Norton County Hospital partners with Holistic Pain Management

The new in-hospital service is set to provide patients with a non-opioid option for pain treatment.

NORTON, Kan. – Norton County Hospital, a 25-bed critical-access hospital and Level IV trauma center, is proud to add Holistic Pain Management (HPM) to its list of patient services. With a focus on non-opioid chronic pain treatment, HPM is able to expand pain management at Norton County Hospital with an array of 40 new procedures not previously available (or easily accessible) in Norton and the surrounding area.

“We look forward to partnering with Holistic Pain Management to bring these services to Norton County,” said Gina Frack, Norton County Hospital CEO. “The tentative start time for these services is the end of May 2021. HPM has made clear that it prioritizes building relationships with patients first, and I think that will be very well-received in our community.”

The hospital’s foundation, the Norton Regional Health Foundation, recently purchased a new table for $9,800 that will be used for pain management services. This is more evidence of the commitment to bring these needed services to the area, Frack said.

HPM partners with hospitals looking for a pain management solution and introduces new resources into the system. This, in turn, benefits both the hospital and the surrounding communities.

"Holistic Pain Management is honored to have the opportunity to serve the Norton County community,” said Ryan Shedd, Holistic Pain Management CEO. “We are excited to join the hospital team and work together to improve function in patients with chronic pain.”
