100s and Counting!

Tuesday, December 7 marked the 6-month anniversary since Spotsylvania Regional Medical Center officially opened.  To date, we have celebrated many “100s”: from the number of ED visits in one day to the number of new members we have brought into our community.  Our departments have far exceeded the 100 mark in only a short time, and each looking forward to celebrating the next achievements.  Recently, our facility celebrated our ranking in the HCAPS survey and we are currently ranked number 1 in the division and number 6 in the company in patient satisfaction.  In 6 months, we have accomplished great things and several departments have shared their experiences:

  • According to Carol Owen, Senior Leader of Women and Children’s Services, Labor & Delivery celebrated their 100th delivery on October 7th, only 4 months after the first delivery occurred on May 28th. In discussing the experience with their patients, they have all expressed how pleased they are and what a wonderful experience they had at SRMC. Carol says, “Reaching the 100 milestone mark was a very exciting day for our staff and physicians. We are all now looking forward to the 200th delivery which we are hoping will be in the month of December.”
  • Wendy Campbell said, “As a combined department of Cath Lab and Interventional Radiology, we have all dedicated many hours to great patient care.”  As of October 12, the Cath lab treated their 100th patient, and to date, they have treated 166 patients. 
  • Interventional Radiology has also exceeded the 100 mark and has treated a total of 233 patients. 
  • Rob Toonkel, Leader of Guest Services, shared that over 215 volunteers, more than 12,000 hours of service have been provided at SRMC.  He said, “As the quote goes, it’s not the hours you put in, it ‘s what you put in the hours. Every minute represents something that added value to a visit, be it something that comforted, simplified, eased, or facilitated. “
