Supporting Hometown Healthcare/ Sept. 25 – Nov. 3
As a healthcare organization, we strive to maintain a commitment to excellence – and to treat all patients with respect and compassion; to offer them the most advanced, most effective medical treatments and technologies available; to deliver cost-effective, high-quality care; and to respond to their ever-changing healthcare needs. This was the vision of our past community healthcare providers and for nearly 90 years Mitchell County Hospital Health Systems (MCHHS) physicians, nurses and staff have successfully upheld this vision, a fact that is evident in the hospital’s consistently high patient-satisfaction ratings.
The business of running and keeping a hospital financially viable has come under great pressure. Over the course of the last decade over 800 hospitals across the US, including more than 20 in Kansas were forced to close. The bottom line, hospitals are providing services without being reimbursed for the cost of these services. Kansas hospitals – including MCHHS – continue to provide services many times at loss. Given these realities, even the finest financial performance could never generate the dollars needed to support capital needs as well as the many changes that must be made to keep the hospital providing the best healthcare possible.
The Mitchell County Hospital Health Systems with Mitchell County Regional Medical Foundation is launching an annual campaign: Supporting Hometown Healthcare to help assist in raising funds for critical equipment purchases and healthcare investments for our communities. Our intent is to raise charitable dollars in cash, pledges and deferred gifts. An exciting addition to this campaign is a challenge from the Mitchell County Hospital Health Systems Endowment for every dollar donated the body will donate dollar for dollar in matching funds, increasing the resources for sustaining quality health care in our community.
On behalf of Mitchell County Hospital and Mitchell County Regional Medical Foundation, we are asking you to give thoughtful consideration to a charitable donation to this campaign. We hope you will join us and others in making an investment for continued healthcare services in our community for the people who live and work in Mitchell County and neighboring communities.
If you would like to make a donation using an alternative method of payment please contact us at (785) 738-9493 or by email at email@example.com
