Legislature recognizes Ketchikan Medical Center

Hospital

PeaceHealth Ketchikan Medical Center received a surprise last week when visiting State Senator Lesil McGuire presented hospital officials with a citation on behalf of the Alaska State Legislature.

McGuire, who represents Anchorage, sponsored the citation to commemorate the opening of the Ketchikan Medical Center’s new chemotherapy infusion suite.

According to PeaceHealth, McGuire said she wanted to offer the recognition after she heard of the new infusion therapy suite, and how it was funded through a partnership between individuals, businesses and private foundations.
