GRHS welcomes new geriatric practitioner

GRHS adapting well to changing health care

In the ever-changing landscape of medical care, Glencoe Regional Health Services (GRHS) seems to be doing remarkably well in holding down its little corner of the world among the giants that dominate in the metro area.
Monday, the local health-care provider had a “beam-signing” ceremony to celebrate the new 12,000-square-foot addition it is constructing to house its rapidly growing rehabilitation services program. Construction of the third-floor addition started this summer and should be completed in spring 2016.

I woke up early Tuesday morning (and by early, I mean 3 a.m.) with three annoying sensations — a sore throat, an earache, and the feeling that my dog was staring at me with that “I need to go out, and I need to go out right now,” look in his eyes.
I had heard over the weekend that head colds were making their fall emergence, along with the Asian beetles. Neither are very welcome in my household.

I would hope that the commissioners and Southwest Initiative Foundation would spend more time and money promoting the small cities in McLeod County that are struggling to keep their cities operating.
