St. Cloud Surgical Center Honors MLK’s Legacy with Day of Service



Dr. King once said, “Life’s most persistent and urgent questions is: What are you doing for others?”

A Day On, Not a Day Off
Observed each year on the third Monday in January as “A Day On, Not a Day Off,” Martin Luther King Jr. Day is the only federal holiday designated as a national day of service to encourage all Americans to volunteer to improve their communities.

Week of January 18th
St. Cloud Surgical Center will be hosting its first organized Day of Service on January 18, 2021 and will continue throughout the week. Staff are volunteering to donate and create “snack packs” that will be distributed to Central Minnesota non-profit organizations. Giving back to the Central Minnesota community is one of St. Cloud Surgical Center’s core values.
The national Martin Luther King Day of Service was started by former Pennsylvania U.S. Senator Harris Wofford and Atlanta Congressman John Lewis, who co-authored the King Holiday and Service Act. It was signed into law by President Bill Clinton on August 23, 1994.

Consider doing something for others in honor of Martin Luther King.

As the second leading cause of cancer-related death in men and women, colorectal cancer is also one of the most preventable cancers with proper screening, early detection, and removal of growths.
Colonoscopy plays an important role in colorectal cancer prevention. A colonoscopy is a minimally invasive, safe procedure used to evaluate the colon for cancer and other gastrointestinal symptoms, such as rectal and intestinal bleeding, abdominal pain, or changes in bowel habits.

No Increased Risk of Complications For Joint Replacement In Ambulatory Surgery Setting

EurekAlert!, an online, global news service operated by the American Association for the Advancement of Science, just shared a fantastic article about the benefits of having your joint surgery in an ambulatory surgery setting. In the article they stated:

“The average length of stay in hospital was 8:09 hours for the ambulatory group, much shorter than 23:24 hours for the in-patient group. Overall, the rate of complications was low and there was no meaningful difference between groups: 3.9% for the in-patient group and 2.4% for the ambulatory group. There was also no significant difference between groups for readmission rates.”
