January 2023 CEO Report

Happy New Year!

While the holidays always seem to be busy, the month of January continues to be exciting at Excelsior Springs Hospital! Wrapping up the old year, while starting up the new causes much work, but the fresh new energy that a new year brings in is contagious! Introducing new service lines, providing additional community education and wrapping up the hospital’s annual audit is our priority for the month.

2022 was a building year for sure. Did you know that the hospital has over 300 employees and most of our programs have experienced double-digit growth? We are excited to add even more services to our expanding portfolio – with additional Pediatric services, Nephrology and Ear, Nose and Throat (ENT) services coming in the first quarter of 2023! Our current providers and staff continue to add more patients to the schedules every day and our entire team is pleased to welcome new and existing patients to our services.

Thank YOU for believing in us over the past year—for entrusting us with your care and for providing great feedback related to our services. Your comments help us continue to grow. We value and appreciate every word that is shared.

My New Year’s Wish for our community is good health, well-being, safety and clarity as the new year begins. We continue to grow with services and support to bring much needed resources to our community. Our partnerships are growing. We wish you the best and hope that 2023 will be a fresh and fabulous new year!

My best wishes,
Kristen DeHart
