Testimonial of the month
At SCKMC, we strive to provide an exceptional healthcare experience for all of our guests. While we believe it is important for our community to understand the high quality of care available locally, sometimes the most effective messages come from those we have served:
"I believe that when something good has happened it should be shared. I believe that if something makes a positive impressionin life it should be talked about. This is why I feel it is important to write this article on behalf of South Central Kansas Medical Center.
In January I had major surgery and received the best of care from the moment I entered the hospital to my release. Not only was I well taken care of, but the staff arranged for the comfort of my family members as well.
Prior to my admission date I was scheduled for an MRI, blood work, CT scan and x-rays. I was so grateful for each person responsible for giving each test. I received kindness, patience, and extreme care as they understood my apprehension of what I was about to encounter. I felt great comfort when all tests were completed because that was how I was made to feel.
At 2:00 A.M. two days after my surgery, I had a critical moment that greatly concerned the nurse on duty. Her professionaland immediate reaction was incredible. Dr. Roboto, a new source of technology, was brought in and immediately connected to the Doctor in Lawrence . This powerful Sun Flowertele-medicine service was the answer and assistance needed for my immediate health. I am so thankful for this wonderful piece of equipment that can make such a difference in so many lives. From that experience and medical treatment, I am so thankful for the positive results. My daughter, who was a witness to Dr. Roboto, videoed the entire experience and was equally impressed and thankful.
I am grateful for the incredible medical care I received. I was also impressed with food service. They were very considerate and even made meals available to my family while they stayed with me. The well kept room from the cleaning staff not only did a good job but were comforting as well. We in our community and surrounding area should feel blessed to have such a hospital that can service us in the best way possible. Yes, something good has happened to me and I want to share. Yes, something has made a positive impression on my life and I want to talk about it.
Thank you South Central Kansas Medical Center. Thank you Dr. Lin and Dr. Blatchford. You have made a difference and I am indeed thankful." - Peggy Musson, 2017
