For those of us who lived here 30 years ago we certainly appreciated the old building with one exam room and the grouchy old retired Doctor who ran it. We marvel at the new facility we now have.
Our new Medical Center is the result of many years of hard work by full time residents and our fantastic summer residents as well. Grant money and private donations made this incredible facility a reality.
The new building has a comfortable waiting area, large office, four exam rooms, emergency facilities, complete lab set up and state of the art X-Ray capabilities. There is room for physical therapy equipment and two rooms with complete Dental facilities.
All this wonderful new infrastructure is great but you need the trained personnel to run it. We are blessed with a talented full time Physician and a Nurse Practitioner just as capable. They are supported by a staff of technicians fully trained to assist the Doctors and operate all the medical equipment. We have a Dentist and several Hygienists who are in Lake City on a regular basis.
Living in this beautiful high country where recreation is king we need emergency crews available 24/7. We are extremely fortunate to have a highly trained group of EMTs. Our EMTs are every day citizens who care enough to put themselves thru rigorous training to be able to help their fellow citizens when the need arises. Be it accident or other health problems these EMTs drop what they are doing and rush to help when needed. They are supported by two fully equipped ambulances as well as other emergency vehicles. These EMTs are for the most part leading citizens who are very special people and they are certainly appreciated for their hard work and dedication.
Lake City is truly blessed in so many ways it makes you wonder if that rainbow in the picture above might be coming from another special place.
