In an effort to serve our patients more efficiently, access to the Emergency Department is shared with the Outpatient Clinic entrance on the west side of the hospital. This entrance is available to the public twenty-four hours a day. The Emergency Bay is only accessible to authorized vehicles. If arriving by private vehicle, patients should call 785-632-2144 so nursing staff may anticipate arrival and offer any assistance required.
Implementation of the entrance change prompted the need for new signage. Graciously, Ray Dean Knox offered his metal fabricating expertise. He combined the Outpatient Clinic and Emergency Entrance in a substantial sign that is easily read day or night. Dustin Knox, Ray Dean’s son assisted in the metal working. Hospital Employee Justin Urban applied the reflective vinyl and completed the painting.
Ray Dean Knox has more than a charitable connection to the hospital. His daughters, Shandi Slater and Shanna Joy serve Clay County Medical Center as Registered Nurses and his granddaughter Madison Knox is a Certified Nursing Assistant.
