TELL CITY – Unless you’re a member of a royal family set to deliver a  baby, hospital stays don’t often warrant standing ovations. But first patients admitted to the new Perry County Memorial Hospital were treated to VIP treatment Thursday.

In what appeared to be a seamless transition, about a dozen patients made the move by ambulance from the 65-year-old hospital off Indiana 66 to its new counterpart a few miles away on Indiana 37.
