New hospital tour…

Fillmore County Hospital CEO Paul Utemark explains the layout of the physical therapy and cardiac-rehab. area in the new replacement hospital in Geneva to Third District Nebraska Congressman Adrian Smith Friday morning. Smith asked Utemark several questions during the hour tour on February 10 including his concerns on rural health care and critical access standards. Other areas covered included staffing, services offered and sharing of services with the new hospital. Utemark told Smith he appreciated an opportunity to have an open, honest report with the congressman. “I think the new hospital will not only be functional, but it fits our community,” Utemark said. “It also shows the momentum that’s happening in our community.” After the tour, Smith went to Geneva Java & Bistro for a mobile office meeting. “It’s great to see new projects,” Smith said. “Well done.”
