Three hospital management companies touted their strengths last week in proposals to the Allen County Regional Hospital board of trustees.
Trustees are studying options to lead ACRH into the future. On Wednesday evening, they heard presentations from their current management provider, Hospital Corporation of America (HCA), and two other companies with experience overseeing rural Kansas hospitals. Trustees will meet at 6 p.m. Tuesday to discuss the presentations and perhaps even indicate their preference.
Each company brings a very different approach to health care, though each pointed to advantages such as local control, cost savings and training opportunities.
