On Thursday, September 15th, Cass Health welcomed Governor Kim Reynolds for a tour of the newly renovated facility and an opportunity to discuss rural health legislative priorities.

“We were honored to host Governor Reynolds, and we were thankful to have some of her time to be able to share the good news at Cass Health,” said CEO Brett Altman.

During her tour of the facility, the governor was able to see the Tyler Family Cancer Center where she was greeted by Jim Tyler and daughter Jayne. Additionally, the governor toured the new Atlantic Medical Center and  talked with several staff members.

“The governor made time for us to share our story – all the things going right both within our walls and at a legislative level – that have put us in a position to be one of the best rural hospitals in the country. It was a very productive, positive conversation, and I know that we clearly made an impression that Cass Health is both a center of excellence and a vital part of west central and southwest Iowa’s healthcare infrastructure,” said Altman.

Of note, the Cass Health administrative team talked with Governor Reynolds about workforce development needs, labor expenses, tort reform, EMS, and access to childcare.
