  • Donation to BMC honors Joyce Curran
    SOUTH RENOVO — Renovo resident Fred Curran recently presented Bucktail Medical Center Administrator Tim Reeves with a $1,000 check in memory of his wife Joyce Curran, who passed away recently. The check was sent on behalf of Pipeliner Local Union 798 of Tulsa, Oklahoma from which Fred retired following 52 years of service and remains a member today. Danny Hendrix, business manager of Local 798, assisted Curran with acquiring the donation. Fred and Joyce Curran were well known to area residents and moved back to Renovo in recent years. Joyce once worked at the BMC before eventually being on the board of supervisors in the 1990s. When Joyce became ill, after returning home, the BMC became a necessity, and the care that she received there was the best possible, according to Fred. “Joyce was a board member of the BMC in the ’90s, she loved this hospital, and she died here,” he said of his wife. “I can tell you first hand, this is the best hospital that we have ever been to; this is where she received the most immediate and compassionate care,” Fred explained. “We have been to so many hospitals both in and out of the area. The employees here that take care of patients are second to none.” When it comes to the gas power plant proposed for Renovo, Curran said area residents and the businesses and unions that will be here while constructing the plant need to act now to secure a future for the BMC. “It’s time to step up. With hundreds expected here to build the plant, we need the BMC here more than anything,” he said.
