Vote YES for the Morrow County Hospital Levy RENEWAL for continuing Great Care in our community!

After a 20-foot fall from a ladder, a stay at Grant Hospital Trauma Center for multiple fractured bones and other internal injuries, I was transported to Morrow County Hospital Swing Bed for rehabilitation. While there, the caring, diligent nursing staff provided me with individualized care, pain relief and meeting my needs. Since my fractured Jaw was wired shut, the Dietary Department visited my room often to determine if my diet of liquid food was adequate for my special meals and continued to make necessary adjustments.

The Pharmacists provided appropriate meds and gave us insight into the various services of the program. For four weeks, daily, the supportive Physical Therapy Department worked to get me up and walking again, providing excellent staff and equipment. Social Services assisted in making transportation to return to Grant Hospital surgeons for outpatient surgery and for eventual discharge from Morrow County Hospital.

One of the strong advantages of Morrow County Hospital is the fact that all of the services are available locally without the need to travel.
