(STURGIS) – Sturgis City Commissioners received an update on Sturgis Hospital becoming a Rural Emergency Hospital.

Gump says Sturgis Hospital would like to make the change as quickly as they can, but want to make sure it’s done properly and legally.
Gump goes on to share some of the steps the hospital needs to take to achieve this status. LINKD.
