The accustomed dramas of doctors, nurses and patients on television aren’t exactly like visiting a real emergency room. Prairie du Chien’s only ER is as high-tech and can be just as fast-paced as the likes of those popular medical shows, but the caregiving team doesn’t have nearly as much spare time for personal dramas.

The Crossing Rivers Health emergency room handles about 9,000 visits a year. The medical staff sees virtually every illness—from sniffles and the flu to a heart attack, stroke and trauma—and proficiently treats its patients in a timely manner.

“In addition to our area residents, we see a large number of tourists in the summer, and they’re often pleased with the high level of care and that they can access quick, efficient, good care in a small town,” said Dr. Kevin Whitney, ER medical director.

The ninth annual Bald Eagle Watching Day in Ferryville is Saturday, March 4, at the Village Community Center on Highway 35. This program is sponsored by the Ferryville Tourism Council, co-sponsored by Friends of Pool 9 and free to the public. Complimentary refreshments and children’s craft activities will be available throughout the event.

Event activities are from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Located right on the Mississippi River, Ferryville is an ideal place to host Bald Eagle Watching Day. There are many eagle nests in the area, including a new one just south of Ferryville. The Pool 9 section has more nests than in any other part of the Mississippi River.

At 10 a.m., bald eagle nest building will start off the day. Dr. Michael White, with the help of children from the audience, will build an eagle’s nest. Learn how “really big” these nests are, how heavy they are and how they are constructed.
