What are the organization's current programs, how do they measure success, and who do the programs serve?

B.E. Smith Family Center

The B.E. Smith Family Center is the home of Britain Development which provides holistic therapies and early education to children ages birth to six with a variety of special needs. It is also home to Early Learning which provides care and early education to children of hospital associates and physicians. 

Population(s) Served
Children and youth

The Lee Ann Britain Infant Development Center (Britain IDC) is a year-round program for children ages birth to six who are born with developmental disabilities. The program offers parent-involved infant and toddler classes, preschool classes with typically developing peer models, physical therapy, occupational therapy, speech therapy, pediatric sensory integration therapy, aquatic therapy, music therapy and parental support for families. Gifts to the Foundation support family scholarships for many of the 200+ children served annually at the Britain Center. These scholarships allow families to attend and receive the full scope of needed services when they otherwise could not afford to do so. Because the cost of therapies can be as much as $4,000 per child per month, these scholarships are crucial to the well-being of the children and their families.

Population(s) Served
People with disabilities
Infants and toddlers

Providing medical services to individuals without medical insurance or with difficult financial circumstances is central to SMMC’s mission as a faith-based community hospital. 
From January through December 2016, SMMC provided $41,614,063 in Charity Care to the underprivileged. These figures are based on cost, not gross charges, and do not include bad debt write-offs.  
 
Throughout 2016, SMMC's Charity Care assistance benefitted 2,176 patients (representing 8.4% of the 25,648 inpatients admitted to SMMC in 2016). These individuals in our community received medical services, some of which were life-saving, for which they could not afford, but for the Indigent Care program. SMMC is proud to be a hospital that cares for the medical needs of our community members regardless, in many instances, of the patients ability to pay for their care.

Population(s) Served
Economically disadvantaged people

Thanks to a generous gift from Dick and Barbara Shull in 2002, SMMC was the first hospital in a five-state area to begin using the da Vinci®Surgical System. The da Vinci®is used for a variety of procedures at SMMC, including prostate, kidney, gynecology and general surgery.                 
Surgeons operate the da Vinci®from a console that controls a surgical arm. The magnification of the camera is 10 times higher than what can be seen by the human eye, in high definition, and with 3-D technology. This allows extremely precise dissection and even suturing, also not possible with normal laparoscopic procedures.
SMMC now utilizes three da Vinci surgical robots, and is studying the acquisition of another unit to accommodate the volume of patients needing surgeries requiring the precision of this technology.

Population(s) Served
Adults

In 2014, through a generous gift from a longtime Foundation donor, a Medical Missions Endowment was created at Shawnee Mission Medical Center. This endowment will allow physicians, nurses and other health professionals to travel to countries around the globe to deliver medical and surgical services to people in these countries where the current medical services and/or technologies cannot meet these medical needs. Although medical missions have been conducted in past years and attended by SMMC physicians, the new endowment will allow more efficient service delivery and will enable the participating physicians and nurses to provide need health care to more people in these countries. The first medical missions under the new endowment were be conducted in Peru in September 2016: a surgical mission to Iquitos and a family practice / community medicine mission to Pucallpa. Both of these medical missions will be repeated in September 2017.
