Starting with the positive

We are posting on our Facebook page, “Behind the Mask.” From time to time it highlights different groups or areas in the hospital and provide the public with bits of information not readily known about how we’re responding to the pandemic. The most recent feature is on our Intensive Care Unit. (Click photo to enlarge)

What’s new?

Starts Tuesday!!

Final issue of COVID-19 GGH Update
As we start transitioning to a “new normal” this daily COVID-19 update will transition as well. Starting next week, the update will include general hospital news as well as a COVID-19 section. “News in General” will be hosted on a new page on our web site and will be published Tuesday and Friday afternoons. The “Reporting on COVID-19 activity in staff and patients” table currently in the COVID updates will be at the top of the new web page. That way, the most current numbers will always be available for viewing between published issues. Special editions of News in General will go out as needed. 

With its broader mandate, these updates will replace our bimonthly staff newsletter, General Express. The goal is to provide timely news in an easily accessible manner.

Resources and Supplies

Staff Support

Staff giveaways
Yesterday’s table in the main lobby of donated goodies was a success – too much of a success in fact, as staff gathered closely without physical distancing. If we receive any other donated items for staff, we’ll be working with the screeners to hand items out in a safe manner.


Freeing up space for patients in our main parking lot
As we ramp services up, we want to make sure patients have easy access to our main door. Please leave spaces closest to main entrance for our patients and visitors. Also, those who normally park in other hospital lots but have been using the main lot need to start using their old location. Thanks!

Parking fees to resume
Effective June 29, visitors, staff and professional staff will be charged for parking at our normal parking rates.
