Our pledge to provide “healthcare close to home” hits home most clearly in the area of diagnostic testing. As recently as a decade ago, if you lived in “these parts,” you would drive a hundred miles and spend tiring hours on the road to receive a test that might be run in minutes.
Such tests are now available near your driveway, because the Somervell County Healthcare Authority Board saw to it that GRMC made strategic purchases to bring high level technology to our community.
It wasn’t only the distance, time and cost that concerned our Board. It was that those factors caused folks to put off getting the tests they badly needed. In reminding you that these diagnostic tools are now easily accessible at GRMC, we also call you to action. Don’t put off an annual test, or one your physician has recommended. Call us today. Set up a time. And remember — most of the news we give is good news.
