I wanted to take a moment to let everyone know what’s going on at NCHD upcoming in September. The facility has been working tirelessly to improve employee and patient satisfaction scores over the past year. We have started to see an upward trend in our patient volumes, and we are excited to be able to serve the community members of Niobrara County.
We have also been working to improve our facility and the business office billing and processes for the past year and we are starting to see significant measurable changes from the community’s perspective. The hospital continues to struggle with RNs for the ER, but we have been very happy with the travelers who have devoted their time to our facility and our patients.
The hospital applied for and received a grant from the state that allows us to purchase a new portable X-ray machine for Radiology. We are excited to continue making facility upgrades with the community’s generosity and the state grants we continue to apply for.
