With two children still at home, they will be moving to Rawlins with their sons, Zach, a Senior in high school, and Josh, who is in 7th Grade. The family enjoys running and participating in triathlons, watching movies and spending time together.

MHCC Board of Trustees Chair Rod Waeckerlin noted that “Mr. Harman has demonstrated a history of exemplary leadership within other critical access facilities and we are excited to have him direct MHCC and our clinics as we continue to grow and be at the forefront of healthcare in Carbon County.”

Please join us in welcoming Ken and his family to Carbon County and the Rawlins community.
