EXPECT TO SEE NEW SIGNS SOON, REFLECTING THE NAME-CHANGE TO "ERLANGER AT HUTCHESON"… BUT THE HOSPITAL IS STILL STRUGGLING FINANCIALLY.
   

ANOTHER 1.5-MILLION DOLLARS WAS LOST IN OPERATIONS DURING THE MONTH OF OCTOBER AT THE FORT OGLETHORPE HOSPITAL.  SURGERIES AND PATIENT COUNTS ARE STILL BELOW PROJECTIONS… BUT BIRTHS IN THE WOMEN’S CENTER EXCEEDED EXPECTATIONS.
   

AT A RECENT BOARD MEETING, IT WAS ALSO ANNOUNCED THAT ERLANGER AT HUTCHESON WILL APPLY TO SET-UP A RESIDENCY PROGRAM FOR YOUNG DOCTORS… WITH THE UNIVERSITY OF TENNESSEE COLLEGE OF MEDICINE.
