Cuyuna Regional Medical Center’s recent accreditation with The Joint Commission’s Gold Seal of Approval for Advanced Total Hip and Knee Replacement will be the topic of KKIN Radio’s Community Connection program, 94.3 on the FM dial, Thursday, June 9, from 8 to 8:30 a.m. Orthopaedic Clinic Manager John Reimer will be the guest.
