Ebola Information:  

We are putting systems into place to detect patients at risk for Ebola, so that we can safely care for our community and protect our healthcare workers. We are involved in continuous monitoring and weekly meetings to evaluate our level of preparedness and response efforts.

On October 16, 2014 Thomas County and Citizens Medical Center, Inc. officials met together and listened to guidance from Kansas Hospital Association and Kansas Department of Health and Environment to receive updated information on the Ebola response. We plan to continue to monitor the Ebola situation through the use of the Kansas Health Alert Network and weekly population health calls hosted by KDHE.
