Wednesday January 2, 2019 - New Year Activities at the Care CenterIt’s been a memorable and joyful holiday season for the residents at North Shore Health. There was music and caroling, plenty of holiday treats, gift giving, and most importantly-good times with family and friends. The residents want to thank the American Legion Auxiliary, the Grand Portage Auxiliary, Care Center employees, and many generous community members for their donations and gifts. We are blessed to live in such a caring community.
We have a lot of indoor fun planned for those cold days of January! We will be doing more winter crafting, lots of games, and more cooking activities to keep us cozy and warm.
There will be plenty of music too. The Middle School Choir will be at the Care Center to perform at 11:00 a.m. on January 8. Myron Bursheim will be here on Sunday afternoons, and Susan Scherer will play piano for us on Wednesday afternoons. Kate Kelnberger will also be here on January 15 at 3:00 p.m., and Amy Schmidt on January 21 at 2:00 p.m.
The first dance of 2019 welcomes Portage Band-the classic country band that performs at the Care Center the last Saturday of the month throughout the year. The event will be held on Saturday January 26 from 6:30 to 8:00 p.m. As always, friends and family are invited to join us for any of our music events.
The January birthday party will be held on January 9 at 3:00 p.m. Doug Sanders will be here to play our favorite piano tunes, and there will be plenty of cake and ice cream to enjoy. Our two residents celebrating birthdays in January include Jean Roberts and Mary Anderson. Family and friends are invited to join us for the party.
The Grand Marais Lioness will host their social, with delicious dessert and music on Saturday January 19 at 3:00 p.m.

Tuesday January 1, 2019 - New Price Transparency RegulationEffective 1/1/2019 the Center for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) requires all Hospitals to post their entire Charge Description Master (CDM) to their website. Reviewing the CDM can be confusing as many services provided by hospitals have several individual charges; a visit to an emergency room may consist of charges associated with the level of nursing services (facility level charge), physician services (professional level charge), pharmacy charges, supply charges, along with any specific procedures that were performed. You may also receive charges from outside medical facilities in addition to those from North Shore Health such as services provided by your Sawtooth Mountain Clinic physician during an inpatient stay or from a radiologist for reading and interpreting your CT exam.
Our healthcare system is complex. The staff at North Shore Health is here to help you understand the charges for the services you receive. For more information call 218- 387-3040.
