Memorial Health Introduces "Open Arms" Apartment

Helping families deal with medical emergencies, Memorial Health cut the ribbon for what they call an "open arms" apartment yesterday. It's a spot that Georgetown Grove Apartments donated to the hospital.

If they need to, families from out of town will be allowed to stay in the apartment free of charge.

"The apartment is open to any family that has a medical crisis and is in need of a place to stay while their loved one is undergoing care," said the hospital's Kathy Kleinsteuber.

Right now, there's only one open arms apartment in Savannah, but they're hoping to get a few more in the future.
