About Newman Regional Health
For nearly 100 years, Newman Regional Health has continuously expanded and added new healthcare services to meet the needs of our community. Partnering with our medical staff, we continue to exceed state and national goals for clinical excellence and patient safety.
Newman Regional Health is a not-for-profit 25-bed critical access hospital, owned by the citizens of Lyon County Kansas. Our 10-bed acute inpatient medical rehabilitation unit offers patients the opportunity to recover from serious illness, injury or debility close to home, after treatment at Newman Regional Health or after returning from more distant facilities.
In 2019 our state-of-the-art, 19-bed emergency room, 10-bed Clinical Decision Unit, and 4-room express care clinic opened on our campus to better serve the patients of Lyon County, Kansas and surrounding communities 24 hours per day.
More than 70 specialty and primary care physicians and advanced practice providers work in our hospital and outpatient clinic to provide better access to a wider range of diagnostic, therapeutic and surgical services than any other critical access hospital in the state of Kansas.
600 clinical, professional and support services employees and 225 volunteers support our medical staff in fulfilling our mission “to improve health in our community by providing high-quality care”.
Ranked among the Top 70 Critical Access Hospitals in the United States for 5 consecutive years and among the Top 10 Hospitals of any size in Kansas, Newman Regional Health is proud to call Emporia Kansas our home.
