Welcome to Wrangell Medical Center
We are proud to carry on the tradition of caring, quality healthcare that began in Wrangell nearly 90 years ago with the opening of Bishop Rowe Hospital, just down the street from our current location. Though medical care has advanced since the mid 1920's, and our staff and equipment have entered the digital age, our focus on kind, confidential and respectful care of friends, families and neighbors has never changed.
What's New(s) at WMC?
February 2016, Wrangell - Aside from the 'comfort food' factor, chocolate has become recognized recently for a number of other health-related benefits (according to Medical News Today's website) including: reducing cholesterol, preventing memory decline, reducing the risk of heart disease and stroke. The darker the chocolate, the greater the benefit; recommendations are for 70% or greater cocoa percentage and, of course, added sugars and other fats reduce the health benefits - sorry to all those milk-chocolate lovers out there!
However, regardless of the form, chocolate is a great way to support your local Hospital Auxiliary and the 7th Annual Chocolate Lover's Festival which will take place (click here for the rest of the story)...
