Remember When…

Throughout this 25th anniversary year, we will travel down memory lane to remind ourselves of the many people, events and accomplishments that have made Southtown such a great place to live and work.

National Rural Health Association makes Southtown Sparkle!

The Southtown Council Environment and Public Works Committee selected National Rural Health Association (NRHA); 521 E. 63rd St., for the January Sparkle Award. New to Southtown, NRHA has been in operation for 30 years providing leadership on Rural Healthcare issues through education, research, and advocacy. It is the only national organization serving a broad spectrum of health care providers who share a common goal of improving healthcare access and quality for rural Americans.
