Dr. John Esslinger, chief medical officer of UnitedHealthcare Community Plan of Kansas, presented a $48,000 Frontier Rural Health Care grant to the Minneola District Hospital. The check presentation took place Wednesday August 16. UnitedHealthcare established the Frontier Rural Health Care grant program earlier this year to fund organizations and programs aimed at improving health resources and programs in rural areas of Kansas.
