As soon as a new signed contract is returned

A call with Gila Regional Medical Center today confirmed that a contract between GRMC and the Veterans Administration had expired for the hospital to provide services to veterans.
"We support our veterans," a spokeswoman for the hospital said.
She said the renewal of the contract came to GRMC with some changed components that the hospital was required to meet.

"I know that many Americans and many New Mexicans have been glued to their computer screens and televisions, watching every vote be counted," Governor Michelle Lujan Grisham said at the beginning of the press conference on November 5, 2020. "I really appreciate those that are able to tune in."
"Given the data you've seen, you would be correct that the data is not good. We are not trending anywhere in the right direction," Grisham said.
After attendance was taken and the Silver Consolidated Schools board meeting began on Oct. 15, 2020, board member Mike McMillan voiced concerns about the lack of executive sessions during the pandemic.
"I think if we're going to be meeting in the virtual format, there is a procedure to conduct an executive session," McMillan said. "This pandemic is not going away any time soon. We need to have plans to do an executive session either virtually or in person, with appropriate precautions." McMillan asked that those remarks be recorded before moving forward with the regular agenda.
Board president Eddie Flores said they are following the direction of the New Mexico Public Education Department (PED). "It's not something the board members or Mr. Brown has come up with," he said. Flores said the new guidelines from the governor to help mitigate COVID-19 also affect the ability to meet.
