Ellinwood hospital CEO Kile Magner said, “We appreciate the efforts that Senator Marshall took on our behalf to help with this process. The positive impact the new hospital and clinic will have on the Ellinwood community and surrounding area for generations to come is undeniable and Senator Marshall played a large role in helping us to accomplish this.”
