The Madelia Community Hospital & Clinic (MCHC) is expanding their physical therapy hours from 7 a.m. to 5 p.m. daily, offering patients the opportunity to seek treatment before school or work. In addition, they have added a fourth licensed physical therapist. Michael Doering joins fellow licensed physical therapists Jamie Hitchcock, Jim Hitchcock, and Sarah Lannon and physical therapy assistant, Cassie Woodward.
