New Podcast From KHN Focuses On The Closure of Mercy Hospital Fort Scott

A new podcast from K H N titled ‘Where It Hurts’ focuses on healthcare in rural America. The first season titled, ‘No Mercy’ was released in late September. The story is reported on by Southeast Kansas native Sarah Jane Tribble who grew up in Parsons, Kansas on a 10-acre farm that her parents still live on today.  ‘No Mercy’ tells the story of the Mercy hospital in Fort Scott, Kansas closing at the end of the 2018 and the lives it touched. I spoke with Sarah Jane Tribble last week, and she first tell us how she came to create the No Mercy podcast.
