Because your time is valuable we want to ensure your admission to Valley County Health System is comprehensive and prompt. Any information provided before your admission helps in the overall process. Many of these items we request you bring prior to admission are required by government agencies. Whether you will be an inpatient (staying overnight) or an outpatient (going home the same day as services are provided) you will need to complete the admission process and provide appropriate documentation.
Below is a list of required items for admission to the hospital:

Registration office hours are Monday through Friday 7 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. and Saturday from 8 a.m. to 12 pm. Admissions after hours are done by acute care staff. If you have any questions, or for more information please call 308.728.4200.
Gold Star Award
Cheryl Sinkler - Laundry/Housekeeping
Cheryl Sinkler has worked for VCHS for almost 21 years. During this time, she has been part of our laundry department, as well as helped with housekeeping at our Burwell Clinic. You know that the job will be done on time, and done right, when Cheryl is working. She takes pride in what she does and does so in a caring and professional manner. Cheryl is one of those people you meet in the hall and know she will say hello to you by name.
Cheryl exceeds expectations as she keeps laundry services going for both the hospital and Valley View Living Center, as well as ensures the Burwell Clinic is cleaned with the utmost care.
Starting her laundry shift at 5:00 a.m., Cheryl regularly returns to clean the Burwell Clinic at 6:00 p.m. and on Saturdays.
We sometimes take for granted the little things, such as clean linens, towels, etc. Hospital patients, however, appreciate clean bedding, towels, etc., and knowing Cheryl is on the job, means that this small comfort of home is always taken care of in the most professional manner.
Cheryl is well respected by her fellow employees and is a role model in her hard working and positive attitude and the way she carries out her work at all times.
DEDICATED, PROFESSIONAL, KIND, and HARD WORKING are just a few words to describe what a special lady Cheryl is and how deserving she is of being recognized as a Gold Star!
Congratulations, Cheryl! You are a Gold Star!
