“HMH is an integral part of our community. It is important to have health care for our citizens and those of surrounding areas. HMH has answered the call providing competent and compassionate care for those in our area. We have remodeled, brought in extra physicians, upgraded our labs, secured a CAT Scan machine and have a helipad for those requiring more acute attention. It has been my pleasure to serve on this board.”
