PITTSBURG — Drs. Glen Singer and Brian Wolfe were given the evening’s highest honor Saturday night at the annual awards banquet of the Community Health Center of Southeast Kansas.

The physicians joined the CHC/SEK in August, 2013, after having been in private practice together since 1983. The switch allows them to keep seeing their regular patients as well as those who typically don’t have the resources to visit a physician. 

Krista Postai, executive director of the CHC/SEK, presented the award, called the Sheridan Award, named after Mother Mary Bernard Sheridan who built the first hospital in Crawford County to provide care to the miners and their families regardless of their ability to pay. She started the first pre-paid insurance plan in Kansas, charging 25 cents a month for all procedures and visits.
