We have continued to expand our services over the years to meet the needs of the region we serve. Emergency medicine is one of those areas that continues to see a growth in demand that warrants the appointment of this position. I’m pleased to welcome Dr. Winther as head of Emergency Services at Little Falls Hospital.”
