Business Buzz: Economic development board to tour hospital clinic site
The next business visit meeting of the Craig/Moffat Economic Development Partnership Board of Directors is scheduled for 4 to 5:30 p.m. Wednesday, Nov. 15, at the Memorial Regional Health Walk-in Clinic, 2020 W. Victory Way.
MRH Chief Executive Officer Andy Daniels and staff will provide a tour of the facility and highlight the construction project.
“I can’t wait to tour the new facility and learn about the future of health care in our community,” CMEDP Executive Director Michelle Balleck said. “These business visit meetings are a great way for us to be out in our local companies, seeing the work they are doing, deeply understanding our economy and making decisions based on the feedback we hear from local business owners and managers.”
The CMEDP board convenes in a boardroom-style meeting quarterly — in January, April, July and October — and tours local businesses during the remaining months. CMEDP board meetings are open to the public, and anyone interested is encouraged to attend the business visit.
For more information, contact Balleck at 620-4370 or email@example.com.
