“Neither snow nor rain nor heat nor gloom of night” may be the postman’s creed, but it certainly applies to the staff at St. Mary’s Hospital and Clinics as well.

Last month, those care providers consisted of Peg Gehring, NP, Shelli Lothspeich, Michelle Hain-Flores, nursing staff, and Kelly Williams, admissions manager.
