A task force made mostly of Allen County Regional Hospital board of trustees members will consider whether to stay with the hospitals current management group, HCA, or entertain other offers.
The task force was appointed Tuesday evening at a meeting of the ACRH Board of Trustees. Chairman Patti Boyd set the task forces first meeting for May 16, which will be done during an executive session.
The group will review the current management contract with HCA, including a timeline under which changes could be made. The current arrangement allows for contract review after five years (which began June 30, 2013), with a first renewal after two years and a second renewal after five years. Last year, the board of trustees voted to renew the two-year agreement in order to buy themselves time to review the matter before the next renewal comes due.
