A little BCMH History!

Mitchell Oaks (of Butler) holds a hospital bill for his father's birth at the Butler Community Hospital - the first hospital in Bates County.

The total came to $47.75, "paid in full by check", and was signed by the founder, Mrs. S.C. Stayton, on June 6, 1928. Thank you, Mitchell, for donating this historical document to BCMH.
