MARYSVILLE – Community Memorial Healthcare (CMH) Foundation was honored to receive a generous gift of $2,000 to assist with COVID-19 expenses from the Ag Partners Cooperative, Inc. Fund at Kansas Rural Communities Foundation.

I think all the staff at CMH have been overwhelmed by the support received from the communities we serve. This has been a difficult and trying time for them and our patients as everyone had to adapt quickly to the ever-changing environment.
