Dickinson County Board of Commissioners

IRON MOUNTAIN, MI--   The Dickinson County Board of Commissioners has approved a resolution for Dickinson County Healthcare System to pursue a bond offering. 

DCH is looking to raise $32 million. The money will be used to refinance about $15 million in outstanding debt. The remainder will go toward the purchase of equipment and upgrades to the physical plant.

Equipment DCH intends to buy includes a Linear Accelerator, a Magnetic Resonance Imaging unit, and a CT scanner.

IRON MOUNTAIN, MI--   The Dickinson County Board of Commissioners and Dickinson County Healthcare System Board of Trustees have reached an agreement on the performance of autopsies at the hospital. 

DCHS has outsourced its pathology services to Medical Lab Associates of Marquette. Officials said the hospital had been performing such services without a contract and without reasonable volume, and a decision was made to control costs.
