A health makeover for an entire Minnesota town?
Minneapolis Star Tribune, June 11, 2008
New Ulm, MN, will participate in an experiment on whether it's possible to eliminate heart attacks throughout an entire community. The experiment is one of two Allina Hospitals and Clinics plans to announce in a five-year, $100 million health initiative it has named the Center for Healthcare Innovation. The other experiment is aimed at discovering if Allina can affect the health of those who live in the Minneapolis neighborhoods where Allina is based. Both New Ulm and the south Minneapolis neighborhoods will become living laboratories on how to prevent disease and do a better job of treating it when it does occur, said Allina officials.
