Continued expansion of TCMH is profoundly important to the vitality of the healthcare community in Texas County. This expansion will bring a broader scope of quality, state of the art care, right here at home. It will also allow us to attract much needed providers and to expand the services that TCMH has to offer our patients. It is necessary to expand and grow the hospital in order to continue providing the best care possible for our communities.
Expanding the hospital is wonderful for the people of Cabool and the rest of Texas County because it will bring our infrastructure into the 21st Century. A hospital is only as good as its staff, and the staff at TCMH is excellent. Providing a building that is equipped with everything from private patient rooms to new operating rooms will help the staff perform their duties in the highest possible manner.
Typically people have two things they want in healthcare—high quality healthcare that’s close to home. That’s exactly what we are able to offer at TCMH. This construction project demonstrates the hospital’s commitment to the area patients and to the physicians and staff that care for the patients. Larger, more technologically advanced spaces will allow the physicians and the hospital staff better areas to do our jobs more efficiently which will in turn create a better overall patient experience.
I am looking forward to a new surgery department that will have operating rooms designed for the latest in surgical equipment allowing us to be better able to provide minimally invasive surgical procedures for improved safety and satisfaction of our patients. Our new pre- and post-surgery area will provide better privacy for patients and their family members. A new surgery department will also greatly enhance retention of current physicians and recruiting of new physicians and surgeons to our hospital.
TCMH enhances the lives of many every month, from birth to serious illnesses and injuries. The continued growth and technological advancement of the hospital is vital to the people we serve. As our community ages, TCMH must be positioned to be there for our frail elders needing additional hospital oversight after major surgeries or illnesses. The expansions planned for TCMH will provide for these upcoming needs and will be a facility for the area communities to be proud of.
