I hope that all of the members of our MCDH family and friends are able to enjoy a Thanksgiving holiday this year in which we are able to count our blessings and give thanks for all that we have received in 2011. The times are definitely hard but I’m hoping that everyone that this message reaches out to, has at least 1 thing that they can give thanks for. We at MCDH wish you all the very best!

National Rural Health Day!
—Posted Wednesday, November 16th, 2011 at 8:17 pm—
November 17, 2011 has been designated as National Rural Health Day in the United States. This is a great opportunity for the thousands of small rural hospitals, rural clinics and rural providers to take a bow and receive the heartfelt thanks of each of their local communities. Our rural hospitals are, more than likely, (1) the largest employer in the community, (2) a precious resource that provides cradle to grave care and (3) the reason that our resident friends and neighbors are able to remain living in the home that they have loved for their entire life, or a major reason why people from outside of the area have decided to retire here. We are all of those things to the local citizens of the Mendocino Coast and I would venture to say that nearly every other rural hospital in the United States could say the exact same thing!
The Corridor to Imaging Is Finally Open!

For the first time in over 5 years, MCDH diagnostic imaging patients do not need to go outside in order to obtain an MRI from our hospital. Also, for the first time in over 3 years, patients do not need to go outside for a CT Scan! On October 28, the new connecting corridor from the main hospital to the Diagnostic Imaging Center was officially opened. Thank you to Gus Killion, Linda Dutcher and our General Contractor, JLK, for getting this VERY important piece of the new building completed. It’s supposed to rain this week. But our patients and our staff will be dry!
