CEO's Message

Welcome to Atchison Hospital website. Thank you for taking the time to learn about us. I invite you to use this resource for your healthcare information needs. Atchison Hospital is your hospital. We are here to serve you and your family and our goal is to have you think first of the Atchison Hospital, our physicians and the services we provide when there is a healthcare need.

For over 100 years, Atchison Hospital's mission has remained focused on improving our community's health and quality of life as well as care for our patients in extraordinary ways. This commitment means that we strive to bring up-to-date advances in medicine and medical technology along with highly trained staff and patient-centered physicians.

Our new state-of-the-art facility has 25 private, family-friendly patient rooms that are designed for comfort and privacy. The eight bed Emergency Department located at the front of the hospital has a separate entry and dedicated parking. The new large surgical suites are built to accommodate video and fiber-optic technology. In addition, we are continually investing in our electronic medical records system resulting in improved patient safety and quality of care. As well, our electronic medical records system allows our physicians secure access to patient information and images from office or home.

Though the bricks and mortar and technical equipment are essential resources for our organization, the heart and soul of Atchison Hospital is its people. It is our physicians, nurses and other care givers who every day blend compassion with the marvel of technology to make a real difference in the lives of our patients.

I am confident in the quality of services we provide at Atchison Hospital and I am especially proud of our hospital and medical staff who provide that care. Every day, we strive to be your local healthcare provider of choice when it comes to your healthcare needs. I welcome you to Atchison Hospital as a visitor, a patient, an applicant or an interested physician. I am confident that your experience with us will be a positive one.
