New Hospital On Track to Open October 24th; Community Help Needed to Assist the Transition
Cloud County Health Center is excited to announce they plan to open the new North Central Kansas Medical Center on Monday, October 24th.
In an effort to meet the growing health care needs of the community, Cloud County Health Center broke ground on a new single-story, state-of-the-art health care facility in Concordia in March of 2021. The new facility will be located close to US Highway 81 along College Drive.
The Cloud County Health Center will change its name to North Central Kansas Medical Center as it transitions to the new building.
Dave Garnas, Administrator of the Cloud County Health Center, says they are asking for the community's assistance to help them move as they relocate to the new hospital this fall.
If you are interested in helping the hospital move, contact Ashley Hutchinson at (785) 243-1234.
Inside the new 76,000-square-foot hospital, Cloud County Health Center will have fourteen inpatient beds, 24/7 emergency department, a modern surgery suite for expanded surgical procedures, and outpatient services including a variety of pain management services and a wound care clinic.
The facility also will include the rural health clinic, the Family Care Center, which is staffed with seven providers offering appointments and a walk-in clinic with all appurtenant services such as Lab and Diagnostic Imaging. There also will be a variety of visiting specialty clinic services including Rheumatology, Nephrology, Dermatology, Ophthalmology, Cardiology, Podiatry, Audiology, Pulmonology, Neurology, Pediatric Neurology, OB/GYN and Orthopedic Surgery.
The new, larger Rehabilitation Department will provide physical therapy, occupational therapy, speech pathology and aquatic therapy, as well as additional modalities for cardiac rehabilitation patients.
