SCKMC Leadership

Mission & Vision Statement

Our Mission is...
... to continuously improve health care through personalized and compassionate care close to home.

Our Vision is...
... to serve as the foundation for our community's wellness and medical care through service, leadership, and community partnerships.

CEO Philosophy

Mr. Virgil Watson Jr. started as the Chief Executive Officer for SCKMC on January 5, 2015. Throughout his career in healthcare, Mr. Watson has held positions at almost every level, including environmental services, human resources, and roughly twenty-years in hospital administration.

Mr. Watson's philosophy is simple and straight forward: If we all do one additional thing every day to try to improve the facility, it will just continue to get better and better each day.

"We will succeed if everybody works together. It will take the community, physicians, employees, management, the City, everybody to make sure this hospital starts to thrive and grow, not just maintain the status quo. We want to be the top medical provider in our area." - Virgil Watson

Through this approach, SCKMC works to limit the need to seek healthcare sources outside of the local community.

"We have all the services of any major hospital, here locally. What we don't offer through our local providers, we can partner with specialists who will come in and help us to provide those services. That should be our goal, to deliver local services anytime that we possibly can." - Virgil Watson

We love to hear from our guests! Please take time to review the patient testimonials and exceptional service recognition from patients' experiences, as well as leave us your thoughts on how we can make South Central Kansas Medical Center better each day.
