Plans Being Finalized for a New MCH&HS Clinic in Tekamah

Blair, Neb. - Tim Plante, President and CEO of Memorial Community Hospital & Health System, said earlier this week that plans are being finalized to begin building a new multi-million dollar clinic in Tekamah. The new medical facility will be 6,000 square foot and will be located on the south side of Highway 32, just west of town. Plans to build this new clinic began more than two years ago.

For now, the facility will include a medical clinic. Original plans included spaces for a dentist and eye doctor, but the cost of new construction has kept other partners from joining the project. However, the facility is being built so that it may be expanded if there is interest at a later date. The clinic will look very similar to the Fort Calhoun Clinic with six exam rooms and space for radiology and lab services. There will also be office space for three providers, a conference room, and a separated waiting area for sick and well patients.

Currently, MCH&HS is in the process of selecting a general contractor. Once that is done, bids will be sought from subcontractors. The tentative start date will be late fall and the construction period is estimated at 10 months. "We are anxious to begin this project and deliver a top notch medical facility for the residents of Tekamah," said Plante. "We are committed to this community. It has been a long process, but we are confident our patients will be pleased once the new clinic is complete."

It has been a great year for Memorial Community Hospital and Health System.

We continue to excel from a quality and patient satisfaction perspective, we are solid financially, and we continue to develop ways for people to access health services in Burt and Washington Counties. A key piece of our work this past year was a focus on developing a new MCH&HS Mission statement: To Partner With Our Community to Heal, Nurture, and Promote Wellness.

2016 thumbnail

Read the full annual report. 
(PDF Download)

Highlights from the past year include:

Service – Our outpatient satisfaction survey results for surgery and Emergency Department continue to be very high! Our clinics, diagnostics and inpatient scores continue to be well above national averages as well. We very much appreciate those who take the time to answer the phone surveys and especially value the comments to help us recognize our high performers and identify opportunities to improve.

Quality – Our communities should be very proud of our MCH&HS providers and staff! MCH&HS was honored by the Nebraska Hospital Association with the 2014 Quest for Quality Award for our work on reducing readmissions with our patient call back program for pneumonia and CHF patients, making MCH&HS the first hospital ever in Nebraska to receive this honor two years in a row.

People – We continue to work every day to make this a great place for providers to practice and our staff to work. Key additions to our provider team in 2014 include Cindy Reed, D.O. in our Emergency Department, Sandra Baumberger, MD in our Blair Clinic, and Carla Schneider, PA-C and RaeAnn Meyer, PA-C in our Walk-In Clinic. Stewardship (or Finance) – We continue to have strong financial performance. Challenges we continue to face include the number of patients without insurance or insufficient coverage, bad debt, and the rising costs associated with operating a small health system for personnel and materials.

Growth – Our future is based on developing strong relationships with our patients, getting new people to access our services, and retaining patients during their life journey. During 2014 we had the additional challenge of agreeing to payment reductions in return for staying "in-network" with a major insurer. We began 2015 back in-network, but we are working to provide services with fewer resources and staff support this year.

Community – Impacting the community goes beyond providing great health services in our clinics, at the hospital or in your homes. Hopefully you have seen us making a greater effort to be involved in community activities, like the MCH Foundation sponsored Dash & Splash as well as health fairs and screenings. We know we need to keep reaching out if we want people to be healthier and making good health decisions.

The Blair Area Law Enforcement Trust (BALET) has reached its $7,500 fundraising goal to purchase trauma kits for police officers' vehicles.

The BALET, established in 2016, is a designated agency fund, managed and administered by the Blair Area Community Foundation (BACF). The trauma kits are the trust's first fundraising project. Using funds from the BALET, the Blair Police Department (BPD) will purchase a total of 12 small kits will be placed in patrol officers' vehicles. Police leadership will carry a total of five large kits. Donations to the BALET for the trauma kits came from individuals, a Walmart grant and from Memorial Community Hospital & Health System (MCH&HS), which presented $1,340. The BACF also donated $1,275.

MCH&HS invited Lt. Aaron Barrow of the BPD to attend its armed intruder/active shooter training because police officers would be one of the first to respond to the scene of a shooting incident. According to the MCH&HS Foundation, employees learned that many of the victims in shooting incidents "might have survived had the first on the scene and into the 'hot zone' could have administered quick and simple first aid while the scene was being secured."

"When looking at each entity's response, we quickly learned if the Blair Police Department were to respond to an incident of active shooter/armed intruder in our community, not just the hospital, they did not have the appropriate tools to help prepare victims for rescue and transport to the medical center," the Foundation stated in a release.

The MCH&HS trauma coordinator obtained a few donations of supplies from the Nebraska Medicine trauma team, and the BPD requested grant dollars to obtain the balance of supplies: 12 thigh rigs, four sling packs and four litters (portable stretchers). The thigh rigs contain quick-use medical supplies, like gloves, trauma sheers and tourniquets. The litters attach to the sling packs and provide a quick way to move victims out of a "hot zone" and to a safer location for emergency medical technicians to treat them.
