Montgomery Advertiser: ‘Now’s not the time to have a heart attack’: South Alabama hospital welcomes federal staffing aid. “Hospitals in the southeast Alabama region are currently caring for 25 more patients than they have staffed ICU beds, [Dale Medical Center CEO Vernon] Johnson said on Thursday. However, a U.S. Navy medical unit arrived in Ozark this week in hopes of alleviating this burden. The unit is composed of 14 nurses, four medical providers and two respiratory therapists who will work among the Dale Medical Center staff.”
