Newman Regional Health


We feel fortunate to have received reflections from our patients about how Newman Regional Health has helped them. Here are some of our favorites:

1.      A big shout out to the nurses, CNAs, Dr. Fissha and his cardiology group for the great care my mother received this week! Thank you, thank you, thank you!    M.H. 

         While recently hospitalized at Newman, I received outstanding care!  Dr. Anna La Sota was so thorough and compassionate.  She took the time to explain what was going on and why.  She also listened to my concerns.  I felt like she helped me to be part of my " health care team".  Also, the nursing staff on the third floor was wonderful, especially Kaitlin!  I was very impressed with my care and would not hesitate to recommend Newman to anyone!  - J.L.

It has been a very interesting / scary couple of weeks for me.
Two weeks ago I came to the ER with chest pains, after multiple attempts it took a nitro patch to get my blood pressure under control --- diagnosis= hypothyroid.
Saturday night my stomach was tight like a basketball and the pain got to be to much to handle, went to the ER around 0400, after blood tests, MRI and ultrasound, my gallbladder was infected. They admitted Sunday morning and I had a two hour surgery on Monday. Success and I go home today.
I can't give enough praise to the nurses here. Lorna was my ER nurse both visits, she is a traveling nurse and was more than awesome both times, this visit I also had Hannah in the ER.
During my stay on the fourth floor, I had five angels taking care of me. Joy, Kim, Bobby, Amanda and Chelsea. These ladies were a blessing from God and the care that they provided was astronomical to say the least. All of the radiologic and anesthesia folks.
I can't go without a shoutout to all of the doctors, Dr. Tovar, Dr. Detwiler and my surgeon Dr. Turner.  ---------------------------S.B.

A big pat on the back to Newman Regional Health ER!!!   My daughter had a stroke and due to the fast work of Dr. Watters and the gals in the ER getting her the medications she needed before being shipped, she is looking at a full recovery!!!  We tend to voice about the bad and don't say thanks for the great things ....  Thanks again  S.I.

Local professional donates exclusive item to be auctioned at Denim and Diamonds; stating "This is the least I can do to Thank NRH for the excellent care received. What a valuable asset NRH is to Emporia and the Region. Amazing people work at NRH.” T.M.

While visiting Emporia, I fell and hit my head and I was taken to the ER.  I was most impressed with the nurses and Dr. Brown who ordered the CT scan and x-rays and many other tests.  After the tests came back clear I was released home.  I just want to say Thank You to your staff for the excellent care while in your hospital.  M.F.

My family member, M.J., is a patient in the Occupational Therapy department.  Thank you to Brenda, Seth and the entire OT staff for your kindness and care.  

I recently was a patient on the 3rd floor. I was really scared at first, knowing I would be a patient at Newman Regional Health, and had even thought about Kansas City, Wichita, or Topeka as options. I was amazed and so pleased with the care, compassion, empathy, and my outcome at Newman Regional Health. I’ll never consider anywhere but Newman Regional Health in the future. Nobody wants to be in a hospital, but my care was incredible!” L. L.

“As the Mother of a Student Athlete I’m so pleased to have Newman Regional Health providing a Saturday Morning Sports Medicine Clinic, and know they are expanding their Orthopedic, and Emergency Medicine Programs. It’s just re-assuring all the way around.” C. @ Local Business

“Recently, I spent five days in Newman Regional Health. From the start in the Emergency Department, the R.N. who was in charge of me was very professional in her duties and my prognosis of possible pneumonia and atrial fibrillation. I was put in ICU with Drs. Longwell and Roberts in charge, along with more than a dozen R.N.’s and hospital support staff. Of those nurses who took care of me that week, at least half were our ESU School of Nursing graduates who were excellent in their duties and care. Did I receive good care…? YES!!” C. H.

"I am an employee of NRH and recently a family member of a patient of one of our wonderful cardiologist, Dr Roberts. My Dad had been on numerous appointments at the VA and experiencing his symptoms for awhile, and getting nowhere with his care. I urged my parents to see if his benefits would cover seeing one of our cardiologist. I knew and trusted our cardiologist as well as both cardio ARNP's. Luckily, we were able to get things going with Dr Roberts. To shorten this story up just a little, Dr Roberts did more for my Dad in a month than anyone else. The appointment to talk to a VA cardiologist was not until late September, with 80% blockage in two arteries, I am not convinced that he would have made it, or that the condition would not have been worse. So, my forever thanks to Dr. Roberts and Tammy. Sometimes physicians to not receive enough thanks, and I just wanted to publicly make my appreciation known.".....T.T.

“Recently, while working I had an accident, and work policy requires employees to immediately get a drug/alcohol screening for such accidents. Be it embarrassing and not necessary, I had to pursue the screening. It was after 8pm so I went directly to Express Care and they needed to send me directly to Newman Regional Health’s Emergency Department. At first I thought, great this is going to take forever. To my pleasure, I was in/out of Express Care and the Emergency Department in less than 20 minutes total. I was treated with complete dignity and respect, which was important as I was embarrassed already. In conclusion I would recommend Newman Regional Health’s Emergency Department because of their quick attention and incredible professionalism.”  S.C.
