Description

Scotland Health Care System in Laurinburg, North Carolina is proud to be the community's health care system. We are a community owned and controlled not-for-profit organization that includes Scotland Memorial Hospital, Scotland Physicians Network with nine medical practices, Scotland Regional Hospice (formerly Hospice of Scotland County), Scotland Family Counseling Center, and Scotland Memorial Foundation.

Here at Scotland Health Care System, we understand that healthcare is evolving. Advances in medicine and strides in technology are providing local communities access to better healthcare. It is our desire to provide patients the best care possible. Our staff will be here to help patients and their loved ones when the need arises.

Our Beliefs About Our Future:

  • To successfully accomplish our Mission and Vision our transformation must include creative and innovative changes in what we do and how we do it.
  • We must change from a hospital and provider-centric model to a patient-centered, ambulatory model.
  • There will be a continued focus on moving the industry to an increasingly ambulatory based delivery model focused on the health of the individual patient and the overall health of the population we serve.
  • New payment models will incent us to better coordinate our patient’s care along the continuum of services. This includes both how our patients are treated and how their treatment information flows.
  • New partners, arrangements, and competitors will emerge for us as a result of the new treatment and payment models. We will be strategically advantaged by coordinating access to a comprehensive continuum of care.
  • Patients and their families will behave more like Consumers, expecting more Value, Convenience, and Access, in addition to caring and compassionate Service.
  • Limited opportunities to pursue Smart Growth will necessitate us focusing our strategic efforts and resource allocation decisions.

Our Mission, Vision, and Values Statement
Below are our recently adopted new Mission, Vision and Value Statements our Board approved last May based on their beliefs about our future.

Mission: 
The Mission of Scotland Health Care System is to work with our health care partners to create and operate a patient centered, integrated system to provide Safe, High Quality, Compassionate, and Sustainable health care to the people we serve.

Vision:

This value will be demonstrated through the highest level of Quality and Service, along with the Safest environment. We will lead efforts to improve the health and well-being of the citizens in our region.

Values: 
We accept and are proud of our role as the safety net provider of essential services for our region.

  • As a community-owned health care system, we believe in transparency and accountability to our community for the decisions we make. These decisions will be made collaboratively and with the utmost integrity.
  • Our associates, physicians, other providers, and volunteers are our most important assets. We treat each other, along with our patients and families, with care, compassion, dignity and respect at all times.
  • We carry out all these principles in a financially prudent and sustainable manner to ensure we stay focused on our Mission.

 

Our Past, Our Present and Our Future

Our History 
Scotland Memorial Hospital started in 1946 in the medical facilities of the deactivated Laurinburg/Maxton Air Base. In 1951, the hospital moved to McLean Street as a 100-bed facility and with additions in 1956 and 1965, increased the number of its acute care beds to 124. In 1983, the hospital opened the current facility on Lauchwood Drive. We are currently licensed for 104 acute care beds.

Scotland Health Care System Today 
Scotland Health Care System continues to concentrate on what the community wants: high-quality services focused on individual patient needs. We are this area's largest private employer, with a staff of over 1,000 full-time and part-time associates. Over 100 physicians and advanced clinical practitioners are on our staff.

Our Future 
Continuing to recruit and retain quality professionals and continuing our evolution into an integrated health care system are our most exciting strategies. We remain confident that we will continue to thrive by focusing on providing high-quality care and service as efficiently as possible. Rest assured, when you need medical care, from our Emergency Center to our inpatient care, Scotland Health Care System is here to provide you and your family with excellent and safe health care close to home.
