Reagan Hospital District is pleased to unveil their new MyReaganHealth Portal, which will be available to all patients July 15th, 2014.
This interactive web portal will empower patients and their families to take a more active role in their care by providing easy, secure access to their health information and online communication with Reagan Hospital District staff.
“The patient portal is going to be a great asset to our patients and to the district,” CEO Pam Clark said. “We are taking another step into the 21st century with this service. It is going to give patients greater control in their healthcare lives, and I think it is going to greatly improve people’s experience.”
Crews work to clear away some of the oldest portions of Reagan County ISD’s Elementary campus. The demolition work will make way for the section of the facility that will be built new. Superintendent Steve Long said that the asbestos abatement finished up on Sunday at the Elementary, and that workers have not run into any problems with the demolition. Mobile classrooms that will house Elementary students next year have also been brought to town and placed across from the high school in the large parking lots south of 12th Street.
In a matter of months Big Lake residents will have another health care option in town.
Rankin County Hospital District is currently working to renovate office space at 901 N. Main Avenue for a clinic.
“We are excited about this opportunity,” Tommy Johnson, CEO of Rankin County Hospital District, said. “Our district is looking for ways to grow along with the booming economy in the area. Big Lake is in the center of that, and for us it just makes sense.”
Johnson said that the clinic, which is located directly across the street from Reagan Memorial Hospital, will end up helping all of the citizens of Big Lake in one way or another.
Reagan County emergency personnel responded to what was reported as an oil field accident Tuesday on the Sugg-A Laredo 3158 rig site some 25 to 30 miles north of Big Lake.
Chief Deputy Destin Wilha said that deputies along with Reagan County EMS responded to a call for an unresponsive person just before 4 p.m.
First responders made all attempts to revive the person, but they were unsuccessful.
The person is identified as Donald Thompson, 44, of Midland.
