As the CEO and Administrator for Greenwood County Hospital, I am saddened by the stories I read of struggling Kansas hospitals and I cringe because their stories reflect the struggles our own hospital has had to deal with in the not so distant past.
We are thankful for our patients and our community for the continued support that they have shown Greenwood County Hospital.
