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.
GRHS has adapted well to the changing tides of health care, despite a round of reductions a couple of years ago. It has chosen not to compete with the giants, but to partner with them to bring services to the Glencoe area while still maintaining that small-town clinic and hospital persona. It has expanded programs that are needed, while trimming programs that have low use and can be better served by its partners.
We continue to be impressed with the quality and variety of services offered by our local health-care system, from long-term care to assisted living to hospitals and medical clinics.
The new addition is just another example of GRHS’ commitment to providing quality care to the community. Its staff recognized that the demand for rehabilitative services has been growing in leaps and bounds (65 percent since 2011) and made a huge, $4.1 million commitment to make sure that demand was met.
Kudos to GRHS. We expect you will being serving our area communities well into generations to come.
