Mission: Anderson county hospital is a faith-based, not-for-profit community hospital committed to the highest levels of excellence in providing health care and health related services in a caring environment. As a member of saint luke's health system, we are dedicated to enhancing the physical, mental, and spiritual health of the communities we serve.
Programs: Anderson county hospital has been designated by the state of kansas and medicare as a critical access hospital. All program service expenses were incurred in furtherance of our mission, which is to ensure high quality healthcare in a caring environment for the communities we serve. In 2014, there were 11,164 patient days, 17,140 rural health clinic visits, 3,020 emergency room visits, 23,163 outpatient visits and 924 ambulance calls. We provided un-insured or indigent area children with 219 vaccinations. As a voluntary, nonprofit, rural critical access hospital, saint luke's hospital of garnett is committed to serving all who seek our services regardless of their socioeconomic status. Though we have provided such care throughout our 63-year history, our commitment to those without adequate means to pay for their care has grown significantly in recent years. The hospital participates in the medicaid and medicare programs and has a financial assistance policy for assisting people without adequate means to pay for their care. The hospital also provides health related activities and services in support of the community including providing an annual breast cancer awareness campaign and clinic and community wide health, weight, first aid and cpr classes. In addition, we provide a health careers class at the high school and are a work study site for high school students interested in health related careers.
