    It's the little things that keep us up at night. Care givers at Memorial Hospital work hard to facilitate a safe, comfortable, and successful pregnancy. But it’s the personal attention and the family-friendly recovery rooms that ensure that our littlest patients (and their mommies) aren’t just cared for, they’re pampered.
  • Bigger than you think...  and growing, too.
    Bigger than you think... and growing, too. Sure, the staff of Memorial Hospital can stitch up the common laceration and set a broken bone. But did you know that ongoing hospital expansion is allowing specialized services like shoulder anthroplasty and total knee replacement to be performed locally?
  • People don't care how much you know until they know how much you care.
    People don't care how much you know until they know how much you care. The doctors of Memorial Hospital average 22 years of general practitioner experience right here in our community. Beyond just being your health care providers, they’re your neighbors, fellow committee members, and friends.

    Everyday we're adding life to years. We believe that quality of life is every bit as important as quantity of life. That’s why our senior living residences focus heavily on independence, activity and fun. We know every moment really does matter.

Memorial Community Health Launches “Care Matters” Initiative

November 21, 2016

Memorial Community Health, Inc. (MCHI) is pleased to announce the introduction of its “Care Matters” culture of CARE. Care Matters emphasizes and brings to light the high standards that MCHI has set in caring for patients and residents, in caring for their employees, and in how their employees work with each other as a team.  

"Aimed at setting high expectations, Care Matters is a revitalization of our internal behavior standards as well as a way to publicly share the promises we make towards excellence in serving our community,” comments Diane Keller, Memorial Community Health CEO.  “As a healthcare organization, our top priority is keeping the safety, health and wellbeing of those we serve first and foremost.  It’s also important that our employees know we are committed to their success and to empowering them to promote excellence in carrying out our mission.”

To promote organization-wide participation in the Care Matters initiative, three committees were formed to define the promises of care expressed by:

Each committee summarized their core message into concise ‘C.A.R.E’ statements that will be posted throughout Memorial Hospital, Memorial Community Care, East Park Villa, Memorial Rehabilitation and the Memorial Health Clinics in Aurora, Clay Center and Harvard. The statements incorporate and expand upon the existing motto:  Because every moment matters.

“We encourage the public to share their experience with us about the care received at Memorial Community Health,” adds Tina Hunt, Marketing Director for the organization. “We are excited and energized by the Care Matters initiative, and invite everyone to visit our website and like us on Facebook to learn more. We also welcome suggestions for how we can excel at the service we provide. Feel free to email, call or simply stop by our offices.”
