  • Expansion of Health Services Building 2
  • Expansion of emergency services
  • Expansion of Senior Behavioral Health services

The hospital also said plans have been finalized for expanding the Dolores Kator Switzer Women’s Center.

Boyd came to MDH from the Girard Medical Center in Girard, Kansas.
