Health care in Bourbon County has changed in the last few years since Mercy Hospital closed in Fort Scott in 2018.
Mercy Home Health and Hospice transitioned to Integrity Home Care + Hospice on March 1, 2019, in Fort Scott.
On Feb. 26, the Integrity staff moved their office to 1711 S. National, Suite A, which is directly behind Domino’s Pizza.
Previously, they were located at 901 S. Horton.
“This is better space,” Becky Davied, administrator, said. “There were two levels there, this makes for a better working environment.”
The space is newly renovated by building owners Jamie and Jeff Armstrong.
“Jamie and Jeff have been very accommodating,” Davied said.
