Medicaid expansion has taken center stage in Topeka, and we want to ensure that our communities understand how expansion would help our local hospitals, providers and the people we serve.
All of our organizations are dedicated to fully supporting our communities and our state, and the most important benefit of expansion is providing health insurance to 150,000 working Kansans. These are our neighbors who either make too much to qualify for traditional Medicaid or don’t make enough to afford insurance. If they do purchase insurance, it is often with an extremely high deductible that covers only the most catastrophic hospitalizations.
Look around our communities, and you will see friends and neighbors who would benefit from insuring those 150,000 Kansans through Medicaid expansion: waitresses, cooks, retail clerks, entrepreneurs who are just getting started, young farmers or ranchers working to turn a profit, artists, construction workers, or people working multiple part-time jobs to make ends meet ¬¬¬– plus employees of small businesses that cannot afford to offer health insurance, those who work on a contract basis, or even state employees.

Golfer or Non-golfer? It makes no difference. You can still support a very worthy cause.
The Nemaha Valley Health Care Foundation is sponsoring the 23rd Annual Charity Golf Classic that will be held Friday, June 21, 2019 at the 18-hole Spring Creek Golf Course in Seneca, KS.
This annual tournament is being held to benefit healthcare in Seneca and the surrounding communities. Nemaha Valley Health Care Foundation was established in 1990 to enhance the current and future health care needs of Nemaha Valley Community Hospital and the communities they serve. Through various fundraising initiatives, the Foundation contributes to enhancing technology, supporting the Hospital’s core medical programs, and most importantly, improving patient centered services.
Nemaha Valley Community Hospital is excited to announce that they have been recognized by The Chartis Center of Rural Health and the National Organization of State Offices of Rural Health (NOSORH) for overall excellence in Quality, Outcomes and Patient Perspective, reflecting top quartile performance among all rural hospitals in the nation.
“These achievements are very gratifying and validates our commitment to providing the best healthcare possible to our community, while maintaining an efficient and effective facility,” said Kiley Floyd, CEO.
The Performance Leadership Awards are determined each year using iVantage Health Analytics’ Hospital Strength INDEX®, the industry’s most comprehensive and objective assessment of rural hospital performance. Leveraging data from public data sources, the INDEX aggregates data from 50 rural-relevant metrics across eight pillars to derive a single overall percentile rating for all Critical Access Hospitals and Rural & Community Hospitals.
