AllianceHealth Madill Starts Swing-Bed Program

On Jan. 28, Dana Hollowell, the Director of Marketing for AllianceHealth Madill, reported the start of a Swing-Bed Program.

Hollowell said the new program is needed for a few reasons, but the main one is continued care for the patient. She said due to reduced Medicare reimbursement, many hospitals discharge the patient as soon as they are stable. “Once the patient’s condition is stabilized, the hospital’s discharge resource manager (typically a social worker or nurse) communicates directly with the medical team (and to a lesser extent with the family) to plan the patient’s anticipated post discharge needs and appropriate placement,” Hollowell said.

Often, many hospitals are in an urban or university setting, leaving the skilled nursing or rehab medical facilities as stepping stones to home or other permanent stage care for the patient.

This year’s theme was “Driven to Grow,” and that is exactly what the Chamber of Commerce has planned for this next year.

While the banquet is meant to recognize and celebrate all the success Marshall County has made in the past year, it also sets the tone for the upcoming year.

Locals Involved in Musical ‘Mama Mia’ at Ardmore’s Little Theatre

A sunny Greek island paradise in the Mediterranean is the setting for Ardmore Little Theatre’s upcoming production, “Mama Mia,” which opens on Valentine’s Day for the first of seven performances.

The musical features more than 20 songs created by ABBA, one of the greatest international pop music groups of all time, with the songs woven into a story about a 20-year-old bride-to-be’s efforts to determine who her father is.

An invitation to the wedding brings three men from her mother’s past back to the island they each last visited 21 years earlier.

The daughter’s two best friends and her mom’s two closest friends also come for the wedding, and much of the romantic comedy is told through the magic of ABBA’s timely tunes.

He Did It

On Feb. 8, 2019, Marshall County’s own Dan Little ran his way into the history books, and the “Guiness Book of World Records.”

“He did it!” was on the lips of every resident in Marshall County and many more who were cheering Dan on from miles away.

For seven days while Dan was flying around the world, running on each continent, and bearing witness to the incredible strength of the human spirit and willpower; everyone who either knew Dan, or knew about Dan, were waiting patiently for the post of Dan’s finishing time for each race.

When the reports came in that he had completed all seven marathons, under the cutoff time, many were beaming with pride.
