One thing that needs to happen for Gila Regional Medical Center is to re-open for elective surgeries, procedures, and other outpatient services such as lab work and radiology. "We have followed the Governor's Orders every step of the way, even if it has been detrimental to the financial situation of the hospital," said Richard Stokes, Chief Financial Officer.
Much like other businesses that were required to close or reduce services, the hospital was required to stop all non-essential surgeries in March in order to conserve PPE. This was in the event a surge of COVID-19 positive cases were to occur at the hospital. No such surge has occurred.
These are the mens and women's Spring and KOM results for the virtual Tour of the Gila that took place thanks to efforts from Race Director Jack Brennan in conjunction with Project Echelon and Zwift.
The Silver City Daily Press and Independent hosted a virtual forum between the Democratic candidates for the District 28 State Senate seat on May 14, 2020. Publisher Nick Seibel acted as moderator.
Senator Gabriel Ramos was first to give opening statements. "I am the candidate with the experience," he said. "I was born and raised in Hurley and I went to the Cobre Public Schools. I was elected to my first position as County Clerk when I was 25." Ramos has also served on the school board for Cobre, the Hurley Town Council, as a Grant County Commissioner and is currently the State Senator in District 28.
