Norton County Hospital to host community meeting

April 12, 2019

NORTON, Kan. – Norton County Hospital would like to invite anyone interested in learning about our local health care system to a community meeting on Wednesday, April 24th. The meeting will be hosted from 5:30-6:30 p.m. in the basement of Prairie Land Electric Cooperative, 14935 U.S. Highway 36, Norton.

The event is the start of regular community-wide meetings being hosted by the hospital to educate on the current status of local health care provided at the hospital and its clinic, Norton Medical Clinic, as well as allow administration and board members to answer questions posed by the public. At this first meeting, Gina Frack, Norton County Hospital CEO, plans to talk about the Norton County Hospital Strategic and Implementation Plan for 2018-2020. It was developed throughout 2018 from data driven by the 2018 Community Health Needs Assessment for Norton County and subsequent meetings with members of the community and hospital staff.

Wichita State University was involved in collecting data and facilitating strategic and implementation plan development. Funding for this process was made possible by Norton County Hospital and the Norton Regional Health Foundation. The Norton County Health Department also collaborated on this project.

If you have questions about the event on April 24th, please call Norton County Hospital at 785-877-3351 and ask for Katelin Koch. You may RSVP for this event by contacting Katelin as well. A RSVP is not required but is appreciated by April 22nd to plan accordingly for the event.
