Silver City, NM (June 5, 2020)—The Gila Regional Medical Center Governing Board announced today that year-to-date losses for the hospital through the end of April amount to almost $12.2 million dollars. "Approximately half of this loss can be attributed to the increased costs of preparing for COVID-19 combined with the loss of revenue from canceling elective procedures during the crisis," said Board Chair Alicia Edwards.
