PATIENT SATISFACTION SURVEYS- NOW ONLINE
For over five years now, Kirby Medical Center has been sending patient satisfaction surveys to randomly selected patients. Those surveys have been administered on paper through the mail and filled out by hand.
However, in addition to the paper surveys, Kirby Medical Center began administering patient satisfaction surveys electronically via email in August. Randomly selected patients will receive a survey in either paper format or email format, but not both. Kirby Medical Center hopes that the availability of the survey in email form will add an additional convenience to patients as part of the hospital’s continued efforts to make it easier for them to submit feedback about patient experiences.
Both surveys contain the exact questions - regardless of the survey delivery method. And, as with the paper ones, the e-surveys are completely confidential.

SAGE CITY SPRINT TRIATHLON
Registration is now open for the August 13th Sage City Sprint Triathlon. Please visit www.triharderpromotions.com for details.
The Kirby Medical Center/KMC Sage City Triathlon will include a 300 meter swim, 13.5 mile bike ride, and a 3.1 mile run. This USAT certified course will start in the new Monticello city pool using a serpentine swim route. The bike route will highlight one of Monticello's prime attractions; Allerton Park. Riders will enter the park along the recently completed South entrance. The route circles the famous Sunsinger statue at the West edge of the park, and offers beautiful views of many park features. The run is a flat, fast course along a closed jogging path that is heavily shaded. The path travels over Monticello's new wooden bridge spanning the Sangamon River. The path is paved for about two miles, and hard packed gravel for one mile. The surface variation offers terrific relief for tired feet. Expect PR run times.
Come join us for the inaugural event being hosted by the team at Tri Harder Promotions.
