I would like to thank the ER staff and the nurses on the 2nd floor for the excellent care I recieved. Thanks
A very special thank you to the staff in the emergency room and on the third floor for the excellent care that was given to my mother, Martha McKay, this week! What an amazing experience! Not too many employees will sing Amazing Grace to a patient in the emergency room! Your efforts are greatly appreciated.
I had the most amazing experience while in the hospital. Thank you to all the staff I came in contact with during my stay!!!

Who really benefits here? The employees that give up every other weekend who will gain an increase of less than $5/pay period or Jim Kirkbride, CEO who will make 32 times more than that at $160 even after a historical loss of $11.6 million in 2017.

Yesterday in the state of the hospital meetings at Susan B Allen Memorial Hospital, the CEO made the announcement that through some creative math, he has figured out a way to save 68 employees from being laid off. One of the hospital's recent posts advertises several open positions, not sure how stable that environment actually is. But I digress, here is the math that Kirkbride speaketh of. Beginning with the pay period that starts this Sunday, everyone is getting a 1.5% raise, sounds awesome, but wait, he's taking away 5% from the weekend differential.

Here's the math per pay period (If you need help calculating your individual amount, just let me know and I will help you)

Full time employee working dayshift with every other weekend:
10÷10×1.6=$1.60 gain to the employee

To calculate the impact on your pay, simply replace the first 10 with your current base pay, For example, if you make $15 per hour your calculation would be 15÷10x1.6=$2.40

Full time employee working dayshift only weekdays, no weekends:
10x1.2=$12

To calculate the impact on your pay, simply divide your current base pay by 10 and multiply by 12. For example, if you make $15 per hour your calculation would be 15÷10x12=$18

For Jim Kirkbride, CEO, based only on his base salary of $277,109 obtained from the 2017 990, his increase per pay period is $160.

So I ask again, who really benefits here? The employees that give up every other weekend who will gain an increase of less than $5/pay period or Jim Kirkbride, CEO who will make 32 times more than that at $160?

(Disclaimer: I am not perfect but I have double, triple checked the numbers, if you don't agree with my math, please feel free to contact/correct me, I'll show you my indepth calculations if you show me yours lol)
Wow, that it is a lot of positions to fill. That is what happens when you lay off entire departments, fire long-term employees, mis-manage the hospital, reduce hours of full time employees, etc. Those that can, find other jobs, current employees protect their friends and would never let them come into such a toxic environment. Now you have a shortage of staff. When you treat people right, they stick it out in the down times (unfortunately since Kirkbride took over the budget the losses have been tens of millions.) Good luck on your recruitment, you can't treat people bad in a small community and word not get around.
Can you direct me to where I can access the hospital's prices online per the Price Transparency requirement effective Jan 1, 2019? Asking for a friend.
I worked here for 20 years, Jim Kirkbride, CEO, appears to be on a mission to destroy the hospital from within. Since he was hired in March 2016, the employees have had almost all benefits reduced or eliminated, business office department was outsourced, employee morale is lower than I've ever seen it, and the hospital lost over $10 million in 2017, and on pace to lose just under that in 2018. The hospital foundation board announced this month that it is providing $15 gift cards to employees this year, this is because the hospital couldn't afford the annual $15 turkey/ham gift certificates. The foundation's mission isn't to provide gifts to employees. The foundation "accepts charitable gifts to be used for maintaining and improving the programs and services at the Hospital that will have a positive impact on the health of our communities." Chase Locke, executive director of the foundation answers directly to Jim Kirkbride, CEO. Suzie Locke, Board of Trustees member is Chase Locke's sister-in-law.
Please help me get the word out to Susan B Allen Memorial Hospital employees. I started with 7 certificates yesterday and now we have 50. I need employees to know that the hospital isn't giving out the certificates this year but we have them covered.

A huge thank you to all the staff that came out to support USD 490’s Kansas Kids Fitness Day. Thank you for being a community partner with our district and supporting the students. The kids really enjoyed learning some basic first aid among many other things. This community is blessed with SBA and the caring staff that work there!
Had the pleasure of staying here after I had spinal surgery. I want to say that I have never been made to feel so at home and at peace as I did while there. The Nursing and CNA staff are top notch. Everyone who took part in my care were amazing. Thank you Amy,Amy, Amber, Ashley, YJ, Amanda, Ravyn, Ella, Heather. And anyone else who had a part of my care. Thank you Dr. Labrodo for your expert care in my case and thank you Cody for checking on me regularly I make sure I was well. Thank you Susan B Allen Memorial Hospital!!!
I want to thank the nurses on the 3rd floor, Dr. McKesey and his surgery team. I was transferred from Greenwwod County Hospital for emergency surgery on June 3rd. We were out of town and my husband was in the DK200 race. My kids and I were his support team. Everyone was so kind and patient with us knowing we were in a bind as far as transportation between all these towns as my kids were helping their mom and dad. Thank you so much for making a unbearable weekend bearable. I am feeling much better. Thank you again from the Prince family.

For those who suffer from Migraine Headaches, the search for relief is often without significant success. Treatment options vary from pharmaceutical approaches to avoidance of triggers. One approach that is less well known is the manual therapy (hands-on) approach of Physical Therapy. Through the use of joint mobilization and soft tissue mobilization, the PT seeks to regain joint and tissue function through increased mobility, tissue glide, and improved circulation of both blood flow and lymph flow. This promotes less stress on the neck and head and can lead to a reduction and/or cessation of headache pain. Treatments that may be utilized include CranioSacral Therapy, Myofascial release, Myofascial Decompression cupping, Muscle energy techniques, and joint mobilization. Susan Graham, PT, is a provider at Susan B. Allen who specializes in manual therapy techniques and has successfully treated Migraine Headaches. Call your physician for a referral today!

Every year, organizations from across the globe celebrate Autistic Pride Day on June 18 with a variety of events. The aim of this day is to raise awareness amongst those who are not on the autistic spectrum disorder so they do not see autistic people as requiring treatment, but as unique individuals.

This annual event was first celebrated by Aspies for Freedom in 2005 and they modeled Autistic Pride Day on the gay pride movement. One of the most significant aspects of the day is that it is not run by charities; it is run by autistic people themselves. Since its beginnings, Autistic Pride Day has been a community event. It is now a global celebration that takes place predominantly online. #oursba

Did you know?
When Alaska and Hawaii were being considered for statehood in the 1950s, more than 1,500 designs were submitted to President Dwight D. Eisenhower. Although some of them were 49-star versions, the vast majority were 50-star proposals. At least three of these designs were identical to the present design of the 50-star flag.[95] At the time, credit was given by the executive department to the United States Army Institute of Heraldry for the design.

Of these proposals, one created by 17-year-old Robert G. Heft in 1958 as a school project received the most publicity. His mother was a seamstress, but refused to do any of the work for him. He originally received a B– for the project. After discussing the grade with his teacher, it was agreed (somewhat jokingly) that if the flag were accepted by Congress, the grade would be reconsidered. Heft's flag design was chosen and adopted by presidential proclamation after Alaska and before Hawaii was admitted into the Union in 1959.[96] According to Heft, his teacher did keep to their agreement and changed his grade to an A for the project.[97] The 49- and 50-star flags were each flown for the first time at Fort McHenry on Independence Day, in 1959 and 1960 respectively.[97]

Did you know that Susan B. Allen did Calcium Scorings for just $99.00? The coronary calcium scan is a better predictor of coronary events than cholesterol screening or other risk factors. Calcium Scorings screen the Coronary Arteries for plaque or calcium build-up in the coronary arteries that can cause heart disease or can lead to a heart attack. Early detection of calcified cholesterol plaques in the cardiac arteries allows timely preventative medical therapies that stop the disease in its tracks.

Our Story

In the late 1920's, the community of El Dorado recognized the need for a modern hospital. Frank S. Allen, a prominent businessman in the community, contributed land and $100,000 for a hospital named in honor of his mother, Susan B. Allen.

In the spirit of community pride and care, the balance of the funds needed to build and equip the hospital was contributed by local citizens. The hospital opened its doors on September 19, 1931. In 1934, the F.S. Allen School of Nursing began educating and training nurses, which continued until 1961.

Throughout the years, a number of additions have taken place, making the facility unique in the range of services offered for its size. In recent years, the Hospital has made significant investments to upgrade patient rooms (to all private rooms) and technology. Health care, however advanced, is intensely personal. Susan B. Allen surrounds you with a sense of warmth and care that can only be found close to home.

Today, Susan B. Allen Memorial Hospital is a not-for-profit, general acute-care medical facility, licensed for 48 beds, including Medical/Surgical and Skilled Care, SBA Family Birth Center, SBA Dialysis Center, and the SBA Cancer Center. The Emergency Department provides 24/7 emergency medicine and physician coverage, and is a stroke-ready facility. With over 400 staff members, we’ve established, and live up to the reputation of providing personal care from healthcare professionals you trust.

The medical staff which cares for El Dorado and the surrounding areas is a tight-knit medical community providing patients and visitors with easy access between physician’s offices and Hospital facilities and services. Medical staff specialties include Family Practice, Internal Medicine, Cardiology, Obstetrics/Gynecology, Medical and Radiation Oncology, Neurology, Radiology, General Surgery, Orthopaedic Surgery, Plastic Surgery, Otolaryngology (ENT), Dermatology, Nephrology, Pulmonology, Emergency Medicine, Urology, Pediatrics, and Ophthalmology.

Susan B. Allen is governed by a local board of citizens, and is accredited by the Joint Commission.
