Maximum functionality for a facility that gives initial care to many trauma patients is critical to the hospital's ED, said Jason Rogers, a nurse practitioner at UMMC Holmes County since 2011 and a UMMC employee since 2002.He sees an average 25-30 patients daily in the ED and consults via Tel Emergency with physicians in UMMC's ED in Jackson.
It's all part of a million renovation of the 25-bed facility in Lexington, originally built in 1950 as Holmes County Community Hospital, that's providing care to a growing number of residents from the Holmes County region north to Grenada."UMMC Holmes County is a great asset to Holmes County, and it will make it that much better to update it," she said."They have a great physical therapy department, and it will be in a completely new area of the hospital when the construction is finished." The Lexington hospital came into UMMC's hands in 2000, and about a decade ago became one of Mississippi's critical access hospitals providing care for patients with acute illnesses or conditions that require observation or hospital admission.Of patients he tends to, about four or five are admitted each day."For a small ER, Holmes County has some of the highest acuity," Rogers said.Renovations also include: Trauma rooms in the Emergency Department of UMMC Holmes County are equipped with the latest technology needed to assess patients who are acutely ill before possible transport to UMMC Grenada or UMMC's Jackson campus. Mary Ann Stevens of West, whose district includes Holmes County, has been eagerly keeping up with the construction.
Stevens serves on the hospital's community advisory board.
Patient services coordinator Marie Coffee has worked at UMMC Holmes County for the past 15 years, driving about 20 miles each way from her home in Attala County.
She's watched the construction as it transforms the hospital.
For example, patients in the Grenada area and surrounding counties who need wound management or rehabilitation services can receive that at the Lexington hospital.
A physician from the Grenada hospital visits the Lexington campus several times a month to provide colonoscopies and a number of gastrointestinal services, but performs more intricate procedures on those patients at the Grenada campus. Terry Pummer, a physician in the Center for Wound Care and Hyperbaric Medicine at UMMC Grenada, travels to UMMC Holmes County every Wednesday to provide wound care.
Ambulances traditionally pull up to the front of the University of Mississippi Medical Center Holmes County - but now, they're circling to temporary headquarters on the back side.
