CCMC Nominated for Governor's Award of Excellence

Clay County Medical Center has been nominated for the 2003 Kansas Business Appreciation Awards for the North Central Region. Each year, economic development representatives and other organizations have an opportunity to nominate deserving businesses that give back to the local and state economy.

During the month of June, the Kansas Department of Commerce & Housing will host six regional ceremonies throughout the state to recognize the regional winners in four categories: distribution, manufacturing, retail, and service. Clay County Medical Center has been nominated for its contribution in the service category.

In addition to the regional category winners, one business from each region will be selected as a finalist for the Governor's Award of Excellence. This is the highest honor presented to a business by the State of Kansas. Only one business will receive this award. Clay County Medical Center will find out if it is a finalist on June 11th.

Some of Clay County Medical Center's contributions to the economy over the last decade include a 91% expansion in the employee base and an 86% expansion in the number of square feet. Since 1993, Clay County Medical Center has added 110 employees to the payroll and expanded its facilities by just over 30,000 square feet.
