Full Service Hospital Dedicated in Gilmer

The city of Gilmer is now the proud owner of a full-service hospital after dedication ceremonies today. With local and state officials on hand, the ribbon was cut to dedicate "East  Texas Medical Center" Gilmer.

After a 6-million dollar renovation, the facility will now offer 34-bed inpatient medical, an intensive care ward, and a surgery suite. U-S senator John Cornyn was also on hand to dedicate the hospital. The facility will open for inpatient admissions within a few weeks.
