Watertown Regional Medical Center is Making Communities Healthier
June 27, 2017
Watertown Regional Medical Center’s (WRMC) goal is to deliver the highest quality healthcare available to the communities they serve as they work to advance their mission of Making Communities Healthier. With the help of dedicated physicians, employees, volunteers and board members, WRMC is able to continuously improve care and make sure patients’ experience at WRMC the best it can be.
Throughout 2016, WRMC explored numerous ways to advance their mission and refine focus on creating places where people choose to come for healthcare, physicians want to practice and employees want to work. Their legacy of caring for communities they serve is stronger than ever.
For example, in 2016, WRMC invited some of the nation’s top physicians into our community, including OB/GYN Dr. Siddiqui, Family Medicine physician Dr. Box and Retina Specialist Dr. Met. For the entire year, 13 new providers were added in a number of service lines.
And while delivering high quality patient care close to home is the one of their most important contributions, there are many other ways WRMC is making a positive impact:
In creating excellent workplaces for 766 employees, they made $5,332,885 in capital improvements in 2016, including upgrades and technology in surgery, heart and vascular and radiology departments. They provided nearly $260,000 in professional development and growth opportunities. And they managed and distributed an annual payroll of $52,104,985.
WRMC is also proud to take a leadership role in the communities they serve and are committed to delivering needed healthcare to everyone, regardless of their ability to pay. In fact, in 2016 they donated more than $3 million in healthcare services to those in need. They also supported dozens of community programs and events, including Watertown Family Center, Rainbow Hospice, Dodge/Jefferson Healthy Community Partnership and the Watertown Healthcare Coalition.
These are just a few of the ways WRMC is Making Communities Healthier, and will continue looking for additional ways to advance this important mission.
