Lots of goodies and gifts were given to the volunteers to celebrate this day. There was much discussion about activities happening around Fayette County Memorial Hospital. Several new providers will be added to the staff. The surgical area and emergency room are being updated. Oncology services will be moving back. The hospital is trying to manage a new mobile unit to bring people to the hospital.
