Boy Scouts and FFA planting over 3000 trees at new hospital
Local Boy Scout troops and students from Elma High School’s FFA Club are working with Summit Pacific Medical Center to help plant over 3,000 trees at the site of the new hospital, and the public is invited to join.
Anyone who is interested in volunteering to plant trees is invited to attend Saturday, October 13th starting at 9am. All those who plan to volunteer need to bring their own work gloves and shovels. Weyerhaeuser donated 3,000 of the tree seedlings.
Summit Pacific Medical Center is slated to open February 2013. The new medical center will replace Mark Reed Hospital. Mark Reed Health Care District, currently owns and operates Mark Reed Healthcare Clinic and Elma Family Medicine. When the hospital moves from McCleary to Elma, Mark Reed Healthcare Clinic will remain open in McCleary.
Residents with questions can call Lauren Day, Community Relations for the new facility, at 360-495-3244.
