Welcome The Quality Care You Want. Close By. Big City Medicine — Small Town Care was the theme of a physician recruitment video we compiled in 2011. It is also an appropriate focus for this report to our community. The video extolled the surprising benefits a physician could realize when choosing Decatur County Memorial Hospital (DCMH). Here one finds the technology, clinical excellence, relationships, and community that are so important to a physician and quite frankly, prospective patients. Upon my arrival at Decatur County Memorial Hospital my experience was similar. I was impressed with its extensive programs, services and the advancements of the Hospital compared to others of similar size I’d seen around the country. Later in the year my instincts were confirmed when we were named a “Top 20 Critical Access Hospital in the Nation” in the Hospital Strength Index.

My first impressions upon arriving at Decatur County Memorial Hospital were lasting and I’ve been struck with how often in our lives it takes a new objective opinion to help us see realities and put them in perspective. We have difficulty appreciating the change in which we’re immersed and rural communities are no different when it comes to their Hospital. My experiences helped me see DCMH in a different light and I hope this report will bring clarity for you and our community on several aspects of our Hospital. After participating in focus groups around Decatur County I know our Hospital is drastically different from others and from what it was when it opened 90 years ago or even what it was 20 years ago. In fact, we’re different today than when I arrived and our changes will continue as we do our best to meet the needs of the community. Our Board has approved plans for an addition of a new Medical-Surgical unit, and construction has begun. The new space will increase convenience and satisfaction for patients as they use our services. Our staff is undergoing extensive training and implementing new processes to ensure exceptional experiences for our patients and visitors. In the last year we implemented a new website, grew our social media presence and continue to seek other means to reach out to our community and immerse ourselves in it. Decatur County Memorial Hospital is your Hospital, providing valuable community services locally, 24 hours a-day seven days-a-week. I sincerely appreciate your support of our facility, whether it’s as a patient, volunteer or donor, all of which allow us to grow and improve. Please know that I am always interested in your feedback on our Hospital and your suggestions on how we might better meet your needs. We look forward to being your Hospital of choice for years to come. Thank you for taking time to learn more about DCMH by reading this report. As you read on you’ll see why DCMH is your Hospital, and quite capable of providing “The Quality Care You Want. Close By.” Sincerely,

Linda Simmons, CEO

Mission & Vision Mission Statement DCMH advances the health and wellness of our community by providing high-value patientcentered care, leadership and education.

Vision Statement To be the provider of choice in Southeastern Indiana by delivering quality healthcare through best practices and innovative partnerships.

DNV Accreditation Decatur County Memorial Hospital received word in 2011 of achieving national accreditation from DNV Healthcare. It is the newest and first Medicare approved hospital accreditation program. DNV sets itself apart by utilizing the ISO 9001 quality management system with the Medicare hospital standard and by requiring the organization to evaluate the continuum of patient care throughout our entire healthcare system and take measured steps to improve when it is warranted. Hospital accreditation speaks to professionalism and the ability to meet specified standards of care. DNV hospital accreditations address the demands of quality driven hospitals that are dedicated to patient centered care. Being accredited also brings important financial benefits since it allows DCMH to receive reimbursement for the patients covered by Medicare and Medicaid.

Coming Soon to DCMH‌ Phase I Project A vertical expansion of two floors will provide a new third floor medical/surgical unit to enhance patient privacy, comfort and convenience. Featuring all private rooms and full in-room baths, the unit will enhance the privacy and comfort of patients. Larger rooms will provide added space for family and visitors and some will be dialysis capable. A new elevator will provide private and convenient access from the emergency room eliminating the current moving of beds through public hallways. The new unit will also incorporate the Advanced Care Unit (ACU) which is currently located on the Hospital’s third floor. The fourth floor is for future service expansion. A capital campaign will support a proposed second phase.

Memorial & Naming Opportunities Patient rooms in the new unit may be named in memory or tribute for a lump sum gift of cash, securities or real estate of $25,000, or one pledged over time, e.g. $5,000 annually for five years. For more information on this opportunity, please call (812) 663-1220.

Surgery — 2,065 Procedures Today more than ever, if you are faced with the prospect of a surgery or an outpatient procedure, you need certain assurances. Not only do you want the best and safest possible procedure, you want to feel comfortable with the care you’ll receive during your stay. Quality surgical and outpatient procedures are commonplace at DCMH, and the unit consistently receives high patient satisfaction comments. However, many people are not familiar with the breadth and depth of the services offered locally.

Big City Medicine. Small Town Care. Low-Dose, 128-Slice CT Scanner The Siemens Defiinition AS+ 128-slice CT Scanner is the world’s first “smart” CT that can adapt to virtually any patient’s specific medical needs. This CT scanner provides flexibility and allows DCMH to do any kind of exam, from vessel imaging, cardiac tests to cancer staging, on any patient, according to the needs of the individual. Although all CT scanners have to use some amount of radiation to create images of the body, the Definition AS+ actively manages this radiation dose in 100 percent of Spiral examinations, blocking unnecessary doses for that particular patient before and after the spiral scan.

AirStrip OB Fetal Monitoring System The AirStrip OB Fetal Monitor delivers vital patient waveform data — including fetal heartbeat and maternal contraction patterns — in virtual real-time directly from the labor and delivery unit to a Physician’s smartphone. This allows Physicians to monitor their patients 24/7, even when they are not in the hospital.

Simulation Lab Our Simulation Lab is available for any healthcare professional to use. A simulation is a programmed scenario that resembles a real life situation. It is used to replicate a clinical situation to provide healthcare professionals to practice their responses in a safe learning environment.

Hyperbaric Oxygen Chambers Hyperbaric oxygen therapy is a simple but effective treatment in which you breathe pure oxygen inside a pressurized chamber. The therapy quickly delivers high concentrations of oxygen to your bloodstream which helps increase your body’s own natural wound-healing abilities.

Telemental Health Our Telemental Health system allows us to connect to other healthcare providers in Indiana via web cam for behavioral health issues. This service allows us to access specialty services 24/7 through a partnership with Bloomington Meadows and InRHA.

Investing In Your Hospital Donors to our Hospital are investing not only in the Hospital but through its efforts impacting the community. They appreciate the importance of the work of DCMH and support the facility in a variety of ways. Some gifts are made by grateful patients and their families, while others are made in memory or tribute to individuals or special occasions. All of the gifts help ensure the stability of healthcare in Decatur County and help fund special programs and equipment. Just a few of the grants made by our Hospital Foundation are listed below:

Hospital Foundation of Decatur County

Community Flu Vaccines — $10,000 Decatur County Memorial Hospital was committed to providing flu vaccines to the community. In tough economic times, rather than risk a community outbreak, many residents would need them free of charge. Program administration would cost DCMH in excess of $30,000. The Hospital Foundation assisted with a major grant to allow the initiative to take place.

Complementing Cancer Care — $5,000 The stresses of chemotherapy can inhibit the benefits of the treatment process. A Hospital Foundation grant enabled a program to become reality that enhanced the patient experience and provided additional comfort at a difficult time. Foundation funds purchased an additional blanket warmer and other amenities, and provided massages for patients with the goal of reducing treatment anxiety.

ReCharge Program Pilot — $5,000 Childhood obesity continues to threaten today’s youth and their futures. In order to instill the benefits of increased activity and better nutrition the DCMH Dietary department sought to implement the ReCharge initiative with a pilot program and the hope of introducing it in schools countywide. A Foundation grant allowed the vision to become reality.

Adopt A Patient Room­­— “Reach” Campaign The Hospital Foundation and DCMH have announced a “Name the Room” effort as part of its “Reach” campaign for patient privacy, comfort and convenience. The room naming will support the new medical/ surgical unit in the vertical expansion under construction. Multi-year or lump sum gifts totaling $25,000 or more will allow businesses, organizations, families and others to have a special individual plaque placed in one of the new patient rooms and a centralized donor plaque providing a lasting legacy. For more information on the program contact the Hospital Foundation at (812) 663-1220 or foundation@dcmh.net. More information on the Reach Capital Campaign will be announced in late 2012 and may be found at www.dcmh.net/campaign.
