Vicki and Ron Gideon are sharing a secret.

Vicki and Ron have lived in the Oswego area for fifty years.

"We think this is one of Oswego's best kept secrets. We have been here to visit people on one side of the facility but never on the other side of the facility.  So! When we found out it existed of course this is where we wanted to come."

Vicki and Ron wanted a rehab program that would allow them to return home. After being dismissed for a regional facility they found they were not prepared for going home.

"This was more than you could expect" Vicki shared.  "We loved how we were able to get in the program. Monday morning Ronnie was at the Hospital by noon we had everything and came to the hospital on Tuesday."

Ronnie explained how important it was for them to be in rehab, "When we came here she could not raise her legs. Now she can raise both. The rehab people here are phenomenal. The staff has been 150% above what you would expect. This is in small town USA. This is Oswego's best kept secret."

When Vicki reflected about heading home she stated, "We are ready. They have worked with me and Ronnie and we are ready. But we are coming back to use some outpatient services. We are not done yet."

Many people assume that Oswego Community Hospital is only a critical access facility. Or that it only provides acute level care. As a provider in rural southeast Kansas the hospital serves in many additional roles and services. 
Acute Care, Dietary, Emergency, Forensic Services, Full-Service Laboratory, Occupational Health, Outpatient Department, Radiology, Rehabilitation Therapy, Respite Care, Social Services, Swing Bed / Rehab & Recovery, and Wound Clinic only part of the services available through the hospital and the community clinics it operates.

The Rehab and Recovery Program has several therapy services it can pull from. However at the heart of the program are two individuals.  Alex Kuhlman, DPT the Director of Rehabilitation and Occupational Health, and working very close with Alex is Tamie Norris the Occupational Therapist.

Oswego is a 12 bed critical access hospital. This allows for a more concentrated effort as therapist can be very focused on each individual's plan of care.

Alex stated, “As a Physical Therapist, I provide skilled services to all ages in order to restore function, improve mobility, and relieve pain for all types of injuries, disorders, disease, and general aches and pains. I invite patients to contact me to discuss how Physical Therapy might improve their lives and help them stay active in the years to come.

In my role as Director of Occupational Health, I invite business owners and school districts, to contact me to discuss occupational health services available to our surrounding communities. I encourage them to contact me by calling Oswego Community Hospital at (620) 795-2921; or”
