Thursday, the hospital received notice via email that it has been terminated from the Medicare/Medicaid program effective November 6th, 2015. Michael McAndrew, Hospital CEO stated, “As CEO of the hospital, I was very surprised at the notice of termination. Our hospital staff and physicians work hard to provide high quality patient-centered care. We will work diligently to resolve the issues identified during the recent CMS survey.”
We have a meeting scheduled with CMS officials on Tuesday, October 27th at 1:00 P.M. We hope to get the matter resolved at that meeting. If we are unable to do so at that time we will officially begin an appeal process. We intend to be transparent about this. We realize the gravity of the situation and have done and will do whatever it takes to address the findings. As we learn more we will disseminate the information via all media outlets.
