Casner stated: “We’re thankful Senator Manar took the time to visit Pana Community Hospital and appreciate his support of rural health care providers. It is important to be able to sit down with our elected officials to voice concerns and struggles we face in providing quality health care in a rural setting. It was also exciting to share plans for our building project and show the Senator our plans for the future."
