Last week, Thursday morning, the Gila Regional Medical Center Board of Trustees, held a final review of a contract, which the members approved.
Brian Cunningham, GRMC chief executive officer, said the hospital is excited to work with the new emergency room provider, Innova Emergency Medical Associates. The company will begin offering services to the GRMC ER at 12:01 a.m. January 1, 2015.
"We are really excited to be working with Innova and its chief executive officer, Dr. Steve Sherick," Cunningham said. "The company is a regional ER provider group. Sherick will be doing shifts here. Innova has a commitment to partnering with us to provide the best possible service to our community."
Innova replaces the present provider EmCare.
