. Each class will be 25 minutes long and feature a hands-on element. The presenters will include hospital and clinic staff along with Val Heuchert, the Health Sciences instructor at NVCTC. At the end of the day, five students will win a set of real scrubs to take home.

The Joy of Living Generously By Paul D. Hensrud TruStone Wealth Management How can I live a life full of joy and happiness? The clients we work with don’t typically phrase a question this way, but ultimately it is an underlying theme and is related to someone’s goals. If I do this, will I be “happier” than if I did that? Should I pay down my debt or buy a new car? Should I go to Arizona for vacation or Paul Hensrud ski in the mountains? Each financial decision we make is a reflection of our long-term perspective and goals. Some people obsessively research retirement or vacation plans, and others seem to make these decisions on a whim. This article is about the competing places you can spend your money and the impact it has on you today. There are four ways one can spend their money: live, give, owe and grow. When we work with our clients, we try to get a better understanding of how they feel about each of these categories and how they prioritize them. These spending decisions reflect their own values and goals. This article focuses on the impact that “giving” can have on one’s financial plan. Many people associate “giving or generosity” solely with religious people, but there are studies that encourage all people to consider this practice on a consistent basis. Spending money on other people may have a more positive impact on happiness than spending it on yourself.(1) This would indicate there is purpose beyond religious reasons to consider giving. A 2008 book, ”Gross National Happiness,” suggests that once basic needs are met, then additional wealth adds little additional happiness,(2) again adding to the consumption vs. contentment battle that our society continually faces.
would suggest that there is a very strong correlation between giving and contentment, and contentment provides an attitude where happiness and joy can flourish. When we are not as concerned with keeping up with the Joneses, we can spend more time on the things that are important to us, which perhaps would provide further happiness and joy. We would also add that giving can be more than just monetary; it can (and we would contend should) include giving of time, talents, wisdom, and resources. All these things require giving of yourself to other people or causes. Finally, as you consider your giving options, we would recommend being intentional, thoughtful and strategic. How much is enough for myself or my family? What are options I should consider? There are many strategies to consider as it relates to your situation. Giving systematically, qualified charitable distributions, donor advised funds, gifting stock or land directly, and many other options are available, and each one is unique to your situation. If you have questions or you would like to consider your giving strategies and how it relates to the joy in your life, we would love to walk with you on this journey. Giving is a very personal conversation, and as we develop personal connections with our clients, we love seeing this come to life. 1. Elizabeth W. Dunn, Lara B. Akin, Michael I. Norton (2008).

Provider spotlight: Dr. Shaw By Maggie Suda UMC Dr. Jennifer Shaw, Unity Medical Center’s newest family medicine physician, knows a thing or two about the rural lifestyle as she grew up in Hastings, Mich., a rural community with a population of 7,315. She was inspired to go into the medical field by one of her uncles, who was a family medicine physician Dr. Shaw in a rural community. Through him, she saw the need for good physicians in a rural setting. After graduating from Saint Louis University School of Medicine in St. Louis, Mo., she completed her medical residency and was chief resident at Southern
Illinois University in Quincy, Ill. Three and a half years ago, she moved to Grand Forks and completed her obstetrics fellowship at Altru Family Medicine. Dr. Shaw found herself drawn to obstetrics and women’s health. According to Dr. Shaw, “Babies are fun – it’s happy! I enjoy taking care of everyone from the time they are born until the geriatric years.” Many people are unaware that Dr. Shaw (and Dr. Kristi Midgarden) can see pregnant women up until 28 to 35 weeks along, depending on the direction given by their chosen delivery provider. Dr. Shaw also offers many gynecological procedures including IUDs and Nexplanon. Dr. Shaw’s goal is to deliver top-quality care in a rural setting, and selecting Grafton Family Clinic or Park River Family Clinic allows patients to maintain excellent healthcare, while greatly reducing travel time, especially during the winter months. There is also greater flexibility with scheduling appointments. If you would like to make an appointment with Dr. Shaw, please call Grafton Family Clinic at (701) 3522000.
UMC chemotherapy: Moving cancer care close to home By Maggie Suda UMC Deciding where you or a loved one are going to receive chemotherapy treatment should not be adding to your stress level after a cancer diagnosis. Unity Medical Center (UMC) wants patients to know that they can choose where best to receive their cancer treatments or infusions. Once you have settled into your chemotherapy treatment, you have the option of receiving your treatments at UMC. You can still visit as needed with your oncologist via e-visits or tele-visits prior to treatments. UMC offers a private, cozy chemotherapy treatment room that is equipped with a recliner and TV, and has a window for natural light. According to Jeff Zak, UMC pharmacist, “UMC has a state-of-the-art, certified, sterile medication mixing and compounding room whereby all regulatory standards either meet or exceed what is required. The area is certified every six months by independent inspectors. I personally mix the medications and have more than 38 years of experience. The medications that UMC acquires and mixes are no different than those received in larger hospitals.”
Why choose UMC for chemotherapy: • It reduces travel time and allows you to spend more time in the comfort of your home, especially when you may have increased fatigue, nausea/vomiting. •
Multiple appointments are often required for

• UMC’s emergency department is available if needed and in communication with your oncologist. • Shared electronic medical record/medical history and information ensure that everyone has the information needed for the treatment as far as doctor’s orders, medication orders, etc.
