Keyes Medical Clinic Moves Into New Home
The Keyes, Okla. , Medical Clinic held an open house June 23 at their new location. The evening included a short program, hamburger and hotdog feed, entertainment and door prizes.
The Keyes Medical Clinic is a satellite office for Morton County Health System. When it opened in 1998, the clinic was housed in the old mobile home that had previously served as the Rolla Medical Center 's temporary home. At that time Lori Harrirnan was in charge of the Keyes office. She is now manager of all the clinics for MCHS. She is also a registered nurse.
The Clinic's new home is on Keyes' Main Street and used to be the old Mobrey Drug Store. The City of Keyes received a grant through the State of Oklahoma for renovations.
Local EMS personnel and volunteers started the upgrading project about a year ago. EMS personnel included J.C. and Nancy Moser, Sara Moser, Brent and Lynn Jones, Willie and Teresa Shelly, Glen Copeland, Dustin and Terri Thurman, Jay Sparks and Dickey Moore. Volunteers included Lester Perky, Mitchell Perky, Howard Balenseifen, Joyce Balendseifen and scouts, Zack Taylor, Nathan Conner, Ray Foust, Toby Foust, Laura Ingram, Shannon Jones,
Taylor Jones, Sierra Thurman and Quint Harris. It opened for business May 6 of this year.
Laura Ingram is the receptionist for the office which is open 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Monday through Thursday and from 8 a.m. until noon on Friday.
Leonard Hernandez, CEO of Morton County Health System, spoke at the program along with Dr. Manual Caga-anan and Board Member John Milburn. While everyone enjoyed refreshments and visiting, Fusion Entertainment provided music. Streets were even blocked off for anyone wishing to do a little dancing.
