National Public Radio Journalist Sarah Jane Tribble has been writing stories of the Mercy Hospital-Fort Scott’s closing in December 2018.
To her NPR Facebook group, she shared this link on the Concordia, KS hospital’s story in dealing with their old hospital.
“Building a new hospital to replace an old one? It’s happening in Kansas,” Tribble wrote in the introduction to the featured link. “The original hospital opened 1951 with 150 beds. The new hospital will be a single story with 14 beds.”
