Looking ahead to the future, we know there is more we need to do to support the healthcare needs of you and your family. As such we have four important projects that will benefit patients in our community, and perhaps someone close to you.
- DEXA Scanner: Asante Ashland performs over 1,200 scans per year to assess three major health conditions – osteoporosis, obesity, and cardiovascular disease. The new state-of-the-art technology will increase our capabilities for diagnosing and treating osteoporosis, degenerative bone disease, and fracture risk.
- Emergency Care: With over 11,000 patients seen annually at the Asante Ashland Emergency Department, plans are underway to enhance our ability to better serve our patients. The Emergency Department is a valued service for those who call Ashland and Talent home, as well as visitors to our region. With shorter wait times and high patient satisfaction, our community counts on our hospital to care for their unexpected medical needs.
- Nursing Scholarships: Nurses are essential to healthcare. As our population ages, we will rely on nurses to care for more and more patients. A nursing degree is expensive and students often graduate with thousands of dollars in debt. Through the William G. & Ruth T. Evans Endowed Nursing Scholarship the foundation been alleviating the financial burden for students in our community since 2002. However, we are currently only able to assist one third of all applicants. With your help, we hope to expand our scholarship program.
- Surgical Services: Asante Ashland understands the importance of having your surgery close to home, in familiar surroundings with friends and family nearby. Our hospital offers general surgical services, along with specialized services such as orthopedic, retinal, spine, urology, GYN, and breast reconstruction. With your help we can continue to enhance our services to better serve you by purchasing new technology and tools for our surgical team.
