Rice Memorial Hospital Board in Willmar, Minn., to consider proposal tonight for joint anesthesia, sleep lab services


WILLMAR -- Local anesthesia services would be enhanced under a proposal to fold them into Willmar Medical Services, a 4-year-old joint venture between Rice Memorial Hospital and Affiliated Community Medical Centers.

The plan would transfer sleep lab services into the joint entity as well.

The proposal is on the agenda of the Rice Memorial Hospital board of directors, which meets at 5:30 p.m. today.
