Marge Tajchman accepts a plaque on behalf of St. Luke Hospital in Marion for its continuing commitment to the National Disaster Medical System. St. Luke was one of 23 hospitals to receive a plaque during the South Central Kansas Hospital Preparedness meeting June 20. Presenting the plaque to Tajchman are William Howard (left), from the Robert J. Dole Department of Veterans Affairs, and Doug Stroud, from the Veterans Health Administration Office of Emergency Management. Hospitals that assist with the mission of the Department of Defense and the NDMS sign memorandums of understanding stating that in times of national need they are willing to assist by providing quality care to the masses.
