Hospital Leadership Directed CMS to During Meeting

imagesTerri Bunch, Chief Nursing officer, Scott McDearmont, M.D., Chief of the Medical Staff, Chris Gallagher, M.D., Chief Medical Officer, Attorney Kevin Reed, Attorney Trent Krienke and Michael McAndrew, Hospital CEO travelled to the Federal Building in Dallas yesterday (Tuesday, October 27, 2015). The purpose of the trip was to meet with representatives from CMS regarding the notice of termination sent on Thursday, October 22, 2015.

McAndrew stated, “Our objective was to present information to them regarding recent surveys that we hoped would, at the very least, mitigate the termination and allow us to continue receiving Medicare and Medicaid reimbursement while working through a plan to satisfy their concerns. We felt that our team did a very good job of presenting our side of things. The CMS staff mostly listened and asked a few pertinent questions. At closing, Ms. Odle who led the meeting told us they would meet together as soon as possible to consider our request to lift the termination. We expect to hear something by the end of this week or Monday at the latest.  As I told Ms. Odle, Form 2567 which lists the surveyors’ citations, does not present an accurate or adequate picture of Hopkins County Memorial Hospital. I suggest that if someone wants to see what kind of organization we really are they go to CMS’s own website that rates hospitals, Hospital Compare.Gov. The scores on this website clearly demonstrate a history of low infection rates, high quality care and strong patient satisfaction scores.”
