Yesterday the Associated Press released an article to multiple State-wide sources stating that Oswego Community Hospital announced its closing. In the article it incorrectly named Herington Community Hospital as one of two other hospitals associated with the group EmpowerHMS. I have contacted several news venues out of Topeka and that information has been corrected but I am now informed this error was made by the Associated Press and correcting it with all the venues involved is not possible. The hospital that should have been named is Hillsboro Community Hospital, Hillsboro, Kansas. Herington’s hospital is not privately owned or operated by any outside source.
I hope this clears up any concerns or confusion by members of our community. Thank you for your on-going support.
