2012: Single-Patient Rooms

Because of our generous community the hospital was recently renovated from being a semi-private facility to one with all single-patient rooms. Evidence indicates that single-patient rooms afford a greater measure of privacy, facilitate better communication between the patient and the health care professionals providing care, offer space and an atmosphere better suited for family members to participate in the healing process, and reduce the risk of cross infection. The rooms and bathrooms will have a fresh design, with new paint, lighting, furnishings and equipment.

Generous donor and Gala XIV participants, including individuals, foundations and corporations, have provided gifts of $1.2million toward this project. This community’s industriousness, dependability and willingness to sacrifice to attain a goal has made HCM the beacon of remarkable heath care that it is today.
