Extra funds for Sweetwater Medics approved
November 18, 2021
Sweetwater Medics will receive $235,000 from the county to help the ambulance service get through the end of the year.
Sweetwater Medics Director Ron Gatti asked the Board of County Commissioners to provide the additional funds during Tuesday’s meeting. After discussion, all five commissioners voted to approve the funds.
Gatti explained that Sweetwater Medics has seen cost centers shifting and revenues decreasing, particularly since Castle Rock Medical Center took over ground transportation ambulance service from Memorial Hospital of Sweetwater County.
