What's news this week in Crittenden County...

To use a layman’s medical term, Crittenden Health Systems (CHS) is “feeling much better” these days. Two short years ago, the hospital and its affiliated services were, quite frankly, on life support. Management and staff were almost reluctant to discuss the dire situation. On the record, they might have offered an ominous whisper about tough times, but in reality, some feared the worst – closure.
