About Us

Welcome to Cheyenne County Hospital!

As Janell and I began our trip from Northwest Missouri to Northwest Kansas, I just couldn't help but to think about all those that had come before us. I had plenty of time to think on the 7.5 hour trek down highway 36. The hardships and the hope for a better life had to sustain them as they came from the East to populate the West.  I can't imagine all of the fabulous stories that went untold by those early settlers. 
  
I have always been interested in the West for its folklore and natural beauty.  The one think that really sticks out for me is the expansive beautiful sky.  Missouri has such hilly terrain, that you just don't see the vast beautiful landscape and sky like you do here.  The weather is amazing, (except for the hail storms) as the dry air is a much welcomed relief from the high humidity of Missouri.
 
I feel very fortunate to have this opportunity here at Cheyenne County.  Janell and I feel very blessed to be so warmly welcomed into the community.  We look forward to a very bright and productive future here in St. Francis. 
 
Thank you,
