Foundation Executive Director Nancy Seymour invited them to come to the hospital to see their recently renovated rooms They also toured the other areas of the Hospital which had been renovated within the last year, the Outpatient & Surgical Services and Emergency Services.

These three projects have been made possible through generous donations to the Elbert Memorial Hospital Foundation.

Seymour said the Gunnells were pleased with the newly painting rooms and flooring, protective wall covering, lighting, shades, and bathroom fixtures.

In expressing the Foundation's appreciation to the Gunnells, Seymour wanted also wanted to ask why the Gunnells were inclined to give such a nice gift to the Hospital. Mr. Gunnells said he had spent many years inspecting hospitals for the Missouri Department of Health. He said he wanted to support the community hospital and this is his way of giving back to the community. He said, "Elbert Memorial Hospital is a very good hospital with great staff, and it is a very clean hospital." He further stated everyone treated him "just like family."
