The Wound Care Clinic at Pinckneyville Community Hospital Receives Dual Recognition with
Clinical Distinction and Patient Satisfaction Awards
Biannual award acknowledges superior wound healing rates, excellence in patient satisfaction.
Over the last several months, the great staff of the Pinckneyville Community Hospital and the Family Medical Center have been in comprehensive training in preparation for the change in the computer system we use to care for patients, known as the Electronic Health Record (EHR). On May 1, 2023, we will be converting from our current systems to a new EHR called Meditech Expanse.
Meditech Expanse is an EHR used by hospitals of all sizes across the country and provides a complete record of a patient’s health information in one single integrated patient record. The Meditech Expanse EHR spans all health care settings—which includes all Hospital, Wellness Center and Family Medical Center services— giving providers one patient record and patients a singular patient portal for managing all of their health information.
Pinckneyville Community Hospital, through Press Ganey, conducts surveys of patients who have been admitted to the hospital to allow the patient to rate their experience and voice any compliments or suggestions. The most recent survey indicates that Pinckneyville Community Hospital’s efforts have had a positive impact on patient experience.
Randall Dauby, CEO of Pinckneyville Community Hospital, was recognized in Becker Hospital Review’s, 80 Rural Hospital CEOs to Know in 2023. Rural hospitals are critical to the success of the U.S. healthcare system to expand access to care in remote areas. CEOs at the helm of these important community institutions have many responsibilities to make sure their hospitals thrive.

Love is indeed a splendored thing, full of magnificent features that serve to promote greater mental, physical and spiritual health. In fact, you could say that loving and being loved provides the perfect potion for overall well-being and longevity.
