Since 2009 EMHS hospitals have owned convenient care clinics located inside six Walmart supercenters throughout central, eastern, and northern Maine. This week we informed Walmart that we intend to close five of the six “The Clinic at Walmart” sites, operated by subsidiaries of Eastern Maine Medical Center, The Aroostook Medical Center, Inland Hospital, and Sebasticook Valley Health. Convenient access to care will continue through the hospital’s other walk-in clinics.
EMHS president and CEO M. Michelle Hood, FACHE and Affiliated Healthcare Systems (AHS) president and CEO Miles Theeman have announced that Scott A. Oxley, EMHS vice president and chief accounting officer, and interim chief financial officer has accepted a new position with Affiliated Healthcare Systems (AHS).
Starting July 18, Kara Janes, age 44, a graduate social work student at the University of Maine, will spend 10 days as an “elderly resident” at Lakewood, a continuing care center, on the Inland Hospital campus in Waterville. It’s part of a program called “Learning by Living,” and Lakewood is one of only eight facilities in New England participating in this unique study.
Following a successful Medicare survey, and a lot of hard work over the last 24 months, Maine’s Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS) has recommended ending the emergency receivership of Down East Community Hospital (DECH), in which Eastern Maine Healthcare Systems (EMHS) has been acting as emergency receiver. In June of 2009, the State of Maine asked EMHS to become the emergency receiver and operator of DECH. EMHS agreed and immediately got to work on correcting deficiencies that could have affected the hospital’s Medicare/Medicaid provider status.
A Waterville accountant has been elected chairman of the EMHS Board of Directors. P. James Nicholson, CPA was elected at the EMHS annual meeting of directors held June 16 in Brewer. Evelyn Silver of Bangor was elected vice-chair.
