Since May of 2001 when the three health care facili- ties, Westbrook Health Center (WHC), Tracy Area Medical Services (TAMS), and Murray County Memorial Hospital (MCMH) began their efforts to provide some aspects of health care, through regionalization of services, much has happened in the development of med- ical services locally. New physicians have come to our communities -- some with expertise in spe- cialty areas such as Pulmonology and Geriatric Medicine. Staff members, including administration, laboratory and radiology, are shared between the three facilities insuring staffing is appropriate and personnel costs are kept at optimum levels. Many services previ- ously available only at dis- tant health care facilities are now provided locally reduc- ing the need to drive to dis- tant medical facilities for Hospital communities or at a neutral site. As the Task Force con- tinues to its work of develop- ing a quality system of pro- viding health care for the residents of the area, inter- ested persons are encour- aged to contact Task Force members with comments or concerns. Shetek Hospital's Task Force members include: Westbrook Health Center: Jim Jorgenson, Judy Lichty, Dr. Musa Varwani; Tracy Area Medical Services: David Zwach (Task Force Chairman), Jan Otto-Arvizu, Audrey Koopman; Murray County Memorial Hospital: Lyle Onken, Skip Larson, Dan Woldt. Future weeks will include broad information on options being considered by the Task Force. Tune into KJOE Radio AM 106.1, Friday mornings at 9:15, for conversations dealing with Task Force information. Become informed.

The celebration of May Day originated in probably evolved from early Roman rituals. May I ebrated with flowers, music, special gifts, a May long ribbons was the center for dancing and admirers placed at doors and windows. European May Day traditions and rituals are the celebration of Spring as a time of new life ing and the hopes for good planting and rich Today in Europe it is considered a labor holiday rable to Labor Day in the United States. A German of 1493 shows that May was a leisure mo and courtship they referred to as 'spring Middle Ages May Day Festivals were widely Great Britain with much merriment. When the became too wild, the Puritans forced the govern] medical care. As each of the Shetek Hospitals has improved and expanded services, the need for additional office and treatment space has grown. We have physicians but lack office space in which to see and address patient needs. In addition, we lack some of the latest tools for emer- gency and general diagnos- tics. Currently, each Shetek Hospital campus must rely on mobile MRI and CT scan services and often must send patients to off-site locations for this diagnostic assess- ment. MRI (Magnetic Resonance Imaging) and CT Scans (Computed Tomography Imaging) are of significant importance in providing accurate and time- ly diagnosis. In an attempt to address these needs, professional health care facility planners have been engaged to pro- vide assessment of current facility design. Based on their findings recommenda- tions for feasible service area renovations have been pre- sented for consideration. Architects have surveyed each facility and made rec- ommendations for possible future building renovation. The Shetek Hospital's Task Force is now in place with representatives of the three Shetek Hospitals working together to develop a long-rahge plan to provide the most comprehensive, highest quality health care delivery system possible. Meeting regularly since December of 2003, Task Force members have dis- cussed and studied several options for providing medical services for the region. From the original five options con- sidered, two options are now being explored: Expanding specialty medical services at each Shetek Hospital campus and implementing the necessary facility improvements to support the services offered on that campus.
