Southeast Kansas’ newest ambulance district now has equipment to work with.
Mercy Hospital Ft. Scott has donated four ambulances to the district. The Bourbon County Ambulance District was formed through a partnership with the city of Ft. Scott and Bourbon County. The move came in response to the October announcement that Mercy would be closing their Ft. Scott facility.
Bourbon County commissioners say Mercy will continue to manage the district through March of next year to allow time for reimbursements to be collected to fund future operations.
