Message from our CEO

I am pleased to welcome you to our redesigned website. Our goal was to create a user-friendly site enabling you to navi­gate quickly and easily to the infor­ma­tion you seek about IMH. The redesign includes: a provider direc­tory, advanced search capa­bil­i­ties, a maga­zine qual­ity blog, a sepa­rate and inte­grated microsite for the IMH Foun­da­tion, and a revised sitemap.

As you browse our new site, you will note the many excit­ing changes that have occurred at IMH. The construc­tion of the medical office build­ing has allowed us to bring our providers (the Ivin­son Medical Group) under one roof enabling them to collab­o­rate and bring hospi­tal outpa­tient services directly to you in one central loca­tion. We’ve also invested in the latest tech­nol­ogy, for exam­ple our Center for Surgery utilizes a surgi­cal robot; Radi­ol­ogy and Imag­ing offers 3D mammo­grams and a 64-Slice CT Scan­ner that creates cross-sectional high reso­lu­tion images; and our Cancer Center touts its dual-energy linear accelerator.

Some­times it’s the small things that people appre­ci­ate and that includes being able to park and walk to their appoint­ment shel­tered from the elements. Our covered park­ing area with direct access to central eleva­tors is very much appre­ci­ated by our patients and their families.

But, we are not only focused on improv­ing the hospi­tal and the care we offer, we are also reach­ing out to the to the commu­nity to make a differ­ence in the lives of our friends and neigh­bors. During the past year, we have offered free diabetes classes; a geri­atric health­care webi­nar series; a demen­tia care­giver webi­nar series; a bi-monthly Walk with a Doc’ event; a Finan­cial Well­ness Series; Stress Reduc­tion through Mind­ful­ness sessions, and we supported Project SEARCH.

All our hard work has not gone unno­ticed. We take pride in the awards and recog­ni­tion we have earned over the past year. One we are partic­u­larly honored by is being desig­nated as one of the Top 20 Rural Commu­nity Hospi­tals in the nation by the National Rural Health Asso­ci­a­tion. (There are 811 hospi­tals desig­nated as rural in the U.S.) IMH also earned the desig­na­tion as a 4-Star hospi­tal from the Center of Medic­aid and Medicare (CMS) and our Extended Care Unit recently received a 5-Star rating from CMS.

We are on an excit­ing journey−one of contin­u­ous improve­ment. All our efforts have been under­taken with you in mind. Our goal is to provide you with excep­tional patient-centered care.

I’d like to thank the market­ing team and our design part­ners, Grid­work LLC, for the months of hard work to create this website that is a reflec­tion of the improve­ments at IMH. We welcome the oppor­tu­nity to care for you and your family’s medical needs and a chance to earn your trust.

Let us know how we’re doing. We welcome your feedback.
