About William Newton Memorial Hospital
William Newton Hospital has a proud 90 year heritage of excellence in patient care. Although William Newton provides the latest in technology to assist the physician in diagnosis and treatment, our strength also lies in the personalized, compassionate patient care that is often not found in a large medical center.
WNH is located in Winfield, Kansas, a community of 12,000 just 45 minutes southeast of Wichita. Winfield is an attractive community with a four year college and an exceptionally low incidence of crime. Our service population is approximately 40,000 and the area boasts a diverse economy with a growing number of manufacturers and services. In short, Winfield provides excellent cultural, recreational, educational, and employment opportunities.
WNH is classified as a Critical Access, not-for-profit community general hospital licensed for 25 acute care and swing beds. Hospital acute care admissions in 2011 totaled 1,006 plus 691 placed in observation status. There were 620 major surgeries, 1,913 minor surgeries and endoscopies, 257 newborn deliveries, 7,535 visits to the emergency room, 3,269 home health visits, 74 admissions to swing status, 34,610 other outpatient visi...ts and 13,951 rural health clinic visits. The hospital is certified by CMS and is self supporting, receiving no tax subsidies. WNH is fortunate to have a well diversified and excellent medical staff including 18 members on the active staff and a growing number of consulting physicians and allied professionals currently in excess of 60.
Because of constant change in health care delivery, WNH has been pro-active in providing new services. In addition to acute care, the hospital provides same-day surgery, skilled swing beds, home healthcare, audiology, cardiac rehabilitation, and many other diagnostic and therapeutic services. The hospital operates four rural health clinics in Cowley, Elk and Chautauqua counties and an occupational health program to assist local business and industry. WNH has also developed cooperative arrangements with other providers for cancer treatment and renal dialysis.
An up-to-date infrastructure has always been a hallmark of WNH. Since 1998, improvements include major expansion/renovation of the emergency and radiology departments, lobby, ambulance facilities, surgical suites and the Family Birthing Center. A state of the art cancer radiation treatment center opened in 2001 and an organization-wide computer system including clinical records was installed in 2003. The Physicians Pavilion and Winfield Healthcare Center provide medical office space on the WNH campus for a number of active staff and consulting physicians. The hospital completed a $5 million replacement of acute care patient rooms in 2009 with assistance of the William Newton Healthcare Foundation. A $6.5 million upgrade to the Family Birthing Center and hospital energy system will be completed by August, 2012.
Meeting the health needs of the people in the area remains our highest priority.
