After a year of planning and rebuilding, last springâ€™s deadly tornadoes are still wreaking havoc on some Green Country towns.
Folks in Stroud have a chance to turn tragedy into an opportunity.
When much of Stroud was leveled by a tornado, the hospital had some of the worst damage.
The hospital board is asking the community for help.
In a survey being conducted this week, residents of Stroud and surrounding areas are being asked about their medical needs so the new hospital's services can be tailor-made to fit the community.
"A lot of times, as we say, a lot of good comes out of bad. And, we're probably going to be offering better medical care for the area than was offered in the last 20 years,â€ says Hospital Board Chairman Bill Sasser.
Oklahoma State University is conducting the telephone survey this week.
The hospital is scheduled to re-open in September
