Last week, representatives from Senator Bill Nelson’s office, Senator Marco Rubio’s office, and Congressman Neal Dunn’s traveled to Graceville to visit the Campbellton-Graceville Hospital.  The meeting was organized by retired Judge Woody Hatcher and Malone Mayor Gene Wright.  

The purpose of the meeting was to address problems facing the Graceville Hospital as well as all rural hospitals throughout the country.  

The delegation discussed with the hospital staff particular problems the hospital is facing and what could be some of the solutions.  These solutions would not only alleviate some of those problems but would include programs that could be implemented to help the Graceville Hospital and other rural hospitals like Graceville.  This would allow them not only survive but to grow to better serve the community that depends heavily on their services for their health care needs.

The representatives of Senator Nelson, Senator Rubio, and Congressman Dunn stated their offices are concerned about rural communities and this may be an area they can possibly be of assistance.  No date for a future meeting has been set yet, but the wheels are in motion to work with the hospital to keep it open for the medical needs of the area.
