MARYSVILLE – Marysville, KS – Community Memorial Healthcare (CMH) invites you to join them to celebrate 60 years of service to the Marshall County and surrounding areas communities with an ice cream social open house on Tuesday, May 8. The public is invited to attend the come-and-go event between 4 – 6 p.m.
The ice cream social is meant to be reminiscent of a 1950s ice cream parlor, in a nod to the era of the hospital’s founding. Ice cream with all the fixings, birthday cupcakes, and punch will be served.
Tours of the main hospital building will be given every 15 minutes, and a short program will given by Curtis Hawkinson, CEO, at 4:15 p.m. and again at 5:30 p.m.
As part of the vintage parlor theme, anniversary t-shirts were designed for employees that feature a neon marquee sign indicating an estimated 635,319 “patients served” since the hospital’s opening. The graphic will also be used in the decorations.
CMH has grown from a staff of 37 in 1958 to a current staff of over 200. “Customer service is at the heart of health care at CMH,” said Hawkinson. “Our commitment is to serve the community with respect, compassion and excellence 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year. This commitment is not empty words, it is a way of life for every one of our staff as we strive to provide patient-centered care for everyone who walks in ours doors.”
