Introduction to William Newton Hospital
William Newton Hospital (WNH) has a proud heritage of excellence in patient care. Although WNH 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 2017, including newborns, totaled 1,002 plus 898 placed in observation status. There were 1,382 surgeries, 938 endoscopies, 269 newborn deliveries, 9,823 visits to the emergency room, 2,996 home health visits, 59 admissions to swing-beds, 12,907 rural health clinic visits and 41,725 other outpatient services. 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 20 members on the active staff and a growing number of consulting physicians and allied professionals currently in excess of 70.
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 and orthopedic surgery, skilled swing beds, home healthcare, audiology, cardiac rehabilitation, wound care, rheumatology, infusion therapy and many other diagnostic and therapeutic services. The hospital operates five 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.
Meeting the health needs of the people in the area remains our highest priority. If you would like additional information, please contact Sarah Bryant, Director of Marketing & Business Development (620-221-2300 x1113 or email).
