GHA Staff Tour the New Morgan Medical Center
In a few short weeks, years of hard work and careful planning will come to fruition for Morgan and surrounding counties. The new Morgan Medical Center in Madison will officially open its doors on Dec. 19, replacing the venerable Morgan Memorial Hospital, which was built in 1959. This new critical access facility sits on more than 24 acres along the Highway 441 Bypass.
CEO Ralph Castillo reports the new hospital is expected to produce an anticipated
$14 million in economic impact to the community and provide more than 50 additional jobs in the first year of operation.
GHA staff had the unique opportunity to tour the hospital on Nov. 30. Castillo proudly served as personal tour guide for approximately 50 staff members through each area of the facility.
“At the end of the day, a hospital is a business. As long as we do things with quality, we will have success,” Castillo said.
GHA President Earl Rogers praised Castillo for his dedication to improving and advancing rural health care.
“Ralph Castillo is fully committed to this hospital and the good people in the Morgan County service area,” said Rogers. “The community will greatly benefit from this brand new replacement hospital and the many services its professionals will provide.”
