Westside Eagle-Observer - - NEWS - STAFF RE­PORTS

GRAVETTE — Ozarks Com­mu­nity Hos­pi­tal is cel­e­brat­ing its 10th an­niver­sary by host­ing an open house. Com­mu­nity mem­bers in Gravette and the sur­round­ing area are in­vited to the event, which will be held from 5 to 7 p.m. Thurs­day, April 12.

The open house will take place in the front lobby of the hos­pi­tal and will fea­ture re­fresh­ments and door prizes, as well as guided tours to al­low guests to learn about the ex­panded ser­vices OCH has to of­fer.

“So much has changed at Ozarks Com­mu­nity Hos­pi­tal of Gravette since we opened in 2008, we felt it would be ap­pro­pri­ate to show­case th­ese changes and of­fer guided tours to the pub­lic,” ex­plained Amanda Git­tlein, mar­ket­ing man­ager for OCH. “We are con­tin­u­ously re­mod­el­ing and ren­o­vat­ing the in­te­rior. We want to re­mind the Gravette com­mu­nity that we are here and let them know we are al­ways adding new tech­nol­ogy and new ser­vices.”

The hos­pi­tal, for­merly known as Gravette Med­i­cal Cen­ter Hos­pi­tal, was re­opened by OCH in April 2008. Af­ter the ac­qui­si­tion by OCH, the hos­pi­tal im­me­di­ately of­fered a 25-bed in­pa­tient ser­vice, a 24-hour emer­gency room and out­pa­tient ser­vices, in­clud­ing lab and ra­di­ol­ogy. Since then, OCH has in­stalled new state-of-the-art equip­ment and con­tin­ued to grow, adding a swing-bed pro­gram, sleep lab, ther­apy ser­vices, be­hav­ioral health, pain man­age­ment, pe­di­atrics, po­di­a­try and gen­eral surgery, just to name a few.

The OCH Health Sys­tem is a tri-state safety-net health­care provider head­quar­tered in Gravette, serv­ing both ur­ban and ru­ral com­mu­ni­ties through­out the Ozarks. The hos­pi­tal is based in Gravette and in­cludes a mul­ti­tude of clin­ics lo­cated in south­west Mis­souri, north­west Arkansas and north­east Ok­la­homa. OCH lo­ca­tions can ac­cept Med­i­caid, Medi­care, UHC Mil­i­tary and other in­sur­ances. For more in­for­ma­tion visit www.OCHon­line.com.
