A Message From President and CEO Barry Davis - May 6, 2020

I would like to thank our business community for supporting the staff at AMMC during this concerning time.  Many of you have made monetary donations, delivered food to employees, sent cards of encouragement or provided personal protective equipment.  The AMMC family is deeply grateful for your efforts.

The safety of our community is a priority at AMMC, and I want to offer local businesses an opportunity to keep your staff informed on COVID-19.  We have trained experts that are available to do an onsite presentation on the most current COVID-19 information and how to keep your employees safe in the workplace and at home.

The AMMC COVID-19 task force committee has been meeting daily for several months.  This committee has done a tremendous job researching guidelines to prevent the spread of COVID-19 and implementing policies to ensure AMMC is a safe environment for our patients, visitors and staff. 

I encourage you to call AMMC at 870-239-7101 to schedule a COVID-19 program for your business.  Please feel free to share the information included in this packet with your staff.  Thanks for supporting AMMC.
