Aspirus Hospital Recognized for Heart HealthSubmitted: 01/11/2013
Story By Hayley Tenpas

WAUSAU - A local hospital's dedication to healthy hearts earns it a top notch award.

Aspirus Wausau Hospital was placed in Becker's Hospital Review list of "100 Hospitals with Great Heart Programs."

Becker's Review chooses hospitals based on care and contributions to the heart field.


Cardiologists at Apisrus say active heart research programs combined with dedication to different aspects of heart disease are some of the keys to their success.

"I'm proud of, not only on the quality of the care we provide our patients but also in the fact that patients are satisfied with doctors, with nurses, with techs, with the facility. So it's a recognition to the whole team," said cardiologist Dr. German Larrain

Aspirus is one of four Wisconsin hopsitals recognized by Becker's for heart care.

MARATHON COUNTY - Warren Rydell doesn't mind the buzz or stingers.

"You don't need to be afraid of bees, you just have to love them for what they are," said Rydell.

Rydell has raised bees since the 1980s. Now with 35 colonies and thousands of bees in Marathon County, he's produced hundreds of pounds of honey just this year.

"We're having success with it," said Rydell, who's with the Marathon County Beekeepers Association. "A little at a time. You make mistakes, but it's getting better."

But here and across the country, bee populations have been on the decline for years. Bees are important pollinators for the environment, which is why the Wisconsin Department of Agriculture, Trade and Consumer Protection will meet next week to devise a pollinator protection plan.

"Whether people know it or not, for every three tablespoons of food you eat, two of those table spoons are produced by bees, and without them, we're not going to be able to feed people," said Rydell.
