Gove County, Kansas

Welcome to 

Gove County

Gove County is located in Northwest Kansas. The county is thirty miles north and south and thirty-six miles east and west for a total of 1,080 square miles. Named after Union soldier Grenville L. Gove, Company F, 11th Kansas Cavalry the county contains the cities of Quinter, Gove City, Grainfield, Grinnell and Park. Interesting natural sights in the county include Castle Rock in the eastern part of the county and Monument Rocks in the southwest part.

Congratulations to David Polifka, Gove County Medical Center, Quinter on being named Trustee of the Year. In an effort to help others in the community understand the operations and financials of the hospital, Dave suggested a new financial reporting delivery to the Board that was easier to understand. Dave’s leadership was instrumental in conducting a community health needs assessment and the enormous task of updating the hospital’s strategic plan.
