Get your Flu Vaccine
Hello everyone! If you need your flu vaccine, now is the time!
Saige Becker is planning a flu clinic to help MVH employees get vaccinated. Join us October 13 from 4 to 7 pm in the boardroom upstairs from the Physical Therapy Department.
We have the vaccines on the floors currently so this will just be for employees who haven’t had the opportunity to receive a vaccine while they are working.
Are you ready for Drive Thru to Fight the Flu?
Tell your friends and family about this great opportunity for them to get their flu vaccines from the comfort of their own vehicles!
Please note: This event is only for patients only, not employees.

A Huge Thank You from EVS!
On behalf of the entire EVS team I would like to thank all of the departments and individuals who participated in Housekeeping Week last week. It was an amazing week of fun, food and gifts! The outpouring of love and support shown to the EVS team was incredible. I would especially like to thank Whitney Cooley and Tiffany Mendoza for coordinating the effort to purchase the entire EVS team (all 65 of us) jackets and for everyone who contributed in order to make it happen. Last week we also had the privilege of celebrating Carla Thueson’s retirement and though we will miss her 18 years of knowledge and expertise we wish her the best on her new adventures. Thank you to everyone who came out to wish her well!

September is Pain Awareness Month
September is Pain Awareness Month! We want to highlight Pain & Spine Specialists as we start out the month.
As Pain Awareness Month continues, Pain & Spine Specialists wants to help spread awareness that chronic pain can be treatable. Over 50 million Americans live with chronic pain, and there is likely someone you know (or even you) who is living with pain every day. The providers at Pain & Spine Specialists understand pain and how each person experiences pain in a different way. Because of this, they create individualized treatment plans to help get their patients back to doing what they love.
Pain & Spine Specialists takes an interventional approach with each patient that comes through their doors. They are focused on treating all types of pain and want to help individuals find a better quality of life with the right treatment plan. Some of the treatment options Pain & Spine Specialists offers includes spine and joint injections, nerve ablations, Botox for migraines, regenerative medicine, ketamine infusions for depression and pain, intrathecal pain pumps, spinal cord stimulators and other interventional procedures.
Pain & Spine Specialists has four locations in Southeast Idaho to better serve the community, with procedure centers at their Idaho Falls and Pocatello locations. All five of their doctors are double-board certified in anesthesia and pain medicine, and they have seven mid-level providers that are also specialized in pain care.
