Our Focus is YOU

The "very best" service means different things to different people. What does it mean for you to "see" or "experience" the very best? Only one way - excellent service to patients at Webster County Community Hospital. It is at the heart of everything we do! Our on-going commitment to our patients is the motivation for all we do, and we are doing everything we can to keep it that way!

From our beginnings, WCCH has been a leader in rural health care. Webster County Community Hospital has grown from a small house that was used in the earliest beginnings to the current location of our 13-bed Critical Access Hospital. It is complemented with the Webster County Clinic, which is a rural health clinic attached to our facility.

Focusing on State-of-the-Art Equipment

Meeting your needs of quality healthcare in today's environment is challenging. Whether you are seeking care as an in-patient or as an out-patient, in Emergency Services or other extended services, we offer quality care by a quality staff of professional healthcare workers. WCCH is always monitoring our needs for expansion. Changing times demand changing technologies.

Focusing on Quality Care

Physicians and other providers are the front line individuals dealing with you as a patient, and with our knowledgeable staff of providers and physicians as guides, we have done our best to furnish WCCH with state-of-the-art equipment. This investment enables you, the patient, to obtain the very best care right here in your community setting. Dr. Estela L. Chan works closely with our staff. Serving you through our Webster County Clinic are Dr. Amy L. Springer and Abby Hansen, PA-C. Look for more information on our Clinic page. Couple these knowledgeable providers and physicians with state-of-the-art equipment and a caring staff, and it should be obvious that WCCH will confidently and capably handle the present and future needs of patients in our community.

WCCH has redefined the concept of the very best service to our patients in the best way we know how by offering the professional services of physical therapists, cardiologists, surgeons, orthopedists, and urologists.

Community Health Improvement Plan

Every five years South Heartland convenes a community-informed public health assessment and facilitates development of a Community Health Improvement Plan. During 2011 and 2012, residents, community service organizations, health care providers, government officials, education professionals, business and civic leaders, and many other partners in the public health system came together across our four counties to identify forces of change, strengths, and opportunities in our communities and in our local public health system. With a shared purpose of "Connecting People and Resources for Strong and Healthy Communities in Adams, Clay, Nuckolls and Webster Counties," we worked collaboratively to review data about our communities and to study our health status. Next, we prioritized health concerns to work on together over the next five years. Finally, we identified strategies for addressing each of these priorities.
The resulting South Heartland Community Health Improvement Plan 2013-2018 has five health priority areas: Obesity, Cancer, Mental Health, Substance Abuse, and Access to Health Care. With our many partners who participated in the assessment and planning, and others who may join us as we implement the plan, we seek to improve the health and quality of life of South Heartland residents by focusing on these priorities. It will take a collective effort to reach the goals laid out in this Community Health Improvement Plan. We hope you will join us in our collaborative work to improve the health of our communities and that you will find a place in this plan where you can contribute to these efforts.
