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.
