Like many hospitals in Southeast Alaska, Wrangell Medical Center is starting to look its age. A brand new hospital is still the long-term plan, but for now, the building is getting a much-needed makeover.
Listen to the audio and read the agenda of the April 8, 2014 borough assembly meeting.
The borough assembly last night voted to postpone discussion of a controversial letter until the next regular meeting. The letter calls for the Southeast Alaska Power Agency and the borough assemblies of Wrangell and Petersburg to “cease and desist” negotiations until Thomas Bay can play a more active role.
Wrangell Medical Center’s annual health fair was Saturday, April 5th. The Nolan Center was packed full of venders and visitors with one mission- promoting healthy living in Wrangell.
On Wednesday, April 23rd, 2014, at 6:00 pm, Wrangell will hold an inter-agency disaster drill. The purpose of this drill is to give Wrangell’s emergency responders and medical teams the opportunity to practice their response in the event of a community wide emergency. This event will be a drill, not a real emergency . No action from community members will need to be taken.
