Records Integrity Supervisor

LMH Health

Introduction:

At LMH Health, formerly Lawrence Memorial Hospital, our purpose is to be a partner for lifelong health.

LMH Health has a rich history. Founded in 1921, LMH is a 174-bed hospital located in Lawrence, Kansas. Through the years, hospital additions have been built and health care services have expanded—a trend that continues today.

LMH Health continues to be a community-owned, not-for-profit hospital that serves the health care needs of the community regardless of an individual’s ability to pay. LMH receives no tax support from the city of Lawrence or Douglas County. Dedicated to improving the health of the community, LMH invests all excess revenues in services, equipment and facilities which further that mission.

LMH Health is led by a nine-member Board of Trustees. Appointed by the mayor and confirmed by the Lawrence City Commission, trustees may serve four-year terms. They volunteer their time and expertise to improving our community hospital. Regularly scheduled meetings are held on the third Wednesday of the month at 8:30 a.m. at the hospital. Meetings are open to the public. Please note: the Board does not meet in July.

LMH Health provides care that is sensitive to cultural, racial, religious and other differences and does not discriminate on the basis of race, religion, age, ethnicity, culture, language, socio-economic status, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity or expression, national origin, physical or mental disability, or source of payment, nor in relation to employment practices.

The hospital is accredited by The Joint Commission. In addition, hospital services are surveyed by a variety of other accrediting agencies.
