Denim & Diamonds

With 2020 now behind us and the brighter days of 2021 ahead, it is with excitement that Newman Regional Health begins looking forward to its annual fundraiser, Denim & Diamonds, which directly supports local quality healthcare initiatives.  Denim & Diamonds fundraising efforts enable Newman Regional Health to purchase advanced technology and equipment as well as bring new services to patients located in and around the Lyon County area.  This year, Newman Regional Health will be hosting its 12th Annual Denim & Diamonds.  For many, contributing is an opportunity to invest directly in the health of our community, including their own family and friends.

2021 Fund Designation

Proceeds from this year’s Denim & Diamonds are designated to the development of a simulated apartment suite within our Inpatient Medical Rehabilitation unit.  The suite will allow patients to practice their independent living skills in a controlled environment prior to discharging home.  With this addition, staff will be better able to determine challenges the patients may still have while simultaneously building confidence in the patient prior to discharge. 

Due to the advances in the care of stroke patients, those who previously may have been destined to reside in a nursing facility are getting another chance at going home and the added suite will provide many patients the opportunity to realize that chance.
