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.

Did you know:
Within our cancer center we house a Varian TrueBeam Linear Accelerator. This is excellent news for Dr. Harrison and patients. The Varian TrueBeam Linear accelerator is an impressive resource for patients needing radiation as part of their cancer treatment. It is one of the most advanced cancer treatment systems to pinpoint accuracy to radiate tumors while minimizing exposure to surrounding healthy tissues.
This will allow Dr. Harrison and his staff to treat cancer more precisely anywhere in the body, including lung, breast, prostate, spine, bone, and brain.

Ears are self-cleaning. If you leave your ears alone, they will leave you alone.

Cleaning your ear may feel good because there are a lot of nerve endings in the ear. While you might feel good digging away, the habit can dry your ear out and cause minor trauma like abrasions.

When you shove a Q-tip in there, you can’t actually remove the wax. You’re actually just pushing the wax deeper in, where it can become impacted, painful, or lead to an ear infection.

Hearing loss can sometimes show up as feeling like your ear is blocked.

If you’re experiencing this, please consult our Audiologist, Carly Sturm at 316.684.2838.

Nearly 100 million Americans experience chronic pain. That number is more than those who have diabetes, heart disease and cancer combined.

Pain Awareness Month was established to help the invisible illness of pain receive national recognition. This also reminds everyone how this issue affects individuals, families, communities and the country as a whole. We encourage you to advocate for those in pain and join in spreading awareness and information about pain this month.

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.
