Message from Alicia Edwards, GRMC Board Chair
Preventable Covid-19 hospitalizations are crippling hospitals nationwide and Gila Regional Medical Center (GRMC) is no exception. Hospitals everywhere, including GRMC, are closing ICU’s and other critical services in order to manage the overwhelming number of unvaccinated Covid patients. Right now, New Mexico is operating under crisis standards of care—essentially healthcare rationing–because our state is over 6,000 nurses short. Life is not “back to normal,” and acting like it is is killing people. Take reasonable precautions, wear a mask, get vaccinated.
