What our nurses are saying:

“One of the things that I love about working at KSB is the close-knit feel of staff. The doctors also treat us as partners and friends, which is very different than what I experienced in a larger hospital. We spend lots of time at work and the people there become a second family.”

“At KSB I am able to use my passion for quality care and personal connection in my nursing. The more intimate care and connections I am able to make with patients at a smaller hospital are much more satisfying because the nurse-patient ratio affords me the extra time to connect on a deeper level. I feel I am truly making a difference.”

“My work experience at KSB Hospital has always been a positive one. The people that work at KSB make it a family-friendly place to work, and the way the staff all work together make KSB a good team to be a part of.”
