An update from Sabetha Community Hospital
The month of May was a busy one at Sabetha Community Hospital (SCH). After kicking the month off celebrating National Hospital Week, we hosted 66 kindergartners from Sabetha Elementary School for their field trip. The kindergartners toured various departments as well as the Sabetha ambulance. We wrapped up the month with the annual babysitting clinic. For this event, SCH partnered with the Meadowlark Extension District and trained 19 youth ages 9-12.
The Patient and Family Advisory Council met for the first time at the end of May. This council partners patients and families with the healthcare team to provide guidance on ways to improve the patient and family experience. If you are interested in serving on the Patient and Family Advisory Council or would like more information, please contact us.
Last weekend, the annual Sabetha Community Hospital Golf Tournament was held. This was another successful tournament, allowing for the purchase of some new equipment for the Cardiac and Pulmonary Rehabilitation Departments. We appreciate everyone supporting local healthcare.
Dr. Karl Haake, a doctor specializing in pain management, and Tiffany Engelken, APRN, specializing in Dermatology, have both started seeing patients in the Outpatient Clinic. Dr. Jamesina Dickson, OBGYN, will begin later this month. Also starting in June is Physical Therapist Jena Halls! Jena’s primary focus will be pediatric physical therapy. However, you will see her working with all physical therapy patients.
This month, Staci Wysong is our Employee Spotlight. Staci has worked for SCH since December of 1991. Most recently, Staci has been the nurse for Dr. Kevin Kennally and Dr. Rachel Allen at the Sabetha Family Practice.
Swimming season is among us! The Trauma Committee works on various prevention programs throughout the year. This year, Sabetha Community Hospital provided 10 scholarships for swimming lessons at the Sabetha Aquatic Center.
Don’t forget the second Tuesday of every month is an opportunity to incorporate physical activity into your day by attending the Walk with a Doc program. SCH started this event in May and will continue it monthly. The event is at noon outside the Sabetha Family Practice.
Participants, of all ages, will hear from a healthcare professional on a timely health topic and then walk together along Main Street. Participants may walk as fast or slow as they wish and as much or as little as their body allows. We hope to see you on the second Tuesday of the month for Walk with a Doc!
