Benchmark Healthcare of Monett hosted a "Fall Open House" in October. Among those attending the event were social workers, public administrators and hospice providers from the surrounding area as well as hospital staff from area hospitals. Pictured above, from left, are: Trish Markussen, Benchmark administrator who planned the event; Linda Kee, social worker from Cox Monett Hospital; Julie Hatchel, social worker from Freeman Senior Serenity in Joplin; and Darlene McPheely Benchmark's admissions/marketing. In addition to healthcare professionals, family members also attended and there were surprise visits from previous residents who were discharged to home following Benchmark's rehab to home services. Guests toured the facility and were invited to enjoy lunch, a variety of desserts and hot apple cider. The event closed with door prize drawings for two beautiful mum arrangements. "Benchmark Healthcare would like to thank everyone who attended our Fall Open House, and we look forward to future community events," Markussen said.
