Hello and Happy Spring!

Our Excelsior Springs Hospital team continues to grow, and we are very excited to be a part of this amazing community. Many of our team members will participate in the Good Samaritan 5K Tortoise and Hare Walk/Race this coming weekend.  Also, the Hospital has been actively engaged with Excelsior Springs SAFE, Rotary and the Excelsior Springs THRIVE events. Tina Cook, Clinical and Community Education Coordination has been extremely busy with countless sessions and guest speakers at the Community Center. We look forward to attending the Excelsior Springs Mayor’s Prayer Breakfast in May. 

Our Clinics, Emergency Department and Hospital are seeing more patients than ever. Word is out that quality healthcare is right here, in Excelsior Springs.  Lawson Primary Care is also staying busy.  The word is out about great services, close to home!    

Our Foundation’s Golf Tournament will be held on Friday, June 2, 2023. If you are a golfer, we have a great day planned for you! If you do not play the game, we have great auction items lined up and a chance to win cash prizes with our “third-annual” golf ball drop! For just a small contribution that supports our Excelsior Springs Healthcare Foundation, you could be the winner of $1,000!

And lastly, we are all saddened to learn of the passing of Dr. Theodore Baldwin on April 8th. Dr. Baldwin provided amazing care to many members of this community over the years and the Baldwin family is well loved. We share our condolences with their family and hope that the many messages and stories shared will provide them with comfort. Dr. Baldwin will be greatly missed, yet remembered always for his contributions to our community’s health story.
