Jim Wahlmeier and Sister Susan Stoeber

Sister Susan Stoeber, who has worked at what is now the Cloud County Health Center for 40 years, was honored for her service in a ceremony earlier this month.

Hospital CEO Jim Wahlmeier presented the service awards to Sister Susan and other employees.

Sister Susan is a registered nurse who works in the intensive care unit and in other areas.

When Sister Susan went to work there, the facility was called St. Joseph Hospital and it was operated by the Sisters of St. Joseph of Concordia, as it had been since its founding in 1903.

In 1985, the Concordia congregation transferred ownership of the hospital to the Sisters of St. Joseph of Wichita, which then transferred it to the Salina Regional Health Center 10 years later. In 2003, the hospital became a stand-alone nonprofit facility.
