KCIW Investigates: A Hospital in Brookings?

Curry Medical Center
500 5th Street
Brookings, Oregon

You may not know that Brookings is the largest city in Oregon without a hospital. And that’s why what Curry County Commissioner Sue Gold is proposing might seem strange … she wants to put the brakes on the stand-alone Emergency Room planned for Brookings by the Curry Health Network. Curry Health operates Curry General Hospital in Gold Beach.

In this edition of KCIW Investigates, Lori Gallo-Stoddard Curry County examines the issue, with comments by Commissioner Gold, County Commissioner Chris Paasch, Gold Beach physician and past medical staff president of Curry General Hospital, Dr. Reggie Williams, and Curry Health Network’s Chief Executive Officer Ginny Razo.
