Endless Mountain Health Services is getting a makeover. Williams is happy to help.
The Montrose-based health system is preparing to build a new 25-bed hospital and multi-specialty physician suite.
The nearest such facility is about 30 minutes away under normal travel conditions, and longer during inclement weather.
Frank Billings, one of our vice presidents, pointed out that, “Additional travel time can represent the difference between life and death, or complete recovery and partial recovery.”
That’s why we recently presented a $50,000 check to Endless Mountain CEO Rex Catlin to show our support for the new hospital.
It’s one of several things we’ve supported locally this year, including the Susquehanna County Library System, Wilkes-Barre Riverfest and Montrose Night Out.
The need for upgraded local health care services is strong. Last year, Montrose General Hospital accommodated more than 39,000 clinic visits and more than 4,000 emergency room visits.
The existing building was built in 1956 and has been expanded by wooden and mobile structures over the years.
It also lacks room for new services that are becoming the standard for care in a modern health care facility.
You can read more about our gift in the local newspaper coverage. The new facility is expected to break ground this year.
