Caught on the rebound: Recent update on Cartersville Medical Center. We missed this last week so we’re sharing today. Chris Mosley, the chief executive officer at Cartersville Medical Center, had this update for the crowd at the Adairsville Eggs & Issues:

  • The current ER sees approximately 175 patients per day, thus demanding their expansion from 30 beds to 42.
  • The new Urgent Care facility on Main Street already has started to see great volumes, filling the gap between primary and emergency care needs, he says.
