Hazmat group meets and disucsses protocols.
GRMC effectively manages patients with infectious diseases frequently as a part of our commitment to serving the healthcare needs of our communities. However, like every other hospital, healthcare agency and provider in the country, GRMC is actively monitoring the developing Ebola situation and based on the evolving CDC Guidelines (http://www.cdc.gov/vhf/ebola/), implementing additional processes to provide the best and safest care possible should we receive a patient with the Ebola virus. These recent incidents are surely another reminder of just how complex and challenging healthcare can be.

Brian Cunningham, CEO

The roadbed and asphalt were washed away, and the water eroded so much of the hillside below the highway, the road crew is having to rebuild a huge area of that hillside to accommodate the weight of new asphalt and the weight of the cars and trucks that travel the road.-- Continue reading
