LMC Wound Care Clinic selected for the 2016 THA Member Showcase

Limestone Medical Center is pleased to announce that the Texas Hospital Association selected LMC’s Wound Care Clinic for the 2016 THA Member Showcase, which was held in conjunction with the Texas Hospital Association Annual Conference and Expo January 21-22, 2016.
Our wound care clinic was recognized for making wound care accessible to our community, enhancing the quality of life in our patients, improving positive outcomes, and reducing emergency room visits and hospital readmissions related to non-healing chronic wounds. Having this specialty available in our community is very convenient for our patients and prevents them from having to travel extended distances to receive specialized treatment.

Groesbeck seniors staying warm with Hugs of Love

Thanks to a very special girl, residents at Windsor Nursing Home and Groesbeck LTC received warm and fuzzy blankets to keep them cozy during February.
Jacey White, a third grader in Groesbeck ISD, was concerned about a friend she had met while going with her grandmother, Maria Rosales, to volunteer at the nursing home and asked her mom, Rabecca Garcia, if she could take him a fuzzy blanket like the one she has to keep cozy and warm. Jacey said, "Maybe for Valentines, we can take him a blanket with hearts. We can take everyone a blanket so they can all stay warm.. and I know they will love it!"
The challenge was accepted and Rebecca reached out to her co-workers, local businesses and social media to make her little girl's dream come true.
