Several partners and more than 500 supporters attended the dedication and grand opening of the Community Memorial Healthcare Hospital in Marysville, Kan.  Sultry conditions throughout the afternoon didn’t stop the community from celebrating its new state-of-the-art facility. 

The $17.3 million project will help to better serve the needs of its patients. A new 50,000 square-foot facility was constructed that houses 25 patient rooms that allow more private, accessible rooms for patients.

Services offered by the hospital include  24 hour emergency care, cardiopulmonary services, chemotherapy, diabetes education, dietary services, general surgery, home health, physical therapy,  obstetrics, radiology and other services.

Supporters of the new Community Memorial Healthcare Hospital turned out in record numbers to take guided tours of the new hospital following the dedication ceremony.  Community Memorial Healthcare Photo.

More than 200 individuals are employed by the hospital, which is one of Marysville’s top employers.  Active medical staff at the hospital includes seven physicians, one surgeon and six nurse practitioners.

Stillwater National Bank in Oklahoma City, Okla., financed the new hospital and USDA Rural Development provided a Community Facilities Loan Guarantee.

USDA Rural Development’s Community Programs provide loans, grants and loan guarantees for community facilities projects. Community facilities projects develop essential community facilities for public use in rural areas and may include hospitals, fire protection, safety, as well as many other community-based initiatives.
