Moving From Surviving to Thriving


Register Here:

Making a difference in the lives of others – this is the reason many of us were drawn to our roles in healthcare. We enter into the lives of our patients, their families, and our communities at times of stress, trauma, and uncertainty. We bring comfort, relief, and presence.

This care, however, comes at a cost. The stories we hear and the care we provide to our patients affects us. Regulatory requirements, pressures to reduce healthcare costs, increasing time constraints, and being rated and measured on everything we do have become a part of our everyday realities.

In response, we cut ourselves off from feeling. We numb our emotions. We look for escape in unhealthy ways. These are the reasons burnout rates continue at alarming rates.

How do we begin to get off the merry-go-round? How do we become more present not only at work, but at home? How do we begin to reclaim the care we need for ourselves so that we can better care for others? This work is the focus of this conference, and the speakers understand the challenges and the chaos we each face in our professional and personal lives.

While none of us has mastered this work, we’ve learned the power of sharing our stories, our experiences, and tools that can be used to make a difference. We’re learning to develop resilience, a strong sense of well-being, greater social connection, improved sleep, and better working memory.

This conference represents a unique collaboration of physicians, nurses, and hospital leaders from multiple health systems who have come together for one purpose – to impact the lives of individuals, communities, and organizations by promoting health through resilience.

Wherever you are in your own journey, this is a great place to start. We hope you join us!

Stellis Health designated a ChiroCare Center of Excellence

The ChiroCare Centers of Excellence (CCoE) Program was developed by Fulcrum to recognize clinics that use standardized clinical protocols and an integrated, collaborative approach to achieve positive outcomes and improved quality of life for patients. Using best practice approaches, Stellis Health provides patients with a consistent, high-quality experience. The CCoE program highlights ChiroCare clinics who achieve and maintain the highest standards of patient-centered care through record keeping, documented outcome measures, and collaboration with other health care providers to achieve the Triple Aim in health care.

Stellis Health Ranks Among Lowest Cost Clinics in Minnesota

The total cost of care at Stellis Health is 17 percent lower than the Minnesota state average, according to a new report by the Minnesota Community Measurement (MNCM) nonprofit. The report looks at clinic costs across Minnesota and assesses whether the increased costs are the result of clinics charging more or ordering more care like tests, follow-up visits, and prescriptions.

Buffalo, Monticello, and Albertville-St. Michael Clinics Renamed “Stellis Health”

The new Stellis Health logo features a star twinkling at the horizon to symbolize the Latin root meaning of Stellis and the physicians daily calling to watch over our communities health.

Stellis Health is the new name for Buffalo Clinic, Monticello Clinic, and Albertville-St. Michael Clinic. And though you’ll be seeing new signage outside all three clinics, inside, you’ll find the same primary and specialty physicians, physician assistants, and nurse practitioners who’ve been treating patients all these years.
