“He gets the picture to what’s needed in healthcare in this district here in Junction City and Geary Community Hospital, and for that matter in the state of Kansas,” said Geary Community Hospital CEO Dr. Joseph Stratton. “He knows that a healthy hospital and a strong hospital and schools and roads and bridges make a good community and a possitive community. He understands those things and he gets behind us and supports us in many way.”
