If you do not have a Vial of Life Kit and are interested in obtaining one, please contact Kirby Medical Center at (217) 762-2115.

 

FREE BLOOD PRESSURE SCREENING

The Kirby Auxiliary hosts a FREE Blood Pressure screening every Tuesday in the Promenade at Kirby Medical Center from 9am until 11am.  

It's fast, easy and the best part...it is FREE.  While you are here, why not stop by the Gift Shop where you'll always find new and exciting things in store. 

Please Note:  Blood Pressure Screenings will not be held on December 26, 2017.  Thank you!

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.

KMC Sage City Triathlon

Start Time 7:30am

Monticello Aquatic Center

601 W. Railroad

Monticello, Il. 61856

The BIG NEWS for 2017 is the addition of the Mini distance triathlon.

Sage City Mini Triathlon

Consists of a 100 meter outdoor pool swim, a 5 mile bike and a 1 mile run on the shaded path.

This is the perfect distance for youths and for  anyone wanting to Try a Tri. The On Line registration link is below.

The Kirby Medical Center/KMC Sage City Triathlon will include a 300 meter outdoor pool 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 and travels over Monticello’s new wooden bridge spanning the Sangamon River. The run is paved for approximately two miles and is hard packed gravel for one mile. The surface variation offers terrific relief for tired feet. Expect PR run times.
