Cloud County Health Center is committed to providing quality healthcare in a caring and professional manner. As the ever changing face of healthcare requires us to become more efficient and precise in serving the community, we must pursue improving our facility to accomplish this task. State of the art equipment and physicians with top notch skills are only a part of the overall equation. We must look to the future and strategically plan for our community needs. This is a multi-faceted task as we endeavor to ensure all aspects of the community's healthcare needs are met. We must consider patient migration patterns and service needs as well as the development of specialty clinics and the transition from inpatient to outpatient care. We must also consider financial impacts, clinical integration and access to care for possible future facility design. Regional affiliation and cooperation among the healthcare entities will be paramount to the success of any plan implementations. To develop the most beneficial options for the community's healthcare needs, Cloud County Health Center has initiated a continuing dialogue with Salina Regional Health Center.
