Op-Ed: What’s in Store for 2016
St. James Mercy Hospital Sets Sights on Successful 2016
Making predictions in the New Year—especially in a public manner—often puts one in a precarious position. Will we accomplish what we say we want to accomplish? Or will we fall flat of expectations? Last year, I wrote a column for The Evening-Tribune that outlined what St. James Mercy Hospital expected for 2015. I recently reviewed the column, and I am proud to say we accomplished many of the goals we set out for ourselves. Oak Orchard Health began providing pediatric care this past fall and plans to continue to expand more services in 2016. Loyola Recovery Foundation, Inc., began offering addiction services, and we continued to move forward with agreements to transition long-term care to Post Acute Partners and dialysis services to Fresenius. We transformed how we deliver clinical care, aligning our operations with the current needs of Hornell and the surrounding communities. St. James Mercy Hospital continues...
