OGH board approves ventilators purchase

The Ochiltree County Hospital District Board of Directors met for their regular monthly meeting on Monday evening.

Among other items on the agenda, the hospital board reviewed bids for ventilators. Ochiltree General Hospital currently has only one ventilator, along with anesthesia machines that can be used as ventilators. The board approved a bid of $51,000 for two new ventilators.

The board also discussed new bids for the project to remodel the surgery and X-ray facilities, with the board deciding to allow the building committee to investigate the bids and the companies offering them, and to allow them to make the final decision on which bid to accept.

The board approved hospital privileges for surgeon Jay Blasingame, who will start at OGH in September. They also approved contracts for local physicians to handle ER duties.
