With a new chairman, two new trustees and a new legal adviser, much of Tuesdays hospital board meeting focused on planning.
Loren Korte took the helm as chairman, succeeding Patti Boyd whose term expired at the end of the year. New trustees John Brocker and Mona Hull took their seats, along with new county counselor Bob Johnson, who advises the board on legal matters.

CEO Tony Thompson highlighted priorities such as recruiting an OB/GYN physician and exploring options to collaborate with Fort Scott physicians, building a medical arts building, training staff, improving promotion of hospital services and more.
