Salina Regional Health Center, Guest Blog by Tom Martin

Salina Regional Health Center is a comprehensive acute care hospital that serves over 250,000 people throughout north central Kansas. Salina Regional’s diverse medical staff of more than 130 physicians positions us as a leader in health care, in our region. Salina Regional is a community-owned not for profit hospital. Salina Regional has been recognized for our commitment to quality medical care, community service, and state of the art medical equipment.

Over the years, Mahaska and its employees have provided charitable support for Salina Regional, in a variety of ways, including the Donna L. Vanier Children’s Center, Rebecca A. Morrison House, Hospice of Salina, and most recently through the hospital’s Fe for a Cure 5K Race/Walk to support breast cancer patients, at the hospital’s Tammy Walker Cancer Center.


Our Fe for a Cure 5K Race/Walk to benefit breast cancer patients at the Tammy Walker Cancer Center is 9:00 am, Saturday, October 24th. This event starts at SJMS (St. John’s Military School) and finishes at KWU (Kansas Wesleyan University).  We had 700 participants last year for the inaugural event.  We believe we can attract 1,000 people this year.  Last year Mahaska was kind enough to supply coffee and water for this event. Please visit our site at to learn more about the event.

We are proud to partner with Mahaska and its employees to improve the health and quality of life for people in north central Kansas.
