Dr. Lin is one of roughly one-thousand American board certified reproductive endocrinologist/infertility specialists in the world, making it one of the rarest board certifications. Board certification is considered by most physicians to be the final and most difficult task in being officially recognized as a true specialist in his or her chosen field.

For a physician to initially become board certified requires three years of additional training after successfully completing a basic residency, and the passing of both a written and oral examination. Dr. Lin was first board certified in 1993 in Quebec and Canada. In 1996, he received American board certification in Obstetrics and Gynecology followed by a second certification for reproductive endocrinology in 2000.

Dr. Lin provides a full range of women's health services at SCKMC including obstetrics, gynecology, women's health, infertility, high risk pregnancy, laparoscopic surgery, and more.

The Respiratory staff offer a full range of services to assist the breathing impaired, and to assist your practitioner to diagnose conditions of the respiratory system.

Diagnostic tests include nerve conduction testing (NCT), electroencephalogram (EEG), pulmonary function tests (PFT), and echocardiography services (EKG).

Respiratory therapists basic tasks are keeping airways open, inflating lungs with oxygen and expelling carbon dioxide in treating emergency, intensive care and acute care patients. Daily tasks would include basic nebulizer and oxygenation therapies.

Diabetic Survival Skills

SCKMC has formed a proactive group of diabetes care providers to educate newly diagnosed patients, or re-educate patients who have become less vigilant with their diabetic care as time has gone by. The team is headed by the hospital's Registered Dietitian, Diane Ray, and also includes members of the physical therapy and nursing departments.

A TEAM APPROACH TO DIABETIC EDUCATION
What is the best time to take blood sugars?
What should I expect my blood sugar to be?
Why is it so important to exam my feet?

It is common questions such as these that has prompted SCKMC to form a proactive group of diabetes care providers to educate newly diagnosed patients, or re-educate patients who have become less vigilant with their diabetic care as time has gone by. The team is headed by the hospital's Registered Dietitian, Diane Ray, and also includes members of the physical therapy and nursing departments.

Diabetes is a disease in which blood glucose (sugar) levels are above normal and cannot be regulated through the insulin produced by the body's pancreas. The disease affects 25.8 million people in the United States, and 8.5% of Kansas adults. The average medical expenditures among those diagnosed is 2.3 times higher than those without diabetes, totaling $174 billion in 2007.

Diabetes can contribute to serious health complications including heart disease, blindness, kidney failure, nerve damage, stroke, high blood pressure, and lower-extremity amputations. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, it is the seventh leading cause of death in the United States.

While diabetes is a disease that should be taken seriously, it is manageable with the proper support.

Nutrition
Ray focuses her time with the patients on their diets. She educates the entire patient's family on:
basic meal planning
understanding portion size
carbohydrates
the importance of eating on a regular schedule
recognizing and treating low blood sugar

Physical Therapy
Nutrition is just one piece of the patient education process. The medical center's physical therapists focus on exercise and places special emphasis on proper foot care.

The American Diabetes Association website states as many as 33% of people with diabetes will have a skin disorder, such as neuropathy, caused or affected by diabetes at some time in their lives.

Healthcare
Since diabetics typically take longer to heal, the SCKMC nursing staff takes the time to explain to the patients how to properly care for any open cuts or sores, and when to seek additional care from a medical professional.

Additional instruction includes:
taking medications and injections accurately
testing blood sugar levels and understanding the results

DIABETIC TEAM EDUCATION MUST BE ORDERED BY A DOCTOR. ANYONE INTERESTED IN LEARNING MORE ABOUT THIS PROGRAM SHOULD CONTACT THEIR PRIMARY CARE PHYSICIAN AND REQUEST A REFERRAL TO SCKMC FOR NUTRITIONAL COUNSELING AND PHYSICAL THERAPY FOR DIABETICS.
What our patients are saying about this service:
"Wonderful, I learned a lot with it, the things I did not know, understand, or do. An excellent program." -R.F.

"Very informative, knowledgable, and helpful. Plenty of materials." - J.B.

"Everyone in this hospital has helped me through this diabetes thing, from the lady delivering the information and teaching me about it, to all the nurses showing me how to and when to. Other than the shock of it, you all have got me on the road to recovery. God Bless you, you have been a solid rock for me and my family. We love you, but God loves you more. That's why you are here doing God's work. Thanks." - S.B.

Depending on the patient's needs, both group education and individual counseling is available highlighting the importance of diet, regular exercise, and living a healthy lifestyle. Counseling is available by appointment, and is covered by many insurance companies with a physician's referral.

Hospitality Services

At the heart of our facility is the hard working men and women who provide the basic essentials for an effective hospital, safety and cleanliness. While they may not be as visible as some of the other departments, their contributions to patient care are equally important.

HOUSEKEEPING
Through a partnership with Hospital Housekeeping Services, our Housekeeping Department strives to make your visit a safe and pleasant one. We work hard making sure patients and employees have a safe, clean and healthy environment. We make sure germs are not being passed from patient to visitor or from visitor to patient.

South Central Kansas Medical Center's Housekeeping Department consists of a dedicated and conscientious team responsible for all areas of the hospital and Outpatient Services Building.

The hospital housekeeping department has as its basic function of maintaining the highest order of aseptic cleanliness throughout the entire facility. We are staffed seven days a week. Hours range from 6:30 a.m. to 11:30 p.m.

LAUNDRY
Through a partnership with Hospital Housekeeping Services, the Laundry Department is a vital behind the scenes department making certain linens are stain free and germ free for our patients. South Central Kansas Medical Center takes pride in the fact that they provide an on-site laundry service for its patients and residents.

At a time where many small hospitals have moved towards outside vendors to provide laundry service, at South Central Kansas Medical Center this service is seen as a continuation of the care that makes your stay special. The laundry department washes linen for all departments in the Hospital, affiliated Doctor's office's of SCKMC, and the Arkansas City EMS.

The Laundry department washes and processes an average of 250,000 pounds of linen a year.

NUTRITIONAL SERVICES
Perhaps one of the biggest misconceptions of hospital care is that the food has to taste bad. Through a partnership with Hospital Housekeeping Services, our dietary staff strives to provide both variety and quality with their meals. Patients select meals from a menu of options and orders are taken in person by the dietary hostess. Meals are tailored to maintain our patient's individual restrictions, as determined by our licensed dietitian. In addition to providing meals for our patients, our dietary also supplies meals for our physicians, staff, visitors, and caters for special occasions. In total the department provides more than 88,000 meals each year.

MAINTENANCE
The Maintenance Department does much more than perform routine "handy-man" work throughout the facility. This team is responsible for all utilities within the hospital, Outpatient Services Building, South Central Kansas Clinic, and the upkeep of the grounds. They are knowledgeable in plumbing, electrical work, mechanical repair, heating /cooling, equipment troubleshooting, and more.
Our dining room, the Prairie Breeze Cafe, is open to the public for breakfast and lunch. A variety of meal options are available. The weekday lunch menu features a daily "Chef Special" very reasonably priced, and prepared by our onsite Chef. Public hours are 7:00a.m. - 8:30 a.m., and 11:00 a.m. - 12:30 p.m. "Grab-and-Go" salads, sandwiches, and snacks are available for purchase throughout the day.
