Larned hospital gets new administrator

Matt Heyn has been named administrator of the Pawnee Valley Community Hospital in Larned.

Heyn, who has been vice president of finance and chief financial officer at Central Kansas Medical Center in Great Bend for the past two years, begins his duties April 12.

Pawnee Valley Community Hospital began operations in early March as result of a partnership between the Larned community and Hays Medical Center. The Larned hospital had been in danger of closing before the agreement.
