Garrett Regional Medical Center (GRMC) in Oakland, MD has been named one of the Top 100 Rural and Community hospitals in the United States.
“This designation truly demonstrates the work of our ongoing mission to treat each patient like family and the remarkable patient care provided by our entire team,” said GRMC CEO & President, Mark Boucot. “It is really gratifying to know that Garrett Regional Medical Center now serves as a benchmark for other rural facilities as they strive to achieve similar results. Through creating resourceful and innovative solutions, our hospital is being thought of as a blueprint for successfully navigating the uncertainty of the new healthcare environment.”
Why is this designation so important to you? It means that if you, a friend or a family member are injured or become ill while enjoying your stay near Deep Creek Lake and Wisp, you can be reassured to know that your loved one will also be treated like family by qualified and talented medical professionals.
We never plan to need the hospital’s Emergency Room, but we are very glad to have it so accessible and convenient for those unplanned visits.
GRMC is one of Maryland’s top performing hospitals for lowest surgical site infection rate, lowest readmission rate, lowest occurrence of hospital-acquired conditions, and one of the lowest decision-to-departure times for emergency room visits.
Another convenience is the WVU Urgent Care facility located on Rt. 219 in McHenry, MD, that serves the community 7 days per week, year-round.
