Technological advances making it easier for KRHC patients

ALGONA — In the late 1940s it wouldn’t be uncommon for a handwritten piece of paper to take care of a bill at a hospital. Today, technology has taken over almost every aspect of the Kossuth Regional Health Center system.

“In the early days, it was typically private paying for health care needs and things were simpler,” said KRHC Interim Administrator Dar Elbert.
