The administration of the Ruby Valley Hospital sponsored a luncheon party for the volunteers of the Ruby Valley Hospital Auxiliary on October 22nd at Bethany Hall.  The purpose of the luncheon was to express the Hospital’s appreciation for the efforts of the Auxiliary volunteers to raise funds that support our local hospital.  Billie Jo Rowberry, secretary and treasurer provided a recap of the Auxiliary’s financial operations and John Semingson, CEO of the Ruby Valley Hospital, discussed the current status and financial needs for the new hospital facility.  The Ruby Valley Hospital Auxiliary operates the popular Ruby Valley Reruns second hand goods shop in Sheridan and the gift shop at the Ruby Valley Hospital.

How to Protect Your Children from the Enterovirus

The recent media hubbub and subsequent fear surrounding the emerging viral outbreak of NON-Polio Enterovirus 68 and ensuing phone calls of concerned parents motivated me to write an article to help educate our community about this virus, and other viral illnesses that circulate through our small population in Southwest Montana. We are a global community now, and viruses can be spread with one plane ride. Many times immunizations, if we have them up to date, will protect us, but we do not have immunizations available for every virus.  Treatment of viruses can be very difficult.  That is why prevention is the best course of action. Only seriously ill, hospitalized patients are being tested and identified for viruses at this time and that can take days or weeks to confirm from the Montana Public Health Laboratory or CDC.  State and local health departments and medical providers are the first line of surveillance and treatment of this outbreak and good resources for reliable information.
