For Patients

A Healing Environment

Welcome to Grundy County Memorial Hospital. Whether you are a first-time patient or have used our hospital for health care services in the past, we are honored that you have selected GCMH for your care.

Our goal is to provide the best care possible to you and your family – in fact, many patients have described the care they receive at GCMH as a feeling of ‘being treated as if I were family.’ It’s a reflection of the compassion our Associates put into practice each day, and a distinct small town feeling of hospitality that you may not sense at an urban medical center.

The care of our inpatients at Grundy County Memorial Hospital is managed by a Hospitalist. A hospitalist is a medical provider who specializes in the care of patients who are hospitalized. Our hospitalist focuses on your recovery, while communicating and coordinating necessary care with your primary care doctor and other medical specialists who may be involved in your care.

Our Inpatient Department also provides care to patients who need ‘skilled nursing care’, which is care for patients who no longer need round-the-clock medical care, but can benefit from hospitalization to speed recovery from an illness or injury. Skilled Care can provide short-term care for those who need further medical care before returning home or to a long-term care setting. Dedicated Physical Therapy may be part of a Skilled Care stay, and is conveniently provided by GCMH’s expert therapy staff.

Grundy County Memorial Hospital’s Inpatient Department is also able to provide Hospice care to individuals who need that special care for chronic and end of life services.
