The Board of Directors and Senior Leader Team at Black River Memorial Hospital (BRMH) have been evaluating responsibilities to the community, current healthcare offerings, sustainability, and health outcomes for Jackson County. BRMH has determined a need to add a primary care clinic combined with mental health and substance misuse counseling. Some of the findings include:
“Being progressive is a core value for BRMH and we want to be proactive in meeting the needs of the community now and in the future,” stated Mary Beth White-Jacobs, President and CEO of BRMH. “We are excited to offer an integrated and holistic system for patients and keep care local for Jackson County residents.”
The new clinic area will include a family medicine physician, nurse practitioner, behavioral and AODA counselors as well as outreach specialists. BRMH will continue to collaborate with local and regional healthcare providers to meet the needs of our community.
The clinic will be added to the west side of the building with construction beginning in August and opening in late spring of 2020. BRMH is finishing its first phase of construction in the Surgical Services Department and Rehabilitation and Occupational Health Department at the end of April 2019. The next phases will begin in the Nutrition Services Department and on the west side of the hospital, including some changes in the Emergency Department.
