Coffeyville Regional Medical Centers Basement Bunch Walking Club awards top Walkers for 2017

This is a free health incentive program that anyone can enjoy. 122 walkers have joined the CRMC Basement Bunch Walking Club.  The CRMC walking track is the perfect place for a safe, healthy walk, anytime….no matter what the weather.

Inside CRMC, you can walk in a climate-controlled environment on a padded walking track with proper lighting. The Walking Track is located in the basement by the Rehabilitation Services. Being a part of the CRMC Walkers Club comes with valuable advantages from Coffeyville Regional Medical Center. It’s also a great way to meet new people.

At the end of the year, we calculated miles, frequency and points for each of the 122 walkers that are in the program and we awarded three winners. 1st place – Tony Bourgeois – 872.55 miles, 2nd place- Kristy Jacobs – 769.60 miles and 3rd place – Melissa Wilmoth- 557.78 Miles. Each winner won a gift card to Shoe Sensation in Coffeyville.

“I was just thinking the other day that CRMC should give gift cards to a shoe store in town for a prize for the walking club. I was so shocked that I won a gift card and that they read my mind on getting new shoes! I walked so much that the treads were wearing off my shoes. We have met some pretty fantastic people on this track and I love walking here at CRMC,” said Kristi Jacobs.

Every month winners are posted on the CRMC Basement Bunch Walking Hall of Fame. All the winners are calculated by miles, frequency and points. Next time you are on the track, please take a look at the winners – January – Kristi Jacobs, February – Melissa Wilmoth, March- Linda Walls and April- Edna Mae Chittum.

Coffeyville Regional Medical Centers Marketing Team Receives Three Awards for Excellence in Advertising

The Marketing Department at Coffeyville Regional Medical Center has recently been recognized for excellence in advertising by the Marketing Healthcare Today Magazine and Creative Images, Inc. and the Kansas Association of Health Care Communicators (KAHCC).

CRMC has an award-winning website! The Aster Awards, one of the largest, most respected national competitions of its kind, is hosted by Marketing Healthcare Today Magazine and Creative Images, Inc. This elite program has recognized outstanding healthcare professionals for excellence in their advertising/marketing efforts for over 17 years.

The 2018 Aster Awards received thousands of entries from across the United States as well as several foreign countries. All entries are reviewed by a panel of industry experts and are scored on multiple criteria with a possibility of 100 percent. Participant’s entries compete against similar-sized organizations in their specific groups and categories.

Awards were issued for entries that received top marks from judges placing them in the top 16% of the nation for advertising excellence. Judging criteria included creativity, layout and design, functionality, message effectiveness, production quality and overall appeal.

CRMC was awarded the “Silver Award” – scoring in the top 12% in the nation. “This is a great honor for our team”, said Melissa Summer, Director of Communication and Government Relations. “Our goal with our new website was for it to be user-friendly, include the information people are looking for, include great health information, and showcase our services and people.”

The “Emerald” is the highest award given by KAHCC. The team also received a “Merit Award” for the hospitals Health Partners magazine. Judge comments on the magazine include: “it’s very impressive this magazine is produced in-house – very personal, professional, and unique”.

“Creating powerful and effective marketing is a passion. And what makes it so great for us is that we get to tell the story of our hospital and the people that make it so wonderful”, Summer said. “Our hospital and services are second to none. My family and I wouldn’t go anywhere else but here for our healthcare. What a talented group of professionals.”

Coffeyville Regional Medical Center plans to Summer Sessions of Safesitter, babysitting course

Coffeyville Regional Medical Center is offering Safesitter classes throughout the summer on Saturdays. The Summer sessions will be held, May 26th, June 9th, July 21st and August 18th. The first session will be held on Saturday, May 26th, 2018 from 9:30am until 4:30pm, located in the 2nd Floor Administration Boardroom at CRMC.  If you are interested in the May session, please register by Wednesday, May 23rd and pay at time of registration. Please bring a sack lunch as the class will go into the lunch hour. The cost of the program is $35, and registration is required.  Limited space available, if you would like to get your child registered please call 620-252-2201 or email Ashley Tatman at [email protected].  If you cannot make the May session but would like to attend the June session please register by Wednesday, June 6th and for the July session please register by Wednesday, July 18thand for the August session, please register by Wednesday, August 15th.

The Safe Sitter program is a medically accurate instructional program which includes basic information on babysitting, first aid instruction, behavior management, and child development facts for children ages infant to school age.  The class is intended for both boys and girls 11 to 13 years old who are interested in babysitting.  The curriculum is extremely active and hands-on and features babysitting scenarios as a way for the participants to learn how to react to problems they may encounter while sitting with a child.

A large segment of the program concentrates on Infant and Child CPR and Choking Rescue.  Round table discussions are held to cover four aspects of babysitting:  Nap/Night time; Eating; Activities and Toileting. They receive information on child development and age appropriate activities.

Another large component of the program is centered on safety for the sitter.  Sitters are trained to check all references before accepting a job to protect them from going to a strange home.  They are taught to ask the important information they need when babysitting at someone else’s home in case of the need to contact either EMS, an available adult to help, or how to contact the parents if needed. They learn safety and security precautions, such as what to do if a stranger comes to the door and when and how to call for help.

The goal of Safe Sitter is to prepare young adolescents for the responsibilities of nurturing and protecting children, and to reduce the number of accidental and preventable deaths among children being cared for by babysitters.
