Congratulations, MGH

Grant County is lucky to have some institutions that make our lives better just by their presence among us. Taylor University and Indiana Wesleyan University are two. Marion General Hospital is another.

Our hospital has been recognized as one of the best rural hospitals in the United States by the National Rural health Association. This is a huge honor by people who are experts in healthcare and its delivery.

Whether it’s combating the opioid abuse epidemic, helping the community fight obesity and diabetes or simply guiding a patient through the difficulty of any hospital stay, MGH does a commanding job of taking care of an entire community.

We congratulate the entire staff for a job that continues to be well done as well as President and CEO Stephanie Hilton-Siebert.

“So many departments support the patient care areas,” Hilton Siebert said during an announcement of the recognition. “For instance housekeeping makes sure (they’re) doing everything they can to help prevent infections in patients. We have everyone ... working on their initiatives around quality and we’ve seen great strides happen.”

Making the patient’s health at the center of all the MGH workforce does is important to the hospital’s ongoing success in a world of mergers and healthcare organizations in which daily life is controlled by people far removed from the communities and the patients they serve.

Our hospital stands out with its deep involvement in the Grant County community and by making that part of its mission.

MGH is Grant County’s hospital. At a time when healthcare is rapidly changing and patients are too often lost in the confusion, MGH has stayed patient focused and invested in the best technology and the best people to serve this county.

We take pride in the accomplishment of MGH being named in the top 20 rural hospitals in the country. They are our friends and neighbors. Tell an employee how much they are appreciated when you get the chance.
