As of January 1st, Mountain View Hospital in Madras in now known as St. Charles-Madras.

 

St. Charles - Madras CEO Jeanie Gentry says the transition has gone smoothly and there couldn't be a better partner than St. Charles.

 

"We’re just really pleased that we could find a partner that had the resources we needed. They’re so close to us already. St. Charles is the perfect partner because they already take care of the people of Jefferson County and now they can do it in a more coordinated, systematic way; so we're very excited about the changes."

 

Gentry says the cold weather has prohibited them from painting the new sign with their new name, but everything else has gone well and they appreciate having access to all of the tools available through the St. Charles system.

 

She adds that within the next few years, St. Charles has committed to spending about $10-million to expand the facility.
