Overcoming Throat Cancer
Reducing Icy Falls
Updated: Friday, August 2 2013, 10:18 PM EDTAn area hospital is celebrating a milestone. Angel Medical Center marks 90 years this summer serving the Franklin area. Begun by two brothers in 1923 as a clinic on Main Street, it has grown into a facility with a wide range of services. The hospital is not only vital for the healthcare of residents, but also for the economy of Macon county. Officials say becoming part of the Mission Hospital system has provided a boost. CEO of Angel Medical Center, Jim Bross, says "the next 90 years look very bright in terms of continuing to grow that relationship, expand services where appropriate. We like to say care close to home, where it's safe and effective." A barbecue and community outreach event was the first in a series of events marking the hospital's 90 years of service.Angel Medical Center's 90th Anniversary
