Fisher County Hospital reacts to Hamlin Hospital closure

News Staff's picture

On the heels of the Hamlin hospital’s announcement it would close its doors at the end of July, Fisher County Hospital CEO Leanne Martinez discussed with the board last week about promoting the Fisher County facility to community members.

As ongoing changes continue to ripple through the healthcare industry and more and more hospitals are being forced to close their doors, Martinez said the news the Hamlin hospital would also soon close hits close to home. She went on to explain to the board how she thought it would be a good time to reach out to community members about how important it is to keep the FCH open for business.

Martinez explained that it’s more than just the jobs the hospital brings to Fisher County; it is about the services the facility extends to the community. She said that it is easy to take the hospital for granted because it is an institution that has always been in the community.

The administration has been discussing ways to better inform people about all of the services the hospital has to offer and why it is important to Fisher County as a whole that residents make use of as many of those services locally as possible.
