Looking to the future began with a review of the last five years for Warner Hospital and Health Services leadership recently as the Board begins a detailed look at what is ahead for the city-owned hospital.
CEO Paul Skowron says in the last five years, the hospital underwent a name change that he says was a springboard for a new marketing campaign to change their image in the community and central Illinois.
In the last five years, the medical center has seen an expansion of services. Once the name change took effect, Skowron indicates they needed to improve the physical appearance of their facility and so they took to making several enhancements to fall in line with their new mission.
According to Skowron, the 3D mammography was one of the first improvements to services at the hospital. He is thankful for the Warner Hospital Foundation to help raise funds to help in expanding services that also included upgrades in radiology and new bone scan equipment.
The walk-in clinic has been available to the community for two years now and Skowron feels that addition of service has been the most successful. He indicates the success is leading the hospital board to consider expanding the service hours into the evening.
