Hospital warns of scam phone calls

Please be advised that someone may be calling area residents claiming to be from McPherson Hospital and attempting to collect on outstanding balances. While a call of this type could be legitimate, it is suggested that anyone receiving such a call asking for credit card information or other personal data, do not share any information. Simply hang up and call the hospital patient financial services line at 620-798-2617 to verify the legitimacy of the contact. The number that is appearing with these calls is not a local number, and attempts to return calls to that number actually cycle back to the victim’s number. 

Local law enforcement has been notified and it is suggested anyone experiencing this type of activity to also call the Law Enforcement Center at 620-245-1266.
