Officials from Lawrence Memorial Hospital, Eudora Family Care and Byrne’s Pharmacy held an official ribbon cutting ceremony on Monday to celebrate the opening of the new medical facility in Eudora.

“We made the decision in 2006 to invest in this property” LMH President Gene Meyer said. “We and the board think it was a tremendous decision for both LMH and, in turn, the community.”

Mayor Scott Hopson in his remarks was excited about the new facility opening.

“This project serves as a symbol to the region that Eudora is open for business and economic progress is happening in our community” Hopson said. “We look forward to more businesses locating in the area around this facility and the positive future it represents for Eudora.”

Dr. Daniel Dickerson is extremely happy with the new facility. “It’s wonderful here.

It’s definitely a change and it’s been a long process to get to this point, but the additional space and new technology are so great.  This new facility will allow us to serve the community with even better quality health care”  Dickerson said.
