LCHD celebrates National Hospital Week

National Hospital Week celebrates hospitals and the women and men who support the health and well-being of their communities through dedication and compassionate care from the heart. We are thankful to all of the dedicated individuals – physicians, nurses, therapists, engineers, food service workers, volunteers, administrators and so many more – for their contributions. From providing treatment and comfort to the sick, to welcoming new life into the world, hospitals are central to a healthy and optimistic community. At Lynn County Hospital District, our people really are a priority and we are thankful for their dedication in ensuring our facility is one of the best in this area.

Medicare officials refused recently to name the companies that have sought or received such approval or even to say how long CMS has allowed the practice.
