SCKMC Offers Sales Tax Luncheon

October 14, 2014

With less than three weeks left before the November election, representatives from South Central Kansas Medical Center are busy meeting with the public to discuss the need for a ten-year, one-half cent sales tax. Should the tax pass, funds would be used for a variety of health related initiatives including physician recruitment and development of an afterhours urgent care clinic.

Arkansas City, KS - With less than three weeks left before the November election, representatives from South Central Kansas Medical Center are busy meeting with the public to discuss the need for a ten-year, one-half cent sales tax. Should the tax pass, funds would be used for a variety of health related initiatives including physician recruitment and development of an afterhours urgent care clinic.

"Every effort will be made to inform the public so they may weigh in to decide the issue," said Steve Perkins, SCKMC's Chief Executive Officer.

Perkins and Chief Marketing Officer, Clayton Pappan have met with several groups over the past eight weeks explaining their position. They have two more public meetings planned.

"We feel it is important for us to be out in the community presenting, not just to explain the need for the sales tax but also to be able to answer any questions the public may have," Pappan said.

SCKMC will be hosting a luncheon this Thursday, October 16th at Noon in their Outpatient Services Building, located adjacent to the hospital. The meeting is open to the public and a grab-and-go lunch will be provided at no charge. The luncheon will consist of a presentation discussing the need for and potential use of funds from the sales tax.

Hospital representatives will also be available at 7:00 p.m. on Monday, October 20th for a town hall forum scheduled to be held at the Arkansas City Senior Center. The meeting will also include representatives from the City of Arkansas City.

"We won't be making a formal presentation Monday night. We will be providing information, but would like to keep it more casual than some of our other meetings. Our plan is to simply have a conversation with those in attendance, allowing as much time as possible to answer their questions directly," Pappan said.

More information regarding the hospital sales tax is available through the medical center's website, www.sckmc.org. In addition, SCKMC has set up a special e-mail address specifically for sales tax related questions and comments, salestax@sckrmc.org.
