Haxtun Health is always looking for ways to make healthcare better for you and for everyone in our community.

The number one question always remains, “What do you need and want from your healthcare partner?” As healthcare continually evolves, so does the needs of our community. Our responses and solutions to this evolution should always lead back to the best quality of care, delivered in a compassionate and caring way. Patient care has always been our top priority here at Haxtun Health and we determine our level of success based on your experience with us. You deserve the best, and we are striving to be the best healthcare partner you can have.

For us to become even better, we recently received a grant from the Centers for Optimizing Rural Health (CORH). CORH works with rural facilities and their communities to improve the quality of care and address the challenges unique to small hospitals. The CORH team conducted a site visit to Haxtun and met with the Board, Providers, Leadership Team, and Community members to understand our community and how they can help us improve what we do for the community. The Haxtun Health Team looks forward to this 4-year engagement that includes access to the CORH knowledge center, and peer mentoring – all at no cost to Haxtun thanks to the awarded grant. Think of this as ‘polishing the diamond’ or taking us from ‘Good’ to ‘Great’.

Progress continues on the most exciting thing in town – our Main Street Clinic. This is a 3-phase project. Phase 1 was to purchase property, ask our community what they wanted, design and prepare for construction. Phase 2 was to install underground utilities, pour concrete, and erect the steel structure. With Phase 2 complete, we have now begun the 3rd and final phase. Phase 3 will involve external walls going up, a roof, and then the interior finish and fit up. Expect this 10,000 sq. ft. Clinic to open sometime in 2023 and be the Best Clinic in Haxtun. This new building will house a 5,000 sq. ft. Clinic, a large Physical Therapy and Wellness space, and a Retail Pharmacy – all on Main Street. Stay tuned…
