As you now know, Memorial Hospital has been named the Outstanding Rural Health Organization of the Nation for the year 2023 by the National Rural Health Association and we at Hancock County Economic Development Corporation could not be more proud. This award affirms what many in this community have known, that Memorial Hospitals devotion to the region is steadfast and tenacious.
From the perspective of economic development, having such an extraordinary medical organization in the area is nothing short of vital for our community. Memorial Hospital provides job opportunities for locals, offers an amazing recruiting tool to bring in new citizens, and encourages their staff to be involved in events and organizations throughout the county.
For more than 70 years Memorial Hospital has not only been providing high-quality healthcare services to our residents but the organization is also one of the area's largest employers and this award reflects the extraordinary efforts of the medical providers, nurses, and support staff at Memorial who are dedicated to offering exemplary care not just in Carthage, but in each of the clinics in and around Hancock County.
Please take a moment to join me in recognizing Memorial Hospital and to show our appreciation to our healthcare professionals for their hard work and dedication.
