As we approach the closure of yet another year, Prowers Medical Center would like to express our sincere appreciation for all the hard work, dedication, compassion and talents that our Team Members share with our community. The Healthcare Team at Prowers Medical Center not only provides excellent medical care, but they give back and volunteer their time and energy for a variety of community events and activities throughout the year.
Our organization can boast a variety of Milestones Reached in 2018. Our Hospital District celebrated 50 years of existence this past year – what a monumental accomplishment for healthcare in our community! Our Lab Services Team and our Home Health Agency both achieved a “Deficiency Free” rating for the second survey in a row. Our Hospital earned the “Best Overall Performance” among Critical Access Hospitals as part of Quorum Health Resources National Excellence in Leadership awards ceremony. Our organization maintained our accreditation through DNV – GL Healthcare following their annual onsite survey to “dig deeper” into our records as we continue our quest to improve patient care, enhance services, and achieve consistent, high-quality outcomes.
Revitalized or new services introduced included the ability of our Registered Dietitian Nutritionist to once again offer Nutrition Counseling to our patients; a Weight Loss Management program; playing host to a three-day training, continuing education course to enhance our care for patients through the guidelines and instruction from the Institute of Physical Art; and the addition of Healthcare Providers and Support Staff to our Healthcare Team.
The community is the reason for our success; they have a choice of where to go for healthcare, and we are honored that they choose us. One of the reasons our Hospital is the choice for healthcare is because of our outstanding staff. Their unending commitment to our patients and putting patients’ needs first shows in everything we do,” said Craig Loveless, Chief Executive Officer of Prowers Medical Center.
We know that “time” is a very valuable commodity. “Thank You” to all of our Team Members who so generously offer Support. . . Give Hope. . . Touch Lives. . . and Help those in Need!
