Osceola Community Hospital Capital Campaign Development
The mission of Osceola community Hospital is to enhance and improve the quality of life of the population it serves, to be the area's premier health care service provider, and to have a positive impact on the lives of the people and community it serves.
Many updates to the facility, equipment and services have been accomplished through the years. In recent years major additions have included the Physicians' Office Complex, the Heartwood Heights Senior Independent Living/Assisted Living apartment complex, and the new state of the art Wellness/Rehab Center.
Osceola Community serves as the heart of the community's health and well-being. The hospital is licensed by the Iowa Department of Health as a Critical Access Hospital with 25 acute care beds.
An active physician base offering excellent comprehensive care includes three Family Practice Physicians, an acredited Nurse Practicioner, three General Surgeons, and a Radiologist. A highly trained, dedicated and motivated support staff of healthcare professionals serves the hospital and supports the work of the outstanding physician base. Consulting services and outpatient specialty clinics are provided by fifteen other specialists that include Orthopedics, Cardiology, Urology, Podiatry, and Neurology. The hospital is currently home to a 16-slice CT (Computed Tomography) Scanner, the first of its kind in the Sibley area.
Osceola Community Hospital's vision for the future continues the spirit of innovation and progress that has defined excellence in meeting the healthcare needs of the community. A four phase addition and renovation plan has been developed to carry the reputation of excellence and innovation built over the last 40 years forward through future generations.
The four phase project will help to guarantee the successful recruitment and retention of physicians, thus enhancing a strong physician base within the community. The future of Osceola Community Hospital to a great degree lies with the establishment, sustenance, and longevity of primary care and specialized care physicians. An updated, state of the art facility is crucial to continue to attract and retain the excellent physician base which exists today. The new and remodeled facility will give an opportunity to attract more specialty services with orthopedic surgery for knee and hip replacement, ophthalmology for cataract surgery, and ENT services being among the future possibilities. The addition and renovation are securing the current medical staff and helping to build for future recruiting in this area.
Many citizens consider ready access to excellent, high-quality healthcare a primary consideration in a decision to move to Osceola County or remain in the County. The growth and vitality of the community is directly correlated to the quality and availability of healthcare services, including an excellent hospital. The economic force of Osceola County will only continue to improve as a result of the increased services available through the transformation project.
Healthcare is more than the hospital, clinics, and physicians; it is the impact upon the community it serves.
Since its inception forty years ago, Osceola Community Hospital has developed into one of the outstanding independent, locally owned, non-tax supported, and community healthcare facilities in the state of Iowa. The unflinching support of Osceola County Residents and the surrounding communities has been a key factor in this success. The Osceola Community Hospital has a long reputation of meeting the community's healthcare and wellness needs through continuously updating and improving healthcare services and programs to ensure a state of the art facility is available to the citizens of Osceola County. In order to have healthcare services for the future, it is necessary to stay up to date, to keep moving forward and to stand at the forefront of medical advances.
The motto of Osceola Community Hospital is "The Hospital with a Heart." The hospital's Strategic Planning Objectives include being recognized as the healthcare provider of choice in the region by adopting new technology individually or by our partnership with other healthcare providers. The four phase Transformation project will build on the accomplishments of the past and carry forward into the next generations and standards of excellence, innovation and progress that have defined Osceola Community Hospital.
