The north and south towers will soon undergo the same changes.

    Nurses have been using electronic documentation for a fairly long time at SGMC. Unless this is focusing on backing up data or enlarging the hospitals critical care areas, then this is not recent news.

    maby they can get the bills right now. you go to be treated they charge you some outragious price. then when you pay the bill they refund your insurance ripoff cut.

    MADISON COUNTY MEMORIAL HOSPITAL just had to take a one million dollar bail out from the county and they just spent one and one half million dollars to computerize their records. We are grateful to have a real hospital with real doctors just over the border
