Todd Hudspeth, CEO of JRMC, gave an overview of what has been happening at JRMC at Rotary.
The new center opened July 31, 2011, with a state-of-the-art facility. It was created with the latest in equipment, technology, a design with the patient in mind and input by the employees, he said.
The goal of JRMC is to be the best rural hospital in America, Hudspeth said. To accomplish this, JRMC must have outstanding patient care, a workplace where the employees enjoy coming and have qualified physicians and specialist who enjoy being a part of the care. When employees are happy in their work it translates into better care for the patient, he said.
Hudspeth said the Medical Office Building construction is on schedule. He said JRMC will lease a portion of the space along with Essentia Clinic and the VA clinic. The goal is to be open and using the new space by January 2013.
