As 2019 comes to a close and we prepare to start another new year, Prowers Medical Center would like to express our sincere appreciation and gratitude for all our dedicated, compassionate team members.
From our support staff to our Providers, we’re so thankful these hardworking individuals choose to bring their talents to Prowers Medical Center every single day. They offer so much to our community, not only by providing high-quality health care for our patients, but also by giving back and volunteering their time and energy at an array of community events and activities throughout the year. You all truly make our community a better place!
Our organization is proud of the multiple milestones we reached in 2019.
We successfully navigated our way through our third accreditation survey with DNV – GL Healthcare and are now gearing up for the process in 2020, which will give us the opportunity to achieve our ISO 9000 certification. What does this mean? Our team works hard throughout the year to demonstrate their commitment to our patients and communities, instilling confidence in them that we are always providing complete, compassionate care. By participating in an annual survey, we are continuously conducting self-assessments to prepare for an external peer assessment process that accurately evaluates our level of performance in meeting established health care standards and to help implement ways to improve. In essence, we are building a complete foundation for quality management.
We developed partnerships with other health care entities to introduce new service lines as we grow and strengthen our commitment to excellence. We now offer PET scans in our Imaging Services Department to assist health care Providers in finding diseases in the very early stages — sooner than any other technique. With the introduction of an Orthopedics service line, patients can now receive consultations, treatments and surgeries, creating a one-stop shop for orthopedic needs closer to home. With our addition of a part-time Orthopedic Surgeon and a full-time Orthopedic Physician’s Assistant, we are able to provide a full-scope of orthopedic surgery offerings, including Total Joints. Fundraising efforts continue through the Foundation’s “Priceless Pictures” campaign to bring new MRI equipment in-house as a part of our Master Site Plan.
Our investment in local medical students by providing necessary scholarships in support of their education, and in return, their commitment to come back to Prowers Medical Center, strengthens and enhances our recruitment process into the near future. Support of our existing staff in their advanced educational goals falls in line with continued efforts to grow and encourage them to be the best that they can be. Our commitment to building trust and prioritizing care makes an impact on our organization as well as our patients.
Our community is the reason we have the ability to thrive and succeed. We know our patients have a choice when it comes to their health care, and we are continuously honored and humbled that they choose us to meet their needs.
We credit our outstanding staff as one of many major reasons our patients choose Prowers Medical Center year after year. Our team is extremely genuine and selfless, and their endless commitment to our patients is unrivaled. Their ability to always put our patients’ needs first is apparent in everything we do, and we truly believe we have the best team in the region.
Thank you to all of our Team Members who make Prowers Medical Center and our community a better place to live! Throughout 2019, you all so generously offered your support, gave hope, touched lives and helped those in need! We look forward to 2020 with you by our side.
