‘Accordion Night’ at the ballpark

Final Accordion night 2014

Calling all accordionists and concertina players.

   FamilyHealth Medical Clinic of Lonsdale will host “Accordion Night at the Ballpark” Friday, June 20, when the Lonsdale Aces take on the Webster Sox at 7:30 p.m. at Trenda Memorial Park in Lonsdale.

   The event is being billed as the “ultimate squeeze play.” Fans with accordions or concertinas will get in free if they join the accordion choir for a rendition of “Take Me Out to the Ball Game” during the seventh-inning stretch. Bob Pexa and Friends will be providing music throughout the evening.

    There will be give-aways and plenty of health tips provided by FamilyHealth staff. Come join us.

Take precautions when enjoying summer months

Dr. Nick preaches vigilance.

This is the time of year when accidents happen. The sun is out, the snow is gone, and with our long daylight hours, we are back outside working and playing full force. He advises us to stay in the moment and take the necessary precautions to prevent an unscheduled visit to the clinic or the Northfield Hospital Emergency Department.

Nick Krawczyk, MD, a family medicine physician with FamilyHealth Medical Clinic, has seen his share of accidents. Before becoming a physician, he was a paramedic, in the field witness to how lives can become sidetracked from bad timing, distractions or trying to take an ill-advised short-cut.

“I don’t want to squeeze the fun out of our warm weather months and all of the activities we enjoy,” Dr. Nick said, “but I encourage people to take their time and some simple precautions so they can minimize the risks in their work and play.”

Accident prevention starts at home. Here are a few ideas for making your summer safe:

— While doing yard work, resist disabling any of the safety features on your lawn mower, chain saw or power tools.

— Use hearing protection and safety goggles when required.

— When backing out of a driveway, be aware of where the kids are playing.

—- Use car safety seats when you travel, life jackets when you are on the water

— Keep fire arms and ammunition separated and under lock and key

— Make sure your smoke detectors and carbon monoxide detectors are working

— Keep any substance with a warning label and any choking hazards up high, out of the reach of children.

— Take extra precautions around open fire and provide close supervision of children if celebrating with fireworks.

“Summer is a time to have fun and make memories,” said Dr. Nick. “My hope is by being putting safety first, those memories will be good ones.”

Welcom to Lakeville Dr. Alice Mann

Dr. Alice Mann joins FamilyHealth

 Alice Mann, MD, a Family Medicine physician, has joined FamilyHealth Medical Clinic, a service of Northfield Hospital & Clinics.

Beginning January 27, Dr. Mann will see a full range of patients at FamilyHealth’s Lakeville clinic. Her physician services are provided by Mayo Clinic Health System.

Dr. Mann is board certified in Family Medicine. She received her medical degree from Meharry Medical College in Nashville, Tennessee and performed her residency with Mayo Clinic Health System in LaCrosse, Wis. She has a special interest in women’s health, geriatrics, pediatric and adolescent care, management of chronic diseases, and sports medicine

Dr. Mann says she went into medicine to make a difference in the lives of people. A solid relationship built on trust and mutual respect is the foundation of good medical care, she says.

International health is one of her passions. She has spent time providing medical care in under-served populations around the world.

FamilyHealth Medical Clinic provides both primary and specialty healthcare through partnerships with a variety of premier providers. Specialties include pediatrics; orthopedics; OB/GYN; ear, nose and throat; and general surgery. It also offers Urgent Care at its Lakeville clinic.

For an appointment with Dr. Mann, call FamilyHealth Medical Clinic at 952-469-0500.

Hospital to open urgent care in Lakeville

Northfield Hospital & Clinics is bringing urgent care to Lakeville.

Beginning October 15, urgent care providers will be available to see walk-in patients at Urgent Care Lakeville, a service of Northfield Hospital & Clinics, at the corner of Jacquard and County Road 70. Hours will be noon to 8 p.m. Monday through Friday and 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. Saturdays and Sundays. No appointments are necessary.

The new “urgent care” clinic services will be located side-by-side with the existing primary and specialty care clinics already in place at FamilyHealth Medical Clinic. Urgent Care Lakeville will be staffed by physicians who have backgrounds and experience in emergency medicine, which will be a benefit to diagnoses and to referrals, if they are necessary.

“We think the urgent care model meets a community need,” said Kathleen Meier, Division Administrator for Clinic Services. “Patients often can’t anticipate their need for medical care. This will give them an important option when the need is now.”

Urgent care is defined as the delivery of ambulatory medical care outside of a hospital emergency department on an unscheduled, walk-in basis. The scope of service is greater than that of a retail minute clinic, but more cost-effective and timely than a visit to a hospital emergency department.

Urgent care medical services are similar to those of a primary care clinic, but available even when your regular primary care provider is not. Urgent care is equipped with radiology and laboratory services. Procedure rooms allow for treatment of minor and moderate-severity lacerations

Urgent care is not designed as a replacement for developing a relationship with a primary care provider, Meier said. An urgent care center is a convenient option when someone’s regular physician is on vacation or unable to offer a timely appointment. Or, when illness strikes outside of regular office hours, urgent care offers an alternative to waiting for hours in a hospital Emergency Room.

In addition to urgent care, Northfield Hospital & Clinics also offers primary and specialty care at its clinic. Specialists include OB/GYNs, ENT, and orthopedics. For an appointment with any of these clinicians, call 952-469-0500.
