Jacobson Memorial Hospital Care Center and its clinics, the Elgin Community Clinic and Glen Ullin Family Medical Clinic, have developed a coloring book for young patients. The coloring book, along with crayons, is available at the clinic reception desks and at the JMHCC nursing station for young patients or youngsters whose family members are being treated.
