The North Dakota Office of Management and Budget (OMB) today announced that the State Capitol Complex has been designated by the North Dakota Department of Health and Human Services as the state’s second Cardiac Ready Campus.

“We are incredibly proud that the North Dakota State Capitol was designated the second-ever Cardiac Ready Campus in North Dakota,” Capitol Cardiac Ready Campus Lead, and Facility Management Administrative Assistant Julie Strom said. “This is a testament to the state’s commitment to the health of its team members, by ensuring access to blood pressure monitors, automated external defibrillators, and ongoing education about the risk of heart disease.”

Several state agencies collaborated over the course of a year to meet the extensive criteria of the program. The team ensured that blood pressure monitoring stations and automated external defibrillators are now available for team members in all the Capitol complex buildings: Capitol Tower, Department of Transportation, Governor’s Residence, Heritage Center and State Museum, and the Liberty Memorial Building.

Strom added that she plans to hold a kick-off educational event during American Heart Month, in February 2024, at the Capitol.
