“As a resident of Windom since 1980, I recognize the importance of quality healthcare in our community. At Windom Area Health, community members can access services locally and see specialists providing outreach from other health facilities. WAH has made significant improvements, enabling better service to the community. I will work with the rest of the board to ensure WAH continues to progress in meeting the medical needs of the communities it serves.”
